    Apartment-only real estate investment trust Mid-America Apartment Communities  (NYSE: MAA  ) once again is snapping up properties, this time announcing Monday that it is adding multifamily housing operator Colonial Properties Trust (NYSE: CLP  ) to its portfolio in an $8.6 billion transaction. 

  • [By Rich Duprey]

    Multifamily real estate investment trust Colonial Properties Trust (NYSE: CLP  ) announced yesterday its third-quarter dividend of $0.21 per share, the same rate it’s paid for the past two quarters after raising the payout 17% from $0.18 per share.

  • [By Sean Williams]

    Another growth driver looks to be its pending $8.6 billion merger with Colonial Properties Trust (NYSE: CLP  ) . The combined entity would become the second-largest U.S. based residential REIT, with 85,000 apartment units. Opposition to the deal from some of Colonial’s shareholders does exist, but comparatively speaking, MAA is in great shape either way. It already has a high occupancy rate, and the addition of Colonial’s properties would only further serve to enhance its rental pricing power
