  • Incredible Location – the property is located in the Southwest Valley just five miles from the I-17 corridor (the second largest employment hub in the Valley) and a short drive away from the I-10 industrial corridor where major global companies have set-up distribution facilities employing thousands of people.
  • High Demand Rental Market – Marble Creek is situated in a high demand rental market with rents increasing more than 7% in the past year

Number of Buildings 22

The Business Plan

The business plan involves increasing the net operating income by more than 40% over a five-year period. The four main drivers to increase the net operating income are:

  • Normalize Rents – The current owners are operating with significant disparity between rents of like-units across the property and Western Wealth Capital intends to reduce that disparity using our proven lease management approach. This action has the potential to bring a further $115,151 in rental income which corresponds to approximately $1,919,187 in increased value to the property based on a 6% cap rate.
  • Washer & Dryer Value-Add Opportunity – Western Wealth Capital plans to install washers and dryers in 200 of the 244 units, enabling an increase of $50 per unit per month of rental income.
  • Interior Upgrade Value-Add Opportunity – There is a huge potential for interior upgrades on this property. Western Wealth Capital plans to complete interior upgrades to 150 of the 244 units over two years. We have modelled a conservative projected $75 per month per unit increase in rental income for upgraded units.
  • Bring rents to market average – Rents are forecast to be increased approximately 4% per year. (Rents in this sub-market have increased by 7% in the last year.)

Investment Summary

Western Wealth Capital XXVII Limited Partnership is proud to offer investors an opportunity to invest in a cash-flowing property in one of North America’s hottest real estate markets.

The Limited Partnership intends to invest in Marble Creek Apartments, a 244-unit apartment community located in the Southwest Valley of the Metropolitan Phoenix Area, in the heart of the industrial fulfillment industry sector. The property is just five miles from the I-17 corridor (the second largest employment hub in the Valley) and a short drive away from the I-10 industrial corridor where major global companies — including Amazon, Target, and PetSmart — have set-up distribution facilities employing thousands of people.

Marble Creek is also just eight miles away from downtown Phoenix, an employment hub of 63,000 people and home to government, legal, and financial institutions as well as Arizona State University, the University of Arizona and the Phoenix Biomedical Campus.

The property is being acquired for approximately $69,000 per unit, well below average comparable market prices. The buildings and property are in excellent condition allowing Western Wealth Capital to realize the asset’s potential using our market expertise and triedand-tested value adding programs as we have with our previous 31 multifamily acquisitions in the Greater Phoenix Area.

Property Details

Marble Creek is a 244 unit multifamily community built in 1985 comprising of 108 one bedroom/ one bath, 48 two bedroom/ one bath and 88 two bedroom/ two bath units. The property demonstrates excellent function and design within the interior living space. The property offers a tremendous value add opportunity as only the model unit has been upgraded and none of the units have washer/dryers. The interiors feature full-sized appliances in a spacious, open plan kitchen/dining room and living area. The units benefit from a private patio or balcony and select units have additional outside storage areas.

Some unique community features in the property include a resort-style swimming pool, spa and sundeck, playground, barbecue area and fitness center. The recent renovations include capital improvements such as a new parking lot, re-plastered swimming pool, perimeter fencing/masonry walls, monument sign enhancements and automatic entry gate. This provides Western Wealth Capital the opportunity to focus on upgrading unit interiors and washer/dryers installations.

Freeway access to Interstate-10 is immediately south of the property and the Loop 101 Highway is less than six miles west of the property, providing easy access to all parts of the metropolitan area and to major employment sources including the Phoenix Warehouse District.

Nearby manufacturing and warehousing employment generators include the Coronado Industrial Park, Santa Fe Phoenix Industrial Park, Payne Industrial District, and the Airhaven Industrial District, which are located four miles east along Grand Avenue, also known as US Highway 60.

Banner-University Medical Center Phoenix is located eight miles east of the property and Banner Estrella Medical is less than six miles west.

Marble Creek is minutes from Arizona State University-West Campus, University of Phoenix-West Campus, and Grand Canyon University. Grand Canyon University (2015 on-campus enrollment: 14,500 and 2015 overall enrollment: 74,200) is aggressively growing their presence as an educational institution. GCU is currently undergoing a campus expansion project that will include adding a variety of residence halls, classroom buildings, dining facilities and student amenities. This has significantly increased the demand for housing in the area which will continue as GCU expands within their 100 acre site.

Debt Structure

Interest Only Variable Rate Loan for two years. Subsequently converted into a 30-year Amortizing Loan.

Investment Management & General Partner

Supplemental Financing

Our unique supplemental financing option allows us to access additional financing proceeds after approximately 18 months if we can increase the net operating income. Traditionally, refinancing includes brokerage & legal fees similar to the costs of acquiring a new property. We have negotiated this supplemental financing option with the lender at a negligible cost compared to a traditional loan. A reappraisal that results in an increased property value will allow the limited partnership to increase the loan and distribute the net loan proceeds to the limited partners.

Risk Factors

Investment in the Partnership involves a high degree of risk and is suitable only for sophisticated investors and requires the financial ability and willingness to accept the high risks and lack of liquidity inherent in an investment in the Partnership. No assurance, representation or warranty can be given that the Partnership’s investment objectives will be achieved or that investors will receive a return of their capital.

An investment in Units is subject to risk. Standard risks applicable to investments of this nature include:

  • No market for Units – There is currently no resale market for the Units and it is not guaranteed that any market will develop. The Units are not transferable without the approval of General Partner and in compliance with applicable securities laws and regulations.
  • Vacancy Rates – The apartment building business relies on a steady supply of good quality tenants. A shortage of quality tenants due to an economic downturn or job losses in a given marketplace could result in higher than expected vacancy and lower than expected revenue.
  • No guaranteed return – The projected returns described in this Investment Summary are not guaranteed. An investment in Units is not suitable for investors who cannot afford to assume significant risks in connection with their investments.
  • Tax matters – Investors should consult their own tax advisors for advice with respect to the tax consequences of an investment in the units based on their particular circumstances.
  • The limited partnership intends to acquire units in an Arizona Limited Partnership (the “LP”). The Arizona Limited Partnership will own all of the issued units of a second pass-through Arizona Limited Partnership, which will be the owner of the property. The limited partnership will own units in the LP. In the event of a refinance of the property the limited partnership will be entitled to participate in the net proceeds of the refinance on a pari passu basis. For more information, investors are advised to contact the principals of the limited partnership and to review all of the various agreements governing the relationships described herein.
