CREXi, a commercial real estate marketplace that simplifies transactions for brokers with a suite of easy-to-use tools to manage the entire process from listing to closing, will be facilitating the online auction. Gilezan Global brokered by eXp Realty will serve as the broker of record.
The property was acquired at approximately $3.5 million and was recently appraised at roughly $13 million.
“We are looking forward to selling our Lago Vista property via online auction,” Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of Safe & Green Holdings explained. “We bought the property prior to the massive amount of growth that the greater Austin, Texas, area has seen, and we are confident that the sale price will reflect this sharp increase in value. For the current time being, we will continue to proceed with the development plan as well as short term financing.”
According to the National Association of Realtors, benefits of auction include but are not limited to, assurance that the property will be sold at true market value, exposing the property to a large number of pre-qualified prospects, accelerating the sale, and creating competition amongst buyers.
“This sale will capitalize Safe and Green Development Corporation and allow capital return to our parent company, Safe & Green Holdings Corp.,” Paul Galvin continued. “We believe the growth of the area combined with the change from condo to multi-family rental exemplifies the significant increase in value of this property.”
The current plan entails a Q2 2023 closing. Further information regarding the auction, including the date, will be provided.
