IRVINE, Calif., May 9, 2018 – Faris Lee Investments, a leading retail advisory and investment sales firm, has completed the $2.3 million sale of a 3,600-square-foot single-tenant retail property. The new ownership will convert the space, which is currently a Japanese restaurant, for use as its dental practice.
Managing Directors Thomas Chichester and Joseph Chichester and Director Matt Brooks with Faris Lee Investments represented the seller, a local private investor. The buyer, a local dental practice, was represented by Jones Real Estate.
“We identified a strong buyer within just one week of marketing the property, and had several backup offers,” said Thomas Chichester. “Well-located, single-tenant retail properties like this one don’t come onto the market very often in the area, and this presented an ideal owner-user situation for the buyer. Owning versus renting for small businesses provides a more stable long-term outlook as opposed to renting as rental prices tend to increase over time.”
Built in 1966 and located at 1936 E. Katella Avenue, the property offers high visibility and a large monument sign. It is also near Chapman University and is adjacent to the off/on-ramp of the 55 freeway which sees more than 244,000 vehicles per day.
