This portfolio offers an excellent opportunity to acquire eight stabilized assets in a top 50 MSA, generating nearly $4.5 million of in-place NOI. Buyers will be well-positioned to capitalize on management inefficiencies which will materially increase occupancy and other revenue drivers. Based on our projections, we estimate that a buyer can increase net operating income by over $600,500 within the first 24 months of ownership.
