Read Our Success Story On This Property:
After an Ann Arbor property owner’s daughters graduated from the University of Michigan, he no longer needed the two rental houses he had purchased to house them during their studies. He called on the Campus Property Investments Team at the Thomas Duke Company to list the properties for sale. When he called, the new leasing year had already begun, so the owner needed to sell the properties quickly and with little disturbance to the current tenants. Through our extensive network of contacts and our expertise in the student housing sector, we were able to locate a buyer and bring an offer to the seller before the listing hit the open market. The selling process was going so smoothly, in fact, that the owner decided to sell his third and final property to the buyer—and the incorporation of that property didn’t slow the closing process. We were able to close on all three properties within the same time frame. The seller not only earned a healthy return on his investment; he also achieved his goal of exiting the student housing market. If you have properties to sell and would like the process to go smoothly, we can help. Contact us for an evaluation and a conversation.

700 Packard St

Read Our Success Story On This Property:
It was a deal as easy as pie. Pizza pie, that is. After thirty years in business, the owners of Bell’s Pizza in Ann Arbor were ready to sell their property and enjoy retirement and relaxation. With an easy walk to campus, the 700 Packard Street location was an Investor’s sweet spot. Thomas Duke Company associates, Bill McLeod and Jim Porth reached into the deep file of market knowledge they have acquired through years of experience and quickly matched the Seller with a cash buyer. He was willing to pay an eye-opening $466 per square foot and the property never even appeared on the open market. The average price per square foot for retail buildings are currently selling for $200 per square foot in the Ann Arbor area. The proximity of the location to U of M campus area was a huge driving factor on price thus proving that your building could demand to be worth well more than current market rates. If you’re thinking about buying or selling commercial property, you want confidence that experienced and market-wise agents will be able to maximize your returns. Please contact Bill McLeod or Jim Porth on how they can help you meet your real estate goals.
