Las Vegas Resort Hotel Casinos For Sale II

A couple of years ago, I blogged that there were a few Resort Hotel Casino Properties For Sale. Now, I want to update you on this: There are Three For Sale and they are true Resort Hotel Casino Properties.

So, IF you have the prerequisite amount of money or financial capacity -- which means you are capable of paying $250 Million or more for a Resort Casino Hotel property -- send me an email with the proof of capacity. I will then reply with a Non-Circumvent, Confidentiality and Commission Agreement for your company's Authorized Officer's signature.

Once this Agreement is executed, I will then supply you the detailed information on the Resort Hotel Casino Property that "fits" your financial capacity and investment criteria.

The form can be down loaded from the column in the right under Las Vegas Casino Information.

8% or Higher Cap Rates In Las Vegas? Sorry, Cap Rates are actually Going Down!

Last June 2014, I wrote this blog because I was being called by "out of state" investors wanting to acquire Las Vegas CRE at an 8% Cap Rate or better -- as one investor told me.

Well, it's been a year now and the Cap rates have actually 'Gone Down!'

This means, that the prices of CRE in Las Vegas are getting higher -- and other investors are buying these properties.

So, once again, I feel I have to re-address the issue:

For several years months now, I have been working with a couple of Buyers who are still searching the Las Vegas Valley for an 8% Cap Rate.

Unfortunately, for them, they are ALL gone.

The 8% Cap Rates went away about two a years ago when Owners began to realize they were getting multiple offers for their property and/or they no longer "needed" to sell.

But, Not all properties are in such a rosie position.  Several Owners that I know are still struggling to make their loan payments and are still upside down at the end of the month.

But, when you come to Las Vegas expecting a steal, and you find out that a 7.5% Cap Rate is the best you are going to do, then, you shouldn't be wasting my RE Broker's time.

Walgreen's across the US are going for +/-5.5% Cap Rate.  Here in Las Vegas you might be the high bidder at a 6.75% Cap Rate.  But, IF you think an 8% Cap Rate should do, you will be out of luck.  There are no Walgreen's in Las Vegas selling for an 8% Cap Rate.  AND, you are foolish to be thinking that for any property in Las Vegas right now.

IF you are truly interested in acquiring a Las Vegas NNN investment, then contact me and we'll start the search.  But, 7 or 7.5% is going to be the the best sales price.

"There's nothing around it! The tenant is going to fail!"

Two weeks ago, I had a California Buyer who made an offer for a property with a fast food restaurant that was located just off I-215 on Jones Blvd.
It sits in an area between where there are a lot of office warehouse buildings and well built up neighborhood of SFRs.
And, there is a lot of vacant land in this area and most of it is owned by McCarran International Airport.
Now, Jones to and from the I-215 is a very, very busy street as it is the easiest way for workers who live in the neighborhood to the south to travel to work either on the 'Strip,' or to a business that is located near the 'Strip.'
The Buyer and Seller agree on a sales price. We open escrow. Then, -- not more than one hour AFTER opening escrow -- the Buyer calls me to demand I cancel escrow!  What?! Huh?! Ok.
It took me a week, but I finally found out that "a friend" of the Buyer had told him he had "looked" at an aerial map of the area and he determined that there was "nothing around the property but vacant land" so that meant to the friend "that the fast food restaurant was going to fail."
Apparently, this "friend" knows nothing to very little about Las Vegas.  BUT, his influence was great over the Buyer.
Since canceling Escrow, the property -- which had a lot of interest in it has SOLD to a Real Estate Broker, who flipped the property to another California investor.  The Broker acquired the property for $5.3 Million.  And, an hour after he closed escrow buying the property, he closes his second escrow to the investors for $5.8 Million.  Today, as I write this, is a Thursday two weeks before Christmas and I am still baffled that someone with little or no knowledge of a city or town in another state could have so much influence over a Buyer.
Even after I went over all of the "friends" objections with the Buyer, he wasn't going to go against his "friend."
Yes! This is absolutely absurd!
You see, the reason the fast food restaurant was placed there in the first place was because there is a severe lack of fast food in this area.  There are numerous businesses in this area that their employees had to -- and still do -- go OUT of the area to eat lunch, etc.  In other words, there is plenty of "Rooftops" and "Traffic" to support this fast food restaurant.
And, with McCarran International Airport owning most of the land, and with the recent economic meltdown developers have been hesitant to lease the land and build more buildings.  (This will iron out eventually.)
But a national fast food chain will be able to survive here because it is the only fast food in the area.
So, "friends" please keep your big, uneducated opinions to yourself.  Otherwise, you will cost your Buyer friend an opportunity to make money from a well placed National Credit Tenant NNN investment.
