A standalone Coles supermarket, in the bayside suburb of MENTONE, has sold on the tightest Victorian yield of 2019.

Located at 81 MENTONE Parade, the recently refurbished property comprises a freestanding 2,854 square metre supermarket, with access to just over 150 council car spaces.

The standalone Coles supermarket sold for $15.3 million on a 3.4 per cent yield, the best vendor yield since Coles Clayton sold on a 2.57 per cent yield in March 2018.

The property was sold under a 10 year lease from January 2017, with a further 10 year option, to Coles at a current rental of $519,785 per annum net.

CBRE Director Mark Wizel, who managed the sale campaign with Justin Dowers and Joseph Du Rieu, said enquiry had been `through the roof’ with two Chinese investors - one the eventual purchaser - flying in for the auction.

Mr Wizel said the last three bidders – all Chinese – who took the bidding from $12 million to the close, were introduced through CBRE’s Asian Services Desk headed by Lewis Tong.

"This year we have seen yields hover around 5.5 per cent following an average closer to 4.5 per cent over 2018 but this result unambiguously indicates demand for this product remains very strong,’’ Mr Wizel said.
