The 1.28ac parcel at 834 N. Atlantic Ave has sold for $2,200,000. This is just under $40/SF, and now the highest sale per square foot, compared to any of any of the sites 200′ or greater. ┬áThe seller was DB Investments of Pinellas, who purchased the site as bank-owned foreclosure in July of 2011. This sale represents the first oceanfront land sale between 2 private parties since late 2007. It is also the first of the formerly bank-owned foreclosed parcels to re-trade from an pure investor to a group with development plans; this is a significant step forward for the beachfront property in Daytona Beach.

During the low part of the recession, there was a fair amount of negative publicity around the outside investment by private equity groups and real estate funds. The fears voiced at that time were that these outside investors would “sit on” the land for a decade or more, and that it would stall redevelopment of Daytona Beach. My counterpoint to those fears; Investors place money in assets seeking a desired rate of return. If that targeted return can be achieved in 20 years or 20 days, that is the event that triggers the sale the investment.
