Hotel Restaurant Site

I have access to two commercial properties on which two high end shopping centers are going to be constructed.

The two tract are large and the owners have enough acreage to accommodate a full service hotel and a restaurant. My mission is to find qualified buyers who are aspiring to construct a hotel or a restaurant in these two premier areas.  Two tracts are available.  One for a hotel  and one for a restaurant.  No other businesses are available unless your interested in leasing a part of the proposed shopping center.

One is in Cullman with the center including a branch bank.  This site is near the new I65 exit ramp to Smith Lake.  The property is on Highway 69, which is one of the high growth area  of  Cullman.  It is near the huge Wal-Mart distribution center.  Two million dollar restaurants have recently been constructed in the area.

The other is in the City of Madison on Highway 72 West.  This site is also going to be developed into a large shopping center.  This site has one of the highest traffic counts in Madison County. It is also one of the fastest growing areas in Alabama.

Both owners have given me permission to introduce possible purchasers  who will be responsible for my commission if the introduction results in a sale.  My commission is 5% of the sales price.  If the introduction does not result in a sale you do not owe me any thing.

If your working with me results in you purchasing a property which is listed for sale by another agency my commission will be paid by the listing broker.

If you are an investor please check my web site often.  I only place on it investment properties that I consider “trulygoodbuys”.

Cullman, AL

There are 13 improvements on the 18.41 acre tract. The buildings range in age from 10 years to newHardware2. With the exception of mixed use building number one, my inspection leads me to the decision that the buildings have an average overall effective age of 5 years. Mixed use building number one has an effective age of one year. The buildings have a remaining useful life of 35 years. There is no serious deferred maintenance or structural problems with any of the buildings.

The hardware store building is a modern building with metal sides and roof with a brick front. This building is fully air conditioned and is finished inside with finished sheetrock walls and ceiling with a polished concrete floor. The air conditioning is hidden in the attic. Lighting is strip florescent. Windows are fixed plate in a metal grid. The display area is well arranged and clean. There is an office, two restrooms and a break room. Plumbing and electric appears to meet code.

There are three mixed use buildings on the west side of the site. The buildings are dHardware3esigned for office, service or retail. All three buildings are of the same construction. That is metal buildings on a concrete slab with a brick front. Each building is divided into two units with each unit having a separate heat and cooling system and a two fixture restroom. The walls and ceiling are finished sheetrock and lighting is florescent. The floor cover is ceramic tile. The extraordinary assumption is made that the interior of building one and two are finished in a similar manner as building one on which I did an interior inspection. The buildings do not have any deferred maintenance nor is there any evidence of any type of structural problems.

There are five metal sheds that are frame construction with a dirt or gravel floor. These sheds have a total area of 12,855 square feet. The sheds are of various size and shape and serve as storage for lumber and building supplies.

There are also three storage sheds similar to the ones mentioned above but improved with a concrete floor. These shed store items that might be affected by not having a vapor barrier.

Finally, there is a mini warehouse building that has a total area of 2,500 square foot. This building is typical mini construction and appears to be in average condition. It is considered to have an effective age of 5 years.

Overall all of the improvements are considered to be in average condition with normal deferred maintenance and no structural problems.
