Marcus & Millichap arranged the sale of Beechwood Gardens, a 160-unit apartment property located in Philadelphia, PA

PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 15, 2013 – Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services, the nation’s largest real estate investment services firm, has announced the sale of Beechwood Gardens, a 160-unit apartment property located in Philadelphia, PA, according to Spencer Yablon, regional manager of the firm’s Philadelphia office. The asset sold for $13,000,000, which represents $81,250 per unit.

Clarke Talone, Ridge MacLaren, and Andrew Townsend, investment specialists in Marcus & Millichap’s Philadelphia office, facilitated the transaction between the seller, a New York based limited liability company and the buyer, a local limited liability company.

“Beechwood Gardens represented an excellent opportunity for the buyer to crack in to the strong, Northeast Philadelphia apartment market.  The sellers had done a great job of maintaining the property and were maintaining occupancy in the mid-to-high 90 percent range.” states Talone.

Beechwood Gardens is located at 9805 Haldeman Ave. in Philadelphia, with easy access to U.S. Route 1 and Interstate 95. Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority regional rail lines provide convenient transportation to CenterCity, Philadelphia.

Built in 1967 on 5.7 acres, BeechwoodGardens contains 80 one-bedroom and 80 two-bedroom apartments.  Over two thirds of the units had been renovated.  The buyer assumed an agency loan, with a rate higher than today’s market rates.  “This is indicative of the fact that buyers are eager to acquire quality multifamily assets.  Well-priced real estate in solid in-fill locations will continue to generate significant buyer interest in this market,” adds MacLaren.
