Investment Activity

 

On June 28, 2019, FS Credit Real Estate Income Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) originated a $28.5 million floating-rate senior loan to refinance the Hilton Garden Inn – Davis Downtown (the “Property”) with an initial term of 36 months. The Property is a 119-key, select-service hotel located in Davis, CA with approximately 6,000 square feet of ground floor retail and a full-service restaurant. The property was ranked the #1 hotel in Davis, CA according to Trip Advisor prior to its recent upgrade and renovation. The owner of the Property is a repeat borrower from Rialto Capital Management, LLC, the Company’s sub-adviser, and purchased the Property in an off-market transaction.

The Company believes the Property benefits from attractive market fundamentals, with high barriers to entry and strong demand drivers. The Property is located in the heart of downtown Davis, a 10-minute walk to the University of California-Davis campus, as well as and within walking distance to many local attractions, including the John Natsoulas Gallery, the Pence Gallery and the award-winning Davis Farmers market. The market’s and Property’s strong ties to the University of California-Davis may provide insulation from economic downturns. For example, during the 2008 financial crisis, the Davis hotel market fared significantly better than the U.S. hotel market.

The Property is located in the greater Sacramento-Roseville-Arden-Arcade, CA MSA, approximately 20 minutes from Downtown Sacramento. The Greater Sacramento area continues to experience positive demographic and economic growth. Over the last 5 years, the Sacramento MSA population has grown at a rate more than 1.6x the national average. In 2018, Davis had an unemployment rate of 2.7%, compared to 3.7% for the metro, 4.2% for California, and 3.9% for the nation. Over the past two years, the Greater Sacramento hotel market saw RevPAR growth of 9.4%, among the highest rates of growth in the nation across the hospitality sector.
