West Side Multifamily Owner Becomes Seller After Four-Year Hold

Interra Realty, a Chicago-based commercial real estate investment services firm, hast brokered the sale of a 35-unit multifamily property in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood on the city’s West Side for $2.66 million. The property, 5550 W. North Ave., traded for approximately $76,000 per unit. 

Interra managing partners Lucas Fryman and Ted Stratman, along with associate Sam Gutierrez, represented the seller, New York-based real estate investment group Raskin Risers. Fryman, Stratman and Gutierrez also represented the buyer, a local real estate investor and manager. 

“We represented Raskin Risers when the firm first acquired 5550 W. North Ave. in 2018, so this is now the second time Interra has brokered a deal for this building,” said Fryman. “The multiple sales of this property in just a relatively short span are representative of property appreciation and continued development in the neighborhood.”
