Cash Flow Equities A Multi-Family Syndication
CFE focuses on Calif. Coastal non-rent controlled markets. In these geographic markets the focus is strictly on B and C assets, A assets being newer projects with very high rents often in mainly urban core areas renting to millennials. The majority of purchases are class C buildings that have been owned long term by mom and pop type individuals. These 50’s,60’s, 70’s and 80’s projects are very well located as the original developers had their pick of the prime locations. Additionally density of units back then was very low and these projects have a lot of open space with pleasant landscaping. Unlike multi-story concrete jungles built today. Also earlier construction featured much larger units with larger bedrooms etc. Again unlike micro units being built today. The common denominator of all assets of this type purchased today by CFE is that nothing has been done to them since they were built. Thus an upscale renovation of these assets creates an arguably more appealing environment than even a new project for a family with children. CFE focuses on acquiring well located class C assets and thru extensive exterior and interior renovations transforms them into class B assets.
(Class B and C differ in that C tenants can barely make rent each month i.e no margin for error. Class B on the other hand are lifelong renters but they do have significant discretionary income and they appreciate a pristine renovated complex and will pay significantly higher rent for this lifestyle upgrade) The Key to the Class B & C assets in these Calif. Coastal markets are the barriers to entry.
First rents would have to increase 300% to justify new construction; second homeowners in these markets do not want more apts in their neighborhood; and lastly there is almost zero land anywhere in these dense coastal markets zoned for multi-family construction. In Gordon’s opinion these smaller existing apt complexes are irreplaceable assets. All complexes’ are 100% full except for turnover and in the future the majority of increase in population will be living in apartments not purchasing homes
