PRLog - July 8, 2014 - SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Ridge Capital Investors, LLC and an affiliate of Andell, Inc. have acquired Sierra Ridge Apartments, a 136-unit property for $18 million. The Class B+ property is located in the affluent suburb of Roseville in Sacramento, which is known for its high quality of life, excellent schools and easy access to major area employers.
Sierra Ridge Apartments
Sierra Ridge was originally developed in 2000 and is a well maintained, 99% occupied property. Since its development, Sierra Ridge has been a very strong performer, even during the downturn of 2008 through 2012. With plans to meaningfully reposition the unit interiors and the property exterior and amenities, Ridge will capitalize on the property’s strong market position by bringing Sierra Ridge up to the level of the Class A competition.
Within the region, Roseville is one of the strongest performing submarkets. As of Q1 2014, year-over-year apartment rent growth has been reported as high as 9.5%, while vacancy decreased by 1.2% to 3.6%.

This is Ridge and Andell’s second joint venture investment in Sacramento in the last six months.
