Matthew Pierce, an investment specialist in Marcus & Millichap’s Boston office, had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a limited liability company. The buyer, a private investor, was also secured by Pierce. 

The properties are located at 118 and 275 Main St. The mixed-use buildings are comprised of a total of 40 units, including 31 apartments and nine retail units. The town is a medium sized community located in central Mass. on the Conn. border.

“Due to compressed cap rates near core-Boston, we were able to find a buyer that was looking for a value-add investment with double-digit returns in a rental market that is pretty consistent during market fluctuation.” Pierce said. “The seller, who owned and operated the property for over 40 years, was looking to exchange into a more passive investment and move more towards retiring and away from the management piece of the business.” 

Pierce worked with Adam Cohen, of the Marcus & Millichap Retail Group, on the up-leg exchange into two triple-net retail properties.
