High-Vacancy San Bernardino Multifamily Finds Buyer

CBRE’s Eric Chen represented both the buyer and seller in the sale of a three-property multifamily portfolio in San Bernardino. 79 Lotus Apts, LLC purchased the properties for $12.047 million from an undisclosed seller. 

The properties total 79 units and include: 

  • Lotus, a 19-unit property located at 535 Wier Road. 
  • Steel Park Manor, a 32-unit property located at 505 Wier Road. 
  • Wier Park, a 28-unit property located at 2605-2619 Flint Way. 

“This property had many challenges our team needed to overcome, with 21% vacancy and having to identify the right lender to close the transaction,” said Chen. “However, this transaction signals the continued appetite from the private capital space for multifamily investments in the Inland Empire for value-add opportunities.” 

The portfolio is located within the South Pointe neighborhood near downtown Loma Linda. The properties offer a mix of one- and two-bedroom floorplans and provide convenient highway access.
