Oklahoma City's Chaparral Townhomes Sold for $11,500,000
Chaparral Townhouses has been purchased by 2030, LLC for $11,500,000. The property, originally built in 1984 had been owned and operated by the original developer for the past 32 years. Chaparral was among the first large apartment communities to be built near the downtown area and sits on approximately twelve acres just north of the new General Electric research facility. The property is 100% subsidized under a rare HUD program called Mark-to-Market. The overall goal of the Mark-to-Market program is to reduce federal spending on housing subsidies by making it financially feasible for multifamily properties to offer quality, market-competitive housing at affordable rents. While properties in the urban core sub-market have an average rent of $1.35 to $1.74 per square foot, Chaparral provides housing in the same sub-market for just $0.57 per square foot. The owner, 2030, LLC plans to continue operating the property according to the HUD required guidelines. After being marketed for less than a month, the property received multiple competitive offers and was placed into contract. The strong market combined with professional marketing proved to be successful by delivering an average price per unit of $84,559; which is 57% increase above the $53,995 two-year average for properties built in the 1980’s. David Dirkschneider of Price Edwards & Company handled the transaction.
