IRVINE, CAHanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, one of the most dominant retail investment groups in the western United States and a market leader in the sale of retail properties, announced today the sale of a single-tenant AutoZone in Palm Springs, Calif. The buyer, a private investor from Irvine, Calif., was represented by Patrick G. Kent of Hanley Investment Group. The seller, a real estate investment company based in Yorba Linda, Calif., was represented by Hanley Investment Group's Eric P. Wohl. The purchase price was $2,335,000.

Located at 1717 East Vista Chino in Palm Springs, the 5,400-square-foot AutoZone is situated on 1.50 acres and was built in 1980. The buyer was in a 1031 exchange and closed all cash in 30 days.

"The buyer was looking for stable and reliable income with minimal management for a long-term hold. The investment featured a 10-year lease at one of the most highly-travelled intersections in Palm Springs," said Patrick G. Kent, senior vice president of Hanley Investment Group. "The sale continues to show the demand for well-located single-tenant NNN investments in today's market."

"This transaction marks one of the lowest cap rates for a single-tenant AutoZone in the western United States, due to a long-term corporate guarantee on the lease and the property being located in front of a grocery-anchored shopping center," said Eric P. Wohl, president of Hanley Investment Group’s NNN division.
