AzaleaCourtRoseville, June 14, 2016

Gallelli Real Estate is excited to announce the sale of Azalea Court located at 3821 Marconi Avenue in Sacramento, California. The 4 two-story apartment building complex closed Tuesday, June 14th with 100% occupancy for $8,910,000. Built in 1965 on 4.09 acres, the property has had exterior renovations and upgrades throughout the complex. The new owner, an active buyer in the Sacramento market, was looking to add to his multifamily portfolio. Azalea Court was a unique opportunity within the Marconi Avenue corridor with a majority of its 119 units being 2-bedroom.

“It is a good time to buy B and C class properties. There is a fair amount of inventory available in the market, priced less competitively than the A class properties.” Rod Ballinger, Senior Vice President, Gallelli Real Estate.

“The apartment was well occupied and because of the desired unit mix, the new ownership has the opportunity to create additional revenue through interior renovations,” said Gary Gallelli, Managing Director.

Walmart Central In Folsom Hits The Market At $43 Million

Walmart CentralRoseville, December 2, 2015

Walmart Central in Folsom is officially on the market. The ±139,377-square-foot, 24-Hour Fitness and 99 Cent Only Store anchored retail center is being exclusively listed for $43 million by Gallelli Real Estate. “We anticipate high interest in this property due to the prime location and its immediate value add potential.” Mickey Turpen, Senior Vice President.

Walmart Central is located in one of the dominant retail submarkets in the Sacramento region. The Folsom retail submarket is a market leader in rental rates and has seen vacancy steadily fall 5.0% over the last four years. Retail vacancy in Folsom currently stands at 7.4%. The above-average regional household income, desirable and accessible location and impressive traffic counts make Walmart Central a very attractive value-add investment opportunity for buyers.

Turpen said one reason Walmart Central will be attractive to investors is because it is shadowed-anchored by a Super Walmart. Investor interest in grocery- anchored and or shadow-anchored centers has largely increased as the retail market has strengthened in recent years.


The Best Year For Multifamily Sale Prices Yet


Looking back at the multifamily industry, it is hard to believe that today, multifamily sale prices are higher than they were prior to the recession. Rod Ballinger of Gallelli Real Estate can attest to this as escrow recently closed on Vintage Faire Apartments in Rancho Cordova. The 112-unit apartment complex sold for $8.9 million on November 4th. Gallelli Real Estate represented the owner in this off-market transaction. The apartment complex was built in 1979 and was in dire need of a makeover, closing escrow within 75 days.

“2015 has been one of the best markets in the last 15 years with prices peaking above those prior to the recession. The rental market is very much a landlord’s market with almost no suburban apartments planned. We see continued strength in the multifamily market for the foreseeable future.”
