Shops at Main and Lindsey

[This offering is fully subscribed. This is provided as an example of one of the offerings previously recommended by advisors we trust.]


The Shops at Lindsay & Main was a bank-owned REO property that consisted of a multi-tenant retail strip center located on the Southwest corner of Main Street and Lindsay Road in Mesa, Arizona. The property was only 38% occupied when acquired, providing an opportunity to increase cash flow and upside potential by increasing the occupancy and replacing lower-credit-quality tenants with higher credit quality tenants. The units were also leased at below-market rates, and scheduled increases were written into the terms, providing an additional way to increase cash flow. The location of the property was also a driving factor in the acquisition. The shops are highly visible and accessible, with convenient ingress and egress from both Main Street and Lindsay Road. Main and Lindsay is a heavily trafficked intersection, with around 38,800 vehicles per day. Additionally, there are around 322,550 residents within a 5-mile radius of the shops, and Mesa is the second largest city in the Phoenix metro. The opportunity to acquire the property at a discount, the potential to increase cash flow through lease-up and credit enhancement, and the strong location all aligned to make this opportunity especially appealing. It sold at a 25%+ profit after approximately 26 months.


The investment was structured for Tenant-in-Common (TIC) ownership, and designed to qualify as a replacement property in a 1031 exchange. Depending on each investor's tax basis at the time of invesment, many investors were also able to utilize depreciation to defer the taxes on a portion of the income derived from the investment. Investors were also able to complete a 1031 exchange out of the investment after it sold to continue to defer 100% of their capital gains taxes.


  1. Stable, long-term cash flow backed by value-oriented retail property.
  2. Capital gains tax deferral as a 1031 replacement property option.
  3. An option for income-tax avoidance via depreciation.
  4. Potential long-term upside, either due to a sale or to increasing rental income.


This offering performed inline with projections, providing steady cash flow for 1031 and cash investors until it sold at a substantial profit. Individual investors in the program will be able to derive income-tax deferral from the depreciation allowed for commercial real estate.

Annualized Cash Flow Return:



Total Return (Incl. Cash Flow):

25.31% in 26 and ½ months in addition to a 100% return of capital.
