The 16-building community is located at 727 Anne Street in Griffin, Georgia, outside of Atlanta

Affordable Housing Investment Brokerage Inc. (AHIB) recently advised on the $8,450,000 sale of Heritage Apartments, a 120-unit apartment community operating with a project-based Section 8 contract (HAP Contract).

AHIB’s Senior Vice President Bill Brading and Managing Director Kyle Shoemaker marketed the deal and represented the seller, a private developer.

“Heritage Apartments currently has 94% HAP coverage and 98% occupancy, which made it appealing for affordable housing investors,” said Brading. “We had multiple competitive offers and achieved a sale above the target price.”

Spread across seven acres, Heritage Apartments features a mix of two-bedroom/one-bathroom and three-bedroom/two-bathroom units. Amenities include a playground and close proximity to retail and grocery.

Heritage Apartments has seen an 11.7% increase in Average Median Income (AMI) growth rate in the last year. The current rent levels are also below both HUD’s Fair Market Rents and market rate, providing opportunity for the new owner.

“We are proud to have closed this deal within 132 days,” said Shoemaker. “HAP deals typically take between 6-8 months to close, and our expertise in this type of real estate investment and network got the deal done.”
