The Business Plan

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

  • Increase Occupancy – Using Western Wealth Capital’s proven systems for marketing rental apartments, Western Wealth Capital intends to increase occupancy to an average of 93% from the seller’s current new building lease-up level of approximately 70%. Western Wealth Capital negotiated an agreement with the seller to double their monthly marketing budget and apply our marketing system (at the seller’s cost) during the closing period. Under this approach, leasing has accelerated from an average of 12 leases per month to 24 leases the past 30 days. Current average occupancy in this submarket is 97% (source: Costar, Verde Dimora | Power Road & McKellips Road).
  • Collect RUBS (Ratio Utility Billing System) Income – All current leasing contracts include provisions to charge RUBS, where tenants are required to pay a proportion of the property’s utilities. Current ownership has not been exercising their contractual rights to charge RUBS however Western Wealth Capital will. This action alone has the potential to bring a further $75,000 in annual income.
  • Bring Rents To Market Levels – Once targeted occupancy rates have been obtained Western Wealth Capital intends to increase rents to current market levels and then plans to increase rents by 3% per year starting in year three of ownership. (Rents in this in this sub-market have increased by 8.8% in the last year according to Colliers International.)

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 and 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.
