LAS VEGAS — The Siegel Group Nevada, Inc., a real estate investment and management company, announced today that it had purchased the former Palm Court Inn in Tucson, Arizona for $6.10 million. At closing the property was approximately 90% occupied, reflecting the locations strong rental demand.

This location is in addition to the company’s sizable presence throughout Nevada, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina and Ohio.
Built in 1974, the 210-unit property is comprised of five, two-story buildings with a pool and guest laundry facility and mix of studio and one-bedroom units. The Siegel Group will immediately commence making upgrades to the property and addressing deferred maintenance and operational issues resulting from mismanagement of the property prior to takeover.
