CBRE Completes Sale of 256-Unit Apartment Community in Reno, NV

Reno, Nevada– CBRE’s National Loan Sale Advisory Group and CBRE Reno’s Aiman Noursoultanova recently arranged the sale of a Class A REO, 256-unit garden-style multifamily community known as the Villas at D’Andrea in Sparks, Nevada.  CBRE’s also arranged financing for the acquisition through its Debt & Equity Group.

CBRE represented the Seller, and the property sold at a price of $32,000,000 or $125,000 per door. The property sold to Oakmont Properties, a Northern California based private investor.

The property listing garnered a record level of activity with both private and institutional buyers submitting bids and ultimately led to a record price for this property type in the Northern Nevada region.

“The attractiveness of the multifamily investment in Northern Nevada is supported by strong existing fundamentals in the market, as well as substantial forecasted job and wage growth in the region”, said Aiman Noursoultanova. “In addition, the Tesla announcement and the property’s proximity to the new Gigafactory supported the investor’s confidence in the future growth and stability of the asset.”

Noursoultanova believes that the multifamily market will continue to perform exceptionally well in the region and will continue to garner strong interest from the national investor community.
