HATFIELD, Pa., March 28, 2019 – Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), a leading commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, has announced the sale of 84 units in Montgomery County, Pa. The transaction closed for $8,562,500, and included Applegate Apartments and Applecore Apartments.
Andrew Townsend and Clarke Talone, both first vice president investments, Ridge MacLaren, senior vice president investments, and Daniel Bernard, associate, in Marcus & Millichap’s Philadelphia office, facilitated the transaction and represented the buyer, a limited liability company. The buyer plans to begin renovations to upgrade the property, and increase rents so they are more in-line with the market.
“Value-add multifamily is still in high demand,” says Talone. “Buyers are willing to accept low current returns for an opportunity to improve a property and generate higher rents.”
The seller was a family trust who had owned the property for decades. “The seller was the second generation of the original developer of the property, who had owned it for 48 years,” notes Townsend.
The transaction included the 72-unit Applegate Apartments in Hatfield and the 12-unit Applecore Apartments in Souderton. Applegate is located at 434 West Vine Street in Hatfield, Pa. Applecore is located at 464, 472, and 480 2nd Street in Souderton, Pa. Both towns are known for being excellent suburban locations, and are close to major employment centers.
