A student housing community, located two blocks south of the University California, Berkeley campus has sold for $10,665,000.

Berkeley-based Valiance Capital acquired the 72-bed community at 2425 Prospect Street from a local private investor. Valiance Capital specializes and focuses on the acquisition of opportunistic, value-add multifamily and student housing properties. The new owner plans to significantly renovate the site and provide various new amenities to an increased number of student residents at the property.

The existing four-story property includes approximately 20,000 square feet with a significant portion of that coming in the form of common area space. Valiance Capital is expected to take full advantage of the ample layouts and high ceilings to offer a lifestyle that student residents will enjoy. The property is less than two blocks from California Memorial Stadium, adjacent to the University of California, Berkeley Clark Kerr Campus and is at the center of fraternity and sorority housing.

Brandon Geraldo and Ryan Wagner, who lead the Bay Area Multifamily Team at Colliers International, represented the seller and buyer.

In the second quarter of 2019, the Bay Area Multifamily team of Colliers International has sold or is under contract on over $175M in multifamily properties throughout the greater Bay Area, representing approximately 30% market share in assets valued between ten and thirty million dollars.
