Parklynn Apartments is located at 5 Ruth Road in Wilmington, DE. The Property is comprised of 140 units, and is located in the Elsmere section of Wilmington. With high current and historical occupancy, Parklynn generated significant interest amongst investors. The marketing campaign generated more than 20 tours and nine offers.

“Parklynn is a very stable asset in a solid Wilmington rental market,” said Talone. “The property’s track record with regard to occupancy and lack of deferred maintenance made it very appealing to prospective investors.”

We saw very strong buyer activity from local and regional investors.”
