Chicago, IL October 6, 2010 — NRC Realty & Capital Advisors, LLC, announced today it has been retained in the lender liquidation sale of 58 acres approved for 289 housing lots in Merced, CA, an office building in Fresno, CA, and approximately 361 acres of land in Buckeye, AZ.

The Merced housing sites sit on 58.13 acres and consist of 289 proposed single-family lots, ranging in size from 5,250 to 7,500 square feet and are Phase II and III of the Moraga planned residential development. Starting bid is $400,000.

Located in the northeast section of Merced at the corner of Yosemite Avenue, a major east/west arterial street, and Via Moraga Street, the neighborhood is improved with single-family houses, retail uses and service-commercial buildings along the Yosemite Corridor, an established commercial and residential district. Offsite improvements include concrete curbs, sidewalks and streetlights.

Phase II has 233 lots with tentative map approval and Phase III has tentative map approval pending. The lots are generally rectangular in shape and design with widths of 50 to 60 feet and depths of approximately 105 feet.

Constructed in 1962, the two-story, 7,296-gross-square-foot Fresno office building at 3003 N. Blackstone Avenue is at the northwest corner of Blackstone and Cornell Avenues. There are 18 office suites in the building, and paved parking for 22 cars. Starting bid is $150,000.

Located near the Phoenix metropolitan area within the planned community of Elianto, along the Sun Valley Parkway in the town of Buckeye in Maricopa County, AZ, the approximate 361 acres of land for sale is zoned for commercial and medium density residential (3-6 dwelling units per acre). While unimproved, the site has water and sewer entitlement solutions in place. Sun Valley Parkway is considered the primary transportation corridor for the area. The property is in close proximity to the Buckeye Municipal Airport. Starting bid is $800,000.

"Our seller would like to get these properties sold by the end of the year and off their books," said Evan Gladstone, NRC's Executive Managing Director. "This is a good opportunity for investors and opportunistic buyers."
