About Elevate Apartments & Townhomes
Elevate Apartments & Townhomes is another great opportunity to acquire a very well-located asset that will benefit from a moderate renovation value-add program.
Pax Properties was able to buy this 126-apartment community in Oklahoma City at a significant discount, acquiring it through a loan assumption, paying less than what the previous owners purchased it for in 2016. This is unheard of in today’s highly competitive, inflationary, rapidly rising valuations environment.
Strong ROI is supported by a substantial rent delta with competing submarket properties and achievable through market-accepted upgrades including new appliances, fixtures, flooring, and finishes. Proven opportunities for revenue increases and decreasing expenses through renovating, repositioning, and rebranding gives us an excellent investment opportunity.
Given the location and amenities that include an indoor pool, gym area, clubhouse, and conference rooms which can be converted to highly sought after work-space, there is a huge amount of room to grow the rents. For example, a neighboring complex rents for about $200 higher post renovations and we feel our units once repositioned and rebranded will be best-in-class and demand higher rents.
Elevate is in an increasingly popular neighborhood and prime location near downtown. Nearby is heavy street traffic with Barnes and Noble, Home Depot, and Chick Fil A (which trade at high-valuation 4 caps) as neighbors.
