San Francisco, CA July 19, 2017 а Ridge Capital Investors, LLC and an affiliate of Andell Inc. have acquired Sierra Fair Apartments, a 204-unit property for $22.35 million. The Class B property is situated in the highly amenitized southern Arden-Arcade submarket of Sacramento, a convenient, in-fill, вA+г location near the regionеs most afпuent housing communities, including Arden Park, Sierra Oaks, and Arden Park Vista, as well as its most popular and luxurious shopping centers.
Sierra Fair was originally developed in 1963 and is a well maintained, 96% occupied property. In keeping with the newer, high-end retail and lifestyle developments in the immediate area, Ridge plans a significant interior and exterior transformation of the property to bring it up to one of the most sought-after places to live in the area. New amenities such as two clubhouses, outdoor entertaining areas, and a state of the art fitness center will deliver the best that the area has to offer.
A primary driver of the investment for Ridge is the very healthy Sacramento housing dynamic, which positioned the region to the number one rental growth market in 2016, and to a top-five projection for 2017. Much of this performance is a result of excellent job growth fundamentals, yet very low delivery of new housing inventory this cycle. Year over year rental growth exceeded 7% per Yardi Matrix and the immediate neighborhood is expected to achieve double digit rent growth in 2017. Unemployment in the region has fallen to 5%, led by private sector growth in healthcare and technology.
FPI Management will provide management services for the partnership. FPI is one of the largest multifamily property management companies in the nation, managing over 100,000 units in 13 states.
