Belmar, NJ, October 18, 2017 – In a $5.7 million garden-apartment sale arranged by Gebroe-Hammer Associates, the 30-unit Silver Lake Garden Apartments has established a new per-unit price benchmark for pre-1970s-era product within Central New Jersey’s Shore submarket. The suburban seaside community is located at 104 Fifth Ave., at the easternmost point of Belmar and within the heart of one the state’s highest barrier-to-entry geographic regions.
The firm exclusively represented the original developer/owner, Anza, Inc., and procured the buyer, a private investor, for the circa-1966 low-rise complex. The sale garnered a $190,000 per-unit-price, a new high for apartment buildings constructed prior to 1970 in the Jersey Shore region.
Comprised of six two-bedroom and 24 one-bedroom layouts, Silver Lake Gardens has outstanding curb appeal thanks to its contiguous and unique horseshoe-shape arrangement. In addition, this quaint garden-style community has undergone extensive upgrades since being built, the latest of which were completed from 2012 through 2015.
Capital improvements have included updated kitchens with ceramic-tile flooring, baths with marble sinks and vintage-style vanities, dedicated dining areas and polished hardwood flooring. Community upgrades range from a new water heater and boilers, electrical and roofing. The 23-space on-site parking lot is an added convenience for tenants who also have immediate access to on-street parking.
