7 Eleven With Attached Citgo Gas Station – Case Study

Dec 21, 2017

Commercial properties are a hot market, and getting in a deal can be scary. This is why the team here at Westwood takes extra care with buyers and sellers alike.

We’ve moved hundreds of properties and in every single one of them, both the buyer and the seller are extremely happy with the deal.

Here’s an in-depth view of how one commercial property in St. Louis area changed owners.

You can see how the entire process looks like, from initial contact to gathering all details, documents, and how the deal was sealed.

This case study will show you how Westwood Net Lease Advisors helped a client buy a commercial real estate property in use by 7- eleven and Citgo gas station.


A client has contacted Westwood Net Lease Advisors using the online free consultation form on our website. He requested information about buying a real estate property in Saint Louis County area, preferably with an active lease with long-term tenants.

Our real estate broker Jeff Gitt was working with the client and presented several very interesting locations to choose from. The client was mostly interested in one location as it was in use by 7-Eleven and Citgo Gas. Both tenants were on that location for over 12 years, which was very interesting for the buyer.

Several other features made this specific real estate property very interesting for the buyer:

  • Nearby buildings – Two shopping centers; McDonald’s and a large bank (and many apartment complexes)
  • Lease term – 4 years
  • Lease type – NNN lease
  • Lease commenced – 2004
  • Building size(SF) – 2200
  • General condition and demographics – Excellent
  • Estimated value – $ 1,8 50,000
  • Net Operating Income – $ 120,000

Jeff spoke to the client several times and worked out a time to meet face to face to go over the details that would make the offer even better for the buyer.

Since the seller was interested in selling the property faster Jeff was able to close the gap between the asking price and the buyer’s budget.

The deal was sealed at $1.6M, and both the seller and the buyer were pleased with the price.
