“Originally constructed in 1970 and impeccably maintained by previous ownership, Casa Monterrey Apartment Homes has undergone over $4.2 million in upgrades since 2007, and yet the opportunity remains to elevate the standard of rental living via targeted interior and community enhancements,” said Joseph Berkson, Marcus & Millichap first vice president investments.

“The rare opportunity to acquire an institutionally sized multifamily asset in coastal Orange County with a value-add component, allowed us to generate significant interest in the offering from a wide range of investor profiles,” added Stewart Weston, IPA executive director.

Berkson and Weston, along with Christopher Zorbas, IPA senior director, Alexander Garcia, Jr., IPA senior director, David Sperling, IPA director, and John Montakab, IPA associate director, represented the seller, and procured the buyer, Saratoga Capital Inc.
