The team at our affiliated broker-dealer, RM Securities, conducts diligence on of the issuer, including detailed background checks, criminal checks, bad actor checks, and reference checks on sponsors. In addition to screening for any criminal background, we may also turn down sponsors due to poor reference checks, even if the background and criminal checks are satisfactory.

Escrow accounts

We require unaffiliated sponsors to use an unaffiliated third-party escrow agent.* When an investor makes an investment with such 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 contingency 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.

Unless otherwise disclosed, escrow accounts are not required for some investments that accommodate 1031 investments where the property is already acquired.

Boots on the ground

Our processes typically includes visiting certain properties (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. For certain properties that accommodate 1031 exchange investments, the team will review third-party prepared due diligence reports in lieu of a site visit.

Detailed Checklists

We have formalized processes and checklists for every private placement deal listed on the platform.

Investment Returns: Discerning investors don't rely on a single projected return metric as a basis to invest. Rather, when assessing a potential investment, we encourage you to evaluate all information provided by a sponsor including the business plan, assumptions, and risk factors which can be found in the relevant offering documents. This approach is consistent with our requirements as a broker-dealer, which prohibit us from communicating projected returns.

Minimum Investment 35000
A 97.6% occupied industrial, value-add investment opportunity in the Tampa/St. Petersburg MSA, one of the fastest-growing, low-vacancy industrial markets in Florida.

Rising Interest Rate Protection and Attractive Basis, with Ability To Stabilize at a 9.6% Cap Rate: The Sponsor is acquiring the asset at a 6.5% cap rate. This is a ~50% discount to replacement cost and a ~30% discount to recent market comps. This cost basis is protected, as supply is constrained by high construction costs and limited availability of developable land. Additionally, the Sponsor has secured a low leverage, 57% LTV fixed rate interest-only bank loan. The underwritten loan rate of 6.00% offers investors going-in positive leverage and offers more than 300 bps of positive spread vs. the stabilized cap rate of 9.6%. The going-in basis, combined with the market-to-market business plan and low leverage offers investors a unique opportunity to earn an attractive yield on a real estate investment in a rising interest rate environment.


Skyway Industrial Park is located along the I-275 corridor which travels through the Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL MSA in Pinellas County. The I-275/I-4 corridor has seen significant population growth and increased industrial demand in the post-COVID era. Pinellas County is the densest county in the State of Florida and the proximate additional growth of surrounding counties is expected to spur further growth in an industrial market that is currently exhibiting a vacancy rate of 1.6%. The Property will also benefit from the recent Gateway Expressway project delivering in 2023 for a cost of roughly $600 million, and the I-275 Bridge project with a projected cost of $865 million to be completed in late 2025. Both of these infrastructure projects will enhance the Property's highway accessibility throughout Pinellas County by further improving drive time and therefore expanding tenant demand.


The Sponsor has developed a high-touch asset management approach that has been integrated into several multi-tenant industrial flex properties in Florida and many more in the Southeast. By fostering tenant relationships, addressing cosmetic improvements, and marking rents to market through detailed analysis, the Sponsor will increase revenues at the Property within the hold period. Given the Sponsor's previous experience with multi-tenant industrial assets and their relationship with leasing brokers, the Sponsor is confident in their ability to optimize performance at the Property and provide attractive returns to investors. This is evidenced by the executed LOI that the Sponsor has secured with a tenant for $14 PSF NNN on 2,594 SF of space that has been vacant for over five years.

Investment Highlights
Low In-Place Rents Create a Mark-to-Market Opportunity: While the Sponsor is acquiring the asset with in-place income, market rents are roughly 30-50% below the market lease comparables. Industrial asking rents in the market range between $9-11/SF NNN, while the Subject Property is at $5.11/SF NNN. There are multiple opportunities to create value through resetting the rent roll to market rates – 50% of rentable square footage is set to expire between 2023-2025.
NNN Leases Offer Inflation Protection, Particularly from Rising Expenses: Industrial leases are almost always NNN in nature, which means that expenses are passed through to tenants and have minimal impact on cash flow for a well-occupied property. The Sponsor looks closely at total occupancy cost for their tenants, to ensure they are not being overly burdened by the increase in operating expenses, but current rents are so far below market that the Sponsor has significant room for growth here.
The Building is Optimized for Light Manufacturing Use: Skyway's building features offer attractive characteristics sought out by tenants. Skyway has solid construction which is comprised of concrete blocks and metal. All interior space is HVAC controlled, the average clear height is 20', and the Property features a robust amount of dock-high and grade-level truck access points with wide-spaced columns. Skyway's high-power output, strong parking ratio, and variety of space configurations ensure that the asset can meet the needs of multiple tenants and is an attractive option for any light manufacturing and assembly-based company.
The Property has an Excellent, Strategic Location: Skyway Industrial Park is strategically located immediately off of I-275 which connects the St. Petersburg peninsula to Tampa, I-4, Bradenton, and Sarasota. The major thoroughfare has been a primary driver of industrial demand and development in the region.
Tampa is a High Growth Market, with Significant Industrial Demand and Limited New Supply: Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL has seen the majority of net population growth in Florida since 2020. Infrastructure spending and new development provide excellent tailwinds for the asset and support the Sponsor's long-term outlook. Additionally, the labor force in Pinellas County, the densest county in Florida, is historically favorable for companies engaging in light manufacturing and industrial-related projects. With Pinellas County already the densest county in the State of Florida, the proximate growth of surrounding counties will add additional demand, which is already exemplified in the Pinellas County industrial market vacancy rate of 1.6%.
Pinellas County: Pinellas County is the most densely populated county in Florida. Historically, Clearwater, FL and Pinellas County were manufacturing hubs and, to this day, have a skilled labor force tailored for industrial jobs. The fundamentals of Pinellas County's industrial market are extremely strong with double-digit rent growth, extremely low vacancy, limited supply, and feverish demand.
Florida: Over the past 2-years, Florida has undergone the second-largest population growth in the US. 655,221 people have moved to Florida from 2020-2022 which equates to 798 people per day of net growth. The composition of high earners (+$200K per annum) moving to Florida outperformed any other state by a scale of 4 to 1. A majority of the net population growth (150,000 people) moved to Hillsborough, Polk, and Orange County, which are all situated within an hour of Skyway.

Skyway Industrial Park is expected to close in May 2023. The asset, built in 1989, is a 232,206 SF Class B industrial facility in a Class A MSA. The proximity to the I-275 corridor allows for efficient access to neighboring markets and connects the Central Florida I-4 corridor to the Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL MSA. The Property is currently 97.6% occupied and will be 98.6% when the Sponsor closes on the Property due to an LOI in hand on 2,594 SF of space for $14.00 PSF NNN.

The Seller has not extracted value from asset management and has focused on capital appreciation purely on the tailwinds of the market. The Seller's focus was on increasing occupancy and the weighted average lease term with a minimal capital infusion which has resulted in a rent roll that has rents substantially below market. The Sponsor intends to prioritize the tenant-landlord relationship to optimize revenue and expenses. The Wideman Company’s expertise in high-touch asset management affords them the opportunity to add tangible value to the Property and the tenants through attention to minor deferred items and fulfilling basic tenant needs. The team at Wideman Company understands that there is tremendous value in communication with tenants when it comes to addressing their basic needs so that they’re more amenable to extending their leases at market rents.

Current vacancy for industrial products in Pinellas County is at approximately 1.6% and market data suggests that industrial asking rents in the submarket start at $8.00 PSF NNN with most comparable space signing leases at $9.00 - $11.00 PSF NNN. Skyway's weighted average rent is $5.11 PSF NNN across the 9 tenants. With significant upside on marking rents to market, locational and potential local development tailwinds, and overall economic tailwinds in Florida, there is a healthy upside to this asset. 50% of the rentable area is secured by leases that expire between 2023-2026 presenting an opportunity to mark-to-market those rents. Please see the lease comparables section of web content and the financial analysis for additional context.

The St. Petersburg non-profit is committing to a capital investment in cold storage to use this facility as its main distribution hub. They have accepted a lease at $6.50 PSF with no TI obligation on Landlord and the tenants plan to invest approximately $3,000,000 of their own capital into a cold storage build-out which will be integral to their ability to use that space, and the space will become mission critical to their overall business.

Roger's Garment Restoration's lease is currently well below market rents for full AC climate-controlled space. Long term, they are expanding their business quickly and are looking to expand into additional space when it becomes available. Epodex (LED January 2025) is a potential for that new space and once again, provides an opportunity to mark-to-market.

Oakhurst Sign accounts for 81,266 SF of space (or 35% of GLA) with a lease expiration date of March 2029. The lease was signed by the Seller with limited negotiation at $4.75 PSF NNN. Rents have materially increased since lease commencement as similar space is going for $9.00 PSF NNN. The Sponsor plans to approach the tenant for an early lease extension in exchange for tenant improvements and/or space expansion prior to selling the Property. This has not been underwritten in the base case proforma and represents a potential additional upside.

On the acquisition side, the Sponsor has secured a 5-year 57% LTV fixed rate interest-only loan with BankUnited. The rate is fixed at 2.20% above the 5-year treasury (with an indicative rate of 5.8% as of 4/18/23). The loan has step-down pre-payment penalties of 3% in year 1, 2% in year 2, 1% in year 3, and .5% in year 4. The Wideman Company has a long-standing relationship with BankUnited and has used them for financing several acquisitions in excess of $100M. The loan rate will be locked 3 days prior to the closing date for Skyway and the Sponsor has underwritten a 6.0% interest rate in case there is movement in the 5-year treasury before closing.

Location Information

Market Overview

Tampa and St. Petersburg have emerged as key industrial markets as population growth along the I-4 corridor has sharply increased. Rapid growth in demand has left the Tampa/St. Petersburg market struggling to find quality industrial space despite record-setting new deliveries. In the industrial asset class, net absorption has outpaced new deliveries every quarter of 2022 which has driven rents across the Tampa/St. Petersburg market to $9.00 PSF NNN. Developers are attempting to satisfy demand, but the market does not have sufficient centrally located land to construct new deliveries that are attractive to industrial users. Additionally, local zoning committees are hesitant to issue new zoning for industrial projects, further constraining supply.

The bulk of industrial assets is concentrated around the I-275 highway with a large pocket north of Skyway in the Gateway submarket and big box new deliveries in Sarasota, south of Skyway. Considering the demand in the industrial space, companies are forced to lease space either south or north of the more central markets of Tampa and Clearwater.

As absorption and deliveries have smashed record highs, vacancy rates continue to trend down toward historic lows. The data points to the conclusion that tenant demand is outpacing the development pipeline by a significant margin. According to JLL's Q4 2022 industrial market report, estimated tenant requirements in 2023 are in excess of 30 MSF and only 3.1 MSF are set to be delivered in that time. The rift between demand and new supply is going to further drive asking rates and sentiment for existing assets in the market.

Submarket Overview

Historically, Pinellas County was a manufacturing hub and continues to provide a significant manufacturing labor force for surrounding companies. Pinellas is the most densely populated county in Florida and is suffering from tight supply in the industrial space. It is our view that the surrounding labor force in Pinellas is not replaceable if tenants were to move out of the county into new developments in either Ocala to the North or Sarasota to the South.

A recent redevelopment was announced for Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg just North of Skyway. The plan, set forth by the Tampa Bay Rays and real estate developer Hines, calls for a 7-million-square-foot redevelopment and a mixed-use district, including more than 5,700 multi-family housing units, 1.4 million square feet of office space, 300,000 square feet of retail space, 700 hotel rooms, 600 senior living residences, a 2,500-person entertainment venue, and various civic uses.

According to a Hines/Rays press release, “the site would include over 20 new urban blocks and provide public benefit on over half of the land area, in addition to nine sustainability strategies that will advance the city’s priorities and position St. Petersburg as a leading city for large-scale resilience. The new development will cost around $4 billion, a significant capital influx for the region and a tailwind for landlords in the immediate area.

We make no representations or warranties as to the accuracy of information on this Page or in the Sponsor’s Investment Documents and we accept no liability therefor. No part of the information on this Page or in the Sponsor’s Investment Documents is intended to be binding on us.

The information on this Page is not complete and subject to change at the Sponsor’s discretion at any time up to the closing date. The Sponsor’s Investment Documents and supplements thereto contain important information about the Sponsor’s offering including relevant investment objectives, the business plan, risks, charges, expenses, and other information, which you should consider carefully before investing.

Risk of Investment

This investment is speculative, highly illiquid, and involves substantial risk. There can be no assurances that all or any of Sponsor’s assumptions, expectations, estimates, goals, hypothetical illustrations, or other aspects of Sponsor’s business plans (“Assumptions”) will be true or that actual performance will bear any relation to Sponsor’s Assumptions, and no guarantee or representation is made that Sponsor’s Assumptions will be achieved. If Sponsor does not achieve its Assumptions, your investment could be materially and adversely affected. A loss of part or all of the principal value of your investment may occur. You should not invest unless you can readily bear the consequences of such loss. Sponsor’s Assumptions should not be relied upon as the primary basis for your decision to invest.

No Reliance on Forward-Looking Statements; Sponsor Assumptions

Sponsor is solely responsible for statements made concerning forward-looking statements and Assumptions, which apply only as of the date made, are preliminary and subject to change, and are expressly qualified in their entirety by the disclosures and cautionary statements included in Sponsor’s Investment Documents, which you should carefully review. Neither RM Securities nor Sponsor are obligated to update or revise such forward-looking statements or Assumptions to reflect events or circumstances that arise after the date made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. Sponsor’s forward-looking statements and Assumptions are hypothetical, not based on actual investment achievements or events, and are presented solely for purposes of providing insight into the Sponsor’s investment objectives, detailing Sponsor’s anticipated risk and reward characteristics, and establishing a benchmark for future evaluation of actual results; therefore, they are not a predictor, projection, or guarantee of future results. You should not rely on Sponsor’s forward-looking statements as a basis to invest.

Importantly, we do not adopt, endorse, or provide any assurance of returns or as to the accuracy or reasonableness of Sponsor’s Assumptions or forward-looking statements.

No Reliance on Past Performance

Any description of past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and should not be relied upon as the primary basis to invest.

Sponsor’s Use of Debt

A substantial portion of the total cost of the real estate asset acquired by the Sponsor with investor funds (“Property”) will be paid with borrowed funds, i.e., debt. Sponsor’s estimated rates and terms of the debt financing are subject to lender approval, and there is no assurance that the Sponsor will secure debt at the rates and terms presented on this Page or in the Sponsor’s Investment Documents, or at all. The use of borrowed money to acquire real estate is referred to as leveraging, which can amplify losses and could result in lender foreclosure. In addition, if the debt includes a variable (or “floating”) interest rate, the total amount of interest paid over the term of the debt will fluctuate and can increase. As a result, Sponsor’s use of debt can result in a loss of some or all of your investment.

Sponsor’s Offering is Not Registered

Sponsor’s securities offering will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in reliance upon the exemptions from registration pursuant to Rule 506(c) of Regulation D as promulgated under the Securities Act (“Private Placement”). In addition, the offering will not be registered under any state securities laws in reliance on exemptions from state registration. Such securities (your ownership interests) are subject to restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under applicable state and federal securities laws pursuant to registration or an available exemption. All Private Placements on the Platform are intended solely for “Accredited Investors,” as that term is defined in Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act.

Nothing on this Page should be regarded as investment advice (either with respect to a particular security or regarding an overall investment strategy), a recommendation, an offer to sell, or a solicitation of or an offer to buy any security. Advice from a securities professional is strongly advised to understand and assess the risks associated with real estate or private placement investments.
