SAGE Investment Real Estate Advisors announced it recently sold a 24-unit garden-apartment complex in Oradell for an undisclosed price. The firm’s co-founders and partners, Greg Pine and Steve Tragash, managed the sales process and arranged the transaction on behalf of long-term ownership, Oradell Associates LLC.

SAGE also procured the unnamed buyer, a private investor that has been active in Bergen County over the years.

Located at 456 Kinderkamack Road, this well-maintained courtyard-style property is two blocks from the Oradell Avenue/Kinderkamack Road intersection and the borough’s main business district. New Jersey Transit’s Oradell Station, with service along the Pascack Valley Line, and NJ Transit Bus Route 165 are within a four-minute walk.

“This owner, with whom I’ve had a relationship for the past 15 years, has owned and been a remarkable steward for the property since the 1960s, making it an attractive value-add offering. Because of this, Oradell Apartments was sold at a very aggressive cap rate attributable to its below-market rents,” Pine said. “There are two parallel investment storylines in the market right now — new construction and value add. Both asset classes are highly desirable — depending on the investor’s mandate. Several buyers expressed interest in this specific property based on the location, size and opportunity for a new owner to create value.”

In addition to closing the sale of Oradell Apartments, SAGE recently was involved in the sale of 59 Class A multifamily units at the Metropolitan Lofts in downtown Morristown, and a garden-style property in Elizabeth.
