Berkadia today announced the sale of two separate multifamily properties in Goodyear, Arizona, located less than a mile apart. Senior Managing Director Mark Forrester, Managing Director Ric Holway, Senior Director Dan Cheyne and Associate Tom Wolff of the Phoenix office completed the transactions, which closed within a week of one another and sold for more than $61.5 million combined.
“In both situations, the buyers were attracted to Goodyear’s emerging market,” said Forrester. “There’s quite a bit of long-term growth potential in this area and each property has been well maintained, increasing the value for investors.”
On May 24, Berkadia facilitated the $32.5 million sale of Serafina Apartment Homes, a garden-style property located at 15400 W. Goodyear Blvd North. The seller was Fairfield Centerra LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. The buyer was an entity formed by ReNue Properties.
The property features 268 units with one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. Built in 2009, apartment units feature kitchens with cherry and maple cabinetry, black GE appliances, a Roman oval soaking tub, oversized walk-in closets and a covered patio or terrace with storage room. The community offers residents a resort-style heated swimming pool and spa, outdoor fireplace, fully-equipped fitness center, clubhouse with plasma TVs, business center, picnic areas and playground.
In a separate transaction on May 19, the Phoenix team completed the $29.04 million sale of Lunaire Apartments, another garden-style multifamily property located at 949 S. Goodyear Blvd East. The seller was Fairfield Goodyear, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, and the buyer was RK Lunaire Apartments LLC, a Delaware corporation.
The property was also built in 2009 and contains 240 units, which come with one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans.
