Westerville, OH – The Champion Companies capitalized on a strong apartment market in 2016, selling three communities, totaling nearly 830 units.
The three communities, located across Central Ohio, attracted buyers from various states including New York, Connecticut and Michigan, and all boasted strong returns for their respective investors.
“Champion’s investor base is growing rapidly due to consistent yields and successful exits from a multitude of real estate projects,” said Brian Yeager, Champion’s president and CEO.
The Westerville-based real estate firm attributes this year’s success to an increasingly healthy apartment industry. “This is truly a testament to the incredibly strong apartment market and steady employment growth we’ve seen here in Central Ohio,” said Yeager. “We’re seeing more regional and national apartment companies entering Central Ohio than ever before.”
According to Yeager, Champion’s not slowing down as 2017 looks to be another exciting year with more opportunistic purchases and planned dispositions expected.
