Monarch Investment & Management Group has acquired the 176-unit Avalon at Carlsbad from a private investor. Eddy County public records show that Berkadia originated a $24.5 million Fannie Mae loan for the acquisition of the asset in Carlsbad, N.M.

Located at 1907 San Jose Blvd., the asset is a mile from a Walmart Supercenter and roughly 5 miles from Airport Cavern City Air Terminal, with more than 33,500 people with a median income of almost $60,000 residing within a five-mile radius. Situated within the Permian Basin, the community profits from the high-income sectors such as crude oil and gas, healthcare and tourism and entertainment, according to Marcus & Millichap Associate John McGregor.       

The gated community consists of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with an average floorplan size of 876 square feet in 15 buildings completed between 2012 and 2015. Common-area amenities include a fitness center, media room, pool and volleyball court.

Senior Associate Matt Reeves is the company’s broker of record in New Mexico. The same team recently facilitated a similar transaction with the disposition of the 240-unit Homestead in Hobbs, N.M.
