    Multifamily deals in Garden Grove land $3.3 million

    Pivoting west to Garden Grove, two small rental properties recently sold for a combined $3.3 million, according to CBRE.

    The properties sold to separate unidentified buyers.

    The first building at 10772 Palma Vista Ave. sold for $1.87 million or $233,125 per unit. The buyer of the 62-year-old building was identified as an investor from Los Angeles County; the seller was based in San Diego County.

    The two-story, 4,864-square-foot building completed in 1961 has eight one-bedroom units.

    CBRE said it generated multiple offers and went “non-contingent on day one.”

    The investor who bought 10772 Palma Vista Avenue “was a repeat client with a track record of purchasing several assets within Orange County and Southern California,” according to Dan Blackwell at CBRE.

    In the second transaction, a six-unit property — across the street from the first property — at 10761 Palma Vista Ave. sold for $1.44 million. That’s $240,000 per unit.

    The two-story, 5,320-square-foot building also was completed in 1961 and has all one-bedroom units.

    The seller was based in Orange County, and the buyer was a repeat client of CBRE’s from Newport Beach.

    An 80-year ground lease for Nohl Plaza in Orange sold for $25.3 million, according to Institutional Property Advisors.

    The new ground interest lease owner, Regency Centers, is looking to upgrade the 103,639-square-foot Vons-anchored shopping center, IPA said.

    The company bought the lease from a family trust.

    “Having purchased the property in 1989, the sale of this generational asset was emotional for the sellers, but they are thrilled with the exceptional price and … the buyer,” said Tom Lagos, IPA executive director. “Regency saw an opportunity to upgrade the property, fine-tune the tenant mix and utilize its unique approach to operating grocer-anchored shopping centers to enhance the customer experience.”

    The shopping center is at the intersection of Lincoln Avenue and Tustin St. and was built between 1966 and 1979 on 10-plus acres. The tenants include Starbucks, Del Taco, Bank of America, the Tartan Room restaurant and a Union 76 gas station.

    “This sale represents a trend we’re seeing where demand for high-quality retail properties on the West Coast is sustaining strong values despite rising interest rates,” said Patrick Toomey at IPA, a division of Marcus & Millichap. “This trend, also known as a scarcity premium, will hold until supply meets demand.”
