Argus Broker Affiliate Announces Oregon Self Storage Sale

Medford, OR, December 05, 2018 --( Argus Broker Affiliate Scott King of Merit Commercial Real Estate in Medford, OR is pleased to announce the sale of Bear Creek Mini Storage located in Talent, OR. The 26,300 SF property sold on November 15, 2018 for $2,780,000. This sale was unique in that the seller had purchased the facility in 2016 while it was non-operational due to a failure of management and deterioration of the facility. The sellers physically upgraded the facility to introduce current technology, and then leased up the facility with the intent to divest after full absorption. The lack of historical performance made underwriting quite involved in that current rent rolls, buyer’s experience, facility condition, and the local market/competition became more important during the underwriting process.

Seller Richard Halpin remarked, “it took a patient buyer, experienced realtors, and a local lender’s experience to get this deal done.” Listing Broker Scott King noted that “each storage transaction is different and this one was a challenge on many fronts. I look forward to watching the new owner thrive in this local market.”
