Common amenities include a swimming pool with resort-style furniture, a standalone leasing office and clubhouse with a resident lounge, a fitness facility with cardio and weight training equipment, and covered parking. Twenty-four units have been upgraded recently with new cabinets and counter tops, as well as wood-style vinyl flooring.

According to MPF Research, 1,629 units in Phoenix were absorbed market-wide in the third quarter of 2015, besting the net new supply of 1,276 units during the same period and taking occupancy up 0.1 percentage points. Year-over-year, demand of 6,210 units outpaced net inventory change (3,688 units), lifting occupancy 0.8 points to a nine-year high of 94.8 percent.

As occupancy tightened, effective rents in the Phoenix market rose 2 percent quarter-over-quarter in the third quarter 2015, noted MPF. That matched the previous quarter’s increase as the largest in nine years. Year-over-year in the third quarter, rent growth grew 7.1 percent, another nine-year high, to come in at an average  of $873 a month.

A Phoenix-based brokerage team made up of Marcus & Millichap’s Cliff David and Trevor Hardy, along with Steve Gebing of IPA, represented the seller of Sora on Rose, Gelt Rose Holdings LLC. Jonathan Bench, a Marcus & Millichap associate in Seattle, represented the buyer, Shoup Rose LLC. Marcus & Millichap regional manager Don Morrow was the firm’s broker of record for the transaction.
