The property is newly built and the newest in the local market. Due to this it should have superior amenities than its competive properties.

Due to the new construction there should be a decreased cost of maintenance at the property.

Key Risks

The property has not reached stabilized occupancy even though it has been open since 2014.

The rents at the property are the highest in the local market. This could be the reason occupancy has been below stabilized value, however the property is the newest in the market and has the most superior amenities.

Population in the 5-mile radius is low, however the enrollment at Western Georgia has been increasing and should boost this figure.

The closest major city is over 50 miles away and is Atlanta, Georgia.
