Colliers Facilitates Sale of 53-Unit Apartment Complex in Pinole, California


Massive demand in the Bay Area multifamily market sparks year-end transaction in low-velocity market

Pinole, Calif. February 5, 2022 – Leading diversified professional services and investment management company Colliers recently facilitated the sale of the Pinole Vista Apartments, an 87,375 square-foot multifamily community consisting of 13 buildings and 53 units in Pinole, California. The property, which is situated on a 1.04-acre parcel off San Pablo Ave at 801 Alvarez Ave, sold for a total of $15,400,000.

Senior Vice President Ryan Rodriguez and team lead of the Oakland office’s East Bay Multifamily Team, and Senior Associate Justin Krupp, represented both the seller and buyer, a private family trust.

"The Pinole Vista Apartments are an ideal multifamily offering that not only sends a clear message that the Bay Area market is continuing to rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic, but also shows the value in professionally renovated multifamily assets,” said Rodriguez.

The property recently underwent a $5 million renovation that included interior updates to each unit, new roofing and enhancement of exterior areas such as new walkways, French drainage and fencing. The new owners have the opportunity to invest in landscaping, community amenities, carports and adding additional units.

Pinole Vista Apartments were built in 1965 and offer a diverse unit mix ranging from studio to two bedroom units. The newly renovated units feature wood-like flooring, granite countertops, built-in cabinetry, in-unit washers and dryers, private decks and built-in ventilation systems.

Decreasing unemployment rates combined with climbing land prices have driven demand for well-maintained multifamily assets in the Bay Area market, especially in suburban markets such as Oakland, San Jose, Vallejo and Walnut Creek.

Krupp added, "The recent influx of capital to the Bay Area multifamily market has created a very competitive environment. Since Q2 of 2021, correctly priced listings have generated tons of interest from new investors and seasoned operators alike.”
