Office For Sale

Sacramento Business Journal reports on East West Commercial Real Estate (Sacramento) recent activity in filling the Land Park office building.

As reported by Staff Writer- Sacramento Business Journal.

“A Land Park office building has come a long way from six months ago, when it was about 80 percent vacant. And part of the reason why, said the commercial real estate broker who’s helped fill it, is because it’s not acting like an office building.

With the pending arrival of Streamline Church, the building at 1250 Sutterville Road will be 80 percent full, and the way it has filled up is more reminiscent of a retail property, said Brian Jacks of East West Commercial Real Estate.

When he began looking for tenants earlier this year for the two-story building, a gym seemed like a natural tenant because there weren’t any other workout places nearby. Fitness System, which moved this spring into 17,000 square feet of the building on two floors, was the answer.

But what happened next was unusual, Jacks said. “You have consumers who are attracted to the property, and so it’s attracting tenants who feed off the consumers,” he said. Office tenants aren’t as likely to attract other office tenants based on the amount of traffic they’re getting from customers, but retail tenants are.

While there are still office-based businesses in the building, Streamline Church’s pastors, who’d previously had services at various schools in Sacramento, saw the gym and realized being there could attract potential members to the flock, according to Jacks. Pending city of Sacramento approval for a change of use permit, Streamline will have a five-year lease to occupy 7,600 square feet on the building’s first floor.

“I wasn’t necessarily expecting this to happen,” Jacks said.

There’s still space for it to happen again. At 80 percent leased, the building has about 8,000 available square feet, in spaces ranging from 670 to 2,441 square feet, or with re-configuration, up to 3,500 square feet.”

As reported in a recent article by the Sacramento Business Journal, “a new Brookings Institution study ranked 20 U.S. metro areas by the number of patents per million residents from 2007 through 2011. All, including Sacramento, are home to major research universities.” Clearly, UC Davis has been a major contributing factor to the Sacramento region’s success in this area. While Sacramento barely made the cut at #20 on the list, it proves the region is certainly in the game and ripe for an ever-increasing market share of patents. No surprise to anyone, our nearest competition, San Jose and San Francisco, ranked #1 and #3 with 1,988 and 555 patents, respectively. However, when totaling the patents for all three Northern California cities, it represents over 34% of all patents nationwide.

East West Commercial Real Estate is proud to announce its facilitation of a new 3-year office / special purpose lease for Veritas Church in Roseville, CA, effective July 1, 2012. Veritas has been led by Senior Pastor Erik Meyers for the past four years, since inception in 2008. While Veritas has been blessed with the ability to share space in other non-profit facilities, it has been difficult, but a necessary reality to relocate basically once every year since it all began. Veritas’ most recent facility was subleased from Cornerstone Christian School at 202 Bonita Street in Roseville, CA. At a Veritas Church membership meeting held on the evening of June 3, 2012, a collective sigh of relief was heard as Pastor Erik discussed the new lease opportunity with his congregation… finally, a place of their own.

Remember years ago when homeowners were selling high priced homes in the San Francisco Bay Area and moving in droves to the Sacramento region?  Well, get ready for the next way!

 

A recent Bloomberg article suggests that San Francisco is currently the hottest office market in the country, as indicated by the pending sale of a 10-story office building for $800 per square foot in SOMA (South of Market Area), a submarket where rents are up 22% over the past year.  This would be the City’s highest selling price for an office building since the commercial real estate market peaked in 2007.

 

Follow my logic here… Bay Area jobs are coming back in a big way, led by robust increases in the technology industry. Most of these young workers, in their 20’s and 30’s, are seeking multifamily rental housing.  As a result, rental demand for apartments in cities like San Francisco and San Jose is going through the roof with 2012 forecasted vacancy rates of +/- 3%.  Not surprisingly, Marcus & Millichap reports that San Jose and San Francisco have taken the # 1 and # 2 spots in the National Apartments Index, behind # 3 New York.

 

What follows next?  Well, multifamily property values are on the rise in the Bay Area with compressing investor yields (cap rates), suggesting investors will soon be looking to nearby markets for better investment returns.  Given the Sacramento area was hit so hard with housing foreclosures, many people have been forced to rent apartments, which is driving region-wide multifamily vacancies below 5% in 2012.

 

The number of new multifamily listings for apartments in the greater Sacramento is most certainly on the rise.  Here on the ground, it feels like we may have it bottom late last year in terms of apartments sale price per unit.  Demand should increase from here, along with upward pressure on both rents and sale prices.

 

To give you an idea… an 11 unit REO apartment complex sold in South Sacramento on 6/30/11 for $34,000 per unit to a value add investor at 9.9% cap rate.  The property was 91% vacant at the time and in terrible physical condition.  Over the next six months, the investor rehabbed units, replaced patio decks, painted the entire property, and leased up the 10 vacant units at market rents.

 

After a turnaround period of only six months, this property is now back on the market with an asking price of $67,000 per unit (8.1% cap rate).  Notice this cap rate is even stronger than a recent sale just two blocks away, which closed on 11/1/11, where East West Commercial Real Estate brokered the sale of a stabilized 14-unit apartment property to a foreign investor at 8.5% cap rate ($62,500 per unit).  See video.

 

All signs are positive that Sacramento has entered a period of slow steady growth with support from nearby Bay Area influences.  Now is a great time to consider investing in multifamily housing and apartments for sale while prices are still attractive.

 

For more information, contact Brian Jacks (916) 837-3456, Vice President and Northern California Regional Director for East West Commercial.  Brian specializes in investment sales for multifamily housing and apartments throughout the greater Sacramento area.  He is also proud to announce the addition of several new commercial real estate agents in the Bay Area, serving commercial and multifamily investors, landlords and tenants in the cities of San Francisco, Walnut Creek and San Jose.

Sacramento, CA – As one of the hardest hit regions in the country, due the housing meltdown, Sacramento area apartment owners have been welcoming displaced homeowners in droves.  Apartment communities have long been the safest commercial real estate investment class, since people always need a place to live no matter how bad the economy…. but consider this next fact for even more emphasis.  As of 3Q11, Sacramento metro vacancies were reported at 12.4% (retail), 12.9% (industrial), and 19.8% (office).  On the other hand, Sacramento metro apartments were reported at only 5.4% vacancy during the same period… after falling from 7.1% a year prior (3Q10).  Plus, due to the compressing vacancy rates, apartment owners have been able to increase rents an average of 2.2% over the past year.  With all this positive news, which asset class would you prefer to own right now?

On top of all this great news, would you believe the median price of apartment properties in the Sacramento metro area has decreased by 22% over the past 12 months?  This is directly attributed to the surge of distressed REO apartments flooding the market by struggling banks trying to unload non-performing assets.  Increased availability of apartment properties has pushed cap rates up to the mid-7% range for apartments totaling less than 50 units in high-density neighborhoods.  Higher quality apartments with units in suburban communities totaling more than 50 units are selling in the range of 6% cap rates, while lower quality apartments in less densely populated areas can sell for as high as 8.5% cap rates or more.The availability of Sacramento apartment financing has improved dramatically, as indicated by a 40% increase in new apartment loans funded during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2011 (as compared to the prior period).  This improved accessibility of apartment mortgage capital has been encouraged by higher occupancy levels and strong rent growth, resulting in origination gains by nearly all lending sources.Bottom line… it’s a great time to become an investor in Sacramento apartments or add to your holdings.  Immediate cash flow, plus the opportunity for real property appreciation once the market fully improves.  Don’t delay.  Buy apartments for sale in Sacramento right now!

East West Commercial Real Estate is pleased to announce that Ryan Misaresh, LEED AP represented LD Entertainment in the lease of Class A office at Mani Brothers’ 9000 Sunset building in West Hollywood. LD leased 6,878 square feet, in a four year deal, which represents nearly a full floor of the building. After undergoing a recent full remodel, 9000 Sunset is positioned as one of the premier entertainment office buildings in the “Entertainment Capital of the World.”  Possessing a strong understanding of LD Entertainment’s needs and dynamic business model was essential in finding the proper fit for this rapidly growing production and distribution company, whose recent releases include the blockbuster action film “The Grey” with Liam Neeson, as well as “Biutiful,” “I Love You Philip Morris,” and “The Collector.”

This top rate space with sweeping 270 degree views of the Los Angeles basin was a match made in heaven between LD’s rise to prominence which now warrants  a top rate office environment, and a landlord in a position to provide it, with minimal TI’s, in the heart of the creative capitol of the world.

Built in 1963 and featuring 144,802 square feet, 9000 Sunset is owned and managed by Mani Brothers and was represented by Greg Camacho of Camacho Commercial.
