Institutional Property Advisors Brokers $110 Million Multifamily Sale in Oceanside

OCEANSIDE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), announced the sale of Capella at Rancho del Oro, a 284-unit multifamily asset in Oceanside, California. The property traded for $110 million, which equates to $387,324 per unit.

“The total sales price is the highest on record for an apartment transaction in Oceanside,” said Christopher J. Zorbas, IPA executive managing director investments. “This unique property was constructed in 2001 and due to limited opportunities along the 78 corridor, investors have adjusted their underwriting criteria to be more competitive as most of the market is 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s garden walk-ups.”

Zorbas, Tyler Martin, vice president, and Alexander Garcia, Jr., IPA executive managing director investments represented the seller, FPA Multifamily, and procured the buyer, Property West Residential, a local family office with over 4,000 units under ownership and management. “This was a rare 2001-built offering located in the Rancho Del Oro section of Oceanside, accessible to the beach, major employment hubs, and retail destinations,” added Martin.

Near Downtown Oceanside and within proximity of Oceanside Harbor, this particular location is well positioned between the coast and adjacent to two of the main job nodes in North San Diego County being Palomar Airport District and Ocean Ranch. Employers such as Rancho Del Oro Technology Park, Palomar Airport District, and Ocean Ranch Corporate Center are conveniently accessible. Camp Pendleton is the largest employer in the area and employs thousands on the civilian side as well as active duty service people. MiraCosta College, Palomar College and California State University, San Marcos are also close by. Shopping at Plaza Del Oro, Town Center North, and Old Grove Marketplace is just minutes away.

The sale marks the team’s second large multifamily closing in Oceanside this quarter. On July 19, 2021, Zorbas, Garcia, and Martin completed the sale of The Dylan, a 208-unit apartment complex on Los Arbolitos Boulevard in Oceanside for $74.1 million, or $356,250 per unit.
