We run extensive background checks, criminal checks, bad actor checks, and reference checks on sponsors. In addition to never allowing a sponsor with a criminal history / any securities related issue to use the platform, we may also turn down sponsors due to poor reference checks even if background and criminal checks come back clear.
We require unaffiliated sponsors to use an unaffiliated third-party escrow agent. When an investor makes an investment with unaffiliated 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 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.
Our controls include visiting every property (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.
We have robust quality controls with detailed checklists and a review of third-party reports.

Track Record includes transactions the management team completed as investors and Principals of other firms.
The management overview and track record detailed above was provided by the Real Estate Company and has not been verified by Realty Mogul or NCPS.
In this transaction, Realty Mogul investors are to invest in RealtyMogul 123, LLC ("The Company"), which is to subsequently invest in Avon 46, LLC ("The Target"), a limited liability company that will hold title to the Property. Clairmont Group, LLC (the "Real Estate Company") is under contract to purchase the Property for $24.00 million ($146,341 per unit) and the total project cost is expected to be $26.48 million ($161,442 per unit).
The Real Estate Company's business plan is to implement a value-add strategy by completing interior and exterior renovations at the Property. Planned unit interior upgrades will include new appliances, countertops, cabinetry, fixtures, flooring, lighting, and in-unit washers and dryers. Exterior / amenity improvements will consist of painting, lighting, new landscaping, a grill area and fire pit, and patio fences. This strategy assumes a renovation budget of $1.13 million or $6,906/unit and renovation pace of 130 units (79% of total) over 36 months or less (~3.8 units/month), which the Real Estate Company states is a comfortable pace given their track record. Pinnacle will be retained as the property manager and the pro forma financials assume that renovated units will be able to achieve rental premiums of $222 per unit per month upon completion.

The Property is currently 92.9% occupied with in place rents of $1,478 per unit or $1.27 per square foot. The Property is currently managed by Pinnacle Property Management, a third party manager.

Sale and Lease Comparable information provided by CoStar, Axiometrics, Real Capital Analytics, and the Real Estate Company.
Average Rent for Westgate and Addison Mill only reflects one and two bedroom units.
The Property is located just off Waterville Road/CT Route 10, near the intersection of Avon Mountain Road/CT Route 44. Both Route 10 and Route 44 provide connections to Interstates 84 and 91, and CT Routes 9 and 5-15. Avon Mountain Road is the main connection for the affluent Farmington Valley to the employment and recreational attractions in West Hartford and downtown Hartford. Ten minutes away is a Whole Foods Market and The Shoppes at Farmington Valley – an open-air lifestyle-shopping destination with more than 45 specialty stores and unique eateries. Also, just 10 minutes from the Property and located at the intersection of Route 44 and North Main Street is Bishop’s Corner, home to numerous restaurants, major national retailers, and grocers.
Per CoStar, vacancies have risen since The Residences at 299 started delivering units in 3Q14, and are now around 180 basis points above the metrowide level and the submarket’s historical average. Nonetheless, the submarket’s vacancy rate has by no means unraveled. Community resistance to residential development here has long-stymied the addition of new product, which has helped protect fundamentals. Rent growth has decelerated since the submarket posted gains among the highest in the metro in 2Q15, but strong demographics continue to support a hefty premium for 4 & 5 Star product.
The submarket benefits from healthy demographics. Income growth has been strong despite a high starting point, and population growth has been heavily concentrated among Millennials. The job market here is also healthy. Farmington, already home to a spate of global headquarters, added Jackson Laboratory to its employment roster in 2014 and should benefit from the Whitcraft Group’s new contract to supply parts and assemblies to Pratt & Whitney. Both new development and investment activity are largely concentrated in West Hartford, which benefits from an excellent public school system, abundant retail amenities, and could see demand bolstered by the forthcoming addition of the Hartford Line rail service.
Per Axiometrics, effective rent increased 0.1% from $1,505 in 4Q17 to $1,507 in 1Q18. The submarket's annual rent growth rate of 3.6% was above the market average of 1.3%. Out of the six submarkets in the market, the North/West Hartford submarket ranked 4th for quarterly effective rent growth and 2nd for annual effective rent growth for 1Q18. Annual effective rent growth is forecast to be 1.8% in 2018, and average 2.7% through 2018 to 2020. The annual effective rent growth has averaged 2.4% per year since 4Q99. The submarket's occupancy rate increased from 94.2% in 4Q17 to 94.6% in 1Q18, and was up from 93.2% a year ago. The submarket's occupancy rate was below the market average of 95.2% in 1Q18. For the forecast period, the submarket's occupancy rate is expected to increase to 95.3% in 2018 and average 95.8% from 2018 to 2020. The submarket's occupancy rate has averaged 96.4% since 4Q99.

The expected terms of the debt financing are as follows:
- Lender: Santander Bank
- Estimated Proceeds: $18,000,000
- Estimated Rate: 5-year Swap + 135 basis points (~4.26% fixed)
- Amortization: 30 years, with two (2) years of interest-only
- Term: Five (5) years
- Potential Earnout: After 24 months, the Real Estate Company may have the ability to obtain up to $3.0 million in additional proceeds provided that they meet debt yield, debt service coverage, and loan to value constraints. A loan earnout of $2.5 million has been assumed in Realty Mogul's underwriting and included in the target IRR and cash-on-cash calculations.
There can be no assurance that a lender will provide debt on the rates and terms noted above, or at all. All rates and terms of the debt financing are subject to lender approval, including but not limited to possible increases in capital reserve requirements for funds to be held in a lender-controlled capital reserve account.
The Target will make distributions to investors (The Company and Real Estate Company, collectively, the "Members") as follows:
Operating Income, Refinance, and Sales Proceeds
- To the Members, pari passu until each has received an 8.0% IRR,
- 75.0% / 25.0% (75.0% to Members / 25.0% to the Real Estate Company) to a 15.0% IRR,
- 60.0% / 40.0% (60.0% to Members / 40.0% to the Real Estate Company) of excess cash flows and appreciation thereafter.
Note that these distributions will occur after the payment of the Company's liabilities (loan payments, operating expenses and other fees as set forth in the LLC agreement, in addition to any member loans or returns due on member loans).
The Company will distribute 100% of its share of excess cash flow (after expenses) to the members of The Company (including the Realty Mogul investors). The manager of The Company will receive a portion of the Real Estate Company's promote interest. Distributions are expected to start in June 2019 and are projected to continue on a quarterly basis thereafter. These distributions are at the discretion of the Real Estate Company, who may decide to delay distributions for any reason, including maintenance or capital reserves.

The above presentation is based upon information supplied by the Real Estate Company or others. Realty Mogul, Co., RM Manager, LLC, and The Company, 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.
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.
Non-Transferability of Securities
The transferability of membership interests in The Company 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. Moreover, the estimated investment holding period described herein is only a projection, and there can be no assurance when or if an investment may be liquidated. 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.
Capital Call Risk
The amount of capital that may be required by the Target from the Company is unknown, and although the Target does not require that the Company and its members contribute additional capital to it, it may from time to time request additional funds in the form of loans or sell additional equity. The Company does not intend to participate in a capital call if one is requested by the Target, and in such event the manager of the Target may accept additional contributions from other members of Target or from new members. In the event that the manager of Target advances any capital on behalf of the Company, it will be deemed to be a manager loan at an interest rate that cannot be determined at this time. Amounts that are contributed by existing or new members will be deemed to be additional capital contributions, in which case the Company's interest in Target will potentially suffer a proportionate amount of dilution.
All funds from investors will be held in a non-interest bearing escrow account with Broker-Dealer as escrow agent for the benefit of the investors in accordance with Rule 15c2-4 under the Exchange Act. All investor funds will be transmitted directly by wire or electronic funds transfer via ACH to the escrow account maintained by the escrow agent per the instructions in the Subscription Agreement. Upon certification by Broker-Dealer and acceptance by the Company that all contingencies have been met, the investor’s funds will be promptly transmitted to the Company. If the contingencies fail to be satisfied during the offering period, we will instruct the Broker-Dealer to return all funds to the investors without interest, deduction, or setoff, and all of the obligations of the investor hereunder shall terminate.
Interest-Only Loan Period
The Target is expected to obtain a senior loan (the “Loan”) to, in part, acquire the apartment community. The Loan is anticipated 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.
Connecticut Hurricane Risks
Connecticut is located near the Atlantic Ocean, which is subject to frequent and sometimes destructive hurricanes. There can be no assurance that a sizable hurricane will not cause significant damage to the Property, in which case the business and financial condition of the Target, and thus the Company, would be materially adversely affected. There is no guarantee that the Target has or will obtain hurricane or flood insurance for the Property.
As of June 2018, the Property had a 92.9% occupancy level, and the Target intends to implement a capital improvement plan involving the interior and exterior renovation of the Property, and a leasing program in its effort to add value to the Property. The Target intends to renovate all or some of the units within the Property and increase the current rental rates of such renovated units. There can be no assurance that, (i) the renovations will be consummated on a timely basis, (ii) the renovations will be completed satisfactorily, (iii) such work will not materially adversely affect other aspects of the operation of the Property, and (iv) the planned rental rate increase will have favorable results to meet the goals the Target projected. Any delays or negative results of the renovation work or rental increase efforts could adversely affect the Property’s financial results or occupancy levels, including its business operations and thus the value of the Company’s investment.
The Target anticipates that present cash reserves, together with the net proceeds from the sale of Membership Interests in this offering, will be sufficient to finance operating costs and expenses for a period of at least twelve (12) months following the closing of this offering, assuming that all of the Membership Interests offered hereby are sold in accordance with the terms hereof. However, the Target may need additional capital to continue and expand operations and to implement business plan and strategy, as contemplated in this offering. If operations expand faster or at a higher rate than currently anticipated or revenues generated by the Target are lower than projected, additional capital may be required sooner than expected to fund the business plan. There is no assurance or guarantee that additional capital will be available when needed by the Target, or that such capital will be available under terms acceptable to the Target or on a timely basis. If additional funds are raised through the issuance of equity, convertible debt, or similar Membership Interests of the Company, the percentage of ownership of the Company by the Company's Members will be reduced, the Company's Members may experience dilution, and such Membership Interests may have rights or preferences senior to those of the Company's Membership Interest issued pursuant to this offering. There is no assurance that additional financing will be available on terms favorable to Target or at all. If adequate funds are not available or are not available on acceptable terms, the ability to fund the business plan would be limited significantly. This limitation could harm substantially the business, results of operations, and financial condition.
