Business Plan

In this transaction, RealtyMogul.com investors will invest in Realty Mogul 78, LLC. Realty Mogul 78, LLC will subsequently invest in BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC, the entity that will indirectly hold title to the Property.  

Upon acquisition, the Sponsor’s business plan is to complete upgrades to the clubhouse and fitness center, install washer dryers in 183 units, as well as renovate 30 unit interiors. The seller has completed upgrades on 23 units which are currently achieving rental premiums of $50-125 over unrenovated units, which the Sponsor intends to continue to capitalize on. The level of improvements to the unit interiors will be determined on a case-by-case basis, but will typically include new floors, painting cabinets, lighting, appliances and re-glazed bathtubs. The Sponsor believes the current out of state ownership has not given the asset the appropriate attention and sees an opportunity to increase value through continuing a targeted renovation program as well as implementing increased hands on management. 

Per conversations with the on-site manager and residents, as well as studying competitive properties, the Sponsor believes that installation of washer dryer units will provide the greatest increase in value to the asset, as the Property currently only has one laundry facility on site, causing many residents to have to travel to one of the nearby offsite laundromats. Including the 30 units slated for renovations, the Sponsor intends to install a total of 183 washer dryer units in the 2x1 units. The Sponsor has selected the 2x1 units to receive the washer dryers, as the bathrooms in those floor plans have a vacant space adjacent to the vanity which will allow a stackable washer dryer to fit with no need to build a ‘’box’’ or other housing unit to hold the appliances. The required water supply is located next to the installation locations, and the electrical panels, which were recently upgraded to allow for higher amperage, are located in the hallway outside of the bathroom doors. The buildings at the Property are not set up to allow for proper ventilation for dryers on the first or second floors, so the Sponsor intends to use a lint trap kit to capture the exhaust from units on the first and second floors. Those units work by having the exhaust run into the box where a pool of water collects the expelled lint. The onsite maintenance staff will be responsible for making sure there is an appropriate level of water in the boxes and this will be added to the maintenance schedule. The Sponsor is targeting rental increases for the 30 renovated units averaging $115/unit, a 16% increase over average in-place rents for those units and is projecting a $55 increase for the units receiving only washer dryers, an 8% increase from in place. The Sponsor intends to complete all renovations within the first two years of ownership, and intends to sell the Property within seven years.

Disclaimers/FAQs
Disclaimers

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 78, 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 BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC (including Realty Mogul 78, 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, BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC is a newly formed company and has no operating history or record of performance. Realty Mogul 78, LLC is pursuing a venture capital strategy through its investment in BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC, and the manager of Realty Mogul 78, LLC is expected to be treated as an investment adviser exempt from federal or state registration under this strategy.


Manager of Realty Mogul 78, LLC Will Participate in Sponsors' Promote Interest

The manager of Realty Mogul 78, 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 78, 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 78, 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 quarterly.


Risk of Interest Charges for Sponsor Capital Calls

The amount of capital that may be required by BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC from Realty Mogul 78, LLC is unknown, and although BH Chestnut Ridge, 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 78, LLC does not intend to participate in a capital call if one is requested by BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC, and in such event the manager of BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC may accept additional contributions from other members of BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC. Amounts that the manager of BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC advances on behalf of Realty Mogul 78, 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 78, LLC's interest in BH Chestnut Ridge, 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 seven (7) year hold period, Realty Mogul 78, 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. If the Property is not sold after seven (7) years, Realty Mogul 78, 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 BH Chestnut Ridge, LLC, to force a sale of the Property or force a sale of the interests of Realty Mogul 78, LLC in BH Chestnut Ridge, 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.


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.


Lease-up Risks

The Property currently has a 92% occupancy level, and the Sponsor intends to implement a capital improvement plan involving light renovation of the clubhouse and fitness center, approximately 30 unit interiors, and installation of washers and dryers in 183 units in its effort to maintain and/or increase that occupancy level. 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 plan will result in the Property maintaining its occupancy level at rental rates in line with those projected. Any delays or adverse effects of such work 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 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.


Tornado Risk

Jeffersontown, Kentucky lies in the northern part of the state of Kentucky, in an area which can be subject to destructive tornadoes. There is no guarantee that the Sponsor Entity will obtain tornado insurance. If no insurance is obtained, a tornado could have a material adverse impact on the Sponsor Entity, and thus the Company. Further, even if tornado insurance is obtained, there can be no assurance that a tornado will not cause significant damage to the Property or otherwise interrupt its operations in a manner not covered by the Property’s insurance, in which case the business and financial condition of the Sponsor Entity.
