200-Unit Las Vegas Multifamily Property Purchased by Bascom Group for Over $40 Million
LAS VEGAS, NV – The Bascom Group – a significant player as of late in the Southern Nevada real estate scene – has announced the purchase of Sun Chase, a 200-unit multifamily property in Las Vegas for over $40 million.
Scott McClave, Bascom’s Senior Principal of Acquisitions, noted that the purchase was driven by the city’s continued population and employment growth and the subsequent – and continuing – high demand for apartment rental options.
“Sun Chase is a highly desirable asset as it was previously owner-managed with a focus on maintaining occupancy,” he said. “This acquisition offers tremendous opportunity to optimize property operations through institutional property management and a focused renovation program. Macro factors such as population growth, employment growth and diversification, and an ongoing housing supply/demand imbalance continue to a foster a highly favorable rental market.”
Bascom purchased Sun Chase for $40,500,000, which translates to $202,000 per unit; the firm stated that Apartment Management Consultants would be providing property management services for their tenants.
Originally built in 1984, Sun Chase is described as a “low density” apartment community, consisting of one and two-bedroom units with many of its floorplans including private patios or balconies. In addition, the complex includes many amenities for residents, including a fitness center, resident clubhouse, pool / BBQ area, and a putting green.
Upon their purchase of the community, Bascom announced that they would be sinking a significant sum of money into the property in an attempt to “modernize” it; renovations to the fitness center, clubhouse, and pool areas are planned, and the putting green is slated to be repurposed into a landscaped park area for residents that will feature a shaded play structure, BBQ station, and seating areas.
Sun Chase is located in the vicinity of multiple attractions in the Las Vegas valley, including the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, the Hughes Center, and the newly-built Allegiant Stadium, home of the NFL Las Vegas Raiders.
