Built in 2007 and situated on 3.53 acres, the property is just off highway 291 and is within a busy retail area that includes Wal-Mart Supercenter, Office Max, Sears and many other national retailers and dining.
Matthew Mousavi, director with Faris Lee Investments, represented the buyer, a private family trust, from Hawaii. Baum Realty out of Chicago represented the seller, CFM 291 Fitness, LLC from Omaha, NE. The transaction closed in just 30 days.
“We were able to secure a phenomenal deal for our client,” said Mousavi. “The closing cap rate was 9.45 percent and will be a 10.65 cap rate in 2013 with 12 percent increases every five years thereafter. Faris Lee was able structure a very clean, quick, and no hassle all-cash offer that was lower than asking price to maximize value for our client.”
The buyer is currently working with Faris Lee’s Capital Markets Group for a potential refinance of the property that will take advantage of historically low interest rates. “These low rates coupled with the high cap rate will result in the buyer’s immediate cash on cash return to be well over 14 percent,” added Mousavi.
