Ashcroft Capital secured a $62.24 million mortgage from Newmark. New York-based Ashcroft specializes in multifamily properties, boasting a 13,062-unit portfolio.

The Coconut Creek purchase, which equates to $195,555 per apartment, was one of three made through the Ashcroft Value-Add Fund III, according to an article penned by Ben Nelson, Ashcroft’s investor relations manager. 

Per the firm’s stated strategy, it will likely renovate the property to increase rental rates and then sell the asset in the next five to seven years. Asking rents currently range between $1,735 and $2,889 a month, according to Apartments.com.

The Aventura-based seller, Advenir, had purchased the Cocoplum community for $64.5 million in 2017, per records. 

Representatives for both the buyer and seller did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
