Lee & Associates Transacts Sale of 15-Unit Apartment Building for $2,450,000


Sale price is among the highest paid per square foot in NoHo submarket since 2007

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA – May 25, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) –A 15-unit multifamily asset here was sold for $2,450,000, among the highest prices paid on a per square foot and on a gross rent multiplier basis in the North Hollywood submarket since 2007, according to Jeff McGuire, Senior Vice President, Special Assets and a Principal of Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura, Inc, who represented the buyer and the seller in the transaction.

The property, at 5253-59 Cartwright Ave., attracted six bidders and sold in just five months to a local apartment building investor.

“This sale reflects not only the continuing interest in multifamily properties but also the growing expectation that rental rates will rise over the next two-to-three years,” said McGuire. “Why else would an asset with modest upside in current rental rates command nearly $175 per square foot?”

The property, built in 1987, features two-bedroom, two-bath and three-bedroom, two-bath units with secured access and parking. Units feature central air conditioning, balconies and dishwashers. It is located in the NoHo Arts District within minutes of the major entertainment studios and the Metro Red Line with access to Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles.
