Essex Realty Group, Inc will be marketing two multifamily real estate properties in Chicago

Essex Realty Lists Multifamily Assets in Bowmanville, Edgewater 

Essex Realty Group, Inc. has been selected to exclusively market two multifamily properties, 5355 N. Damen Ave. in Bowmanville and 1401 W. Highland Ave. in Edgewater. The properties are available individually. 

5355 N. Damen is an 11-unit apartment building that was renovated in the late 2000s. It’s listed for sale at $2,350,000 by the Essex team of Rick Ofman, Doug Imber, Kate Varde, Jaimie Steinher and Dan Shepherd. 

The team is also marketing 1401 W. Highland, a 12-unit apartment building just steps from Loyola University’s main campus, also renovated in the late 2000s. The asking price is $2,850,000. 

“These are terrific multifamily assets that multifamily investors are always searching for: a value-add opportunity without having to do an expensive and time-consuming renovation project,” said Ofman. “With favorably sized units and strong demand for housing in these neighborhoods, a new owner can achieve tremendous upside.”
