Newberg apartment complex sells
The Boston Square Apartments have sold for $1.625 million. The 20-unit complex is located at 1005 Wynooski St.
Real estate investment company HFO handled the sale, which was announced Friday.
The company noted that it had priced the property aggressively – especially for a tertiary market, but closed the sale at the desired price by adding a few additional offers with the sale, including extending the closing timeline.
The Boston Square complex was built in 1980.
