RE Journals: Kiser Group brokers $4.5M Ravenswood portfolio

Kiser Group recently brokered a 36-unit portfolio for $4,500,000. The properties are located at 4855 N. Hermitage, 4544 N. Wolcott and 4616 N. Wolcott in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. Kiser Group’s Rick Ofman represented the buyer, LakePointe Apartments, and Lee Kiser and Danny Logarakis represented the seller.

“Between the location and opportunity, I knew this would be a great value-add play for the buyer, whose past developments have been largely in Uptown,” said Rick Ofman. “When these buildings are finished, they will be outstanding to live in.”

All three buildings are 1960s construction and value-add opportunities. There are 10 units in 4855 N. Hermitage while 4544 N. Wolcott has 11 units and 4616 N. Wolcott has 15 units.

“With nearly 30 showings and nine offers, there was strong investor interest for this portfolio. The price-per-door may seem low for multifamily properties in Ravenswood because these buildings are prime value-add opportunities with all units needing to be updated,” said Danny Logarakis.
