Marcus & Millichap, a leading commercial real estate brokerage firm specializing in investment sales, financing, research and advisory services, announced the sale of Seville Apartments, a 77-unit multifamily investment property in Whittier, California. The property sold for $20.1 million, which equates to $261,039 per unit.
“Known as a great place to raise a family, Whittier has strong demographics, such as a median annual household income of $72,000,” said Tyler Leeson, senior managing director in Marcus & Millichap’s Newport Beach office. “Situated close to schools, retail and transportation, Seville Apartments is well suited to provide the buyer with strong returns and value appreciation over the long term.” Leeson and Matt Kipp, first vice president investments, represented the seller and the buyer, both of whom are private investors.
