Santa Ana, CA - May 17, 2023 - Faris Lee Investments, a leading retail advisory and investment sales firm, recently announced the successful closing of a US Gain Clean Fuel in Santa Ana, CA for $950,000. The transaction was completed with a cap rate of 4.92% and covered a land area of 20,000 square feet.
The property, which consisted of a low ground rent and CPI increase with no caps, provided a safe hedge against inflation for the buyer. Faris Lee Investments represented the Orange County-based seller in the disposition of the bite-sized 10-year absolute triple net (NNN) ground lease.
As part of the marketing strategy, Faris Lee Investments focused on marketing to local and national principals, investors, and small family offices, with particular emphasis on those who owned similar assets in Southern California. The asset was marketed as the lowest-priced 10-year absolute NNN lease in SoCal during the time of marketing, with a strong emphasis on the low cost per square foot on land value and the recent Phase 1 conducted on the site.
The results of the marketing campaign were impressive, generating a total of 13 offers. The winning bid was an all-cash offer with a cap rate of 4.92%, and the transaction closed in a quick 21-day escrow.
