Newport Beach, Calif. (July 14, 2020) – SRS Real Estate Partners’ National Net Lease Group has announced the record-breaking $9.182 million sale of single-tenant, 23,800-square-foot (sf) property occupied by VCA Animal Hospital located at 183 Euclid Street in Fountain Valley, CA. At a closing cap rate 4.75 percent, this sale marks the lowest cap rate ever for a VCA-occupied property nationwide as well as the lowest cap rate ever for a single-tenant net leased veterinary hospital in California per CoStar records.
SRS National Net Lease Group’s Managing Directors Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther, and Executive Vice President Rich Walter, represented the seller, an Orange County-based family trust, as well as the buyer, a Southern California-based private investor. Year to date, SRS has handled the sale of 11 retail transactions valued at $107 million in Orange County including the approximately $45 million sale of a Home Depot-occupied property in Brea.
VCA recently extended its lease for an additional 10 years and this location is one of VCA’s five flagship hospitals for its brand.
“This VCA-occupied asset represented one of the highest quality net lease offerings on market in Southern California over the past few months,” said Mousavi. “Backed by the largest veterinarian hospital operator in North America, the property offered stellar credit, being both COVID and internet resistant, as well as irreplaceable real estate along the 405 freeway, the highest trafficked interstate in Southern California.”
Luther added, “During COVID, we received multiple sub 5 cap offers from both 1031 exchange and non 1031 exchange investors who were private and institutional. We also had several lending options available during this time period. Demand from investors and capital sources remains robust for high quality, Orange County real estate, particularly net lease.”
Built in 1969 and renovated by the tenant in 2017 with $6 million in major building renovations, the property is situated on 2.14 acres and is located on a major thoroughfare just off Interstate 405. This Orange County asset provides a dense population of more than 671,000 residents and nearly 349,000 employees, creating a favorable pet owner customer base for VCA.
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, SRS’ National Net Lease Group (NNLG) has closed 140 transactions valued at $502 million. Additionally, the group has nearly $800 million of assets under LOI or in escrow and $2 billion in assets currently listed for sale. In 2019, the NNLG successfully completed more than 400 transactions in 2019, across 35 states nationwide.
