931-932 NE 24th Lane, Cape Coral, FL 33990



Property Overview:

932 NE 24th is located in the same business park as 830 NE 24th Lane, Cape Coral, Florida 33909 and 2621 NE 9th Avenue Cape Coral, FL, 33990.

This part of Cape Coral expanded strongly coming into the Global Financial Crisis, but then stopped dead in its tracks. New construction has re-emerged though and the business park has few vacancies.

The property was purchased as a short sale from the developer, and during due diligence he mentioned that he had spent $1,700,000 in constructing the property. Our purchase price was $480,000 or $34.29 per square foot is a substantial discount, both to the reported construction cost and also the $1,120,000 replacement value for insurance purposes.

There is a single building on the site, which is split into 14 tenant spaces of 1,000 square foot. Each tenant space has an office and a bathroom, with access via a roller door (to warehouse) and glass door (to office).

As it was acquired as a distressed property there will be a period of stabilization which may see some tenants leave causing a spike in vacancy. This is expected to last less than six months as current demand for this sort of commercial property is very strong.

The yield at purchase is unknown as the vendor / bank were unable to provide reliable reports.

Further Notes:

Currency: All numbers are shown in USD. Returns shown have not been translated into Australian dollars as the exchange rate varies. A AUD:USD exchange rate below AUD1:USD1 will increase the percentage return. A AUD:USD exchange rate in excess of AUD1:USD1 will decrease the return.

Management costs: Returns shown above include US management costs, but exclude the management fee charged by the Responsible Entity (1.98% per annum of Gross Assets).

Returns: Returns prior to the property being stabilized are expected to be lower than those forecast above as once off due diligence costs are absorbed, and as less income is received from vacancies as at purchase date. Unless otherwise noted, properties are expected to be stabilized within 12 months of acquisition.
