BAKERSFIELD, CA—The Mogharebi Group, (“TMG”) has completed the sale of Dana Apartments, a 49-unit community that is located on Dana Street in Bakersfield, CA. The property sold with multiple offers for a sales price of $5.25 million. Otto Ozen and Mark Bonas of The Mogharebi Group represented the seller, a private investment group and the buyer, both based in Los Angeles, CA.

“Due to the demand for quality living units, the property was recently repositioned through a complete renovation” says Otto Ozen, Executive Vice President of The Mogharebi Group. “As a result, the property was fully occupied, producing a solid cash-on-cash return through proven rental growth. We aggressively marketed it to our list of high net worth private clients who are currently looking for exchange up-legs, this strategy generated multiple offers and closed at 97% of list price.” Mark Bonas, Senior Vice President of The Mogharebi Group concluded, “The property represented a great value without heavy lifting for the buyer to capitalize on its full potential.”
