Hanley Investment Group Arranges Sales of Eight Single-Tenant Louetta Automotive and Tire Service Investments in Texas for $21 Million

CORONA DEL MAR, Calif. – Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that the firm has arranged the sales of eight single-tenant, net-leased investments occupied by Louetta Automotive and Tire Service in the Houston metro area, Texas. Louetta Automotive is now operating as Sun Auto Tire & Service, backed by private equity firm Leonard Green & Partners. The individual sales were completed in a nine-month period for a combined total value of $20,712,000.

“We maximized value by selling each of the eight locations to eight separate private investors. We procured multiple offers for each of these well-located properties and most of them were sold to out-of-state 1031 exchange buyers who were willing to pay a premium for a new long-term, absolute triple-net lease,” said Jeff Lefko, executive vice president, Hanley Investment Group.

“By selling the locations individually versus as a whole, we achieved 50 basis points lower cap rate while giving the seller flexibility in finding upleg 1031 exchanges,” Lefko said. “In today’s market, where supply is extremely limited, it is beneficial for a seller to have multiple exchanges that they can close at their leisure as opposed to one big exchange where properties have to be identified 45 days after large disposition occurs.”

Lefko continues, “There are many occasions where a multi-unit retailer owns their own real estate and sells their business to a larger (better credit) operator and, as part of the transaction, the retailer gets to keep the real estate with a new long-term lease in place (with the larger operator). In this type of situation, the real estate is often at its peak value the day the business transaction closes. We have figured out the best way help these owners accomplish their goals by maximizing value on certain locations that should be sold while advising which locations are best to keep in the owner’s portfolio as a long-term hold. The Louetta sales are a good example of this.”
