Press Release

Rockpoint Group, a global real estate investment management firm, today announced it has formed an exclusive $250 million joint venture with Resicap, a leading owner and operator of single-family rental homes based in Atlanta, GA. Resicap’s fully integrated real estate platform provides expertise in the acquisition, construction and property management of high-quality rental homes with operations in 34 states and 59 markets. Together, Rockpoint and Resicap expect to acquire, renovate, and lease 4,500-5,000 high-quality single-family rental homes at price points affordable to residents of established suburban neighborhoods in the Southeast U.S., Florida, and Texas.
