Class B Strength Drives Houston Multifamily Sale

JLL completes sale of Broadmead Apartments

Houston, Sept. 21, 2016 – Despite a softening market overall, Houston's Class B multifamily sector remains highly desirable to investors. On behalf of seller Broadmead Apartments, LTD., JLL's Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has completed the sale of Broadmead Apartments, a Class B multifamily asset located at 2801 Broadmead Drive in Houston, Texas. Houston-based Nitya Capital purchased the 235-unit property.

Managing Directors Chip Nash and Greg Austin, and Vice President Bob Heard led the JLL team on the sale.

"Houston's Class B multifamily market remains strong despite economic headwinds," said Nash. "Class B properties, like the Broadmead, are consistently occupied by a large segment of the population, presenting buyers with a solid investment and promising value-add opportunity."

Located just minutes from Reliant Park and the Texas Medical Center, units at Broadmead Apartments feature walk-in closets, private balconies and vaulted ceilings. Community amenities include a swimming pool, gated access, on-site maintenance and proximity to public transportation.

The Broadmead was 95 percent leased at the time of closing. The overall occupancy rate of Houston's Class B multifamily sector is 95.5 percent.
