Franklin Street’s Tampa multifamily brokerage team has already recorded the most successful year in its 10-year history by closing over $248 million in deals through third quarter 2017. By comparison, the team arranged $167.5 million in apartment sales for all of 2016.
Franklin Street arranged $54.455 million in apartment sales in Florida during the third quarter of 2017. Darron Kattan, Kevin Kelleher, Zachary Ames and Robert Goldfinger of Franklin Street Real Estate Services in Tampa brokered six transactions with a total of 695 units.
“We continue to see demand for well-located apartment communities exceed supply in Central Florida,” said Kelleher, Senior Director at Franklin Street. “In the near term, we don’t see this imbalance changing and it will continue to keep cap rates compressed for the foreseeable future.”
“The overall theme this year has been a supply/demand imbalance,” said Ames, Director at Franklin Street. “There continues to be shortage of supply of the market with significant capital still chasing and looking for yield. Even with interest rates increasing throughout the year, this trend is what has kept cap rates compressed and pricing at all-time highs. Debt remains fluid and fundamentals for B/C class multifamily remains strong, and we do not foresee that changing soon.”

• Waterleaf – Franklin Street represented a California-based seller and a South Florida-based buyer, both private syndicators, in the transaction of a 396-unit apartment community at 1942 SE Hillmoor Drive in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, for $26.75 million.
