Bulk condo deals, also known as fractured deals, allow investors to take ownership in a condo complex by purchasing individual condo units.

A handful of fractured condo deals have closed in South Florida in recent years. About a year ago, New York-based ESG Kullen paid $17.9 million, or about $151,500 per unit, for a bulk condo deal in Boynton Beach.

Axonic Properties, also of New York, picked up 224 units of a 385-unit complex in West Palm Beach for $13.75 million, or about $61,000 per apartment, in 2016.
