Monthly rents range from $1,045 to $1,420, and units range in size from 900-square-foot one-bedrooms to 1,700-square-foot three bedrooms, according to Amenities at the West Palm Beach property include a common grilling/picnic area, dog park, swimming pool and sundeck.

Since January, investors and developers sold and purchased more than $4 billion worth of apartments, many of which are located in suburban areas. In February, Highland Capital Management paid close to $27 million for a Boynton Beach apartment complex.
