Christopher Zorbas, senior managing director of IPA (Institutional Property Advisors), and Austin Huffman, an investment associate with The Zorbas Group in Marcus & Millichap’s San Diego office, represented both parties in the transaction.

The 72,650 square-foot Villa Capri complex has 98 apartments in 11 buildings on a 4.2-acre site.

Built in 1971, the apartments range from an average of 640 square feet for one-bedroom units to 954 square feet for two-bedroom units, according to CoStar, a real estate listing firm.

“The property is a well-maintained apartment complex on the 78/15 corridor where total employment exceeds 283, 000,” Zorbas said. “Average household income within a five-mile radius of the property is $85,524 and the submarket continues to experience solid rent growth as renters migrate north along the I-15 corridor looking for more affordable options.”
