JULY 2023, SALISBURY, MD – The McClellan Team with SVN | Miller Commercial Real Estate recently sold 1315 S Salisbury Boulevard in Salisbury, MD. The team worked with Howard Properties to sell the former Parties Etc. property, located just across from Salisbury University. After many years of hassle-free ownership, they ultimately decided to sell once their long-term tenant elected to sell their business and vacate the property.

Many clients’ own income-producing real estate and are seemingly content with an on-time rent payment. The McClellan Team stresses the importance of not just collecting rent, but also reviewing the return that rent is providing on the actual building equity. In an ever-changing market, the most successful investors make this a regular practice.

The team listed both the South Salisbury property and another Fruitland warehouse for sale. They generated multiple offers on both and then worked with the owner to secure viable properties which could be acquired using the provisions of a 1031 exchange. This allowed ownership to defer some significant capital gains taxes.

The team’s efforts resulted in him diversifying his investments from two properties to now owning four properties consisting of 2 office buildings and 2 residential properties. Most importantly, ownership increased its overall operating income by over 25%.

“We were pleased to be able to secure multiple, quality investments together with professional property management allowing him to remain a relatively passive landlord.” Said McClellan.
Mr. Howard said, “I appreciate all of John’s time and efforts in selling my properties followed by his guidance and expertise in finding and negotiating the purchase of my exchange properties. John was available and assisted every step of the way and he truly helped me understand and walk through the entire process of both my dispositions and acquisitions.”
