Tenant Information & Lease Terms

Leases are signed on an individual basis at multifamily properties. The property manager will negotiate terms on a case by case basis. Leases are generally signed on a 12 month basis; however, this may differ for each tenant. Leases at this property can be month to month and will automatically renew unless terminated.

Key Positives

  • The local area has strong demographics with near 500,000 residents in the 5-mile radius. This area has also shown potential for growth as projected growth is 1.76% until 2021.

Key Risks to Consider

  • The property is in an area that has ability for new construction to be completed. This will increase the competition in the local market that could affect occupancy at the subject property. The appraiser of the property stated that there are over 1,200 units that are planned to be built in the local market. This is an increase of just under 13%

  • Passco is projecting an increase of 12% Net Operating Income compared to the trailing 12 months at the property. This is an aggressive underwriting assumption and may be hard to attain.
