Big apartment complexes are selling in Kitsap

2Q==Kitsap’s rental housing market is hot and investors have taken notice.

At least eight large apartment complexes sold in the past year for a combined $174 million, according to county records.

One Los Angeles investment group, Benedict Canyon Equities, appears to have acquired four apartment complexes in Silverdale for more than $30 million each. My calls to Benedict Canyon were not returned.
