The opportunity

Faris Lee represented the seller in the transaction and sourced a buyer in a 1031 Exchange from the greater Modesto MSA.

Located at the northeast quadrant of E. Hatch Rd. and Herndon Ave., the highly visible property was under construction at the time of the sale and featured a 15-year absolute triple net (NNN) ground lease with 10% increases every 5 years during the primary term and options to extend.

The team targeted 1031 buyers from the Western States through Faris lee’s 1031 exchange database, highlighting the strength of the credit tenant, the absolute triple net lease, and the low price point. After receiving multiple offers and despite the rising interest rate environment, the property closed at the lowest cap rate nationally for Dutch Bros in 2023, at 4.30%.
