Chandler, Ariz.—Bascom Arizona Ventures has completed its acquisition of a 352-unit asset in Chandler, Ariz., known as The Fairways. The $35.2 million transaction was arranged by Marcus & Millichap on behalf of the seller, Situs Holdings. The Fairways is located on the San Marcos Golf Resort, about a half hour drive from downtown Phoenix. Built in two phases in 1986 and 1996, the property is only a mile from downtown Chandler. Apartment units average 965 square feet in size.
“Developed in two phases by two distinctly different developers, The Fairways features some of the most unique property characteristics and architectural advantages found within the Greater Phoenix multifamily market, particularly among assets built during the 1980s and 1990s,” says Cliff David, vice president investments at Marcus & Millichap.

Lee & Associates closes $1.4M sale
Glendale, Calif.—Lee & Associates has closed the $1.4 million sale of an eight-unit property located at 238 N. Verdugo Road in Glendale, Calif. The buyer and seller were both private investors, and the seller had owned the property for more than 10 years. The buyer is looking to hold the property—which was fully leased at closing—for a long term investment.
“This sale represents an uptick in multifamily investments activities,” says Widjaja Chen, senior vice president at Lee & Associates. “Buyers are taking the low interest rate opportunities to acquire good located assets as a hedge against other types of investments. This sale provided a ‘win-win’ situation for the buyer and seller who were both able to achieve their investment goal through this transaction.”
