Marcus & Millichap, a leading commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, has announced the sale of Lexington Court, a 42-unit apartment property located in Tampa, FL, according to Chris Travis, sales manager of the firm’s Tampa office. The asset sold for $2,730,000.

Luis Baez, CCIM, Miles Tombrink, Casey Babb, CCIM and Shawn Rupp, investment specialists in Marcus & Millichap’s Tampa office, had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a private investor.  The buyer, a private investor, was also secured and represented by Luis Baez, CCIM, Miles Tombrink, Casey Babb, CCIM and Shawn Rupp.

“Lexington Court provided investors an opportunity to obtain a stabilized asset in a class C submarket with a cash-on-cash return of over 12 percent on day one,” said Tombrink. “Pairing this with our industry leading marketing capabilities, we were able to obtain six written offers within 45 days of marketing the property, before coming to terms with an out of area investor at 96.3 percent of list price,” added Baez.
