    • Lone Star Funds this week agreed to buy Home Properties for about $7.6B and two months ago Brookfield Asset Management agreed to buy Associated Estates for roughly $2.5B.
    • "There is potential for something more to happen," says institutional REIT trader David Auerbach. "The smaller, local operators could be potential targets."
    • Valuation helps too, and though apartments have been one of the best-performing segments in real estate - with near-record occupancy, and rising rents and property values - the stock prices of apartment REITs have failed to keep up.
    • Potential targets, according to Jeffrey Langbaum of Bloomberg Intelligence, could be Mid-America Apartments (NYSE:MAA), Camden Property Trust (NYSE:CPT), or Post Properties (NYSE:PPS). All three operate in the South and trade at discounts to the sector's median price/FFO multiple. Their market caps are in the $3B-$6.5B range.
    • Other possible targets include Bluerock Residential Growth (NYSEMKT:BRG) and Preferred Apartments (NYSEMKT:APTS) - both with market caps of about $200M, making them easily digestible.

    • Home Properties is up 2.3% after agreeing to sell itself to Lone Star Funds, but the news isn't doing a whole lot to lift M&A animal spirits in the sector for now.
    • As part of the deal UDR (UDR +0.5%) will acquire from Lone Star up to $908M of Home Properties' apartments in the D.C. area. The purchase is expected to boost AFFO by $0.015 per share in 2016.
