8-unit garden-style multifamily property

SAN DIEGO (Feb. 22, 2024) — Northmarq’s San Diego Multifamily Investment Sales team consisting of Erik Anderson, senior vice president, and Benn Vogelsang, senior vice president, has completed the sale of an 8-unit garden-style multifamily property for $3.44 million. The property was built in 1986 and is located at 431 Van Houten Avenue in El Cajon. Northmarq represented both parties in the transaction. All units are three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom townhomes, averaging 1,283 sq. ft.

“Properties with uncommon unit types/mixes are getting more attention nowadays,” said Anderson. “The buyer was attracted to the rental experience townhome units offer to tenants in addition to the location in El Cajon.”

Situated on Van Houten Ave, the multifamily property is located just off El Cajon’s main street and one block from retail and dining amenities. The City of El Cajon is located in the East County region of San Diego County. Home to approximately 100,000 residents, the city is one of the most affordable submarkets in the region. El Cajon is located within a 20-minute drive of all of San Diego County’s top five employment centers, making it a popular choice for workers in a wide variety of industries who desire rental housing not priced at the region’s high-end of the scale.
