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.
