LAW FIRM ON DEED: Edward R. Rumin Attorney at Law, Fort Lauderdale

James Elmore of Bradenton purchased a 10,440-square-foot unnamed strip center for $1.05 million.

The price equated to $101 per square foot. That figure is less than the two-year average price per square foot for retail space ($129) in the Tampa Bay area, according to the CoStar Group.

Built in 1960, the retail strip center is fully leased. Tenants include a coin laundry, Video Renaissance, iFixaPhone, Paola Salon, Popcraft Pops and Clock Gallery. The building had a new facade added in 2013, and the parking lot's pavement was recently patched, sealed and stripped.

Carl Wise of Preferred Commercial Inc. represented the sellers, and Stan Rutstein of Re/Max Alliance Group represented the buyer.

“This property was owned by the sellers for a long time,” Wise says. “It has a lot of exposure and great visibility.”

The purchase entity, Sarasota Plaza LLC, mortgaged the property to Gateway Bank of Southwest Florida for $761,250.
