Los Angeles, Calif. – June 29, 2018 – Matthews Real Estate Investment Services™ is pleased to announce $54.5 million of commercial retail transactions in one of Orange County’s thriving suburban neighborhoods, Yorba Linda, CA. Executive Vice President & National Director of Shopping Centers, El Warner and Shopping Center specialist Jordan Gomez of Matthews Real Estate Investment Services™, represented owners of multiple trophy assets in four separate transactions within the last nine months.

Savi Ranch Center, a 160,773 sf shopping center located at the prime intersection of Yorba Linda Blvd and Savi Ranch Parkway that includes a Dick’s Sporting Goods, Bed Bath & Beyond and Michaels, sold for $32.5 million. The buyer was a local group who liked the property’s proximity to their home and did a cash-out refinance of their existing portfolio in order to buy the asset and increase their cash flow.

Located adjacent, a 25,074 sf Buy Buy Baby also sold for $6.3 million, achieving a national cap rate record for the chain of 5.85%, according to CoStar.

The center’s Best Buy was purchased by a foreign buyer for $10.2 million at a 6.07% cap rate, a record in California since 2016, according to CoStar.

The free-standing La-Z-Boy, a 18,630 sf parcel, closed for $5.4 million within two weeks of going on the market to an investor who was seeking a single tenant asset for stable cash flow and ease of management.

“These transactions continue to show the strength of retail as an investment within certain markets,” said Warner.  “The record-breaking prices we achieved is a result of our expertise in Southern California and our ability to source the right buyers.”
