CBRE Arranges Sales of Two Contiguous Multifamily Fourplex Properties in Huntington Beach, Calif., for $5.43 Million

CBRE announced the sales of two four-unit multifamily properties in Huntington Beach, Calif., to a private investor, resulting in a combined sales price of $5,425,000.

CBRE’s Executive Vice President Dan Blackwell and First Vice President Mike O’Neill represented both the buyer and the seller in two transactions: a fourplex at 321 22nd Street and the neighboring fourplex at 317 22nd Street in Huntington Beach. The seller was based in Huntington Beach, and the buyer was from Westminster, Calif. Neither the buyer nor the seller was in a 1031 exchange.

Both properties sold for $2,712,500 each, representing $678,125 per unit and $661 per square foot. This was the first time that either property had been listed for sale. The sale price also set a record as the highest price for a fourplex in Huntington Beach over the past two years, according to CBRE.

“We represented the repeat client seller and generated eight competitive offers, selecting an all-cash buyer who wanted to purchase both assets. We closed escrow in 32 days at 98.6% of the asking price,” Blackwell noted. “The two neighboring multifamily assets are identical properties, each sitting on a double lot. As a result, the investor acquired a total of four contiguous lots, offering potential alternative asset plans.”

Built in 1972, each of the two-story multifamily buildings spans 4,101 square feet and sits on a 5,750-square-foot lot. Both fourplexes feature a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom floorplans (one one-bedroom unit, one two-bedroom unit, and two three-bedroom units). Each apartment unit has a private outdoor space with either a patio or balcony, and the units are individually metered for gas and electricity. Both communities feature six single-car garages, one open-space parking spot, and a laundry facility. A new roof was installed on both buildings in 2019.

“The properties are located in downtown Huntington Beach, one of the most desirable rental markets in Southern California, offering proximity to beaches, retail, dining, and entertainment,” O’Neill highlighted. “Given their prime location, the two 22nd Street apartment buildings also present a value-add opportunity. Through a renovation plan, current rents can be increased by approximately 20% to reach market levels allowing the investor to capitalize on unrealized income potential.”
