Investment Details

Brennan Investment Group ("Sponsor" or "BIG") is under contract to purchase 8600 Jameel Road and 12705 Kirkwood St. (the “Portfolio” or "Properties") for $10,375,000 ($78.01/sf) representing an 8.55% cap rate on projected Year 1 net operating income. For the last 15 years the Portfolio has been institutionally owned by the publicly traded First Industrial REIT (NYSE: FR). Troy MacMane, co-founder of BIG and located in BIG's Houston office, was previously employed by First Industrial and charged with managing their investment portfolio including the Jameel and Kirkwood assets.  Troy has nearly a decade of experience with the assets to be acquired.

Realty Mogul investors are being provided the opportunity to invest in Realty Mogul 47, LLC.  Realty Mogul 47, LLC will be making an investment in Jameel Kirkwood LLC, which will hold title to the Property. Through Jameel Kirkwood LLC​, the Sponsor will handle all aspects of the investment including acquiring the property, implementing capital improvements as necessary, property management, leasing, and ultimately selling the property.

Although the buildings have been well maintained, the Sponsor has budgeted $80,000 for minor capital improvements to increase the attractiveness of the Property as necessary. The Sponsor intends to leverage their prior experience with the assets and the market by managing rollover over the hold period. The Sponsor has underwritten an 8% general vacancy factor (in addition to turnover and absorption vacancy), and assumes that tenants renew at a 65% probability.  The project should benefit from four years of interest-only debt, but the main driver of value creation is the spread between the exit cap and going in cap rates. The Sponsor believes they were able to tie up the property at a cap rate that would not have been feasible a year ago, as historically, cap rates were in the 8% to sub-8% range (as indicated by the sales comps), but expects that cap rate levels will normalize by the end of the hold period. 

The Sponsor plans to hold the property for four (4) years before exiting the investment, but the hold period could be longer or shorter. Realty Mogul investors have the opportunity to participate as equity stakeholders and earn a share of the cash-flow and appreciation. Investors may expect to receive quarterly updates and distributions, with the first distribution expected in March 2016 and on a quarterly basis thereafter.

Investment Highlights

  • Well Maintained/Institutionally Owned
  • 94% Occupied With In Place Cash Flow   
  • Well Located: Both properties are strategically located within close proximity to major highways and are located on hard corners at the front of their respective parks
  • Diversified Tenant Base With Limited Exposure to the Energy Markets

  • Sponsor Has Over a Decade of Experience With the Assets and has a Local Office in Houston
  • Rental Rate Growth: Industrial rental rates are projected to increase in Houston and in Texas over the next couple of years.  According to CBRE  Houston Industrial MarketView Q2 2015, economists "expect 4.3% annual average rent growth through 2017". The included pro-forma by comparison assumes a more conservative annual growth rate of 1.5% in year 2 and then 3% thereafter.
  • Basis Compares Favorably to Comps and is Below Estimated Replacement Cost ($115-125 PSF per conversations with market participants):

The investment will be structured as the purchase of limited liability company interests in Realty Mogul 47, LLC, which will in turn purchase interests in Jameel Kirkwood LLC​.  Jameel Kirkwood LLC will hold title to the Property and is managed by the Sponsor.  Realty Mogul 47, LLC is a special purpose entity pursuing a venture capital strategy, and will be advised by RM Manager, LLC, an exempt reporting adviser and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Realty Mogul, Co.

Risks and Risk Mitigation*

  • 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 47, 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.
  • Interest Only Loan: The loan being used to acquire the Property is interest-only for four years of operation, which means that there will be no reduction in the principal balance during that period. 
  • Debt With a Ten-Year Term: The loan on the Property is expected to have a term of ten years and will require defeasance to prepay the Loan. This means that a potential buyer will likely need to assume the loan. RM has underwritten the 1% assumption fee as being borne 50/50 by the Sponsor/buyer. At the projected exit price, the loan LTV is expected to be 60%. ​ 
  • Local Market Conditions May Impact Rental Rates: Local conditions may significantly affect occupancy, rental rates, and the operating performance of a property. Such risks include (but are not limited to): (i) plant closings, industry slowdowns and other facts that affect the local economy; (ii) an oversupply of, or a reduced demand for, similar properties; (iii) a decline in household formation or employment or lack of employment growth, (iv) laws that could inhibit the ability to raise rents or to sell a property; and (v) other economic conditions that might cause an increase in operating expenses, such as increases in property taxes, utilities, compensation of on-site personnel and routine maintenance.
  • 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 Jameel Kirkwood LLC (including Realty Mogul 47, 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, Jameel Kirkwood LLC is a newly formed company and has no operating history or record of performance.   Realty Mogul 47, LLC is pursuing a venture capital strategy through its investment in Jameel Kirkwood LLC, and the manager of Realty Mogul 47, LLC is expected to be treated as an investment adviser exempt from federal or state registration under this strategy.
  • Manager of Realty Mogul 47, LLC Will Participate in Sponsors' Promote Interest:The manager of Realty Mogul 47, 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 47, 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 47, 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 Jameel Kirkwood LLC from Realty Mogul 47, LLC is unknown, and although Jameel Kirkwood 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 47, LLC does not intend to participate in a capital call if one is requested by Jameel Kirkwood LLC, and in such event the manager of Jameel Kirkwood LLC may accept additional contributions from other members of Jameel Kirkwood LLC.  Amounts that the manager of Jameel Kirkwood LLC advances on behalf of Realty Mogul 47, LLC will be deemed to be a manager loan at an interest rate of 16%.  Amounts that are contributed by existing or new members will be deemed to be additional capital contributions, in which case Realty Mogul 47, LLC's interest in Jameel Kirkwood 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 four (4) year hold period, Realty Mogul 47, 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 five (5) years Realty Mogul 47, LLC has the right to cause a sale of the Portfolio.​
  • 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 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 Properties are located in the northwest and southwest Houston industrial submarkets.   

8600 Jameel Road is a four-building multi-tenant industrial property comprising 87,099 SF that was built in 1980. Situated on 5.86 acres, the Property located on the corner of Jameel Road and Fairbanks North Houston Road nearby US Highway 290 and US Highway 8 (Houston’s outer loop).

Houston Market Overview

According to CBRE, the overall Houston industrial market contains more than 487 million SF of inventory, and as of the end of the 2nd quarter 2015 has an availability rate of 7.0%. Overall rents were unchanged in Q2 2015; current average monthly asking gross rates per sq. ft. citywide are $0.69 per month. Still, these rates have steadily increased during the prior 12 months ending Q2 2015 with a 4.5% escalation since Q2 2014. Going forward, CBRE Econometric Advisors expects 4.3% annual average rent growth through 2017 as oil price impacts are limited to those Houston submarket’s most exposed to the inverse volatility between the upstream and downstream energy sectors – i.e.: the Southeast and South submarkets. The average quoted gross monthly rent rates are $0.48 per sq. ft. for warehouse/ distribution space; $0.86 per sq. ft. for flex/service space; and $0.73 per sq. ft. for manufacturing space with flex making the lion’s share of the gains this year. Class A and new product rent will remain steady while, interestingly enough, older product has been seeing a slight increase during the economic recovery. Still the tax man cometh: Houston’s Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD) has started mailing property value notices to commercial and industrial property owners. The chief appraiser has advised that Houston’s booming economy will continue to have an impact on property values for 2015 and they will continue to increase this year. Even in the face of shrinking oil prices and subsequent, the Harris County economy in general is doing very well. HCAD reports that warehouses also have seen an increase in value because the city’s industrial growth is directly related to its transportation infrastructure. Warehouse values increased 23% in 2015, compared with 14% in the 2014 tax year. Increased trade through the county has continued to strengthen Houston’s industrial market and warehouse sector. 

The above information came from the Q2 2015 CBRE Houston Industrial Marketview Report. The demographic information to the right was provided by and is presented with statistics for Jameel/Kirkwood.
