Pacaso Launches Innovative Luxury Second Home Co-ownership Platform in Jackson Hole

Pacaso | November 15, 2021

Pacaso, the leading real estate platform that helps people buy and co-own a luxury second home, today announced that it has expanded its service to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The company listed its first property in Jackson alongside plans to support the Community Housing Fund and Teton Habitat for Humanity.

"Jackson Hole's majestic beauty coupled with its wide array of year-round outdoor recreational activities has made it a highly desirable location for second home buyers, many of whom are looking to enjoy their newfound remote work flexibility from the mountains. As in many mountain towns, this demand has increased the strain on housing inventory needed by the workforce. Pacaso offers a better way; co-ownership empowers buyers to uplevel their focus toward luxury properties, and away from lower price points."

- Pacaso Co-founder and CEO Austin Allison

For 2022, Pacaso will be supporting the local Community Housing Fund with an upfront donation of $10K and an ongoing donation of $5K for each home Pacaso purchases. The company will also appeal directly to the sellers' agent to match its giving for each home and partner with Fund leaders to encourage others in the real estate community to give. Pacaso will also donate lightly used furniture and home goods from the acquisition of new homes to Teton Habitat for Humanity.

"I am delighted Pacaso has chosen to proactively participate in the Community Housing Fund. Broad-based, sustained participation from the real estate community is critically needed to support our community members facing housing insecurity. I look forward to partnering with Pacaso to grow this fund's impact."

- Devon Viehman, Associate Broker of the Viehman Group.

Pacaso partners with all interested real estate agents and brokerages in markets where it operates. Real estate agents representing buyers who purchase a share of a Pacaso home receive a 3% referral commission in addition to 500 RSUs of Pacaso stock as a referral equity bonus. Agents in Jackson Hole who are interested in working with Pacaso can learn more on the company's website.

Pacaso's first listing in the area is a contemporary five-bedroom home situated atop the ridge of Spring Creek with sweeping views of Sleeping Indian Mountain and the Grand Tetons. The home was designed by Ward Blake architects.

JLL Income Property Trust Acquires Grocery-Anchored Retail Center in Las Vegas

JLL Income Property Trust, Inc. and LaSalle Investment Management | August 10, 2022

JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT with approximately $6.8 billion in portfolio assets announced today the acquisition of Silverado Square, a 48,000-square-foot retail center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The retail property is anchored by Sprouts Farmers Market, shadow anchored by CVS, and includes a parcel that is fully entitled for nearly 5,000 square feet of rentable retail space. Silverado Square was acquired for $24.4 million. "Silverado Square is a well-located property that fits within our thesis of acquiring high-quality, grocery-anchored retail centers, Its location next to two major thoroughfares and near a large master-planned community, along with its strong tenant roster and long-term lease commitments, should bode well for the center's continued success in generating stable income. As we saw throughout the pandemic, grocery-anchored retail is resilient, and can continue to provide returns for our stockholders throughout volatile market conditions." -JLL Income Property Trust President and CEO Allan Swaringen Constructed in 2018, Silverado Square benefits from a highly visible location on two thoroughfares in the Silverado Ranch master-planned community, which is home to more than 55,000 people. The property ranks in the top quartile of LaSalle Research & Strategy's proprietary Supermarket Trading Area Rating System (STARS), which ranks more than 40,000 grocery-anchored retail centers in the US. The high score owes to Silverado Square's proximity to population density and median income that are both above the national average. The property has a weighted average lease term of more than eight years, including a 15-year lease signed by Sprouts in 2018 that features 10 percent rent escalations every five years. Overall, the property is 98 percent leased. The fully entitled parcel, directly to the east of the existing structures, provides JLL Income Property Trust with the opportunity to build nearly 5,000 square feet of additional retail space and drive further net operating income. The new building will be leased by three tenants and is scheduled for completion later this year. JLL Income Property Trust's grocery-anchored retail allocation is 23 properties in 13 key markets valued at nearly $850 million and representing approximately 13 percent of its overall portfolio.
