Allendale Arms Apartments is a 25-unit Class C property that is 100% occupied. It's located in a highly dense, blue collar part of Houston, TX. Properties in this part of Houston generally observe 100% occupancy. Houston is experiencing solid population growth and Hurricane Harvey has increased overall demand for apartments after people were displaced from their homes and apartments. Current owner is very hands off and let's the maintenance man take care of marketing, leasing, work orders, maintenance, etc. Due to the reliance on this person, this property is running far from optimal performance. Rents are under market. Expenses are not properly controlled. Three Pillars completed rehab on a similar property near by and achieved above market rents setting a new trend for competing properties to follow. Allendale Arms fits squarely in their area of expertise.
The business plan is to reposition the property by performing extensive interior and exterior rehab and put in a better tenant profile and increase rents. TPCG has it's own construction crew that will perform all rehab. They also have their own maintenance team to perform repairs and maintenance. This alone will result in a lot of savings on the repairs and maintenance line item. Furthermore, the water and gas bill can be lowered, as they did on their previous acquisition.

1/24/2018- Contract executed and submitted to title. Money will be sent to title company tomorrow.

Thanks to our strategic partnership with TPCG, we have agreed that they will allow up to 5 chosen individuals to be given the opportunity to be selected as Key Principals (KPs) on this deal. As those selections are made, they will be added here. This is the fastest way for the KPs to get a deal done, build their track record and credibility (read more on Become a Principal page)
We want to make sure that those individuals who are ready to do a deal done get a fair chance. The number of applications has been high, so we will help TPCG the best way we can.
