Press Release from the Miller Diversified
The Miller Investment Fund is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new office property in Tiffin, Ohio.
Located at 2499 W. Market St. in Tiffin, this property includes office, retail and small storage space which totals 11,200 square feet. Since the building’s acquisition, the property has achieved 100% occupancy, boasting established tenants including H&R Block, ProMedica, the Pharmacy Counter and State Farm Insurance.
“The acquisition of the Tiffin building is another great addition to this diversified portfolio of properties.” said Kurt Miller, Fund Principal and CEO of Miller Diversified. “We continue to search for qualified properties across the expanded Midwest, and this property offered a superb opportunity for our investors.”
The property first came to the Miller team’s attention when a prospective tenant reached out to Miller Diversified’s brokerage team for representation. The President of Miller Diversified Realty and Fund Executive Advisor Tim Schlachter began to learn more about the building, and he saw a significant opportunity to improve upon the value of the property through acquisition and lease-up.
“I took the information to the Fund team, and we knew it would be a good fit,” Schlachter said. “We have a strong in-house property management team, so we knew if we could check all the boxes in the review process, we would be able to bring tenants to the building and make the improvements needed for this one to be a strong addition to the portfolio, which is exactly what we’ve done now.”
