$3 Million Sale of Retail Property in Lake Elsinore

Originally Published: Inland Empire US

Lake Elsinore, CA – SRS Real Estate Partners’ National Net Lease Group has completed the $3.05 million sale of a single-tenant property fully occupied by Del Taco in Lake Elsinore, CA. Located on just under one-half acre of land at 16810 Lakeshore Drive, the freestanding building has 12.5 years remaining on its 1,558-square-foot corporate-guaranteed 15-year absolute triple-net lease. The property sold at a price per square foot of $1,957, which is one of the highest ever for a fast food restaurant property in the Inland Empire, according to CoStar.

SRS’ National Net Lease Group Managing Principals Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther represented the seller, a partnership specializing in the ownership of net lease property. Chris Itule of Itule Real Estate Group represented the all-cash, Southern California buyer.

“SRS received a substantial amount of interest and offers on this asset as its brand, location in a high density area of the Inland Empire and no landlord responsibilities are all factors that net-lease investors are looking for in a single-tenant asset,” said Luther.

Mousavi added, “We’ve successfully transacted over 20 individual Del Taco-leased properties in the last 36 months, with another recent Del Taco sale in Southern California trading at a 3.71 percent cap rate. Investors continue to seek QSR drive-thru properties leased to national brands. In this case, we were able to achieve a record price per square foot of $1,957 for this property, and received multiple offers. Del Taco is a publicly traded company with decades of brand recognition and success, and is well received by the marketplace, particularly with California-based investors.”

Situated along Lakeshore Drive, which sees about 19,000 vehicles per day, the Del Taco restaurant is an outparcel to a shopping center anchored by Albertsons and is also adjacent to a shopping center anchored by Stater Bros. Within a 5-mile radius of the property, there are more than 70,000 residents with an annual average household income of $72,000.

SRS’ National Net Lease Group successfully completed more than 270 sales in 2017; in 2018, the group executed more than 300 transactions across more than 35 states nationwide, and has over $1 billion in assets currently listed for sale.
