NAI Capital Apartment Sale Sets Price per Square Foot High in the Westside’s Palms Area


Los Angeles, CA Wednesday, December 07, 2016 – Vice President Kevin Kawaoka with NAI Capital completed the sale of a 9-unit apartment complex located at 3321 Keystone Ave, Los Angeles, Calif. Kawaoka, obtained the exclusive listing and represented the seller in the transaction. The seller, Almanza Trust, sold to N&G Investments for $3,946,000 or $438,000 per unit. The sale price per square foot at $503 set a new record high on a price per square foot basis for non-rent controlled apartment buildings in the Westside’s Palms community of Los Angeles.                          

The Keystone Manor is a two story 7,850 square foot project built in 1988, with a unit mix consisting of both one and two bedroom apartment homes. The property is situated in a prime Palms area located just South of Rose and East of Overland Avenue. At the time of the sale the building was 100% occupied. The vacancy in Palms for apartment units of similar size is extremely low due to rental market demand, which has contributed to escalating rents and outstanding sales prices. 

Kawaoka said, “The seller had this property in their portfolio over 10 years. Current market conditions made it the perfect time to sell and our thoughtful and effective marketing plan for this property produced multiple offers over asking price. We were able secure a buyer $100,000 above asking price, negotiate favourable terms and maximize the value for the Almanza Trust.  Palms is one of the most desirable cities due to its proximity to the metro rail, Downtown Culver City and Silicon Beach. Rental units will remain in demand there. The non-rent controlled property offers a tremendous long term hold potential for the new owner.”
