Monterra Apartment Homes, a 258-unit multifamily property in Phoenix, traded hands for $37.2 million, which equates to $144,186 per unit. The seller was Weidner Apartment Homes, while the buyer was an unnamed institutional investment manager.
Built in 2001, the property is easily accessible from Loop 202, the South Mountain Freeway, Arizona State Route 51, and Interstate 10. Valley Metro light rail and Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport are nearby, and Arizona State University, Biltmore Fashion Park, Phoenix Country Club are within easy reach.
Marcus & Millichap Institutional Property Advisors’ (IPA) Steve Gebing, and Cliff David represented the seller and procured the buyer.
Gebing says, “Drawn to the area by the increasing number of well-paying jobs, the Valley’s 20-to-34-year-old age group—the prime renter cohort—is growing five times faster than the national rate. The rising number of renters should continue to drive apartment demand marketwide, and vacancy is expected to drop below 5% for the first time since early 2001.”
