Located at 155 Sterling Manor Drive, the five-building luxury apartment property offers townhomes and garden-style apartments with spacious floorplans and best-in-class finishes. The community was constructed in 2008 and features 137 renovated units, and the sponsor intends to renovate the remaining 70 units to capture additional rental income. The property amenities include a swimming pool, fitness center, resident lounge, business center, grilling/BBQ area, game room, bicycle storage, private balconies, package lockers, surface parking, and detached garages.

Sterling Manor is located in a thriving submarket that features average annual household income in excess of $100,000 and a strong multifamily occupancy rate of 96.6 percent, according to Claritas. The region is exceptionally strong, with 2,917 apartment units delivered and 3,914 apartment units absorbed during the last 12 months, a vacancy rate of 4.8%, and 12-month asking rent growth of 12.2%.1 Axiometrics projects average annual rent growth of 12.4 percent in the submarket between 2022 and 2023.

Sterling Manor is a luxury multifamily investment opportunity for investor seeking upside in a value-add strategy,” said Whitson Huffman, chief strategy and investment officer. “The property features high-end amenities in a high-income market with strong occupancy and growing demand for quality multifamily living.”
