Faris Lee Investments Carries Client through the Downleg & Upleg of a 1031 Exchange

IRVINE, Calif. - April 19, 2022 - Faris Lee Investments is pleased to announce the recent completion of a 1031 exchange for a repeat client based out of the Bay Area.

For the downleg, the listing team represented the client in the sale of a two-tenant pad on a signalized, hard corner with over 43,000 vehicles per day in Chandler, AZ. The property was anchored by a corporate Domino's Pizza alongside a vacant suite. The listing team was able to maximize the sale price for the client by marketing the property with a rent guarantee, allowing the seller to capitalize on the additional net operating income. The team procured an all-cash buyer with investments in the trade area.

During the marketing and escrow period for the sale of the downleg, the Faris Lee team was actively searching for upleg opportunities for the client. Before the close of the downleg, Faris Lee located a value-add center on a signalized, hard corner with over 36,000 VPD in Fair Oaks, CA. The center is anchored by a corporate 7-Eleven alongside two vacant suites. The 7-Eleven has been at this location for over 35 years and is paying roughly 50% below market rent. The property features excellent demographics with over $124,000 of average household income in a one-mile radius and over 107,000 residents in a three-mile radius. During the escrow period, the buyer was able to secure strong leasing momentum on the vacant suites. Faris Lee was able to negotiate a significant price reduction for the client while managing a quick and on-time closing.
