TampaMarcus & Millichap recently arranged the sale of Belara Lakes, a 324-unit apartment community located in Tampa.

Federal Capital Partners represented the buyer, while Cagan Management Group represented the seller in the $22.43 million transaction. The sale price equated to $69,228 per unit, or $67.45 per square foot. Vice Presidents of Investments Nicholas Meoli and Michael Donaldson, both located in Marcus & Millichap’s Tampa office, represented the seller and procured the buyer.

“We generated a significant amount of national and international investor interest by utilizing our market expertise and leveraging Marcus & Millichap’s collaborative platform,” said Meoli. “Additionally, our ability to underwrite a comprehensive value-add financial model, including future capital expenditures, allowed investors to see the asset’s true value in today’s marketplace.”

“Our extensive marketing campaign ultimately resulted with a very well-qualified buyer assuming an agency loan at 62 percent loan-to-value,” added Donaldson. Federal Capital Partners assumed the CMBS $14 million loan, which was placed in 2014 with a 10-year maturity date ending in 2024.
