Sperry Van Ness recently arranged the off-market sale of Desert Mirage I, a 258-unit luxury apartment community in Gilbert, Ariz.
The value of the transaction was approximately $34.4 million.
Seattle-based S-J Management purchased the property, which is located at 1333 W. Guadalupe Road, from Tempe, Ariz.-based Scott Communities.
The buyer, an apartment investor group that has purchased more than 4,000 units in the Phoenix area, beat out a prospective buyer interested in converting the property into condos, according to a press statement.
Originally built in 1998, the 21-building property situated on 17 acres of land was 95 percent occupied at the time of sale. It features six studio units, 72 one-bedroom/one-bathroom units, 144 two-bedroom/two-bathroom units and 36 three-bedroom/two-bathroom units. The luxury, gated apartment community includes a clubhouse, fitness center, business office, two community pools, two spas, various courtyards, large floor plans, in-room security, ample parking and garages for its tenants.
