Purchase Price
as of march 2012


The partnership acquired Granada Lakes Apartments in August 2011. The project was lender-owned, and listed by Cushman & Wakefield. We tendered an immediate, aggressive cash offer which was accepted by the bank. Our inspections and research into the prior ownership revealed that rents were $200 per unit per month below their 2009 levels.

An NAI Certified Appraisal report valued the building at a 6.75% CAP rate based on the PricewaterhouseCoopers National Investor Index. Our final purchase price was $2,287,500, making our stabilized unlevered yield 14.7% based on value, and 14.5% based on total cost. Using the appraised cap rate, the property would trade near $4.9mm, an increase in value of $2.6mm within 8 months of ownership.

This dramatic increase in revenues and moderate expenses is symbolic of our passion for asset management. We accomplished this lift in revenues with only five renovated apartments, thus leaving plenty of upside for the next buyer. We always have our eye on the exit strateg
