Deal of the Week (3/27)

Irvine, Calif.-based Faris Lee Investments completed the sale of a 24,250-square-foot portion of Trabuco Hills Shopping Center for $14.4 million in Mission Viejo, Calif.

Dennis Vaccaro, senior managing director, and Richard Walter, president, of Faris Lee Investments, represented the seller, Pacific Castle Props I LLC. The 1031 exchange buyer was Trabuco Hills Pads LLC. The property is 18 years old and is 98 percent leased. The sale included Walgreens, Claim Jumper and Ramona Tire.

“The pads at Trabuco Hills Shopping Center provided the investor with a unique opportunity to acquire single-tenant properties within an irreplaceable South Orange County retail property with an excellent tenant roster, below market assumable debt and long-term stability within a high income demographic area,” said Vaccaro, in a statement.

Faris Lee Capital, an in-house team of senior financing experts, worked with the seller to arrange an in-place loan for the properties a year ago. This allowed the buyer to take advantage of below market in-place debt with an interest rate fixed at 5.7 percent with full-term interest only payments. Faris Lee Capital also managed the debt assumption process between the buyer, seller and lender to successfully close the deal.
