Harlem: Steve Sold on 139th Street, Doubled his Cash Flow, and Reduced Management… How?

4/4/2017

“It is my pleasure to acknowledge Joe Koicim, Peter Von Der Ahe, and Seth Glasser on their selling of my buildings on 139th Street in Harlem. Not only do I commend their ability to execute the objective in selling our assets, through their extended team, they were able to locate Triple-Net (NNN) buildings which allowed me to do a 1031 exchange and increase my cash flow significantly. Without hesitation I recommend them and keep them in the highest regard.”
– Steve, Former Owner of 515 & 526 West 139th Street

THE OPPORTUNITY

The ownership of these two Harlem buildings on 139th Street had three clear and specific goals: 1.) Dissolve the partnership so the Principals could go their separate ways on their next investment 2.) Sell for the highest price possible and 3.) Reinvest the proceeds in a management free triple net asset which would increase their cash flow.

I can recall a time when Rose, an elderly widow, forced me to price her $30 million Brooklyn portfolio 25% over market, saying, “Sometimes you got to ask a lot… just to get a little.”  This was a strategic mistake.  Why?  Although it is counter-intuitive, sometimes, the lower your asking price, the higher your selling price.

New York’s real estate market beats to an entirely different rhythm to any other in the world. Here, we have everything; fast-paced transactions with property which changes hands rapidly sitting next to ancient buildings which have been held by the same families for generations.
