St. Clair Holdings - Student Quarters

St. Clair Holdings is a real estate investment company focused on a combination of opportunistic acquisitions and value-added programs that lead to high yield investment opportunities throughout the Southeast and Midwest United States.  The firm focuses on three strategic investment areas: student housing, residential development, and apartments.  St. Clair has approximately $400 million in assets between its three investment strategies.

Student Quarters is St. Clair Holdings' student housing investment arm.  They seek to acquire well-located, often underperforming, boutique properties within walking distance to universities in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest and reposition them to create new campus portfolios. Through efficient management and a student-centric focus, Student Quarters offers choice-located housing options that are affordable and practical for students and profitable for investors. The current partnership between St. Clair and Student Quarters was commenced in 2012.  See examples of other Student Quarters projects here.

Investment Details

Student Quarters (the "Sponsor") plans to acquire and increase the net operating income of The Park, The Heights at 1301 and Fulton Place (together the "Portfolio").  The Park was acquired October 15, 2015, the Heights at 1301 was acquired on October 29, 2015, and Fulton Place is anticipated to close on or before February 29, 2016.  It is anticipated that investors in Realty Mogul 52, LLC will invest in the Portfolio by year-end 2015.

Greensboro, NC - Fulton Place and The Park

The Sponsor’s business plan for Fulton Place and The Park is focused on driving revenues primarily through an improved property management strategy and a selected capital improvement expenditure plan ($1,025 per bed at Fulton Place and $1,190 per bed at The Park). 

The Sponsor believes that the current property manager, who is smaller and not student housing focused, is missing extensive additional revenue opportunities (such as renting on a "by bed" basis as opposed to a "by apartment" basis) and doesn't have the necessary scale to minimize expenses.  The Sponsor intends to increase net operating income by driving revenue through the new, by-bed leasing approach as well as other revenue generators, such as a furniture rental program, geared specifically towards college students, while minimizing operational costs and implementing the capital program.  The Sponsor also anticipates being able to charge tenants for certain utility expenses which are currently inclusive in tenant rental rates later in the hold period, after the capital expenditure plan has been implemented at the properties. 

To help implement the business plan the Sponsors have chosen Peak Campus, the property management service whom has systematically served as the sole property manager provider for the Sponsor.   Peak, who is already the property manager at the Johnson City property, is the second largest student housing property manager in the US, with $2.6 billion in student housing assets under management.  Peak is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, as is the Sponsor, allowing them to interact frequently and giving the Sponsor persistent clarity as to the execution of the business plans for the assets in its portfolio. 

Johnson City, TN - The Heights at 1301

The business plan for The Heights at 1301, which is the closest non-campus student housing to campus at East Tennessee State University, is focused on making select capital improvements to drive rents.  The Sponsor views the project as currently efficiently managed for its physical state, as the Sponsor’s preferred property manager Peak Campus already manages the property. 

The asset is one of three student housing assets in the market.  The other two assets currently rent at $100 - $135 per bed above the Property, per the Sponsor.  The Sponsor plans to implement a modest capital expenditure plan ($850 per bed) and push rents an average of 5.5% per year for the first three years of the hold period, before stabilizing in year three at $462 per bed, growing rents at 3.0% into perpetuity thereafter.  Average rents per bed were $392 for the 2013-2014 academic year and $412 for the 2015-2016 academic year. 

The Sponsor plans to hold the Portfolio for five (5) 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 June 2016 and on a quarterly basis thereafter.

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 52, 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.
  • 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 the investment (including Realty Mogul 52, 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.  Realty Mogul 52, LLC is pursuing a venture capital strategy through its investment in the Portfolio, and the manager of Realty Mogul 52, LLC is expected to be treated as an investment adviser exempt from federal or state registration under this strategy.
  • Manager of Realty Mogul 52, LLC Will Participate in Sponsors' Promoted Interest:The manager of Realty Mogul 52, 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 52, 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 52, 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, in its sole and absolute discretion. 
  • Risk of Interest Charges for Sponsor Capital Calls: The amount of capital that may be required by the Portfolio from Realty Mogul 52, LLC is unknown, and although the investment 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 52, LLC does not intend to participate in a capital call if one is requested by the Sponsor of the investment, and in such event the Sponsor of the investment may accept additional contributions from other members of the investment.  Amounts that the Sponsor or other members of the investment advance on behalf of Realty Mogul 52, LLC will be deemed to be a manager loan at an interest rate of 18% or a 1.5x equity contribution.  In either case, Realty Mogul 52, LLC's interest in the investment would suffer a dilutive effect.  To create a buffer against a capital call Realty Mogul 52, LLC will overraise equity by $10,000 and set aside such money in a capital account for protection against potential future capital calls.  Should such money never be needed, it will be returned to Realty Mogul 52, LLC investors upon the disposition of the Portfolio.
  • Risk of Discounted Equity Buyout: Realty Mogul 52, LLC investors equity is being used to satisfy a portion of the Sponsor's equity requirement for the acquisition of the Portfolio, per the Sponsor's operating agreement with Harrison Street.  In the operating agreement between the Sponsor and Harrison Street, the Sponsor is subject to Bad Boy provisions (such as, waste, fraud, misappropriation, bankruptcy, violation of Single Purpose Entity covenants, or incurring subordinate debt without lender's consent). As such, should the Sponsor be found guilty of Bad Boy acts by Harrison Street, Realty Mogul 52, LLC investors could potentially be bought out of the investment at 75% of Fair Market Value, per the operating agreement between the Sponsor and Harrison Street.  Realty Mogul 52, LLC investors' 6.0% participation the the Sponsor's promote is intended to compensate them for this risk.
  • Student Housing is Subject to Significant Capital Requirements: Due to the nature of student tenants, there is historically a need for significantly greater capital reserves in student housing than standard multifamily projects. The Sponsor has budgeted $150 per bed per year in reserves to account for this.
  • Risk Associated with College Populations & Dormitory Construction: As the tenant base of the Portfolio is primarily students, should either school have a decline in population or closure due to a decrease in funding or any other factor, it could adversely effect the ability to lease the Portfolio.  Alternatively, should either of the colleges elect to construct significant new on-campus student housing options it could also adversely effect the ability to lease the Portfolio.
  • Uncertain Refinancing Debt Terms: The Portfolio is being acquired with the use of a subscription line of credit to satisfy the debt requirements for both The Heights at 1301 and The Park.  Fulton Place is being acquired with assumed debt which will mature during the expected hold period.  While the Sponsor has term sheets for loans on both The Park and The Heights at 1301 which are favorable to underwritten projections, future market volatility or interest rate increases could lead to refinance loan terms for each of the three properties in the Portfolio being inferior to underwritten projections.  
  • Uncertain Exit Timing: Although it is anticipated that the Property will be sold at the end of the expected five (5) year hold period, Realty Mogul 52, 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. 
  • Uncertainty of Fulton Place Acquisition: As of date of this offering, the assumption of the Freddie Mac loan on the Fulton Place property by the Sponsor and the institutional LP partner has yet to be approved by Freddie Mac.  Should this assumption not be approved in time to acquire Fulton Place on or before February 29, 2016 then the property will not be acquired as part of the Portfolio.
  • RM 52, LLC Investors Could Experience Cash Drag on a Portion of their Investment in the Portfolio:  Should the Fulton Place property not be acquired by the investment date of RM 52, LLC in the Portfolio, RM 52, LLC investors will experience cash drag on the investment dollars which would have otherwise been invested in the Fulton Place property.  These dollars will not begin to count towards RM 52, LLC investors' IRR waterfall calculation until such time as they are invested in the Fulton Place property.  Should the Fulton Place property not be acquired by the Portfolio on or before February 29, 2016, then RM 52, LLC investors will have their principal investment which would have been invested in the Fulton Place property returned as a cash distribution.
  • 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​​.
