Real estate news: 14-unit apartment building in Anaheim sells for $4.65 million

A 14-unit apartment building in Anaheim has been sold for $4.65 million to an unidentified buyer, according to CBRE.

CBRE’s Dan Blackwell represented the buyer and unidentified seller in the deal.

The property at 129 S. Olive St. is in downtown Anaheim, steps away from the popular Anaheim Packing District.

The property was built in 1986 and has two-bedroom, two-bathroom townhome style apartments with vaulted ceilings, central air, patios and balconies.

“Within 24 hours of marketing the property for sale, we immediately had multiple offers from qualified buyers and went under contract,” said Blackwell. “The strong rental demand in the area supports full occupancy.”

The sale price translates to $332,143 per unit.

Property tax postponement

California homeowners recently affected by wildfires have until June 1 to apply for the Property Tax Postponement program.

The paperwork required to determine eligibility can take some time and effort to pull together, according State Controller Betty T. Yee.

“I urge anyone who thinks this program could benefit them to do their research and begin the process now,” said Yee, who is California’s chief fiscal officer.

PTP allows homeowners who are seniors, blind or have a disability and who meet income, equity and other requirements to defer payment of property taxes on their primary residence. The standard filing period closed Feb. 10, but residents of 31 counties in governor-declared disaster areas were granted an extension.

Applications for 2020-21 PTP must be postmarked by Tuesday, June 1, for residents in Los Angeles, San Bernardino and San Diego counties.

The Controllers office said California homeowners in 2019-2020 postponed more than $4 million in residential property taxes through PTP. As of May 4, more than $4.2 million had been paid out for tax year 2020-21.

Funding is limited and applications are processed in the order they are received. Participants must reapply each year and demonstrate they continue to meet eligibility requirements.

The interest rate for all taxes postponed under PTP this tax year is 5%. A lien is placed on the real property, or a security agreement filed for a manufactured home until the deferred taxes are repaid.

Applications for the 2021-22 tax year will be available in September. Applications and program details can be found online at or by calling 800-952-5661.
