WhiteHaven Capital has acquired Strayhorse Arrowhead Ranch, a 136-unit property in Glendale, Ariz., for $45 million from Shelter Asset Management. Institutional Property Advisors represented the seller and secured the buyer. According to Maricopa County records, Bridge Investment Group provided a $38.8 million acquisition loan.

The buyer plans to renovate the community and rename it Haven at Arrowhead, according to a statement posted by the firm on social media. WhiteHaven intends to invest $5 million in upgrading community amenities as well as unit interiors.

The property last traded in 2020, when it commanded $31.2 million in a transaction also brokered by IPA.

The brokerage team handling the latest sale included Executive Managing Directors Steve Gebing and Cliff David.  In June, the two, together with Hamid Panahi, first vice president of investments, brokered a $54 million sale in Tucson, Ariz.

The deal marks WhiteHaven’s second acquisition of 2021 in metro Phoenix, after its purchase of the 104-unit Haven on Thomas in February. According to a recent Yardi Matrix metro report, transactions had already surpassed $2.3 billion in the first four months of 2021, supported by some of the country’s strongest real estate fundamentals.
