Lamplighter Apartments
(42 Units, Modesto CA)

  • Exterior painting is in full swing and scheduled to be complete by the beginning of January.
  • After the landscaping refresh is complete and new signage is installed we will place the property on the market.


  • Our private money lending business continues to gain traction with three more properties in the pipe line for loans. Going into 2017 we will be making our lending business more of a company priority. Please contact us if you have a portion of your investment portfolio you would like to place in deeds of trust secured by real estate.

On the Horizon:

  • Villages on the Lake, Oklahoma City – This 160-unit complex located on Lake Hefner in North West Oklahoma was brought to us a few weeks ago by a new broker. Interior upgrades and minimal exterior work will elevate this complex to compete with its B class neighboring properties.
  • 1 Carousel Ln, Ukiah: Approximately 98,000 square feet of light industrial warehouse in an area with severe light industrial shortage. Two strong tenants occupy the entire property. This is mostly a cash flow play due to our excellent negotiated purchase price, although there should be future upside since one of the tenant’s lease rate is roughly ½ of current market rates.
    • We plan to close this property at the end of December.
  • Our broker relationships continue to bring us deals to analyze: we are currently looking at properties in Texas, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Wichita, Little Rock, Indianapolis and Northern CA.
