ATLANTA  — Multi Housing Advisors (MHA) has brokered the $20.2 million sale of Aslan on the River, a 324-unit apartment community in the Atlanta suburb of Jonesboro, Ga. Josh Goldfarb, co-founder and co-managing partner of MHA, represented the seller and was the only broker involved in the deal. Hamilton Point Investments, based in Old Lyme, Conn., purchased the community, which was built in 2001.

“As 2013 nears completion, investor interest in the metro Atlanta and southeastern U.S. apartment markets remains very strong,” Goldfarb said. “With interest rates in check, the economy improving and job growth picking up, household formations are increasing and that means this sector, which has performed so well over the past several years, will continue to thrive. We expect to see investment sales continue at a brisk pace for multifamily assets of all types.”

With the Aslan on the River transaction, MHA’s Atlanta office has completed $160 million in investment sales this year. MHA, which also has offices in Birmingham, Ala., and Charlotte, N.C., and completes transactions throughout the South, is aiming to close 100 transactions in 2013.

Earlier this fall in metro Atlanta, MHA brokered the $15.6 million sale of Concepts 21-Roswell, a 304-unit community in Roswell, Ga., and the $5.8 million, off-market sale of Wynscape, a 272-unit community in Chamblee, Ga.

AH Capital, a Los Angeles-based investor, bought Concepts 21-Roswell from Atlanta-based ECI Capital, while New York-based Varden Capital purchased Wynscape from Atlanta-based J.C. Gay. MHA represented the sellers in both transactions and was the only broker involved in the deals.

MHA recently expanded its Charlotte office and intends to open additional offices in the South. The firm has made a number of significant new hires over the past year as well, adding experienced brokers to expand its geographic reach and to take advantage of the increasing volume of multifamily investment sales.
