US Hwy 19

18538 – 18562 U.S. Highway 19, Clearwater, FL, 33764



Property Overview:

US19 is the main arterial road that runs north-south through Pinellas Park and Clearwater (Tampa Bay Area).

This property previously had very good frontage to US19, but a major road construction project to create a flyover to eliminate an intersection (see far right image above) has decreased both its accessibility and visibility from the road, as access is now only possible via an off ramp.

Nonetheless, the position is still desirable but the usage has changed from mainly retail to mainly industrial, and hence the possible rents have fallen too. Furthermore, it may be difficult to fully stabilise the site until the disruption from the construction ends (estimated to be mid 2015).

However, at an acquisition price of $25.89 per square foot – estimated at less than a third of replacement cost – a cheaper rent can be offered and good cash flow still obtained. The $400,000 purchase price equals independent valuation, but is $595,000 less than asking price (which was revised down from an initial $1,795,000).

There are three buildings on site: 8,000 square foot; 7,250 square foot and 16,720 square foot. These are separated into multiple tenant spaces of different sizes.

Further Notes:

Currency: All numbers are shown in USD. Returns shown have not been translated into Australian dollars as the exchange rate varies. A AUD:USD exchange rate below AUD1:USD1 will increase the percentage return. A AUD:USD exchange rate in excess of AUD1:USD1 will decrease the return.

Management costs: Returns shown above include US management costs, but exclude the management fee charged by the Responsible Entity (1.98% per annum of Gross Assets).

Returns: Returns prior to the property being stabilized are expected to be lower than those forecast above as once off due diligence costs are absorbed, and as less income is received from vacancies as at purchase date. Unless otherwise noted, properties are expected to be stabilized within 12 months of acquisition.
