The Woolworths supermarket at Dural sold under the hammer for $19.65 million at Burgess Rawson's 100th portfolio auction.

It was bought by a local investor who shops at the store.

The 508 Old Northern Road store is currently on a 20-year lease to 2023 with options to 2053.

Located in Sydney's north Western growth corridor, the supermarket is spread across 4,356 square metres. 

Its annual rent is $1,102,900, reflecting a yield of about 5.6 percent.

It was expected to sell circa $17,000,000.

It has 200 car parks.

The tenant pays all outgoings, including land tax as per lease.

The property was sold through Graeme Watson and Simon Staddon.

The agents noted this was a supermarket on an "old fashioned net lease," with the tenant paying outgoings that neither Coles nor Woolworths no longer agree to.

It was marketed as presenting not only as a rare investment opportunity but also a secure one.

Set 32 km from the centre of Sydney, it adjoins Dural Mall, a shopping centre with numerous specialty shops, all adding to Dural’s strong overall customer draw.

The Burgess Rawson agents fielded more than 100 inquiries leading up to the auction. The vendor was a Melbourne private investor who sold the Dural property for "family reasons."

Burgess Rawson is a leading investment sales specialist, pioneers of the portfolio auction system, which celebrated its 100th auction this October.

Beginning in 1975, Burgess Rawson established a nationwide network of offices and is Australia's largest locally owned and operated commercial property agency, marketing more than 10,000 properties and generating sales in excess of $25 billion over the past 40 years.
