The site mix consists of 43 resident-owned homes, 14 leased homes, 1 rent to own home, 10 vacant inventory homes, 1 employee site, 126 vacant sites and 39 abandoned homes. The average site rent is $274 after pass throughs, which is $32 below the average market rent, and the average rental rate is $356
An investor with a future vision of value will recognize Oakleaf’s value at 90% stabilized could potentially be in the $6.2M range, which is referenced in the underwriting. The current ownership has been focused on other properties in the portfolio over the past 10 years that have debt on them. This led Oakleaf’s current condition which creates a tremendous opportunity for a focused investor with a game plan in turning the property around.
An investor could immediately add approximately $69,480 annually to the top line by renting the 10 vacant inventory homes ($579 x 10 x 12). In addition, if an investor focused on getting titles to the 39 abandoned homes, an additional $270,972 annually could be added to the top line before bringing in any new homes.
