Seven Shopping Centers Sell; The Deal Sheet
Jeans and scarves aren't the only things selling; the shopping centers themselves are being snapped up, too. And UCR SVP Tommy Tucker tells us it's not just the quality product that's moving but also the value-add projects.
In the past month or so, Tommy repped the sellers in seven retail properties across the state totaling 88k SF including: the 29k SF Shops at Carter Ranch neighborhood center and pad site on Preston Road in Celina; the 23k SF Roanoke Center neighborhood center at 611 Dallas Dr in Roanoke; the 11k SF North Main Street Center neighborhood center at 3209 N Main St in Fort Worth; Four other deals including a 7-Eleven ground lease in Richardson; the almost 6k SF Lake June Commons in Balch Springs; an 8k SF O'Reilly and Cashmax in Childress; and an almost 7k SF Hibbett Sports and Cashmax in Athens.
Tommy says there's a pent-up demand for retail, especially the quality product in good locations. Debt is still accessibl e, but prices are getting aggressive. On the other end, the value-add projects with high vacancies are getting a look, too, as investors believe they can get their money back with capital improvements and lease-ups.
