Commercial Executive Magazine features NorthMarq Multifamily $17 Million Sale as Deal of the Week

Commercial Executive Magazine interviewed Bill Hahn and Trevor Koskovich of NorthMarq Multifamily on the recent sale of Urban 188 Apartments. The 188-unit multifamily property, located at 1601 West Camelback Road in Phoenix, Arizona, sold this month for $17 million. The NorthMarq Multifamily team of Bill Hahn, Trevor Koskovich and Jesse Hudson represented both the seller and the buyer in this transaction.

Q: Location was a major component in this deal. What other factors played into the success of this transaction?

A: The fact that the property had just undergone a complete renovation, with all new HVAC units, kitchen appliances and flooring, among other systems. Also, easy light rail access encourages a young, upwardly-mobile tenant base.

Q: Urban 188 was a turn-key asset, does this type of property appeal to most of your investors?

A: Actually, no. Most buyers active today are looking for properties where they can add value by making physical improvements or management improvements, thereby increasing revenue. This particular buyer purchased Urban 188 because he believed in the organic rent growth that would come from the location and other factors mentioned in #1 above.

Hudson also noted that the property’s proximity to the light rail will likely improve property values as it encourages redevelopment and gentrification of the surrounding areas.

Urban 188 apartments, built in 1970, comprises 188-units situated on 22.30 acres. The community is a blend of 57 percent studios units, 42 percent one-bedroom, units and 1 percent two-bedroom units. The property, located on the south side Camelback Road east of 17th Avenue, is near manufacturing and warehousing employment along Interstate 17. Urban 188 is also located along the Metro light rail line with a station located just two blocks west at the intersection of 19th Avenue and Camelback Road, providing easy access to downtown Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa.  The immediate neighborhood surrounding Urban 188 comprises a mixture of single-family homes, multifamily projects, and commercial developments.

Urban 1601 Property LLC, of Phoenix, Arizona, was the buyer. 1601 W. Camelback Rd. LLC, of Las Vegas, Nevada, was the seller.

Hahn, Koskovich recognized as Broker Team of the Month in Commercial Executive Magazine

NorthMarq Multiifamily’s Bill Hahn and Trevor Koskovich were recently recognized as Broker Team of the Month in the July/August issue of Commercial Executive Magazine. The team’s submission was prepared and presented by Willmeng Construction. Partners since 2007, multifamily professionals Bill Hahn and Trevor Koskovich have been riding the highs and lows of the Valley’s commercial real estate market for more than a decade. “I remember meeting Trevor for the first time over a lunch in Old Town Scottsdale,” Hahn recalls. “We hit it off and we had a plan.”

Starting Points

Early in 2018, Hahn and Koskovich moved their entire 10-team member operation from Colliers to NorthMarq Capital. The firm is an industry leader in commercial real estate finance with annual production volume of $13 billion and a loan-servicing portfolio of $52 billion on behalf of more than 50 institutional investors and the government-sponsored entities (GSE’s). “We realized this would be a good alliance,” says Koskovich, President of newly created NorthMarq Multifamily Investment Sales group. “We each had what the other wanted.”

Background

Hahn, Executive Vice President of NorthMarq Multifamily Investment Sales, and Koskovich, came to the commercial real estate industry on vastly different paths. “I entered the business with Marcus & Millichap in the early 1980s,” says Hahn. Koskovich, on the other hand, entered the arena with an entrepreneurial energy, having sold two companies he started. “I believed commercial real estate would be a great industry for me,” he says. “I interviewed every firm in town to fi nd out which would be the best fit.” Sperry Van Ness proved the right launching pad for Koskovich. “I knew that working with Bill was ultimately going to offer me the most opportunity and room to grow,” he says. At 27, Koskovich had little idea of the obstacles looming on the horizon. “The market was ready to fall off a cliff. I recall the best advice I gave him,” says Hahn. “He told me, stop talking to owners of commercial real estate and start talking with the lenders,” says Koskovich.

Phoenix Rising: James DuMars and Jesse Hudson featured in Western Real Estate Business

These days, it is more than just the temps that are white hot in Phoenix. Competition among both buyers and lenders is heating up in the Phoenix apartment market.

Transaction volume is down from levels set in 2016, but demand is stronger than ever with a record high level of buyers and capital in the market. The common complaint is that there are more buyers than there are for-sale properties.

It is not unusual to have eight to 12 qualified bidders on a deal – twice the number that existed a few years ago. NorthMarq recently brokered a 200-unit, Class C, value-add sale in Phoenix that drew 12 offers with five going into a best and final. At the end, there were four very credit-worthy bidders who all had offers in within $100,000. The financing available for the acquisition was a 10-year fixed rate of 4.40 percent, 75 percent LTV and an initial five-year, interest only.

The main driver behind this appetite for apartments is that buyers see a good growth story. Phoenix has come a long way since its housing bubble burst more than a decade ago. The metro is enjoying strong employment and job growth with more than 50,000 plus jobs being created and 80,000-plus new residents moving to the area annually.

Read why the Phoenix market will remain incredibly competitive for both lenders and investors here.
