Florida Home, Condo Sales Slow in Early 2019
According to the latest housing data by Florida Realtors, Florida's housing market reported higher median prices and rising inventory during the first quarter of 2019. Rising prices continue to put pressure on many homebuyers despite gains in the inventory of for-sale homes: Closed sales of single-family homes statewide totaled 59,505 in 1Q 2019, down 1.2% from the 1Q 2018 level.
"Continuing a trend that we've been seeing for quite a while, median sales prices for both existing single-family homes and for condo-townhouse properties rose in Florida during the first three months of 2019," said 2019 Florida Realtors President Eric Sain.

Bascom Group Extends Buying Spree Into 2022 With 140 Unit California Multifamily Acquisition

Bascom Group | January 18, 2022

The Bascom Group, LLC ("Bascom") has acquired a two-property, 140-unit multifamily portfolio located in the Northridge neighborhood of the City of Los Angeles. The properties, NMS Northridge and NMS Superior, boast large floorplans consisting of mostly two- and three-bedrooms with each unit receiving a private 2-car garage or two spaces of structured parking. The properties are centrally-located within the San Fernando Valley and sit adjacent to California State University – Northridge ("CSUN"). CSUN has an enrollment of 38,000 students and provides significant resident demand. Bascom purchased the 140-unit property for $52,500,000, or $375,000 per unit. Brightspire Capital (fka Colony Capital) provided the debt financing for the acquisition and was arranged by Mark Strauss and Rob Quarton of Walker Dunlop Capital Markets. Apartment Management Consultants (AMC) will provide property management services. NMS Northridge and NMS Superior represent compelling acquisitions in a high-barrier-to-entry market. Market occupancies have been exceptionally high over the last decade and only a limited amount of new supply is currently under construction. Despite the pandemic-related challenges for many universities and the communities serving them over the past two years, we believe the Northridge submarket will see strong fundamental growth over the next several years driven by limited new housing supply and continued population growth." Bascom Sr. Principal, Chad Sanderson. The properties are located adjacent to California State University – Northridge, a 38,000-student university within California State University system. Although the properties' residents are not all students or university affiliates, the properties' proximity to the university provides consistent demand from a highly educated resident base of students, faculty, and other university affiliates and non-affiliates. Bascom's Senior Vice President of Operations. The properties are just a short walk across the street from the CSUN student recreation center, which will be an incredible complement to our planned amenity upgrades on the properties. Other property upgrades will include unit interior renovations and a rebrand to appeal to a younger, tech-savvy resident base." Julie Schoenbachler.
