[IMGCAP(1)]NEW YORK CITY-The Schneider family sold its 40,000-sf property at 45-16 44th St. in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Queens for $6.6. The selling price is 13 times the property’s gross rent.

This six-story residential elevator apartment building consists of 46 units. A source close to the deal tells GlobeSt.com that the buyer is a local Manhattan/Queens investor whose name cannot be disclosed at this time.

[IMGCAP(2)]The source notes that after 40 years of owning and maintaining the property and receiving numerous offers, the seller felt that this particularly high offer could not be refused. “The time had come to sell and focus their attention on other real estate endeavors,” the source explains.

“This transaction was completely off market,” notes Michael Kerwin, senior broker at GFI Realty Services Inc., who, along with senior broker Yosef Katz, brokered the sale. “The buyer jumped at the chance to own one of the few available rental properties in this area.” Kerwin adds that the buyer plans to hold on to the property long-term.

“This building is immaculate and located on a quiet residential, tree-lined block in Queens,” Katz notes. “It is within walking distance of the subway and buses that take only 15 minutes to reach midtown Manhattan.”
