ABI Multifamily announced the $10,750,000 sale of the 138-Unit, Paradise North Apartments located on 40th Street, just North of Bell Road in the Northeast Phoenix/North Paradise Valley submarket.

“Paradise North Apartments is a unique property comprised of large, 987 SF average, Two Bedroom / Two Bathroom unit types (99% of units) with select units featuring private enclosed backyards,” states Alon Shnitzer, Senior Managing Partner and lead broker representing the Seller for this transaction. “The Sellers’ in this transaction had owned the property for 12 years and only completed renovations on handful of units, leaving lots of interior and exterior renovation upside for the Buyer. At close of escrow the property was 99% occupied.”

Paradise North is located at 17805 North 40th Street and 18002 North 40th Place, in Phoenix, AZ. The property was originally built in 1984. The 138-unit property is composed of almost all two bedroom units, with two community swimming pools, on-site laundry facilities and ample covered parking. Paradise North’s attractive North Paradise Valley submarket location, i.e. near high transportation corridors (SR-51, Loop 101, Bell Rd and 32nd St), hospitals (Mayo Clinic and Paradise Valley Hospital), high schools (North Canyon and Horizon High Schools) and regional employers, produces a tremendous amount of prospective resident interest and over the years has maintained a strong occupancy.

According to Rue Bax, Senior Managing Partner and lead broker representing the buyer, “The Buyer, FPA Multifamily, will be able to capture many residents displaced by the dramatically rising rents in the nearby area, especially in Scottsdale, less than a few miles to the East from Paradise North. FPA also has the ability to capitalize on an undeveloped piece of land that was conveyed with the sale and is considering developing a stand-alone clubhouse/rental office or adding additional units on this vacant land.”
