“The greatest challenge? Great asset, good market, the upsides of the deal, there were a lot of positives,” HFF senior managing director Jose Cruz told MHN“But per unit the price was on the higher sideSo we had to convince everyone that there was future value there, and it was a justifiable number and there would be rent growth in the future.”

The property is situated on just more than 11.25 acres in Cherry Hill, an affluent Philadelphia suburb with an average household income of $117,000.

“The property’s currency occupancy of more than 97 percent combined with its access to retail and superior amenities made it a highly desirable investment for several public and private entities,” Cruz said.
Robust buyer interest
Added Thomson: “We were very encouraged by the activity on this transactionDespite the smaller property size of 170 units, the market showed a strong interest from both institutional and private groupsBy leveraging our national platform, we procured 27 toursUltimately, the deal was awarded to Friedkin Realty, a San Francisco-based firm and first-time buyer in the New Jersey and Philadelphia MSAWe always take pride in moving new capital to the region, as was the case on this transaction.”
