Rancho Cucamonga, CA – August 22, 2016 – Progressive Real Estate Partners and SRS Real Estate Partners announced today the sale of a 127,000 square-foot former Walmart building for $4,050,000 in an all cash transaction.  The building is located at 2560 North Perris Boulevard in Perris, CA and is also part of the well-established 292,000 square-foot Spectrum Shopping Center which includes Cardenas, Dollar Tree, Wells Fargo Bank, Verizon, Taco Bell and Payless ShoeSource.

Investment sales experts Greg Bedell and Paul Galmarini of Progressive Real Estate Partners and Townsand Cropsey of SRS Real Estate Partners exclusively marketed the property and represented the seller, a Santa Monica–based private investment firm.  The buyer, a private California investor, was represented by Drew Wetherholt of Marcus & Millichap in Ontario, CA.

Built in 1991, the 127,000 square-foot retail building is easily divisible, has excellent pylon signage and ample parking with approximately 750 parking spaces.  The building is zoned community commercial allowing for a variety of retail uses which was a key selling point.  Located off the 215 freeway at the signalized intersection of N. Perris Boulevard and Orange Avenue, the Spectrum Shopping Center is on a major retail thoroughfare with excellent visibility to 34,000 cars per day.   The property is also directly adjacent to the proposed 1800-unit Harvest Landing residential community and a 228-unit apartment complex.

“Prior to placing the building on the market, we were able to generate significant pre-leasing interest from multiple national retailers making it a particularly attractive investment opportunity, especially in a market where there is limited new ground-up construction.  As a result we were able to sell the property at a price that was 22% more than what our client had paid for it approximately 6 months prior,”  according to Greg Bedell, Investment Sales Specialist at Progressive Real Estate Partners.   “Furthermore we had multiple offers and were able to execute a non-contingent contract with a 10-day close.  With historically low interest rates and rising values, demand remains strong for well-located retail properties in Southern California’s Inland Empire market,” he added.
