“Given that the average single family home list price in Ahwatukee is ~$435,000 and the average household income in the immediate 2 mile radius surrounding the property is over $80,000, the interest in this property offering was very high and from many national and even international investors. Over 24 formal property tours were provided and about the same in number of total offers presented to the selling entity. The buyer in this transaction already owns property in the submarket and the selling entity had confidence they would perform,” states Alon Shnitzer, Senior Managing Partner and lead broker for the selling entity.
“It’s very exciting to represent and assist the buying entity in expanding their footprint in the Ahwatukee submarket of Phoenix. ConAm currently owns and/or manages 14 properties in the greater Phoenix MSA and this acquisition will allow them to increase the number of units in the ever growing southeast part of Phoenix. With the nearby Loop 202, named South Mountain Freeway, scheduled to be completed as early as 2019, this excellent location will see even further demand from renters,” states Rue Bax, Senior Managing Partner and lead broker for the buying entity.
The buyer, ConAm, is a private investment group based in San Diego, California.
The seller, FSC Realty, is a privately owned limited liability company based in Beverly Hills, California.
