Marcus & Millichap Closes Sale of 10-Property Portfolio Near Jersey Shore

Marcus & Millichap closed the sale of the Ocean County Middle Market Portfolio, a 10-property, 310,023-square-foot retail and office portfolio in the Ocean County, NJ townships of Toms River and Brick. The portfolio sold for $46 million. 

“Leased to over 100 tenants, the portfolio is 70% occupied, giving our buyer stable in-place cash flow and significant value-add opportunity through lease up of vacant units, which will immediately boost returns,” said Alan Cafiero, senior managing director investments, Marcus & Millichap.  

Cafiero, Brent Hyldahl and Seth Goldberg of Marcus & Millichap, with Brad Nathanson, IPA senior managing director investments, represented seller Edele Hovnanian and procured the buyer, Horizon Equities.  

“Although Horizon Equities is a national firm, we started in New Jersey and have 82 years of family history here,” said Joe Kotler, founder and managing partner of Horizon. “The people of Central Jersey matter to us and this acquisition reflects our concern.”
