CBRE Arranges the Sale of Modera Apartments in Concord for Record Pricing

Concord, CA – May 13, 2015 – CBRE has announced the sale of The Modera Apartments, a 40-unit apartment building in Concord, California. The property sold for $7,350,000 or $183,750 per unit and $255.00 per square foot. The CAP rate was approximately 5.0% with a GRM of almost 12. The seller was Graham Chernoff of Cumberland Holdings and the buyers were local investors in a 1031 exchange. Keith Manson, Vice President of CBRE Oakland, represented both the seller and the buyer.

“The Modera Apartments were sold for one of the highest prices per unit in Concord history for renovated 60’s product. Despite the price per unit, the CAP rate was favorable to the buyer due to efficient management, an aggressive RUBS program and clean unit layouts making it easy to capture market rents.”

The Modera Apartments is a newly renovated, turnkey community originally built in 1969. The units feature one bedroom and two bedroom units with an on-site laundry facility, oversized balconies and patios, as well as swimming pool/barbeque area.

Keith Manson leads CBRE’s East Bay Investment Properties Multifamily Team and serves the investment needs of both property owners and buyers with a focus on the sale of multi-housing properties, land to develop apartment buildings and condominium conversions/reversions.
