Minimal deferred maintenance, convenient management and robust cash flow!

Tax Abatement Bonus- The property is mostly a low-income project with a regulatory agreement with the California Tax Allocation Committee with 25 years remaining. The building qualifies with the state and county and receives a welfare exemption that allows a secure property tax waiver on all ad valorem taxes, only bonds and assessments are paid. This increases the capitalization rate and cash on cash return beyond competing buildings for a greater return. This building provides a great hedge against inflation and recession. Many of the rents are government guaranteed which allow for increases as high as 10% per year. Being partially exempt from rent control allows for an infinite return on investment.

Collectively, the above sales price is based on a $23,799,000 sale of the apartment building & $5,995,000 sale of the entitled lot. The entitled lot located at the rear of the property could potentially be subdivided with a lot line adjustment and approved for 127 units development.
