Sunnyside has had a strong multifamily investment market for quite some time. However, in 2016 the Sunnyside multifamily market has taken a big hit with sales volume, number of transactions, average price per unit and average price per square foot down by around 40%-50% year over year. Even though the data shows otherwise, Sunnyside still seems to be a very attractive investment haven for first time investors and for larger property owners.

Eastern Consolidated Director Jacob Tzfanya, and Associate Director Ted Volynets, represented the seller, a private investor, and procured the buyer, a real estate investment group, in this off-market deal.
