PLANS, DESCRIPTION: Stephen Guzman's 41 N. Fort Myers Real Estate Investment LLC purchased a 7,000 square foot retail building near the intersection of Pine Island Road and U.S. 41 for $500,000. The building features a 2,954-square-foot retail showroom, 3,710 square feet of warehouse space and a small office.
Jim Boback of Boback Commercial Group handled the transaction.
Guzman plans to locate his Mobile Home Depot, a mobile-home furnishing, parts and accessories business, in the building.
“What attracted him was the visibility and proximity to the [nearby] Wal-Mart,” Boback says. “That area was an ideal demographic for his end user.”
Guzman's LLC mortgaged the property to Bank of America NA for two mortgages totaling $450,000.
