Income Property Organization is pleased to present the Midland Portfolio: Mulberry, Robin Oaks, and Perrine Pointe Apartments, which consist of 449 units, and are located in Midland, Michigan.
Mulberry Lane is comprised of 264 units and a clubhouse featuring an indoor pool and game room. Tenants of Mulberry can select between one, two, or three bedroom apartments with basement storage units. Robin Oaks is comprised of 132 two-bedroom units and a clubhouse featuring an outdoor pool. Both properties share similar unit amenities, including in-building laundry rooms, fully equipped kitchens with refrigerator, range, disposal and dishwasher. On the upper two floors, each style has a large door-wall leading to a spacious deck that adds to the open feeling of the layouts. Each unit has its own forced-air furnace and central-air unit. Perrine Pointe is a newer built complex comprised of 53 units in a quiet neighborhood setting. Like Mulberry and Robin Oaks, Perrine also comes complete with gas-forced air heat and central air conditioning. The tenants for all three of these beautifully cared for offerings are responsible for the separately-metered electricity, while the landlord is responsible for the gas and water. Perrine Pointe has new stucco and exterior vinyl with recent roofs. The portfolio saw over $500,000 in cap-ex in 2016. The portfolio is ripe for a unit-upgrade program, as the interiors are dated and present a value-add opportunity for a savvy operator. Currently, 14 units have been upgraded at Mulberry and 5 at Robin Oaks.
