New Standard Equities, Inc.

NSE was formed in 2010 in an effort to capitalize on the extraordinary dislocation in the post‐financial crisis real estate investment market. With significant experience in buying and operating large, institutional-quality multifamily properties throughout the Western U.S., the company is deploying private and institutional capital to purchase and operate apartment assets that offer steady, long-term cash flow to its investors. New Standard Equities’ full-service real estate platform is actively engaged in property management, asset management, construction management and project consultation.

NSE has successfully operated multifamily assets in major markets throughout the Western U.S. There are inherent risks in the task of operating apartment assets, but the firm’s strict philosophy is to minimize those risks by targeting markets it knows and understands. In-fill, supply-constrained markets that offer long-term job growth potential are among the most important dynamics.

Business Plan

In this transaction, investors are to invest in Realty Mogul 75, LLC. Realty Mogul 75, LLC is to subsequently invest in Fairgrounds Investors, LLC, a limited liability company that will (through another wholly-owned entity) hold title to the Property.  

The Sponsor intends on implementing a $665,000 exterior capital improvement plan to enhance the Property's curb appeal and improve the common areas. The exterior capital improvements include new signage, landscaping, hardscape, lighting and facade treatments, and the remodel and expansion of the current clubhouse and fitness center. The Sponsor has also capitalized $1,020,000, or $8,500/unit, for interior unit renovations for all 120 units. The Sponsor plans to repaint the interiors, lay vinyl plank flooring, and upgrade the cabinets, countertops, appliances and bathroom lighting. 

Per review of the October 2016 rent roll, recent leasing for unrenovated units at the Property has already achieved rents that are on average 99% of the expected rents post-renovation for each of the unit types. Refer below for a comparison of the underwritten post-renovation rents to the highest in-place rents at the Property by unit type:

Post-Renovation vs. Highest In-Place
Unit Type # of Units Post-Renovation Rent   Highest In-Place Rent % of Post-Renovation Rent
1/1 26 $1,075 $1,025 95%
2/1 30 $1,220 $1,199 98%
2/2 36 $1,290 $1,249 97%
3/2 28 $1,550 $1,599 103%
Total 120 $1,287 $1,270 99%

The Sponsor intends to begin completing the exterior capital improvements immediately upon acquiring the Property, followed by the interior renovation work starting in month three with projections assuming four units being renovated per month over a 30-month period. Upon completion of all renovations, the Sponsor plans on selling the Property. While the Sponsor targets selling the Property in five years, if the renovations are successfully implemented ahead of schedule and market conditions allow for a favorable sale, the hold period could be shorter. However, the hold period is not guaranteed and could also extend beyond the five-year expectation as well.

Rehab Costs
CapEx Item $ Amount Per Unit
Interior Rehab ($8,500 each for 120 units) $1,020,000 $8,500

The above presentation is based upon information supplied by the Sponsor or others. Realty Mogul, Co., RM Manager, LLC, and Realty Mogul 75, LLC, along with their respective affiliates, officers, directors or representatives (the "RM Parties") hereby advise you that none of them has independently confirmed or verified any of the information contained herein. The RM Parties further make no representations as to the accuracy or completeness of any such information and undertake no obligation now or in the future to update or correct this presentation or any information contained herein.


Apartment Complex - Competition

Competition in the Property’s local market area is significant and may affect the Property’s occupancy levels, rental rates and operating expenses. The Property will compete with other residential alternatives to attract tenants, including but not limited to other apartment units that are currently available for rent, new apartments that are built and condominiums/houses that are for rent or sale. If development of apartment complexes by other operators were to increase, due to increases in availability of funds for investment or other reasons, then competition with the Property could intensify. If the Property is not able to successfully compete with the competitive residential alternatives in the local or regional area this could adversely affect the ability of Sponsor Entity to sell the Property, rent its units as necessary to maintain occupancy, and/or to increase or maintain unit rental rates.

High Military Tenant Concentration and Base Dependency

With 19% of the tenant base related to employment at local military facilities, the operations and financial results of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC are dependent to a significant degree on the stability of those military facilities. The closure of one or more of such facilities, or a significant reduction in their operations, could result in vacancy risk that could adversely affect the rental income realized by Fairgrounds Investors, LLC and thus the business operations and financial results of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC and Realty Mogul 75, LLC.

Lease-up Risks

The Property currently has a 90% occupancy level, and the Sponsor intends to implement a capital improvement plan involving the renovations of certain units and a leasing program in its effort to significantly increase that occupancy level. The Sponsor intends to renovate the common areas and unit interiors at the Property, and then to offer prospective tenants an attractive leasing package and to use both external and internal leasing resources in its efforts to lease up vacant space at the Property. There can be no assurance that such renovations will be consummated on a timely basis, that such work will not materially adversely affect other aspects of the operation of the Property, or that the planned lease-up program will result in the Property increasing its occupancy level at rental rates in line with those projected. Any delays or adverse effects of such renovation work or lease-up efforts could adversely affect the Property’s financial results or business operations and thus the value of the Company’s investment. Although the Sponsor believes that comparable properties are currently achieving rental rates that are in line with those expected from the Property, there can be no assurance that such increased occupancy levels or rental rates will be achieved. Failure to realize such increased rental rates could adversely affect the Property’s financial results or business operations and thus the value of the Company’s investment.

Renovation Risks

The Sponsor intends to renovate the Property in order to be able to demand the significantly higher rents it is projecting to receive at the Property following such renovations. Such renovations are expected to include $8,500 in interior upgrades per unit, in addition to approximately $665,000 in exterior improvements and projected to take up to 32 months to complete. There can be no assurance that such renovations will be consummated on a timely basis or that such work will not materially adversely affect other aspects of the operation of the Property. Any delays or adverse effects of such renovation work could adversely affect the Property’s financial results or business operations and thus the value of the Company’s investment. Following the renovations, the Sponsor expects to be able to rent the apartment units at average rates that would represent an approximate 22.6% increase over the existing average rental rates. Although the Sponsor believes that comparable properties are currently achieving rental rates that are greater than the future rental rates expected from the Property, there can be no assurance that such increased rental rates will be achieved. Failure to realize such increased rental rates could adversely affect the Property’s financial results or business operations and thus the value of the Company’s investment.

Vacancies and Tenant Defaults May Reduce the Property’s Revenues

A vacancy or default of a tenant on its rent will cause the Sponsor Entity to lose the revenue from that unit and, if enough effective vacancies occur, it could cause the Sponsor Entity to have to find an alternative source of revenue to meet any loan payments and other operating expenses for a particular property and it may not be possible to have to find a viable alternative source of revenue. If the company managing the investment property does not employ sufficiently aggressive marketing campaigns and/or lease incentive programs, vacancies may increase and an investment in the Company may be adversely affected.

Coastal Washington Earthquake and Tsunami Risk

The Property lies on the Washington coast of the Pacific Ocean, which is subject to occasional and sometimes destructive earthquakes and tsunamis emanating from various Pacific Rim disturbances. There can be no assurance that a sizable earthquake or tsunami will not cause significant damage to the Property, in which case the business and financial condition of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC, and thus Realty Mogul 75, LLC, would be materially adversely affected.

Interest-Only Loan Period

The loan being used to acquire the Property is expected to have an interest-only period during the first 24 months of the loan term, which means that there will be no reduction in the principal balance during that interest-only period.

Sponsor's Agreements with Affiliates

The Company’s operating agreement does not prohibit, nor require member consent for, agreements between the Sponsor and its affiliates. This could result in such agreements having non-market terms, which may negatively impact the investment’s performance and the returns to investors.

Forward-Looking Statements

Investors should not rely on any forward-looking statements made regarding this opportunity, because such statements are inherently uncertain and involve risks. We use words such as “anticipated”, “projected”, “forecasted”, “estimated”, “prospective”, “believes”, “expects”, “plans”, “future”, “intends”, “should”, “can”, “could”, “might”, “potential”, “continue”, “may”, “will” and similar expressions to identify these forward-looking statements

Illiquid Investment - Transfer Restrictions & No Public Market

The transferability of membership interests in Realty Mogul 75, LLC are restricted both by the operating agreement for that entity and by U.S. federal and state securities laws. In general, investors will not be able to sell or transfer their interests. There is also no public market for the investment interests and none is expected to be available in the future. Persons should not invest if they require any of their investment to be liquid. This is particularly important for persons of retirement age, who should plan carefully to assure that their assets last throughout retirement.

Uncertainty Surrounding Future Sales Price

There is risk associated with the Sponsor being unable to sell the Property as projected.

Interest Rate Risk

The Federal Reserve has methodically reduced the amount of stimulus it was earlier injecting into the U.S. economy, and has signaled that increases in the federal funds rate may be forthcoming. This could potentially lead to rising interest rates offered by other lenders and could have a negative effect on the future value of the Property (since higher loan interest rates might mean that potential buyers would face proportionately higher debt service expenses).

Mortgage Risk

The Sponsor has a signed term sheet with a lender to provide the debt financing for the acquisition of the Property, but there can be no assurance that the lender will complete financing on the rates and terms included in the underwriting being presented in the model for this investment opportunity. All rates and terms of the debt financing are subject to final lender committee approval, including but not limited to a modification in lender held capital reserve requirements that may result in a corresponding movement of certain funds currently projected as being held in a Sponsor controlled capital escrow account.

Management Risk

Investors will be relying solely on the Sponsor for the execution of its business plan. The Sponsor may in turn rely on other key personnel with relevant experience and knowledge, including contractors and consultants. Members of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC (including Realty Mogul 75, LLC) will agree to indemnify the manager in certain circumstances, which may result in a financial burden if any litigation results from the execution of the business plan. While the Sponsor has significant operating experience, Fairgrounds Investors, LLC is a newly formed company and has no operating history or record of performance. Realty Mogul 75, LLC is pursuing a venture capital strategy through its investment in Fairgrounds Investors, LLC, and the manager of Realty Mogul 75, LLC is expected to be treated as an investment adviser exempt from federal or state registration under this strategy.

Manager of Realty Mogul 75, LLC Will Participate in Sponsors' Promote Interest

The manager of Realty Mogul 75, LLC will be entitled to a participation in the value of any excess distributable cash flow and any appreciation of the Property realized upon its sale. This could lead to a potential conflict of interest between the manager and Realty Mogul 75, LLC. Investors must recognize and agree to waive and bear the risk of this conflict of interest.

Uncertain Distributions

The Sponsor cannot offer any assurances that there will be sufficient cash available to make distributions to its members (including Realty Mogul 75, LLC) from either net cash from operations or proceeds from the sale or refinancing of the asset. Sponsor, in its discretion, may retain any portion of such funds for tenant improvements, tenant refurbishments and other lease-up costs or for working capital reserves. Sponsor has chosen to make distributions semi-annually.

Risk of Interest Charges for Sponsor Capital Calls

The amount of capital that may be required by Fairgrounds Investors, LLC from Realty Mogul 75, LLC is unknown, and although Fairgrounds Investors, LLC does not require that its members contribute additional capital to it, it may from time to time request additional funds in the form of loans or additional capital. Realty Mogul 75, LLC does not intend to participate in a capital call if one is requested by Fairgrounds Investors, LLC, and in such event the manager of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC may accept additional contributions from other members of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC. Amounts that the manager of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC advances on behalf of Realty Mogul 75, LLC will be deemed to be a manager loan at an expected interest rate of 10%. Amounts that are contributed by existing or new members will be deemed to be additional capital contributions, in which case Realty Mogul 75, LLC's interest in Fairgrounds Investors, LLC will suffer a proportionate amount of dilution.

Uncertain Exit Timing

Although it is anticipated that the Property will be sold at the end of the expected five year hold period, Realty Mogul 75, LLC will not have full control over the timing of the sale of the Property, and therefore we cannot offer assurances of when the exit will occur. The Sponsor's decision to hold the Property for longer than five years will require a vote of a majority of the then current members of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC. If the Property is not sold after five years, Realty Mogul 75, LLC may have the right (either at that point or at a later time), subject to other contractual limitations such as the loan on the Property and the requirements of the operating agreement of Fairgrounds Investors, LLC, to force a sale of the Property or force a sale of the interests of Realty Mogul 75, LLC in Fairgrounds Investors, LLC.

General Economic and Market Risks

While the Sponsor has conducted significant research to justify the intended rental rates and sales price relative to comparable properties in the market, its best efforts to forecast economic conditions cannot state for certain whether or not rental rates will be achieved or investor sentiment and the capital markets will be favorable to the Property at the intended disposition date. The real estate market is affected by many factors, such as general economic conditions, the availability of financing, interest rates and other factors, including supply and demand for real estate investments, all of which are beyond the control of the Sponsor​​.

The above is not intended to be a full discussion of all the risks of this investment. Please see the Risk Factors in the Issuer Document Package for a discussion of additional risks.
