Key Positives

  • Inland is underwriting this investment conservatively, with Effective Gross Revenue and Operating Expenses growing at the same rate.

  • Inland has used reasonable operating assumptions compared to the valuations completed by a Third Party Appraiser.

Key Risks to Consider

  • The CAP rate on this investment is low (5.28%).

  • The tenant, Jewel Osco, has a right of first refusal on the properties. This could hinder a potential sale and may lead to potential buyers not making an offer on the property. Additionally it may slow down the sales process during negotiations with all parties.

  • The tenant at the property is not investment grade. They have a lease guaranteed by Albertsons, who has a credit rating of Ba2 from Moody's, this is also non-investment grade.

  • There is  no Master Lease on the investment. In a DST re-leasing is not allowed, and therefore a Master Tenant is necessary should one of the tenants choose to vacate the property.

  • Inland has proposed a Cash Out Refinance structure for this investment. Although not guaranteed, should Inland refinance and return capital to investors the IRS could disallow an investors exchange. The investors are opening themselves to significant risk of audit and IRS intervention in this investment.
