EL CAJON, CA (March 16, 2021) — A 1.31-acre lot with a City-approved plan for a self-storage facility sold for $2.5 million on Feb. 1, 2021 in the commercial corridor of El Cajon, Commercial Asset Advisors announced. The property is located at 1338 E. Main Street in El Cajon. The seller and buyer were not disclosed.

CAA identified the property off market as a site with good potential for self-storage, said CAA Principal Mike Conger. The buyer, seller and CAA worked to secure approvals from the City Council and Planning Commission – significantly enhancing the value of the property. As a result, the buyer obtains a property with a shovel-ready site for developing a self-storage facility.

“This site presented an opportunity to maximize the value of this property by having a well-executed entitlement process that took place during escrow,” Conger said. “I’m proud that CAA’s team navigated another successful escrow during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
