This Week's LA Deal Sheet
Charles Dunn Co recently brokered the sale of a 36-unit apartment building in Winnetka for $186,111/unit. Bisnow caught up with Charles Dunn Co managing director Barry Rothstein to find out more.
Barry says the seller, a private, local investor, had owned the property for about 11 years and has a history of buying apartment buildings.
7255 Winnetka was the last apartment building the seller owned.
It made sense to sell it now because of the current seller’s market and he was able to "reach his desired purchase price, enter into a credit-tenant exchange and double his cash flow," according to Barry.
The 33-year-old property is two stories and includes a swimming pool, solar energy systems and large units.
Barry repped the seller and buyer in the off-market deal.
He says the buyer was attracted to the location and liked that the property was not subject to rent control and offered large units with patios and spacious balconies.
The buyer plans to remodel the units, increase rents and raise the overall value of the property, Barry says.
The property has three mixed‐use properties, consisting of office over retail in downtown Manhattan Beach near the pier.
The office space has floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the ocean.
One of the buildings was built as recently as last year.
PSRS loan officer Ted Willis arranged the financing with one of PSRS’s correspondent life companies.
