Proven Value-Add on 484 Unit Offering
Current ownership has implemented a value-add program, renovating 22% of units to “deluxe” status. In-place leases on deluxe units are achieving a $193 premium over non-renovated units, and over the past 30 days, leases on the deluxe units have grown to $1,150+ 1BR, $1,375+ 2BR, and $1,675+ 3BR. This programmatic value-add has fueled a 36% increase to in-place rents over the last 18 months , while still leaving a substantial runway for new ownership to grow revenue over the 484 combined units.
Surging Non-Renovated Renewals Prove Depth of Demand
While the value-add program has been a leading factor in revenue growth, renewals on non-renovated units are growing rents significantly as well. These renewals have averaged 21% and 27% increases at Grove and Preserve during the same 18 month period, showcasing the depth of rental demand for these assets. Ultimately, leasing momentum under current ownership has allowed monthly revenue to climb from less than $400,000 to over $560,000.
