Illinois limited liability company i3 Northwest Holdings paid $7 million last month for the Northwest Hills Apartments in west Little Rock.
The 128-unit apartments at 11701 Mara Lynn Drive were built in 1983. The apartments sold for $54,700 per unit.
The seller was Maxus Properties of North Kansas City, Mo., through its subsidiary, MLake 21 LLC.
Northwest Hills Apartments appraised for $5.3 million last year. Maxus bought the apartments for $5 million in 2011. The apartments sold for $4.1 million in 1984.
Northwest Hills is comprised of at least five buildings covering more than eight acres.
Ryan Snyder, manager of Westmont, Ill.-based MLake 21, signed the warranty deed. Peggy Sim incorporated i3 Northwest Holdings in October.
The Multifamily Group, owned by Richard Cheek and Ted Bailey III, represented Maxus Properties. Cheek and Bailey follow the Pulaski County apartment market and broker multifamily sales.
The sale went through a formal marketing process, Bailey said. "We had an offer deadline and got several offers," he said.
Maxus then had a "best and final" round, which left about five bidders, Bailey said. i3 Northwest Holdings had the highest bid.
The Little Rock apartment market has been active this year, Bailey said. Buyers of Little Rock apartments like the city and the fact that it's a capital city, he said.
Being a capital city provides stability because of government employment, Bailey said. "And a huge industry is healthcare," he said.
Some of the Maxus-owned apartments in Arkansas include the Glen at Polo Park Apartments in Bentonville, Wellington at Chenal Apartments in Little Rock, Foothills Apartments in North Little Rock and Highland Pointe Apartments in Maumelle.
