HOUSTON – Feb. 10, 2016 – Ten-X (formerly Auction.com), the nation’s leading online real estate marketplace, announces the closing of Lighthouse Plaza, a 10,600-square-foot retail strip center in Houston that sold on the Auction.com platform for $2.245 million.
The 2013-built, 100-percent occupied center was purchased by a local individual investor. The seller was a local LLC — a first-time user of the platform. The two-day online auction event attracted 11 fully approved and registered bidders with five bidders placing live bids. The transaction was brokered by Saqib Ali of Champions Real Estate, who worked with Austin-based Ten-X Business Development Executive Alexander Lavell.
“The successful sale of Lighthouse Plaza in Houston demonstrates how Ten-X delivers what buyers, sellers and brokers need to be successful in today’s commercial real estate market,” said Gordon Smith, general manager of Ten-X’s commercial real estate division. “Our ability to provide direct access to data-driven intelligence, a simplified transaction process and a proven platform that ensures secure online transactions empowers people to confidently transact real estate online.”
Located at 8245 Mills Road, Lighthouse Plaza is a single-building structure that benefits from a strong location on the corner of two major Houston thoroughfares in Harris County. Local tenants currently occupy the fully leased asset.
“The Houston retail market is hot and Lighthouse Plaza was a great asset to feature on our platform as a stabilized, cash flowing property in a thriving area,” Smith said.
