Faris Lee Arranges $11M Smart & Final Acquisition

Orange County-based Faris Lee Investments has arranged the $11 million sale of a 26,000-square-foot single-tenant building leased to Smart & Final in Bakersfield, CA. The firm’s Sean Cox and Alex Moore represented the seller, a Southern California private investor.

The property is located at 1725 Golden State Ave., the main thoroughfare between Highway 99 and Highway 178. Smart & Final has a long-term, absolute triple-net-lease with rental increases, providing investors long term stability, a growing cash flow and a hedge against inflation.

“Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic we have seen a large increase in net-lease investor demand for strong credit grocery stores and other essential business tenants,” said Moore in a news release.
