LAW FIRM ON DEED: Hill Ward Henderson, Tampa

PLANS, DESCRIPTION: A Canadian investment firm operating as Rifai Properties LLC purchased the 32-unit Oakwood Trace Apartments for $1.04 million.

The price equated to $32,344 per unit and $50.73 per square foot.

Built in 1975, the Oakwood Trace Apartments features four two-story concrete block buildings.

The property houses 16 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedrooms units with 550 to 725 square feet of living space. The property was 85% occupied at the time of the sale.

Kevin Kelleher, Bob Goldfinger and Darron Kattan of Franklin Street handled the transaction.

“This was an estate sale by a long-time owner,” Kattan says. “It was a stable cash flow deal, where the new owners believed they could trim expenses and push rents over time.”

Earlier this year, Rifai Properties LLC purchased a 75-unit apartment complex on 42nd Street in Tampa for $2.65 million.
