The market continued to be hot in late 2018, with multiple offers on the property. The winning bidders purchased the property at $25,000 over list price, which may seem high, yet the cap rate was still a higher than average (especially for close-in) at 5.65% on the actual scheduled income. The market average for cap rates is typically in the lower 5% range, sometimes sub 5% for close-in apartments. Out of the 19 transactions I was involved with in 2019, this was the highest cap rate deal in Portland.
