Northmarq completes $11 million sale of a 194-unit portfolio outside Kansas City Metro

St. Joseph Portfolio

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI (February 20, 2023) — Jeff Lamott and Gabe Tovar of Northmarq’s Kansas City-based investment sales office arranged the $11 million sale of a 194-unit St. Joseph portfolio near Kansas City. Northmarq exclusively represented the seller, Worcester Investments, in the transaction. 

“This portfolio offered the rare opportunity to acquire both garden-style and urban loft communities that have not received recent systematic updated interiors to capture full market rents. The city of St. Joseph is the third largest exporter in the state of Missouri and is a thriving tertiary market for investing in stable workforce housing communities,” said Lamott. 

Located only 30 minutes from the Kansas City Metro, St. Joseph is a manufacturing hub with a thriving workforce. The portfolio offers both garden-style and urban loft communities that provide immediate access to the city’s major throughfare, regional retail centers, and top regional employers for residents.
