Livingston, N.J. – At the close-of-summer mark, Gebroe-Hammer Associates is reporting total multifamily sales of $103.58+M for apartment properties throughout Northern and Southern New Jersey, including the Philadelphia corridor. Combined, the deals involved 740 units during the 13-week period between June 1st and early September.
In keeping with the enduring trend where investors focus on urban transit-village and major-metro suburban markets, Gebroe-Hammer’s market specialists exclusively represented the sellers and/or procured the buyers in the 10 transactions.
Sales highlights include the trade of a 126-unit, garden-apartment community with generational ownership in Union County, N.J., as well as three separate transactions across Passaic County involving a total of 53 units sold for $9.8M.
“Commercial real estate as a whole is an industry in transition, characterized by a post-pandemic market correction and extremely limited credit availabilities associated with historic interest-rate hikes over the course of the past 18+ months,” said Ken Uranowitz, president of Gebroe-Hammer.
“While multifamily is not immune to these fundamental shifts, there is less of an impact on current or even long-term asset performance and value appreciation as compared to other asset categories such as office and retail,” he said. “This, along with an inherent function as shelter, gives multifamily its staying power as the most-favorable commercial real estate investment in any given economic cycle.”
