Investment Strategy

Avistone’s primary objectives are to operate the property efficiently, distribute any available cash flow monthly to investors and create value by increasing occupancy and rental rates over the next several years given the strength of the region’s flex/industrial market. The existing rental rates at the property are approximately 8% under market. To facilitate bringing rental rates to market, on-site improvements will incorporate correcting deferred maintenance issues, as well as renovating exterior common areas including landscaping and painting. The successful execution of the plan will ultimately enhance the property’s net operating income and create the potential for property value appreciation over a 3- to 5-year anticipated investment holding period, although there is no assurance objectives will be realized.
