With several build-to-rent communities in varying stages of construction, Scottsdale-based Harvard Investments Inc. sold its 212-unit FirstStreet Happy Valley rental community in north Phoenix for $87.85 million.

Omaha, Nebraska-based Spruce Capital Group is the buyer, paying $414,000 per unit for the property at 1717 W. Happy Valley Road.

Long known for developing master-planned communities, Harvard entered the build-to-rent sector three years ago, creating a BTR brand called FirstStreet.

This property represents Harvard’s first build-to-rent community, completing the project on 18 acres two years ago.

Featuring rental units averaging 1,904 square feet, the property is 94% leased. Floor plans have attached and detached garages. A limited number of carriage units above the garages have private garage access and include soundproofing.
