Capital Square 1031 Takes DST Offering Full-Cycle, Resulting in Nearly 150 Percent Return on Equity to Investors*

May 30, 2019

LOS ANGELES (May 29, 2019) – Capital Square 1031, a leading real estate investment and management firm specializing in Delaware statutory trust (DST) offerings, announced today the sale of a 37,500-square-foot facility in greater Los Angeles that is 100 percent occupied by 24 Hour Fitness. The property was owned by a group of DST investors who realized a 149.49 percent total return on equity, or 12.12 percent annualized return, from their 1031 exchange investment. Total return included the average annual cash distribution rate of 6.46 percent received by investors during their four-year holding period.

The property, which was originally purchased for $16.2 million in May 2015, sold for $20.725 million.

“With the sale of this 24 Hour Fitness facility, Capital Square has taken four DST offerings full-cycle in the last 10 months,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square 1031. “Investors realized a handsome return from both the cash flow and capital appreciation. This sale is a prime example of Capital Square’s ability to acquire, manage and sell high-quality real estate for investors seeking tax-advantaged investments.”

“We are gratified by the results,” said Rogers. “Most of the DST investors are re-investing with Capital Square in a new DST to continue the tax deferral under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code.”

Located at 1530 W. Covina Parkway in West Covina, approximately 19 miles from downtown Los Angeles in the eastern San Gabriel Valley, the property includes a three-level, free-standing parking garage and is situated on 1.6 acres of land. Club amenities include cardio equipment, circuit training a kid’s club, sauna, steam room and lap pool, among others.

Mike Waddell, president of Capital Square 1031, added, “Taking advantage of strong market conditions, we were able to maximize the outcome for investors through a sale of the property that took the DST offering full cycle earlier than planned. With this sale, Capital Square’s transaction volume has increased to $1.3 billion since our founding in late 2012.”

Since inception, Capital Square has acquired 82 properties for approximately 1,600 investors seeking quality replacement properties that qualify for tax deferral under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code.
