7-Units | Just Closed in Westwood
We just closed this 7-unit multifamily property in the Westwood area situated south of Wilshire and just east of Westwood Boulevard. This was a property that had been in the family of the Seller for over 50 years. The Seller, like many other small operators in California, was fatigued by the heightened regulatory environment that accompanies apartment ownership in Los Angeles nowadays. The Purchaser was a local student housing operator who was in the midst of a 1031 exchange.
The property traded at sub 4% cap rate and roughly 16x rents. All things In the long run, owning apartments in West LA is generally one of the safer real estate investments out there. The location with respect to transit (and the ocean) are optimal. While the yields upon acquisition may be lower than elsewhere in the market, when all is said and done the rental demand is steady, the rents grow over time, and it’s still ‘The Westside.’
