Introduction to Ridge Point Apartments

Lucas Fertitta, Director of Acquisitions
This is a 168-unit Class B property that is 96% occupied. It's located in a highly dense, middle income part of Houston, TX. It is very close to our other properties and we have a solid understanding of the sub-market.
Occupancy: Properties in this part of Houston generally observe 90%+ occupancy. Houston is experiencing solid population growth and Class B & C is generally recession proof. In a good economy, Class B & C occupancy is strong and maintains steady rates during economic troughs as people downgrade from Class B to Class C. Current owner is very unsophisticated in managing the operations, rehabbing units and optimizing revenue.
Business Plan: What makes this a great acquisition is that rents can be increased by executing a rehab plan similar to what we have done on our other properties. Given that TPCG understands this market well, the executional risk is greatly reduced. TPCG already owns multiple properties in this market. This will allow the salary, wages and office expense to be spread across those properties making our operational expense lower than what a solo owner would run it for. Expenses are not properly controlled. Three Pillars completed rehab on a similar properties near by and achieved above market rents setting a new trend for competing properties to follow. This property fits squarely in their area of expertise.
The business plan is to reposition the property to a Class B+ by performing extensive interior and exterior rehab, putting in a better tenant profile and increasing 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 bill can be lowered, as they did on their previous acquisition.
