Malibu Village recently sold for reported $120 million

Commercial real estate can present exciting opportunities but should always be carefully considered. One of nearby Malibu's biggest shopping centers, Malibu Village, was recently sold. A real estate investment firm from out-of-state, with a presence elsewhere in California, recently purchased the 50,000 square foot outdoor mall from southern California investors. Although the sale price and other terms of the deal were not released, those familiar with the commercial property market valued the deal at $120 million. The COO for the purchasing company noted it is focused on growth and "looking for more opportunities for long-term investment in Southern California." The purchasing company plans to try to attract more local shops and restaurants as tenants but does not plan any other changes. The 50,000 square foot property is ninety percent leased.
