Our A.I. does not have enough data for this property’s area to make an accurate forecast of the future appreciation. Because of this, we are not projecting that this property will rapidly appreciate. The projected appreciation of 11% is determined by taking the average of the HouseCanary 3 year appreciation forecast at the zip code level — as block level data is not available.

Update 3/17/2022: The Property Manager has informed us that the insurance underwriter for this property recently realized that there was no handrail leading down into the basement unit. This is required for the liability insurance. Based on the original governance survey all investors completed after their first token purchase, 63% of token holders voted to follow the Property Manager's recommendation for any immediate repairs. The work has been approved and completed. The cost of the new handrail is $425 which has been taken out of the maintenance reserve. Invoice and picture of new handrail attached.
Update 5/24/2022: This property has officially migrated over to the new Property Manager, B2B Realty, based on the results of the prior governance vote. Because B2B Realty charges an 8% Property Management fee, the Annual Cash Flow of this property has increased from $21,378 to $21,670.
Update 7/11/2022: There has been a miscommunication error between the previous Property Manager and the new Property Manager regarding theThis tenant was delinquent on their rent & the previous PM decided to move forward with an eviction without consulting token holders. Because of this lapse in communication, Lofty will be providing a rental credit for any missed rental income while this tenant is still living in the unit because of this issue. There was an eviction hearing and the judge ruled to give the tenant 90 days to resolve their issue. The tenant recently applied for rental assistance and was approved, and they've also just got a full time job and will be discussing a plan with the PM to get completely caught up. At this time, a new court date has not been set. The attorney will forward the new hearing date once received and the tenant will still be responsible for rent over the next 90 days.
