Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap, announces the exclusive opportunity to acquire Villas at Deer Park, a 172-unit apartment community in Lutz, Florida. The price is open bid.

“This asset will provide a new owner with the opportunity to add value through the capture of significant in-place loss-to-lease revenue,” says Frank Carriera, senior director, IPA.
