MESA, AZ-The 44-unit Mesa Mountainview has sold to a California investor for $2.2 million, closing $200,000 below the listing price. The asset’s appeal was a 100% occupancy and lack of maintenance issues.

Eva Lau of Los Angeles emerged the winning bidder for the 830 N. Alma School Rd. property, obtaining acquisition financing at 75% of the purchase price and filling in the balance with 1031 Exchange funds.
