Newmark announces it has completed the $6.5 million sale of a single-tenant net leased Ashley HomeStore in Farmington, New Mexico. The property traded from Johnston Real Estate Farmington, LLC, a private real estate investor, to an undisclosed public REIT. Newmark’s Net Lease Capital Markets group comprising Vice Chairman Matt Berres, Director Samer Khalil and Associate Karick Brown represented the seller in cooperation with John Ransom of Colliers.
Ashley HomeStore is the largest retail furniture store brand in North America and one of the world’s best-selling furniture store brands with more than 2,000 locations in 60 countries. The property is under a long-term passive double net lease to the retailer.
“With interest rates continuing to rise, we are seeing select big box tenants becoming increasingly attractive to net lease investors given the compelling risk-adjusted returns,” said Berres.
Located at 5200 E. Main Street in Farmington, the property is situated along E. Main Street and Highway 516, the major retail and commuter thoroughfare in the area, which sees an average of 33,849 vehicles per day.
