Bill Hahn, Trevor Koskovich, and Jesse Hudson negotiated the sale and procured the buyer of the 117-unit Avalon apartments, located at 3851 N. 28th Street in Phoenix, Arizona for $13.7 million.

Pathfinder Partners Acquisitions, LLC, an entity formed by Pathfinder Partners out of San Diego, California was the buyer. Pathfinder is a value investor applying an opportunistic and value-add approach to real estate investments which it can transform through additional capital infusions, institutional level management and property re-positioning.

Phoenix Avalon LLC, an entity formed by 3rd Ave Investments out of Phoenix, Arizona, was the seller. 3rd Ave Investments has acquired 1,873 apartments with an aggregate market value of more than $200 million. They target poorly managed, undervalued and off-market investments, where opportunities exist to create value with an active management approach.

“The buyer plans on completing the high-end interior upgrade program already initiated by the seller, totaling over $20,000 per unit in renovation costs,” says Hahn. “They hired highly acclaimed Alliance Residential to manage their property and drive up market rents in the gentrifying Arcadia Lite submarket.”

Avalon consists of seven buildings with 96,750 square feet of space situated on 3.48 acres. The community is a blend of 69% 1-bedroom units and 31% 2-bedroom units.
