Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, one of the most dominant retail investment groups in the western United States and a market leader in the sale of retail properties, announced today that William B. Asher and Patrick G. Kent represented the seller in the sale of a single-tenant Walgreens in Victorville, Calif. The purchase price was not disclosed. The reported cap rate was 5.69%.
Located at 15318 Roy Rogers Drive in Victorville, the 14,740-square-foot freestanding building (including a drive-thru) is situated on a 1.31-acre parcel of land. The building, which is leased to Walgreens for an initial 25-year lease term with ten 5-year options, was built in 2011 and is a part of Desert Sun Plaza, which is anchored by Winco Foods.
“At a 5.69% cap rate, the sale represents the lowest cap rate for a single-tenant drug store in southern California in over 3 years,” said William B. Asher, managing director at Hanley Investment Group. “The demand for single-tenant credit retail investments, specifically newly built drugstores like a Walgreens, remains one of the most sought after investments in today’s market, especially in California.”
“We procured an all cash buyer that closed escrow in approximately 2 weeks,” said Patrick G. Kent, senior vice president at Hanley Investment Group. “The buyer, who fulfilled a 1031 exchange with the acquisition, opened escrow non-contingent with a significant deposit to secure the deal.”
Asher notes the sale of the Walgreens in Victorville represents the seventh single-tenant Walgreens in southern California that Hanley Investment Group has sold in the last year; the most by any brokerage company in southern California in 2011-2012.
The buyer, a family trust from Solvang, Calif., was represented by Vince Schwab at Marcus & Millichap in San Francisco. The seller was AMROYCIV, LLC, based in Newport Beach, Calif.
