NorthEnd Equities and Motti Schapira have acquired a 14-property multifamily portfolio totaling 2,384 units across Florida from Amzak Capital Management for $240 million.

The sale marks the highest dollar volume transaction in Central, Southwest and North Florida’s history, according to CBRE, which arranged the transaction.

Michael Regan and Frank Carriera of CBRE represented both the seller and the buyers in the deal.

Regan, an executive vice president with CBRE in Tampa, Fla., said in a prepared statement the off-market transaction highlights the continued demand for low basis value-add multifamily properties throughout Florida. He said capital is continuing to flow into Central and North Florida from out-of-state buyers looking to scale in one of the country’s fastest growing states.

The properties were built between the 1970s and 1990s. The portfolio has approximately 2 million square feet with an average unit size of 833 square feet.
