- Upside - There seems to be upside with interior improvements and domestic rent increases. The property's rents seem to be well below its competition in the area. Since there are 0 units under construction or proposed for the area and rental rates and occupancy have steadily increased over the last year (4.25% rate increase over 2017), the property has prime opportunity to capture significant growth. Also the Laundry contract for the three laundry rooms comes up for renewal in February 2019 at which time a new owner can renegotiate the contract.
