Red Mountain Storage facility sold for $5.2 million

Red Mountain Storage on Nevada Highway behind the Rebel Gas Station has been sold for $5.2 million, according to the two holding companies that bought the facility.

Las Vegas-based MVP REIT and Vestin Realty Mortgage II bought the 299-unit, 5-acre facility at 1675 Nevada Highway, behind Rebel and Red Mountain Plaza for $17,391-per-unit.

The 23-building self-storage complex totals 112,000 rentable square feet. The sale price equals $46 per square foot. The facility, which consists of 288 single-story units and 11 open recreational vehicle spaces, is more than 97 percent occupied. MVP REIT will own 51 percent while Vestin will control 49 percent through a jointly managed limited liability company.

The acquisition is the third major purchase along the highway this year. Marshall Plaza, 1680 Nevada Highway, was acquired in February for $1.5 million, and the old Kentucky Fried Chicken, 1620 Nevada Highway, building and land was purchased for $723,800. That ¾ of an acre property is being converted into a Winchell’s Donut House.

Water crucial to good health

Drinking enough water every day is good for overall health. As plain drinking water has zero calories, it can also help with managing body weight and reducing caloric intake when substituted for drinks with calories, like regular soda. Drinking water can prevent dehydration, a condition that can cause unclear thinking, result in mood change and cause your body to overheat or lead to constipation and kidney stones.
