Villa Hermosa Apartments is situated at 14717 S. Pioneer Blvd., along Interstate 605 and close to Interstate 5 and State Route 91. Long Beach is less than seven miles away. Built in 1963, the two-story property comprises four buildings and sits on a 2.5-acre site, featuring one- and two-bedroom apartments averaging 777 square feet. Community amenities include:

  • controlled access

The buyer plans to upgrade the interior units and exterior communal areas to enhance value and increase revenue, according to Matthew Kipp, vice president investments at Marcus & Millichap.

“The sale is the largest non-institutional multifamily transaction in Norwalk this year,” said Tyler Leeson, senior managing director investments at Marcus & Millichap, in prepared remarks. “It is also the year’s largest private client sale to have taken place along the 605 corridor in Los Angeles County from Long Beach to Whittier.”
