Commercial real estate brokerage Marcus & Millichap announced the sale of two Tampa apartment properties for an average of $58,665 per unit.

The two low-rise apartment complexes have 472 units altogether and sold for a total of $27.69 million.

“The properties were cross-collateralized with in-place debt that had to be assumed, which took a couple of months to complete,” Frank Carriera, a vice president investments of Marcus & Millichap, said in a press release. The new owner has an opportunity “to add value through the continuation of strategic interior upgrades and the ability to capitalize on below-market rents.”
