Phoenix, Arizona (June 4, 2020) - ABI Multifamily, the leading multifamily brokerage and advisory services firm in the Western U.S., is proud to announce the $4,470,000 / $194,348 per Unit / $255.91 per SF sale of Modern Retro Living, a 23-unit garden-style property in Phoenix.

Built in 1956 and renovated in 2016, Modern Retro Living consists of (22) two-bedroom / one-bathroom units and (1) one-bedroom / one-bathroom unit.

The location also includes easy access to the AZ-51 and a short drive to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Mitchell Drake, Vice President at ABI Multifamily, commented, "After entertaining a number of buying parties who kicked the tire on this property, we ultimately found the right investor who had searched endlessly for a truly turnkey asset that boasted a majority of 2-bedroom units, located in a fringe B to A class location. Modern Retro Living fits this bill seamlessly."

Carson Griesemer, Associate at ABI Multifamily, stated, "Due to COVID-19, widespread skepticism had gripped the multifamily marketplace. Our team remained confident in the deal however and worked hard to find the right buyer, knowing the quality of the product and the opportunity it represented in the market."
