Afton Properties has snapped up Sunset Ridge Apartments, an 800-unit, mixed-income community in the Los Angeles area of Lancaster, Calif. The property traded for $132 million, according to a report by The Real Deal. Berkadia secured $108.7 million in Freddie Mac financing for the acquisition.

Located at 43436 16th St. W., the property was built in four separate phases of 200 units each between 1986 and 1988. The community offers one-, two- and three-bedroom units along with a laundry facility, fitness center and swimming pool.

The asset was previously owned by Provident Resources Group, which bought it from Municipal Capital Appreciation Partners in 2002 for $47.8 million, according to Yardi Matrix. For the most recent sale, Freddie Mac purchased the 15-year, fixed-rate loan with eight years of interest-only payments through its Targeted Affordable Housing program.

A Berkadia team of Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg, Associate Director Matthew Robbins and Senior Analyst Abigail Beauchamp secured the loan. Singberg noted that the former owner made value-add improvements to the property, which caters to renters in the affordable and market-rate segment.
