A Melbourne syndicate of private investors has divested its Jeep car dealership site in Caroline Springs, selling to a private investor from Ballarat for $6.05 million.

The 2,091sqm strata site is currently leased to a local Jeep franchisee with five years remaining on the lease term; the lease returns $501,000 annually.

CBRE Selling Agent Dylan Kilner noted that the buyer’s confidence had been underpinned by the catchment’s strong population growth and continued demand for retail space.

The property’s City of Melton location has been identified as one of the fastest growing corridors in Australia, with the population having increased by 72% to 150,000 residents over the past 10 years.

“Private investors are recognising the value of commercial property offering fixed term leases of five to 20-years and, in many cases, are viewing this style of asset as a more secure alternative to residential property investments.” CBRE selling agent Joseph Du Rieu commented.

Mr Du Rieu and Mr Kilner handled the sale with colleagues Kevin Tong and Rorey James.

Mr Peluso commented on the sale, stating that “demand for healthcare investments continues to reach new heights, particularly for assets at a price point that is feasible to owner occupiers. Buyers are similarly recognising the importance of securing a location with either an existing medical permit or a property in which the floorplan and parking will allow for the attainment of one.”
