Project Summary
Explore this project
Roosevelt Commons is a brand new, 2020 built property comprised of 36 townhome style units located in Vancouver, Washington projecting double-digit average cash on cash with low 63% loan-to-value leverage.
Desirable Product Type

Roosevelt Commons is a brand new, 2020 built property comprised of 36 townhome style units. Interior finishes include stainless steel appliance packages, luxury vinyl plank flooring, and modern flat panel cabinetry amongst various other design touches which allow the property to achieve above market rents.

10-Year Tax Abatement

Eight of the units have been reserved for residents earning 80% Area Median Income (AMI). This qualifies the Property to receive a 10-year tax abatement from Vancouver's MFTE program which runs through the year 2030. By not having to pay taxes on the improvements to the land, the Property averages a tax savings of over $120,000 a year throughout the hold period.


Roosevelt Commons is in Vancouver, a city just north of Portland on the Washington state side of the metro. Being in Washington state, Vancouver has no income tax. With over thirty-one thousand multifamily units, it is the largest submarket in the region. Vancouver's rent growth has outperformed the overall Portland metro for the past six years, and year-over-year submarket gains are significantly stronger than Portland's performance.

Investment Highlights
RM Communities is acquiring the Property for $12.55 million, which represents a going-in cap rate of 4.24% on expected year one net operating income.
Roosevelt Commons brings a highly desirable new construction 4-bedroom townhome style product to a supply-constrained market. Within the Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro market, three-plus bedroom units account for only 8.6% of all existing inventory. Paired with Vancouver’s submarket vacancy rate of 1.8% in 2Q21, the Property is poised to trend rents throughout the hold period.
RM Communities believes in-place rents are 30% below market as the Property leased up in the midst of the Covid pandemic. They believe within the first year of ownership they can trend rents towards market and the max allowable rents for the affordable units.
RM Communities plans to obtain a supplemental loan of ~$1.6MM in year two of the hold period. This projected capital event would return ~30% of the equity invested in the Project.
As of July 2021, the Property appraised for $150,000 over the purchase price.
Roosevelt Commons participates in the MFTE (Multi-Family Tax Exemption Program) in conjunction with the City of Vancouver. In exchange for keeping a minimum of 20% of units (8) restricted to households earning up to 80% AMI, the Property will receive a 100% tax abatement on the improvements. This will result in an annual average tax savings of $120,000.
RM Communities will retain FPI Management, a nationally recognized property management company. RM Communities has historical experience with FPI as their property manager. With a strong regional base in the Pacific Northwest, they are confident in partnering with FPI to achieve the Property’s projected performance.
The exit strategy is to sell the Property in 7 years at an anticipated cap rate of 5.0%.

Business Plan

Roosevelt Commons is a stabilized cash-flowing deal with below market rents. The Property opened for leasing in the midst of the COVID pandemic. Current ownership initially focused on leasing up the Property quickly to maximize occupancy instead of pushing rent. RM Communities believes in-place rents are 30% below market rent. For the income restricted units, they project to burn off loss-to-lease on those units by trending toward the max allowable rents for 4-bedroom units in the city of Vancouver. The market rate units will be pushed to $2,100 per unit.

Additionally, the Sponsor has set aside $71,400 for property amenity upgrades which include: Amazon Lockers, covered BBQ area, pet waste station, exterior signage, and a trail to connect the Property to the Burnt Bridge Creek Greenway. 

The Property will be financed with highly attractive debt from Freddie Mac taking advantage of record-low interest rates. The Sponsor anticipates a 7-year loan with full term interest only. In addition, they are modeling a supplemental loan to be added to the Property in month 24 of the hold.

RM Communities plans to exit in seven years at a 5.00% cap rate.

Market Overview: Portland

Portland's multifamily sector is weathering the lingering effects of COVID-19 relatively well. Record-high job losses ate away at apartment demand in the early months of the pandemic, but leasing intensified in the first and second quarters of 2021 as the local economy found its footing. In contrast to many Western U.S. metros, vacancies declined slightly in Portland in 2020, and rent levels have fully recovered to eclipse pre-pandemic levels. As vaccines to combat the virus become more widely distributed, people will be able to return to a more normal daily routine, which should help bring more business and demand to the heavily battered urban cores.

Portland is coming off a massive construction wave that boosted apartment inventory by about 30% over the past decade, including a 3.5% increase over the past year. The region's affordability and high quality of life are driving robust in-migration, which underpins apartment demand. Some newly remote workers are leaving pricey coastal cities for less dense, less expensive options, and Portland seems to be reaping the benefits of that trend.

Portland is home to the headquarters of Fortune 500 companies Nike and Lithia Motors. Fortune 1000 companies headquartered in Portland include Columbia Sportswear, Greenbrier Cos. and Portland General Electric. Additionally, Fortune 500 companies based outside Oregon with major operations in Portland are Precision Castparts and Intel. Companies that have opened major branches in Portland include: Airbnb, Google, Squarespace, Mozilla, SurveyMonkey, Salesforce, and New Relic

Submarket Overview: Vancouver

As the largest suburb in the Portland metro, Vancouver is known for strong employment, great schools, no income taxes, and an abundance of retail, recreation, and transportation options. Vancouver has seen significant investment in many of the city’s business and infostructure, attracting a host of premier technology, healthcare, and financial services.

Vancouver is the 4th most populous city in Washington, and one of its most significant draws is a purely practical one. The housing is relatively affordable when compared to the major Pacific Northwest cities.  In addition, there are ample outdoor recreational activities within a car drive away which include Mount Adams, Mount St. Helens, the Olympic Peninsula, and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.

The Vancouver waterfront is undergoing a $1.5 billion redevelopment project and will deliver 250,000 sf of new retail and restaurants, and 1.25M sf of new class A office. A 138-key Hotel Indigo is also part of the plans and a public market space.

With no state income tax, proximity to outstanding outdoor recreation, an active downtown area, a revitalized waterfront, and various historical attractions, Vancouver has much to offer. Vancouver residents enjoy Portland’s metro area’s urban and cultural amenities, a low crime rate, lower cost of living, and easy access to the Columbia River. One of the city’s most popular outdoor events is its farmer’s market, held in downtown’s Esther Short Park. Vancouver has two school districts—Vancouver and Evergreen. Split between East and West Vancouver, the two districts encompass 43 elementary schools, 12 middle schools, and 14 high schools. Vancouver has been hard at work revitalizing its Columbia River waterfront area. This phenomenal development represents a giant step toward modernizing the city’s image and bringing new life downtown.

The expected terms of the debt financing are as follows:

  • Loan Type: Freddie Mac

  • Loan Amount: $7,940,000
  • Interest Rate: 2.70%
  • Remaining Loan Term: 7 Years
  • Remaining Interest-Only: 7 Years
  • Amortization: 30 Years

A substantial portion of the total acquisition for the Property will be paid with borrowed funds.
