The property is occupied at nearly 100% with 99.5% of the units occupied as of the date of the appraisal. Due to the high occupancy at the property there may be room to increase rents and keep occupancy above stabilized values.
Upfront Reserves are nearly $1.5 Million which is set aside for renovations of the units and amenities at the property. The Property Condition Report calls for a total of $562,770 during the hold period which leaves significant reserves for capital improvements.
There is Value-Add opportunity at the property for ExcangeRight. They have planned upgrades to half of the property units as well as property amenities. According to ExchangeRight's business plan, these upgrades are anticipated to generate an additional $70 per month in upgraded units.
According to the appraisal at the property, the previously renovated units are leased for a premium of about 8-9% higher than non-upgraded units. Due to the Value-Add strategy ExchangeRight may be able to achieve this premium in all units after completing their planned upgrades.
The largest employer in the area is the Department of Defense. With current political uncertainty, should the defense budget be decreased the property may be affected by out-migration of employees of the Department of Defense.
Pensacola has been a strong market recently, but during the recession of 2009 there was a large out-migration in the area. If another recession hits the nation or the local area, the property could be affected negatively.
There is no guarantee that the anticipated premium on upgraded units will be achieved by ExchangeRight. This would limit the cash flow should they not be attained. However, the previous owner was able to achieve a premium of 8-9% in upgraded units.
