The Arcadia Cove community, built in 1996, features a 24-hour fitness center, a resort-style swimming pool and spa area and a newly renovated resident clubhouse with a billiards table. Select updated unit interiors feature wood-style flooring, granite countertops, energy-efficient stainless steel appliances, a fireplace and a full-size washer and dryer in the unit.

“Investors are still attracted to the strong demand drivers in Phoenix and this transaction is a testament to the region’s resilient economic appeal,” said Asher Gunter, CBRE’s vice chairman. “Maricopa County was the largest-gaining county in the nation in 2022. Our employment base continues adding jobs, and new companies continue to move to the region. Phoenix’s underlying multifamily demand fundamentals are among the best in the U.S.”

Metro Phoenix posted over 6,500 units of multifamily absorption through the first half of 2023, the top-performing absorption total of all U.S. metros year-to-date, according to CBRE research.

We look forward to implementing our value-added business plan at Arcadia Cove as we explore additional acquisition opportunities across the sunbelt markets.”
