Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) June 04, 2014
Neal Hamou and Kaveh Ebrahimi of Sands Investment Group (SIG), a national net lease investment brokerage firm, announces the sale of a single tenant net leased AutoZone in Decatur, Illinois at a 5.50% cap rate.
This investment represents an absolute NNN ground lease with nine years remaining on the initial lease term with built in extension options. The lease is structured as an absolute triple net lease wherein the tenant is responsible for insurance, roof & structure, taxes and any CAM charges. AutoZone is the sole occupant of the 9,211 square foot retail pad located along Route 48 in Decatur, IL on a 68,781 square foot parcel. The investment has almost ten years remaining on the term, with numerous rental escalations built into each of the extension options.
This particular investment was brought to market and closed in under six weeks with an all-cash exchange buyer. Although Decatur, IL does not boast an overwhelming population, the attractive lease structure, strong credit tenant, and great location made this investment quite attractive and aided in the quick turnover.
“We are excited about the current momentum in the net lease arena and the pace at which investors are shifting to this asset class. We saw impressive results in Q1 and are quite optimistic about the future of net lease within the retail space,” says SIG Net Lease Advisor Neal Hamou. “With SIG’s sector-specific platform, advisors gain the enhanced insight and market knowledge they need to represent their customers successfully and deliver the most effective results.”
