San Antonio, TX — Atlanta-headquartered ARA, the largest privately held, full-service investment advisory brokerage firm in the nation focusing exclusively on the multihousing industry, is pleased to announce the sale of Oakwell Springs, a 252-unit community located in San Antonio, Texas.

ARA San Antonio-based brokers, Casey Fry and Matt Michelson, represented an undisclosed seller in the transaction. The property was sold to Dallas, TX-based Presidium Group, vertically-integrated diversified real estate investment and management firm specializing in opportunistic and value-added transactions throughout the United States. The new owner plans to upgrade and reposition the property.

“Oakwell Springs represents an excellent opportunity to reposition a Class C asset that sits within a strong area with good economic fundamentals”, says Fry. “Located in northeast San Antonio, the community is ripe for repositioning through enhanced amenities and upgraded interiors. Oakwell Springs is a true value-add acquisition.”

Built in 1972, Oakwell Springs is a garden-style apartment community comprised of one- and two- bedroom units. The property offers residents a variety of amenities including a fitness center, a swimming pool with a grilling area, a sports court, and a 24-hour access gate.  In addition, the property is located at 1946 NE Loop 410, allowing residents convenient access to IH – 35 and US – 281.

Occupancy at the time of sale was 70%.
