Colliers International Completes $4 Million Multifamily Sale in Marina Del Rey, CA

MARINA DEL REY, CA.  - Colliers International, the second largest global real estate services organization, has completed the investment sale of a 6,316-square-foot apartment building located at 15 Outrigger Street (top left photo), Marina Del Rey, Calif. The transaction sold for $4 million.

 Kitty Wallace (middle right photo), executive vice president, based in Colliers International’s West Los Angeles office, represented both the Buyer, a Los Angeles-based real estate investment firm, and the Seller, private investors based in Hawaii.

 The Outrigger Apartments is located on the prestigious Marina Peninsula, just steps from the sand and the canals. The four-story asset was built in 1972 and was renovated in 1982. The property’s spacious floor plans and parking ratio of 2.55 spaces per unit creates the opportunity for a condominium conversion further down the road.

  “Almost immediately, we saw tremendous interest in the Outrigger Apartments. As expected the property scored well with investors due to its coastal location, impeccable condition, and 100% occupancy rate,” said Wallace.  “There was an aggressive bidding war over the asset and it finally sold at list price with $100,000 hard money up front to a 1031 exchange Buyer.”

 “The fact that the property sold for $444,444 per unit and a 3.84 CAP Rate is an excellent indicator that class-A markets of the city continue to draw top market values regardless of the recession. There is always demand for high-end properties in good neighborhoods,” added Wallace.

Additionally, the property has an excellent unit mix with one one-bed, one-bath unit, two one-bed, one-bath, plus a loft and patio units, four two-bed, two-bath units, and two two-bed, plus a loft and patio units.

The units are all spacious, have walk-in closets, balconies, and fireplaces in every bedroom and living room. Most units have double-paned windows and three have washer/dryer hook-ups. Common area amenities include 23 parking spaces, an elevator, a laundry room, and controlled access entry.
