Commercial property investors have snapped up more than $90 million worth of refurbished 7-Eleven service stations across NSW and Victoria since the retail group began auctioning them off earlier this year.

The stores, which all come with 15-year leases and guaranteed tenant income, have been sold to investors with prices ranging from $1.6 million for a 1,900-square-metre service station in Bayswater East in Melbourne to up to $4.6 million for a 2,824-square-metre site in Turramurra.

Yields have ranging from 4.6% to as high 8.5%.

Currently, just one refurbished 7-Eleven remains up for sale, a 2,500-square-metre site at Mount Druitt site in Sydney’s outer west, which has annual income of $316,000 and is being marketed by Charles Gonzalez of Burgess Rawson.

However, investors with an eye for these colourful assets should not despair. Jones Lang LaSalle’s John Macree, who led the most recent campaign culminating in 10 sales of 7-Elevens at auction in NSW, says the property group is working with 7-Eleven to prepare further properties for sale in 2012.
