Operationally, leasing activity and gross maturation showed sustained momentum successful nan 4th quarter, pinch 9 retired of our 10 same-store markets achieving gross maturation of 8.2% aliases better. The apical 5 being Tampa astatine 18.8%, South Florida astatine 17.6%, Atlanta, 16.2%; Phoenix, 14.9% and Nashville, 14.4%.

The leaders were Tampa astatine 10.1, Orlando astatine 9.9, South Florida 8.8. DFW 8.3 and Raleigh derm astatine 7.6.

On nan occupancy front, we're pleased to study that Q4 same-store occupancy remained complete 94%, positioning america good for 2023. And arsenic of this morning, nan portfolio is 96.3% leased pinch a patient 60-day inclination of 92%.

Operationally, nan portfolio knowledgeable exceptional gross maturation successful '22, pinch each our markets achieving maturation of astatine slightest 8% aliases better. The apical 5 were Tampa astatine 18.4%; South Florida, 16.8%; Nashville astatine 15.9%; Phoenix astatine 15 4%; and Orlando astatine 14.7%.

Turning to our acquisition activity for 2022. On nan buy-side, we acquired 2 assets successful April past year, nan Idera and Sandy Springs, Georgia and estates connected Maryland and Phoenix, Arizona. These purchases added 562 units to our portfolio for a full acquisition value of $143.4 cardinal and provided a further opportunity for our rehab pipeline successful 2 of our best-performing markets, further enhancing our adjacent 4 years of maturation and net profile.

On nan disposition front, arsenic Brian said, we sold Hollister connected December 30 of past year, generating a 13.5% levered IRR, a 2x aggregate connected finance and astir $21 cardinal of nett proceeds utilized to salary down nan equilibrium connected nan in installments facility. And arsenic antecedently reported arsenic Brian conscionable mentioned, we're nether statement to sold Old Farm and Stone Creek for $135 million. These income will make a 24.8% levered IRR, a 2.9% aggregate connected finance and proceeds of $63.4 cardinal to salary nan remaining equilibrium connected this in installments installation down to zero.

Turning to 2023 guidance. As Brian said, we're excited to guideline to 9% to 13% successful same-store pinch a midpoint of 11%. Across our same-store properties, we're forecasting a 10.5% to 12.6% rental income maturation comprised of nan pursuing components: a 93.5% to 95.1% beingness occupancy, pinch highest occupancy exemplary for Q3 and Q4; a 5.9% earn-in use from nan outstanding maturation successful trade-outs we achieved successful 2022; a 4% to 5% marketplace rent maturation successful 2023 pinch 2.3% realized this year; and an further 1.4% apical statement maturation attributable to value-add CapEx spending. This equates to 9.9% to 11.9% full gross growth.

On nan disbursal side, we're forecasting a 7.5% summation successful controllable expenses comprised of a 3.8% summation successful R&M and turnover costs, a 10.7% summation successful labor, a 3.9% summation successful advertising, a 4.9% summation successful G&A. And for non-controllables, we're forecasting an summation of 10.3% to 11.2%, comprised of a 3.2% summation successful utilities, a 17.7% summation successful security and a 12.1% summation successful existent property taxes.

From a geographical perspective, we're experiencing -- we're expecting peculiar spot crossed nan pursuing markets: notwithstanding existent property taxation headwinds successful astir of them. We expect Raleigh to turn same-store NOI by 16.5% to 18.5% owed to 13% to 15% budgeted gross maturation and an interior renewal scheme for 132 units, targeting $240 rent premiums and a debased 20s ROI. We expect South Florida to turn same-store NOI by astir 16% to 18%, driven by 12% to 14% budgeted gross maturation and a continued value-add execution pinch 242 afloat interior portion upgrades planned targeting $260 rent premiums and a mid- to precocious teens ROI.

We expect Tampa to turn same-store NOI by astir 15.5% to 17.5%, driven by 13% to 15% budgeted gross growth, a continued value-add execution pinch 112 afloat and partial interior portion upgrades planned targeting $62 rent premiums present successful nan debased 30s ROI connected predominantly little rotation partial rental.

And finally, we expect Las Vegas to turn same-store NOI by astir 14% to 16%, driven by 11% to 13% budgeted gross growth, a continued value-add execution connected 162 portion upgrades planned, generating $140 mean rent premium successful nan high-teen ROI. All of our different markets are expected to spot NOI maturation betwixt 7.5% to 11.5% and we spot nan aforesaid economical tailwinds described successful our top-performing markets. As you know, we proceed to beryllium an soul maturation business astatine our core. And to that end, our guidance includes nan pursuing assumptions regarding our value-add programs.

We expect to complete 1,370 afloat interior upgrades astatine an mean costs of $13,150 per unit, generating $214 mean monthly premium aliases astir a 19.5% return connected investment. We expect to complete 871 partial and 2-year upgrades astatine an mean costs of $5,250 per unit, generating a $91 mean monthly premium aliases 18.6% ROI. We expect to complete 844 washer dryer installs astatine an mean costs of $1,030 per unit, generating a $51 mean monthly premium aliases 47% return connected investment. We expect to complete 3,150 further Smart Home Technology packages generating a $40 to $45 mean monthly premium and a 48.8% return connected investment.

Now for a little overview of our 2023 acquisition and disposition guidance. We're assuming 0 to complete $250 cardinal successful acquisitions. Obviously, is wide reported pinch organization superior mostly remaining connected nan sidelines. There's not been galore charismatic buying opportunities. Plus fixed our costs of capital, we've prioritized equilibrium expanse cleanup, banal repurchases and soul maturation complete outer maturation pursuits.

On nan disposition front, that we said a fewer times here, pinch nan Houston marketplace exit good connected its way. again, we expect to complete nan disposition of Old Farm and Stone Creek for $135 cardinal of gross proceeds successful early Q2. Disposition activity could scope nan higher extremity of our scope later successful nan year, if we're capable to place assets that tin beryllium accretively added via a tax-efficient superior recycling strategy that you guys person seen america do complete nan past fewer years.

As Brian mentioned, we stay transparent connected our NAV. We person adjusted NAV downward to a midpoint of $72.83 per share. That's utilizing a 5.15% headdress complaint connected 2023 NOI astatine nan midpoint.

So successful closing, truthful acold successful 2023, we're disconnected to a bully start. We are expecting to spot continued spot and resilience successful nan mediate marketplace rental housing. And arsenic we participate this year, we're optimistic that 2023 will beryllium different twelvemonth of beardown performance. We consciousness we're positioned to some withstand a downturn and yet still poised to grow.

That's each I person for prepared remarks. I admit our squad to activity present astatine NexPoint and BH for nan execution.

Brian Mitts

Great. Thanks, Matt. Let's spell up and move it complete for questions. I deliberation we sewage a mates already queue up.

Question-and-Answer Session

Operator

[Operator Instructions] Our first mobility will travel from nan statement of Sam [ph] pinch Credit Suisse.

Unidentified Analyst

I'm connected for Tile [ph] today. Just wondering if you could stock your thoughts connected really -- erstwhile you guys framed retired nan guidance, really you deliberation astir nan economical outlook and nan leasing situation that went into nan precocious extremity and debased extremity of nan guidance range?

Matt McGraner

Yes, I'll return it. Sam, nan economical situation is mostly nan NOI assumption. So we deliberation that nan scope of 9% to 13% is reasonably tight. It represents our position of nan spot successful nan mediate marketplace lodging and immoderate weaknesses we'll spot will beryllium connected nan little end. The variability that you spot successful nan halfway FFO numbers are mostly based connected liking expense. And nan wide scope is owed to nan truth that we shocked each broadside by 50 ground points connected nan surfer curve. And we conscionable felt, fixed nan volatility successful nan existent environment, that we'll person complete nan adjacent 4th aliases truthful pinch nan Fed gathering that, that was appropriate. Now arsenic we spell guardant passim nan year, we'll beryllium capable to tighten that. And we expect that we will beryllium capable to tighten it and past hopefully execute nan higher end.

Unidentified Analyst

Got it. Got it. Maybe switching gears to nan leasing side. On nan renewals, show me, what person nan conversations been for illustration pinch nan residents? Are you seeing much pushback from these people, immoderate group are noting financial hardships. Just thing anecdotally that's absorbing mightiness be? I mean I would emotion to perceive that.

Matt McGraner

Yes. Not truthful overmuch nan conversations, I think, are reasonably easier than they were successful nan 2nd and 3rd quarters of past twelvemonth erstwhile you're expanding residents successful nan teens and moreover debased 20s. So we're sending retired notices successful nan mid- to precocious azygous digits connected renewals today. and they're mostly being absorbed without immoderate pushback.

Operator

Your adjacent mobility will travel from nan statement of Michael Lewis pinch Truist Securities.

Michael Lewis

The same-store maturation guidance evidently is very high. I was conscionable wondering if location was thing notable driving that specified arsenic changing creation of nan pool, units coming backmost online that were possibly retired of service, nan effect of nan portion upgrades? Or possibly a amended mobility is really overmuch your portion upgrade programme is contributing to that same-store gross growth?

Matt McGraner

Yes, it's astir 2%, Michael, from further CapEx spend. And nan other, I think, spot successful nan numbers comes from our earn-in and nan beardown increases passim nan twelvemonth of past year. That number has been reported done our adjacent group to beryllium successful nan 4% to 5% range. We're conscionable a small spot higher, conscionable short of 6%. So pinch that use and tailwind down us, propulsion immoderate CapEx connected it and past conscionable nan dearth of affordable housing, we consciousness for illustration this is appropriate.

Michael Lewis

Got you. And past you talked astir this a small spot but immoderate colour you could supply connected January and February truthful far? So I deliberation you said occupancy was up to 96.3% today. I deliberation that was 94.1% successful 4Q. So that's a really large move. Any colour connected what's happening there? And I deliberation you talked astir rent spreads a small bit; truthful we covered that.

Matt McGraner

Yes, you bet. So nan 96.3% number was nan lease percentage. The occupancy is still successful nan debased 94s. Sorry if that wasn't clear. nan blended numbers for Q1 truthful acold person been beautiful strong, disconnected a small spot from Q4 but successful nan mid-4% to 5% scope -- 4.5% to 5% range, excuse maine for January [indiscernible].

Michael Lewis

I deliberation you were are. I deliberation you did say, astatine least. That's my fault. And past conscionable lastly, you're astir apt not capable to -- I don't cognize if you're capable to remark connected headdress rates connected nan 2 properties nether statement to beryllium sold. You already gave a batch of specifications connected that. But my question, I guess, is much astir -- it sounds for illustration there's still beardown investor request for your assets, moreover though we've heard a batch astir transaction marketplace slowing owed to this wide bid-ask spread. It sounds for illustration you're not seeing that weakness successful pricing for your stuff. Anything you could remark connected nan transaction environment? I cognize you adjusted your headdress rates successful your NAV a small bit. But what are you seeing benignant of connected plus pricing?

Matt McGraner

Yes. I deliberation that for -- we can't remark connected nan pricing for nan last 2. Those were struck astatine astir successful place. I deliberation that we caught a small spot of nan lipid revival and immoderate interests erstwhile location is astir apt a scarcity premium. I don't deliberation that, that number hits today, we conscionable don't spot immoderate benignant of transactions astatine each correct now that are that are retired location that are attractive. And nan ones that are retired location are -- that are attractive, I often person 7, 8, 9 years of in-place assumable debt. It's -- that was put connected successful nan little times. And truthful to nan grade we spot 1 of those, we'll cheque it retired but there's conscionable not. I mean I would opportunity that nan volumes are down 60%, 70% year-over-year successful nan first quarter. So I deliberation that we'll spot immoderate capitulation from sellers astatine immoderate constituent successful Q2. Hopefully, that comes successful statement pinch nan Fed gathering and wherever they spot liking rates going successful a pivot aliases a pause. But I deliberation until that time, you conscionable want to beryllium capable to value indebtedness we'll beryllium capable to value that. And that's what we need. We conscionable request certainty of a scope successful nan indebtedness markets. And until we get that, I don't deliberation we'll person a batch of activity.

Operator

Your adjacent mobility will travel from nan statement of Tayo Okusanya pinch Credit Suisse.

Tayo Okusanya

Yes. connected your NAV, again, I admit each nan transparency you springiness connected that. The 515 headdress complaint that you're applying, could you conscionable locomotion america done a small spot of -- arsenic you mentioned, there's not a batch of transaction activity but really do you benignant of travel up pinch Fab arsenic benignant of nan due headdress complaint because again? It does bespeak immoderate run decompression versus nan past clip you provided america that number. But conscionable funny really you get comfortable pinch that?

Matt McGraner

Yes, you bet. I deliberation it's champion informed by nan brokerage organization moreover arsenic imperfect arsenic it is. We're still getting BOBs connected our assets. And truthful really, it's a calculation, Tayo, of what a caller purchaser successful nan brokerage organization successful nan brokerage communities position would request successful position of a return for either levered IRR aliases an unlevered IRR basis. And today, that's astir apt 6.5% to 7% unlevered IRR. -- which equates fundamentally pinch rate travel and utilizing a reasonable terminal headdress complaint exit successful a 5-year clasp it equates to astir a 5% to 5.3%. And that's -- possibly that's overly simplistic but these are coming from nan tills, nan CBREs, nan JLLs of nan world. They're connected nan beforehand lines of transactions, notwithstanding there's not galore of them but that's their position and I thin to work together pinch it.

Tayo Okusanya

Got you. That's helpful. And past -- from a rent power perspective, again, a batch of conversations and a batch of CBD markets astir this. I mean, connected nan margin, possibly there's immoderate worldly successful Orlando, Florida. But conscionable curious, successful your markets, thing bubbling nether immoderate imaginable effect it could person connected your portfolio?

Matt McGraner

Not really. We're reasonably -- we deliberation we're reasonably still insulated from astir of it fixed nan geographical footprint of nan portfolio we are monitoring nan Florida authorities aliases nan Florida proposals beautiful cautiously but I deliberation those person a agelong measurement to spell successful benignant of an uphill [ph] battle. We besides are alert of nan White House's proposals and what person you. Across each of our businesses, I deliberation nan lightning instrumentality aliases nan ray rod, if you will, is much focused connected single-family rental correct now than multi. So it's thing we're alert of and monitoring but we don't spot it impacting our portfolio arsenic it sits correct now.

Operator

Your adjacent mobility will travel from nan statement of Buck Horne pinch Raymond James.

Buck Horne

If you could talk a small spot astir nan CapEx fund for nan coming twelvemonth and besides conscionable nan spending that was -- peculiarly nan attraction CapEx broadside of things, you guys gave awesome item connected benignant of nan rehab expenditures. But arsenic acold arsenic attraction CapEx, nan numbers were up beautiful large this year. And conscionable benignant of wondering what you guys are reasoning astir for adjacent twelvemonth aliases this year, I'm sorry?

Matt McGraner

Brian, you return them.

Brian Mitts

Yes, I'll return that. So arsenic we look astatine this year, I deliberation going in, year-over-year, we spot astir nan aforesaid successful position of nan ROI generating CapEx for nan interiors. We've sewage an presumption connected each of nan 38 assets, ex nan 2 Houston deals. So we person activity successful each spot successful each market. In position of wherever we spot I deliberation nan year-over-year recurring CapEx, I deliberation we spot that number being beautiful stable. I deliberation really 2022 was a benignant of return to normal post-COVID situation for R&M and move cost. We've seen, arsenic Matt mentioned, astir 50% retention. So we had a small spot higher year-over-year word cost, past I judge 2021, we were much successful nan benignant of 56% scope return aliases for retention, sorry. So, I deliberation that wherever we spot things today, we're doing what we tin to power nan disbursal broadside of nan equation.

We're besides seeing given, I think, nan elevation successful building costs, nan benignant of unopen disconnected of nan proviso pipeline there, fixed nan costs of superior successful nan market, we are seeing a small spot much expertise to discuss value pinch vendors and that's been helpful. There's a larger readiness astatine Workforce now to thief america out. So we consciousness for illustration nan outlook is good. We person a patient free rate travel number. I deliberation that -- arsenic you look astatine nan year, we're targeting astir 25% -- aliases $25 cardinal of free rate travel aft each nan CapEx and we expect to usage that to nan grade that there's an opportunity to bargain backmost banal to deleverage, etcetera. So we consciousness bully astir nan outlook overall.

Buck Horne

Okay, that's helpful. So successful position of nan stable, conscionable to clarify, erstwhile you're talking astir unchangeable recurring CapEx. Does that see -- I conjecture you guys person a class called nonrecurring attraction CapEx. Do you deliberation that's unchangeable arsenic good aliases immoderate different benignant of nonrecurring items that we should beryllium alert of?

Brian Mitts

We do. We do. We deliberation that's stable. As Matt besides mentioned, talking astir acquisition and disposition activity for nan twelvemonth arsenic benignant of contented for us. We look astatine nan bottommost 10% of nan portfolio that whitethorn person immoderate of that greater benignant of deferred attraction and nonrecurring CapEx and those are typically nan assets that we'll look to -- to nan grade that they bid retired successful nan marketplace that we for illustration return advantage of, truthful arsenic to debar that benignant of 7- to 10-year deferred attraction CapEx and nan large summons items. So we're decidedly conscious of that. We deliberation that nan mostly of nan portfolio has been done nan benignant of repositioning phase. And we've taken attraction of a batch of that deferred and we look to negociate that effectively. But yes, I deliberation that nan CapEx outlook for this twelvemonth is beautiful unchangeable year-over-year and nan ROI CapEx, we proceed to deed those ROI targets and proceed to get nan premium. I cognize we've seen immoderate elevation and nan costs of afloat interior upgrades. But I deliberation that, that really speaks to our expertise to pull a higher demographic. So we're spending much but we're successful Florida marketplace generating a $300-plus premium connected those upgrades. So nan extremity justifies nan means.

Matt McGraner

Bob, conscionable to adhd to that, nan R&M CapEx summation that we're modeling for this twelvemonth accrued conscionable nan recurring number is 5.1% is our summation there.

Buck Horne

Got it. All right. Perfect. That's very helpful. One different 1 for me, if I tin sneak it in, is conscionable reasoning done nan -- again, going backmost to nan same-store gross guidance and nan specifications you provided location but it sounds for illustration blended lease rates, caller and renewals, you're still benignant of seeing a sequential deceleration I conjecture you were benignant of successful nan debased 6% range. During nan 4th quarter, it sounds for illustration it's down to benignant of betwixt 4% and 5% done February which is benignant of now successful statement pinch what you're reasoning marketplace rent maturation for nan twelvemonth is going to be. So I'm benignant of curious, do you deliberation that -- what's giving you nan assurance that marketplace rates are going to stabilize successful that 4% to 5% scope and not proceed to decelerate pinch evidently difficult year-over-year comps and imaginable proviso unit retired there?

Matt McGraner

Yes. That's a bully question, 1 that I deliberation we're prepared for. The marketplace -- nan submarkets that we're in, notwithstanding nan truth that nan markets we're in, you're right, they do person a ton of supply. So nan guys and nan squad dug down a small spot amended and dug into nan submarkets. And successful our submarkets, whether it's Atlanta that has 8% inventory maturation and 23,000 deliveries, there's only 286 successful our submarkets successful Marietta and San Springs. So that's an example. And past there's, let's telephone it, return Dallas, for illustration which is historically high, 36,000, 40,000 deliveries, our submarkets are cumulatively seeing deliveries this twelvemonth of 700. So we're mostly suburban, mostly affordable.

The recurring resident load is still successful a delta betwixt Class A and SFR that's $400, $500, $600 distant from us. So I don't deliberation it's excessively overmuch to inquire aliases excessively overmuch to underwrite that 4% to 5%, 6%, 7%.

Your adjacent mobility will travel from nan statement of Michael Lewis pinch Truist Securities.

Michael Lewis

I jumped backmost successful nan queue because I was reiterated successful our statement this morning, I've been captious astir your leverage aliases astatine slightest concerned astir what it's going to mean for your net maturation and we're seeing immoderate of that successful your 2023 guidance. So possibly this isn't nan correct measurement to deliberation astir it but much than half of your 2023 FFO is going to beryllium coming from liking complaint swaps. -- fortunately, a batch of those swaps don't pain disconnected until 2026 and you're evidently doing a batch of activity to reside this resistance that higher liking disbursal is going to be. But I guess, -- do you deliberation it's going to beryllium imaginable to turn net complete nan adjacent fistful of years erstwhile those hedges expire? And what, if thing other beyond what you've already done, are you looking astatine doing to benignant of position yourself betwixt now and then?

Matt McGraner

Yes. I deliberation it's a bully question. We deliberation astir it a small spot otherwise and it's nan measurement we've ever thought astir it. And this isn't nan first run-up successful liking rates that we've been through. And I deliberation this is nan fastest that it's been perchance successful history. So we should beryllium a small spot of use of a uncertainty there. Our position has ever been that we're an soul maturation and superior recycling company. we're going to hole it, we're going to bargain it, hole it and we're going to waste it and recycle nan superior and turn NOI that way. And successful our experience, nan champion measurement to do that is to put connected elastic liking complaint aliases elastic indebtedness that allows america to waste and not person a bunch of transaction aliases defeasance aliases output attraction costs. And our acquisition that having fixed-rate indebtedness for illustration that has eroded a batch much worth aliases arsenic overmuch worth arsenic we seen elsewhere.

So that's conscionable our philosophy. And to nan grade that you're successful 2024, 2025, 2026, a caller buyer, whether it's an individual plus aliases nan institution aliases portfolio, they will dictate their ain financing and we conscionable deliberation that that's valuable. That's conscionable much valuable. It provides much flexibility, much optionality to nan marketplace. And successful nan meantime, we're going to do our champion to proceed to hedge nan near-term liking rates, nan champion we can.

I will now manus nan convention backmost complete to guidance for immoderate closing remarks.
