Rincon Partners, LLC ("Rincon"), a full-service real estate investment and management firm headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, is pleased to highlight a solid start to 2021 with over $128 million in multifamily real estate acquisitions and property sales. This high volume of activity underscores the resiliency and attractiveness of the industry’s apartment sector for both buyers and sellers.
“Even though the economy has not fully recovered from the pandemic, our team of professionals at Rincon continues to find timely exit strategies and acquisition opportunities within the multifamily asset class,” said Kirk McAllaster, Rincon Partners President. “We are finding equal interest in our primary Southwest and Southeast U.S. markets confirming that growth in multifamily is not isolated to a single geographic region.”
Rincon’s recent transactions reflect how a variety of different apartment communities are attracting investor interest. For example:
Village Greens of Queen Creek is a 50-unit, "built-for-rent" Class A, multi-family community constructed in 2020 and located in Queen Creek, AZ. The Property was acquired on March 23, 2021 for $15.3 million and consists of townhome-style units with private backyards, 9-foot plus ceiling heights, and high-end finishes such as quartz countertops, kitchen islands, and in-unit washers and dryers.
