PORT CHAROLOTTE, Fla. (Sept. 8, 2020) – Capital Square, a national investment sponsor specializing in tax-advantaged real estate offerings, announced today the launch of CS1031 Harbor View MHC, LLC. The offering is comprised of Harbor View, a 55+ age-restricted, lifestyle manufactured housing community on the Peace River waterfront in Port Charlotte, Florida.
“Capital Square is thrilled to launch its second 55+ lifestyle manufactured housing community investment in coastal Florida,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square. “There is a scarcity of manufactured housing communities in Florida, creating an imbalance of supply and demand.”
Rogers added, “The community presents a value-add opportunity, with 38 vacant homesites out of 147 total homesites, and average homesite rent of only $448, approximately 33% less than the submarket average of $670.”
Located at 24325 Harbor View Road, the community is situated on 26 acres of land and contains 147 homesites. Capital Square intends to maximize the value of Harbor View by increasing occupancy and homesite rental rates. The firm expects to update the property by adding a new community clubhouse and office, community center with resort style pool and a community dock. Plans are also in place to update signage, landscaping, roads, driveways, curbs and the riverfront beach area.
“This property is located on the Peace River, with several homesites on waterfront lots,” said Whitson Huffman, chief strategy and investment officer. “Capital Square intends to make $4.5 million of strategic improvements to the community, significantly enhancing the quality and increasing occupancy, rents and property value.”
Homesite rents increased 5.2% from May 2019 to May 2020 and 4.9% annually since 2014, for four- and five-star, 55+ comparable communities in Florida, with an average occupancy rate of 96%, as of May 2020.
According to the Manufactured Housing Institute, more than 22 million people live in manufactured housing communities nationwide. Manufactured housing is an asset class that addresses the nationwide housing affordability crisis since manufactured homes typically cost half as much to build as site-built homes.
Since inception, Capital Square has acquired 113 real estate assets for approximately 2,200 investors nationwide seeking quality replacement properties that qualify for tax deferral under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code and other investors seeking cash flow and capital appreciation.
