We run extensive background checks, criminal checks, bad actor checks, and reference checks on sponsors. In addition to never allowing a sponsor with a criminal history / any securities related issue to use the platform, we may also turn down sponsors due to poor reference checks even if background and criminal checks come back clear.
We require unaffiliated sponsors to use an unaffiliated third-party escrow agent. When an investor makes an investment with unaffiliated sponsors using the RealtyMogul platform, the investor’s money is transferred directly into a third-party escrow account. All closing conditions in connection with a sponsor’s offering need to be met before the third-party escrow agent will approve releasing investor funds to the issuer or general partner. For example, if an issuer or general partner plans to use funds for a real estate acquisition that does not ultimately transact, the third-party escrow agent will not transfer investor funds to the issuer or general partner, and funds will be returned to investors.
Our controls include visiting every property (or a subset of properties if it’s a fund) to confirm the real estate is what and where the real estate is supposed to be.
We have robust quality controls with detailed checklists and a review of third-party reports.
The Real Estate Company is highly experienced in the area, with eight assets in Austin. Additionally, having owned and operated the Property since 2015, the Real Estate Company has unique insight into pro forma rents and expenses.
A partnership with Austin Affordable Housing Corporation (AAHC) allows us to take advantage of a 100% property tax exemption during the hold period.
Per CoStar, the area enjoys a strong demographic profile, with a population of nearly 300,000 and median household income of over $64,000 within a five-mile radius.

In this transaction, RealtyMogul investors are to invest in Realty Mogul 149, LLC ("The Company"), which is to subsequently invest in Violet Holdings, LLC ("The Target"), a limited liability company that will indirectly own interest in the Property. Presidium purchased the Property for $12.7 million ($79,375 per unit) in May 2015 and plans to sell the Property to Housing Authority of City of Austin (“HACA”) for $22.0 million ($137,500 per unit) in April 2020. Presidium's cost basis is reportedly $17.0 million ($106,250 per unit). HACA shall then enter into a 75-year ground lease with Presidium and AAHC (collectively the "Real Estate Company"). Through the Real Estate Company's partnership with AAHC, the Property will be exempt from annual property taxes.
Presidium’s business plan is to continue driving value through the implementation of a $1.3 million ($8,319/unit) capital improvement plan, pushing rents from the current level of $1,034 per unit to $1,076 in Year 1. With unit and exterior improvements, the Real Estate Company plans to increase rents by an additional 3% each year thereafter. A joint venture will be formed between the Limited Partners (RM included), Presidium, and AAHC for the recapitalization of The Violet. The AAHC's minority position allows for the Property to be exempt from yearly property taxes, and in turn, save an average of $300,000 in property tax expense per year. To comply with AAHC requirements under the structure and to ensure the partnership receives the property tax exemption, at least 51% of the units at The Violet will be set aside for households earning 80% of the area median income. However, this restriction will not affect the Real Estate Company's ability to maintain and increase rent as 100% of the units fall well below this threshold. There is also a 10.0% and 10.0% construction management fee. The business plan calls for a five-year hold, at which point the Property is expected to be sold at a 4.75% cap rate for $26.7 million ($166,567 per unit).
Below is a summary of the capital improvements budget:
Capital Improvements Budget Summary:
|Exterior Renovations||Total||Per Unit|
|Paint and carpentry||$350,000||$2,188|
|Parking lot reseal/stripe||$75,000||$469|
|Other mechanical renovations||$55,000||$344|
|Subtotal Exterior Renovations||$800,000||$5,000|
|Subtotal Interior Renovations||$300,000||$1,875|
|Construction Management Fee (10%)||$121,000||$756|
|Total Estimated Budget||$1,331,000||$8,319|

The Austin metro has been rated as the best place to live according to U.S. News and World Report for the past three years thanks to exceptional job growth, migration, and desirability. Low business costs, pro-business policies, and a high quality of life are the cherries on top of the deep bench of tech talent in Austin generated by the University of Texas at Austin, which regularly ranks as one of the best schools in the world for STEM graduates. Tech companies from Silicon Valley have been relocating their HQs to or opening satellite locations in Austin (Silicon Hills) for years. Two of the largest recent examples are Apple, which announced another expansion to its $1 billion campus in Northwest Austin, and Zoho, which is relocating from the East Bay to Southeast Austin. Austin's employment continues to grow at about twice the national rate, and strong growth should continue. With the 20-34-year-old population approaching 500,000, nearly a quarter of Austin's population consists of millennials. While the metro boasts one of the strongest economies in the nation this cycle, it has also been one of the most development-heavy markets in the country this cycle. In fact, nearly 35% of the inventory has delivered since 2010. However, the Midtown Austin submarket has demonstrated healthy performance. Per Axiometrics, rent growth in the South Austin submarket has averaged 2.9% over the past five years and currently sits at 6.7%. Multifamily vacancy in the submarket has dropped from a peak of 8.2% in Q2 2009 to 4.6% in Q4 2019. 2,200 units are currently under construction, representing 7.5% of the total 30,000 units of multifamily space in the submarket.
