Proven Value-Add Opportunity at Attractive Basis: 68 units have been renovated or partially renovated with new appliances, upgraded HVAC, electrical, & plumbing, resurfaced/replaced tubs, new flooring, paint, hardware, fixtures, blinds, vanities, countertops, and cabinets. Upgraded units are achieving a $125-$200 rent premium, and rent comparables and high occupancy suggest units could be pushed to $900 per month.
