Lender Owned Properties Dominate Apartment Sales

Posted on Wed, Jun 08, 2011

The Tucson Apartment Investment market is beginning to wake up. Lender owned properties (REO properties), short sales, and sales through receivership are hitting the Tucson market in addition to a few non-distressed properties. PICOR is currently marketing two short sale properties, two REO properties, a sale through receivership, as well as two non-distressed investor owned properties. Additionally there are properties being offered by FNMA, CMBS special servicers, regional banks, and other lender agents who have taken control of properties to protect their position.

Investors have healthy appetites for lender owned properties

Gateway and primary markets as well as secondary markets such as Phoenix and Denver are seeing strong CAP rate compression and a significant uptick in transaction volume. This is bringing investor interest to tertiary markets such as Tucson, as investors seek higher returns than those available in the primary markets.  Look for transaction volume to pick up in the second half of 2011 and into 2012 as the rental fundamentals improve and capital continues to seek higher returns in sunbelt markets such as Tucson and Southern Arizona.
