CBRE Facilitates Sale of San Diego Convenience Center for $6.8Million

Sabre Springs Plaza sells for $6.8 million, 5.58% cap rate

San Diego CA— CBRE Vice Chairman Philip D. Voorhees announced today that he and the National Retail Partners-West (NRP-West), along with Reg Kobzi from CBRE San Diego, completed the sale of Sabre Springs Plaza in San Diego, Calif., a 15,038 SF retail convenience center. At the time of sale, the offering was 100-percent leased to a synergistic tenant lineup consisting of 7-Eleven along with 12 other retail, restaurant and service-oriented tenants. The sale price was $6.8 million, representing a 5.58% cap rate.

CBRE retail experts Voorhees, Sean Heitzler, Megan Wood, and Reg Kobzi represented the seller, Capstone Advisors, a San Diego-based real estate investment, management and development firm. The buyer, represented by CBRE Executive Vice President Gary Stache and Kevin Foley, was a Los Angeles-based private investor who purchased Sabre Springs Plaza to complete a 1031 Exchange.

“Sabre Springs is home to internet-resistant tenants providing convenience, value, service and medical uses that have proven highly resistant to internet competition. No single tenant accounts for a significant portion of the income, making this asset very stable and resilient. It’s the perfect 1031 exchange replacement property for leveraged cash-on-cash-focused investor; the exact profile of the Sabre Springs buyer, said Voorhees.”

Stache stated, “The buyer was looking for a well-located investment with stable cash flow and this property fit the bill perfectly.”

In addition to handling the investment sale, Shaun Moothart and Jennifer Ansari with CBRE’s Debt and Structured Finance Team, arranged the 10-year fixed hybrid, 3.85%, loan of $3.3 million for the buyer.

According to Moothart, “Sabre Springs Plaza was a great example of just how competitive debt pricing and terms are for a high-quality, well-located retail asset. Working alongside CBRE’s investment sales teams, this was a great execution for all involved.”

Built in 2004, Sabre Springs Plaza is situated on ±1.35 acres, just east of the I-15 and located at 11385-11395 Poway Road.

“Sabre Springs Plaza’s conventional site plan, hard-corner location and c-store provides daily necessities that cater to the immediate trade area. The wide spread between the cap rate and interest rate yield provided a win-win for both buyer and seller,” said Wood.

According to NRP-West, CBRE’s marketing efforts distributed more than 1,308 offering memoranda and through the team’s “managed bid” offer process, generated 7 offers to purchase Sabre Springs Plaza.

“The strong competition to acquire Sabre Springs Plaza indicates the continued preference to own high-quality, quintessential strip centers throughout Southern California,” said Heitzler.
