SSH Real Estate arranges the sale of 180 Gordon Dr. in Exton and forecasts a good 2016
Exton, PA — SSH Real Estate has arranged the sale of 180 Gordon Dr., a 66,755 s/f flex building in Pickering Creek Business Park, for $7.4 million as part of a 1031 exchange. Dan Mayock and Adam Gillespie of SSH Real Estate represented the seller, 180 Gordon Associates, LP. The property was built in 1986 and was 100% leased to 10 tenants at the time of sale. The buyer was attracted by the building’s proximity to the Downingtown Interchange of the PA Turnpike and the stability of the cash flow derived from a diverse mix of tenants.In the past fourteen months in Chester County, SSH Real Estate has sold four investment properties, including 180 Gordon Drive, for a total of $44 million in transaction volume. “We have been seeing investors drawn to Chester County for its stability,” said Mayock. “You have very conservative owners in this market, so you seldom see distress due to overbuilding.” Gillespie added, “Risk-adjusted yields are solid for medium-sized commercial deals in Chester County. We have found a nice balance exists here between buyers’ and sellers’ value expectations – so the market is demonstrating great liquidity.”In a sign of the robust Chester County real estate market, SSH just launched the marketing on the sale of 1025 Andrew Dr. in West Chester. Mayock further hinted that they have as many as seven other medium-sized office and flex buildings in the pipeline for 2016 in Chester County.
