Project Summary
Explore this project
Value-add acquisition of a 224-unit apartment community in Phoenix, AZ alongside a Phoenix-focused sponsor with over 1,000 units in the market.

SB Real Estate Partners has budgeted approximately $1.4 million of exterior and common area capex, along with $2.0 million of interior unit renovation capex in order to collectively drive the value-add execution and compete with surrounding properties within immediate proximity.


SB Real Estate Partners has a strong presence in the submarket with an overall focus on Class B workforce multifamily throughout Phoenix (over 1,000 units under ownership). 



Casa Anita is located within the thriving West Valley submarket of Phoenix, which has become the industrial, storage, and logistics hub of the city. This pocket of Phoenix is projected to add 23,000 more households and 31,000 workers through 2024, which would represent 22% of the MSA's overall job growth through that time period (Source: Alteryx and Costar).

SB Real Estate Partners has budgeted $1,971,200 ($8,800 per unit) for interior unit renovations and $1,394,344 for exterior and common area improvements.
The exit strategy is to sell the Property in four years at an expected cap rate of 5.50%.

Property Details

SB Real Estate Partners (“SBREP”) is currently under contract to purchase Casa Anita Apartments for $35.3 million and is underwriting to investor level returns of 15.8% IRR / 1.7x equity multiple over a four-year hold, with average cash-on-cash returns of 5.9%. The seller is an out-of-state family that has owned the property for almost twenty years and has maintained a conservative leasing strategy. The unit mix consists primarily of 2x2 floor plans averaging 980 SF. SBREP currently owns Cordova Apartments, which is located one mile east of Casa Anita, and is leasing smaller 2x2 floor plans of equivalent condition/finishes at over $1,150/unit (more than $300 above Casa Anita).  As a result, there is an opportunity to substantially renovate, rebrand, and reposition the property in order to bring rents closer to surrounding comparable properties.

Market Overview

Per CoStar, the Phoenix multifamily market has proved to be resilient since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the pandemic, fundamentals were solid and supported by some of the nation’s strongest employment and household growth. Relatively low levels of single-family homebuilding and healthy demand have continued to keep vacancies tight. Employment has started to rise again following the reopening of the economy in mid-May. Historically, the Phoenix MSA has attracted people in search of affordable living and job opportunities. This trend is expected to accelerate due to work from home arrangements that will lure renters from pricey West Coast markets.

Despite robust population growth over the past several years, single-family development has not kept pace and pricing has soared. Multifamily developers have worked to make up for the lack of residential construction. Demand for apartments has withstood a wave of new supply over the past two years and has kept vacancies historically low. Tight vacancies have contributed to ample rent growth that has consistently ranked among the best in the nation over the past two years.

Submarket Overview

Per CoStar, the West Valley submarket has been among one of the most resilient locations within the Phoenix MSA since the onset of the pandemic. The West Valley area has weathered the storm relatively better than other areas in Phoenix due to its affordable rents, which are about 15% below the market average. Because of steady apartment demand throughout the pandemic, daily asking rent levels in the West Valley recovered much faster than other areas in Phoenix post-pandemic. Before the pandemic, developers were attempting to meet robust demand in the area, which was previously underserved.  From 2011-2017, apartment inventory had not grown, despite strong population growth during that period. Overall, the demand drivers that worked in favor of the submarket in the past are expected to continue to play out in the market once the effects of the virus fade.

The West Valley has achieved one of the best rent recoveries in the Phoenix market since the onset of the pandemic. By May, rents began to rise again, and they are now well above the March peak. The West Valley is one of the most affordable submarkets in Phoenix. Asking rents average approximately $1,050/month, which is about 15% below the market average. However, the submarket has also achieved the most significant rent gains in past quarters. Modest residential construction, coupled with a lack of affordable available inventory in the market, had granted property managers leverage to increase rents even in the pandemic environment.
