“The Westcott Apartments is an exceptionally well-located property on the outskirts of Tallahassee offering residents easy access to the metro’s major employers and quality-of-life amenities, including restaurants, golf courses and retail centers ,” said Etchison. “The buyers acquired a premier, low-density suburban community in which 80 percent of the units were in classic or partially renovated condition, providing a rare large-scale value-add opportunity.”
