Estacada, Oregon is located 33 miles from Portland, and is about a 45 minute drive from the big city. The population is under 3000 people (per the 2010 census), and this small bedroom community has a charming downtown street and is only 17 miles southeast of Oregon City.
Similar to other secondary and tertiary apartment market deals in 2017, this listing procured a number of offers. In the past, this small town apartment building may have had more vacancies, and much lower rents. However, this specific property has a strong rental history and is in very good condition. Since the buyer has the opportunity to upgrade the property living conditions slightly, there is potential to create a 7.5%+ cap rate, which is a really good deal in this hot apartment market. Anytime a buyer can create a 7%+ cap rate (even post closing) in the hot multifamily market it tends to be a “good deal”.
