Rainer Properties Shows What Buyers Want In Retail, Offloads 27-Property Portfolio

High demand for single-tenant retailers, fitness centers and discount stores helped Dallas-based Rainier Cos. offload a 27-property retail portfolio this month. 

The company sold 14 properties in Texas along with 13 retail sites in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming to an undisclosed buyer, CBRE reports. 

The portfolio included recession-proof type retailers with the entire portfolio featuring six grocery stores, five home improvement retailers, three auto part stores, three fitness centers, three dollar stores, two U.S. Post Offices, a pharmacy and a gas station.

CBRE's Michael Austry and Jared Aubrey represented the seller. 

“A portfolio this size with steady income and numerous opportunities for rent increases and redevelopment is unheard of in today’s market,” said Austry, a CBRE first vice president. “We saw a tremendous amount of interest in the portfolio from both institutional and private buyers.”

The portfolio maintained a 90%-plus occupancy rate over the past 20 years.
