TAMPA, FL – Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a multifamily brokerage division of Marcus & Millichap serving the needs of institutional and major private investors, has arranged the sale of Bristol Place Apartments of Tampa Palms, a 340-unit multifamily complex in Tampa. The $32 million selling price equates to more than $94,000 per unit.

IPA Florida executive director Jamie B. May advised the seller, AVR Realty Co. The buyer is Preston Giuliano Capital Partners.  

“Bristol Place Apartments of Tampa Palms has tremendous value-add potential through strategic capital investments in interior unit renovations,” says May. “The asset also provides new ownership with an opportunity to capitalize on rental rate increases as the apartment market is expected to enter a prolonged recovery period.”
