Institutional Property Advisors, a division of Marcus & Millichap, announced the sale and Silverado Apartment Homes, a 492-unit multifamily property in Murrieta, California. The property sold for $146.5 million, which equates to $297,764 per unit.

“Silverado presented a unique opportunity to acquire a newer vintage Inland Empire asset with substantial upside in a burgeoning submarket with strong fundamentals,” said Kevin Green, IPA executive managing director investments. “Our controlled process was met with a positive response and yielded a highly competitive sales environment. The opportunity was bolstered by assumable financing, approximately 300 basis points below today’s rates. The acquisition gives the buyer a sizeable footprint in a strong market.” Green and IPA’s Joseph Grabiec and Gregory Harris represented the seller, Realty Center Management, Inc., and procured the buyer, Bell Partners.

“Highlighting the above-average demographics in this submarket drew additional activity in an area lesser known by the broader investment market,” said Grabiec. “Average annual household income in the area surrounding Silverado is $138,000, which is on par with Orange County and over 11% higher than nearby Rancho Cucamonga and Corona. Rents are projected to grow in Murrieta by 10.3% over the next 12 months. Average year-over-year annual rent growth over the next five years is projected to be 6.1%.”

Silverado Apartment Homes has two swimming pools and spas, covered and garage parking, a central courtyard, a clubhouse with an entertainment lounge and a demonstration kitchen. The apartments have hardwood floors, walk-in closets, and washers and dryers. The average unit size is 948 square feet.
