Stonegate Acquires Apartment Property in New Jersey for $2.9M –

Press Release

Redwood closes sale in high-demand Bergen County

Hasbrouck Heights, N.J. January 25th, 2016 – Redwood Realty Advisors is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed the sale of a 21-unit apartment property in Fairview, N.J. The 452 Harding Place property sold for $2.9 million and a cap rate of 5.5%. Stonegate, a private investment group, purchased the property from long-time owner Harding Fairview Inc.

“Bergen County continues to be a very hot investment sales market due to the high barriers to entry that exist,” says Thomas McConnell, CCIM, managing partner at Redwood Realty. “We continue to see sellers who are taking advantage of aggressive pricing, as well as strong demand from buyers who see opportunities to reposition properties and achieve higher rents,” says McConnell.

“We recognized the strength of Bergen County when we began building our portfolio in 2010 and have since invested heavily in the area, which has become the most popular submarket in Northern New Jersey,” says Stonegate Principal Steven Gelbtuch. “We identified 452 Harding Place as a terrific boutique building with enormous opportunity to upgrade the property into a luxury apartment complex,” added Gelbtuch. The property sits atop a cliff that offers beautiful views, and it is less than 2 blocks away from a train station with direct service to Manhattan and nearby retail shopping.

The Redwood Realty Advisors team who worked on this transaction included the following:

 Steven Matovski, Director

 Michael Scrima, Investment Associate

 Kevin McCrann, Managing Partner

 Thomas McConnell, CCIM, Managing Partner
