16 Units | Just Closed
We just closed a 16 unit value-add multifamily transaction, sourced off-market, which was located on the border Mid-Wilshire and Wilshire Vista neighborhoods of Los Angeles – two of LA’s well-established yet seemingly fast-growing rental submarkets. The property was located on South Dunsmuir Avenue near San Vicente Boulevard, a quiet tree-lined side street with a mix of single-family residential, multifamily (old and new) as well as small lot sub-divisions.
I like this area for a variety of reasons. It is close to major thoroughfares such as San Vicente Boulevard, Pico, Olympic, Fairfax, La Brea and it is a straight shot into popular parts of town like Beverly Grove and West Hollywood. Additionally, the real estate in this area is as diverse as the residents who populate it. As mentioned above, the properties in the area feature everything from new construction, to 1930s Spanish Duplexes, to charming SFRs and 1960s apartment buildings – the list just goes on.
This particular property, originally constructed in 1947, consisted of all one-bedroom floor plans averaging approximately 800 square feet, situated on an R-3 zoned 17,407 SF lot. The property was held by a family operator for over 30 years who like many other LA owners were seeking to transition to a slightly more hands-off investment out-of-state via a 1031 Exchange due to the heightened regulatory environment locally.
The purchasers were attracted to the value-add potential of the property in addition to its central location and proximity to areas like Beverly Grove, Beverly Hills and West Hollywood. The property was delivered with 2 vacancies which the Purchaser plans to renovate and lease at market rent, along with other improvements to the property. The details of the transaction are below:
