Investment Highlights
The property recently received $2.7M in capital improvements to the exterior, common areas, and a partial upgrade to 191 of the unit interiors. These partial upgrades have resulted in $100-$125 rent premiums on average and allow for the opportunity to take 100% of the units to a "full upgrade".
120 units are eligible for the addition of private fenced yards that could command up to a $75 monthly premium. Berkshire has assumed a $50 monthly premium for conservatism. Additional upside exists by simply adding washer and dryer appliances to the 68 units that currently have connections for a $40 monthly premium.
Located in Richardson ISD, the property benefits from an excellent location in a highly sought after school district. There are no units currently under construction or planned within a 3-mile radius.

Business Plan

Berkshire Property Holdings is pleased to offer investors the opportunity to invest up to $5.0 million of LP Joint Venture equity into Parks at Walnut RM, LLC which will subsequently invest into Parks at Walnut JV, LLC which will acquire and renovate the Property.  This amount equates to 42.2% of the total equity. The Real Estate Company intends to implement a value-add strategy in which it will renovate both the unrenovated and the partially renovated units. $7,606 per unit will be spent on the unrenovated units, with improvements including new stainless appliances, flooring, kitchen/bath fixtures, and countertops. $3,600 per unit will be spent on the partially renovated units, with improvements including new cabinets, countertops, and paint. The capex budget also contains $188,712 for deferred maintenance and $278,478 for exterior improvements. 68 units (which already have washer/dryer connections) are going to be fitted with washer/dryers at a cost of $700 per unit, and 120 units are going to be fitted with private yards at a cost of $1,200 per unit. The Real Estate Company is targeting a premium of $40 per month for the washer/dryers and $50 per month for the private yards, in addition to the premium that they expect for improving the quality of the unit interiors and the Property overall. The business plan calls for a five-year hold, at which point the Property is to be sold at a 6.00% exit cap for $42.3 MM ($137,422 per unit).

There can be no assurance that the methodology used for calculating targeted IRR is appropriate or adequate. Target IRR is presented solely for the purpose of providing insight into the Investment Entity’s investment objectives, detailing its anticipated risk and reward characteristics and for establishing a benchmark for future evaluation of the Investment Entity’s performance. Targeted IRR is not a predictor, projection or guarantee of future performance. There can be no assurance that the Investment Entity’s targets will be met or that the Investment Entity will be successful in identifying and investing in investment opportunities that would allow the Investment Entity to meet these return parameters. Target returns should not be used as a primary basis for an investor’s decision to invest in the Investment Entity. Please see the applicable Investment Documents for disclosure relating to forward-looking statements.

Any financial projections are preliminary and subject to change; the Sponsor undertakes no obligation to update or revise these forward–looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that arise after the date made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. Inevitably, some assumptions will not materialize, and unanticipated events and circumstances may affect the ultimate financial results. Projections are inherently subject to substantial and numerous uncertainties and to a wide variety of significant business, economic and competitive risks, and the assumptions underlying the projections may be inaccurate in any material respect. Therefore, the actual results achieved may vary significantly from the forecasts, and the variations may be material.

All investing activities risk the loss of capital. There can be no assurance that investors will not suffer significant losses. No guarantee or representation is made that investment objectives of the Investment Entity will be achieved. You should not subscribe to purchase interests in the Investment Entity unless you can readily bear the consequences of such loss.

Interests in the Investment Entity are listed on the RealtyMogul Platform.
