Waterford on Tatum Apartments sells for $14M

ABI Multifamily announced on Friday the sale of a premier North Paradise Valley, 128-unit, multifamily property – Waterford on Tatum Apartments – for $14,175,000 or $110,742 per unit.

The selling entity purchased Waterford on Tatum Apartments, formally known as Tatum Gardens Apartments, in 2012 from AIMCO and completely repositioned the property through capital renovations.  Waterford on Tatum Apartments was originally built in 1985 and was renovated by the seller in 2013. The bulk of the renovation dollars were spent on the common areas.  A small percentage of the interiors were also renovated to prove out rental increases, so plausible buyer assumptions could be made for renovating the balance of the interiors.  ABI Multifamily is pleased to have been part of this sale, as it appears  to be one of the first Phoenix multifamily properties, post the downturn, to transact with a favorable in-place agency loan,” stated Rue Bax, Senior Managing Partner at ABI and one of the lead brokers for this transaction.
