Here are the most common questions we receive around this opportunity. Don't see your question? Just send us a question below or schedule some time to chat.


Question: Can I sell at any point or do I have to stay in this investment opportunity for 10 years? Answer: We have been able to provide early exits for our LPs in the past without any problem but we provide no guarantees. We recommend that when making your decision, you assume you will hold for the 10 year period.


Question: How will you handle a dynamic environment where interest rates and labor / material pricing is always fluctuating? Answer: Fluctuating Interest rates are definitely something we’re keeping in mind and rate caps are a potential solution to the problem. We also make sure to have enough in interest reserves to handle increasing rates and plan on converting our floating rate construction loan to fixed rate agency debt upon stabilization. But the best solution for this is our relationship with our lenders and our ability to work with them to come to a solution that works for everyone. We don’t want to foreclose on the property and the bank does not want the headache of managing an unfinished development so I know that we will work together on a solution that benefits all. For labor and material pricing, we have a 15% $3M vertical construction contingency and we buy our materials and labor in bulk for better pricing.


Question: Will there be refinances along the way? Answer: We do plan on refinancing out of the bridge debt for the horizontal infrastructure and may refinance additional investor capital out of the opportunity once we have stabilized the development. This way we return investor capital tax free before we hold until the 10 year period. We did not include refinances in our underwriting projections and do not recommend you take refinances into account when making your decision. Any decisions we make we will keep our passive investors’ best interests at heart.


Question: Have you decided on an exit strategy? Answer: Our exit strategy is to hold the investment for 5 years. At this point we will either sell or in order to establish a Legacy as is our mission, buy out existing investors who no longer wish to hold to see the profitable cash flow and instead want a capital event, and hold for a longer period of time.
