"Ocean County offers ideal demographics and a high concentration of new and existing multi-family product that, if it follows statewide trends as expected, will result in heightened investment trading activity in the coming 12 to 18 months," said Brecher.
Built in 2008, Dover Chase was 95 percent occupied at the time of sale. Features include a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. Spacious floor plans with nine-foot ceilings, a washer and dryer in each unit, on-site parking, gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, tiled bathrooms, balcony/patios, air conditioning and walk-in closets are among the modern amenities. Most units also have attached garages with direct apartment access.
"This Class-A, amenity filled garden complex is located just seven miles from the center of town and within minutes from local beaches, both of which contributed toward the per-unit price of approximately $146,000," said Follman, who noted the seller plans to acquire a distressed out-of-state asset with the proceeds of this sale as part of an exchange as well.
