​BALTIMORE, MD – Transwestern today announces it represented Continental Realty Corp. in the disposition of four Baltimore apartment communities totaling 627 units. Schweb Partners purchased Hunting Hills and Mallow Hill, totaling 230 units, and New York-based Kindred Property Group purchased Oaklee Village and Leeds Avenue, totaling 397 units. The sale prices were not disclosed. Dean Sigmon, Robin Williams and Justin Shay of Transwestern’s Mid-Atlantic Multifamily Group brokered the transactions on behalf of Continental Realty.

“All of these properties provided a compelling value-add investment opportunity,” said Shay. “Continental Realty had already achieved rental premiums by renovating interiors on some of the units. Additionally, the properties will continue to benefit from proximity to major employment centers like the University of Maryland – Baltimore County and Woodlawn Federal Center in neighboring Baltimore County.”

According to Transwestern research, the Baltimore metro professional/business services sector added 10,900 new jobs in 2016, the most of any sector in the market, followed by education/health services, which expanded by 8,200 new positions.

“The Baltimore metro’s strong job growth in higher-earning wage sectors is creating more opportunities for value-add investors to achieve substantial yield,” said Sigmon.

Hunting Hills, located at 4601 Pen Lucy Road, and Mallow Hill, located at 220 Stonecroft Road, are operated as a single apartment community, increasing management efficiency. Oaklee Village, located at 1001 Arion Park Road, and Leeds Avenue, located at 1005 Leeds Ave., are also operated as a single community. With proximity to Interstates 695, 95 and 70 and Routes 1 and 40, the properties offer convenient access to downtown Baltimore and numerous employers in Baltimore County, including St. Agnes Hospital, the University of Maryland – Baltimore County, the U.S. Social Security Administration and BWI Airport.
