“By highlighting the opportunity to invest in a market that is in the early stages of benefiting from increasing demand and strong rent growth, we attracted significant interest,” said Kevin Green, IPA executive managing director investments. “After substantial development in the submarket pre-COVID that was met with positive absorption but muted rent growth, the area is starting to hit its stride.” Green and IPA’s Joseph Grabiec and Gregory Harris represented the seller, AvalonBay Communities Inc., and procured the buyer, Prime Residential. “We garnered over 20 offers on the property during the marketing process,” said Grabiec. “This strong interest reflects the confidence investors have in a market that is not only experiencing a robust recovery but also has a bright future.”
