Newly Completed San Bernardino Multifamily Sells for 97% of List Price 

The Mogharebi Group has arranged the $21.5-million sale of Loma Villas, a newly constructed 70-unit multifamily community in San Bernardino. Alex Mogharebi, Otto Ozen and Bryan LaBar represented the seller, a regional owner/developer, in the sale to a Southern California-based private investor. 
“We demonstrated the project’s attractive pro forma rent numbers and highlighted that buyers could take advantage of the prearranged below-market rate loan package, which generated numerous qualified offers early on while still in the construction process,” said Ozen. 
The combination of Southern California’s severe winter storms and supply chain disruptions delayed the completion of construction for several months, according to LaBar.   
“In a rising interest rate environment, the biggest concern for a buyer is time, and the delays typically would have killed the deal,” he said. “Comforted by the desirable in-place financing, the buyer was great to work with and we closed at 97% of list.”
