Key Benefits

The properties are well located and in higher income neighborhoods.

Milwaukee has seen an increase in high wage jobs while middle class jobs are decreasing. High wage areas may be less affected by the slowing of the middle class job sector.

The property has a value add component. This comes in the form of upgrading property amenities and completing minor unit upgrades.

The properties are occupied above the market occupancy rate as well as above stabilized values. As these properties are upgraded occupancy may continue to rise.

Key Risks

Milwaukee is still recovering and has lagged the national in employment growth and total employment percentage.

The property has units that have been fully renovated, which decreases the value add potential. However, these units are currently being leased at above market values which indicates that increased rents may be attainable after the renovations are completed.

The sponsor has underwritten the property aggressively compared to the REIS report for the area. Inland has used 3% compounded rent growth during the hold period while REIS expects the growth to less than 3% for the next 5 years.

The population growth numbers are weak and lag behind the national average growth rate.
