WALNUT CREEK, Calif., May 26, 2020 – Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), announces the sale of three boutique, value-add apartment properties totaling 150 unitsin Walnut Creek, California. The portfolio sold for a combined sales price of $55.6 million, representing an average price of approximately $371,000 per unit. The properties included are The Pines, 120 units; City View, 20 units; and 1465 Mt. Pisgah, 10 units.
IPA’s Stanford Jones, Philip Saglimbeni, Salvatore Saglimbeni and Alex Tartaglia, along with Marcus & Millichap’s Carlos Azucena handled the brokerage assignment on behalf of the seller. The Pines and City View were acquired by Raintree Partners. A private investor purchased 1465 Mt. Pisgah.
“Walnut Creek represents one of the most highly sought-after cities in the Bay Area, given its desirable mix of lifestyle amenities including a vibrant downtown district, well-regarded schools, transit-orientation, and proximity to major employment centers,” said Philip Saglimbeni, IPA senior director. “Despite boasting an average household income of over $140,000, city residents face high barriers to home ownership, creating favorable conditions for apartment owners.”
All three properties are located within walking distance of Downtown Walnut Creek, one of the premier shopping and dining destinations in the East Bay. With over 4.9 million square feet of office space, the city’s downtown district is home to hundreds of professional services, technology, and healthcare companies. The Walnut Creek Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, also located downtown, provides convenient commutes to Oakland and San Francisco. Nearby Interstate 680 provides convenient access to major employers located in the Tri-Valley area.
