The Company plans to purchase a 30-unit residential apartment building at 3432 N.12th Place, Phoenix, Arizona 85014 (the “Property”). The Property consists of six separate buildings with a shared courtyard and was built in 1971. The 30 units include 16 two-bedroom one-bathroom units, 2 one-bedroom one-bathroom units, 4 two-bedroom 1.5-bathroom units, and 8 two-bedroom one-bathroom townhome units averaging 807 square feet per unit.
Renovations are planned for the interior of each unit to include replacement of fixtures, hardware, flooring, updated painting, and appliances. On the exterior we plan to transform the look of the property by installing new doors, painting the exterior, and updating the landscaping.
The Company plans to engage Eastfield Contracting, a third-party contractor, to complete the renovations. The total renovation budget is expected to be $1,350,000. $185,000.00 is earmarked for both exterior and common area upgrades including painting, improvements to the front building facade, and landscaping. $1,165,000.00 is planned for improvements to the 30 units as outlined above. Eastfield Contracting has completed renovations for the last 6 projects purchased and improved by Neighborhood Ventures.
The Company also plans to engage Sundial Real Estate as property manager. Sundial will manage the Property with the help of a property manager available for day-to-day management issues. Sundial currently manages over 2,000 doors in the Phoenix area including all the Phoenix area properties owned by Neighborhood Ventures. The Property will be leased up as a traditional multi-unit apartment and managed by Sundial Real Estate. The Company expects the Property to be fully leased and stabilized approximately six months after the property is acquired and renovated.
It is anticipated that the property will either be sold or refinanced after a three-year period. The renovation of the unit will bring them up to market value as follows:
|Unit Type||Current Avg Rent||Post Renovation Rent|
|1-bedroom + 1 bathroom||$694 per month||$1,400 per month|
|2-bedroom + 1 bathroom||$868 per month||$1,700 per month|
|2 bedroom + 1.5 bathrooms||$950 per month||$1,800 per month|
|2 bedroom + 1 bathroom Townhome||$994 per month||$1,850 per month|

Neighborhood Ventures (the “Sponsor”) was launched in 2017. Since then, Neighborhood Ventures has successfully raised funds online for 12 real estate projects using Arizona’s Intrastate Crowdfunding Law.
Ten of the offerings reached their maximum offerings goals, which ranged from $500,000 to $3.5 million, often selling out before the target date. The most recent offering, Venture at Route 66 reached its maximum goal within the first 48 hours after the offering launched. The largest project to date, and the first to be offered nationally, Venture on Country Club, reached 100% of the Arizona offering goal of $3.5 million, and raised $572,000 through a Regulation Crowdfunding offering, just like this one, on the Small Change funding portal.
All of Neighborhood Ventures’ projects have been multifamily projects to date, except for Venture on Broadway, their first retail project. The projects have ranged in size from 8 to 120 units and one, Venture on 66th, was purchased and operated by Neighborhood Management LLC as an Airbnb for a year before it was sold.
Four projects, Venture on Wilson, Venture on Marlette, Venture on 66th, and Venture at Villa Hermosa have completed the full cycle, from raising funds through renovation and stabilization and sale, returning all equity and the full 12% preferred offered to investors. Four properties, Venture at Mountain View, Venture on 19th, Venture on Williams, and Venture on Country Club are now stabilized and are generating cash flow for investors. And the final four offerings, Venture on Elden, Venture on Broadway, Venture on Central, and Venture on Route 66 are currently in the renovation phase.
North Central Phoenix is one of the Valley’s most dynamic areas, infused with charming elements of traditional local character and extensive and exciting development covering both major new facilities and detail-rich adaptive reuse.
Phoenix is the 5th largest city in the United States by population, making it one of the most populous state capitals. Businesses looking to locate or expand to Phoenix will find a workforce demographic ripe for success.
With nearly 4.9 million people, Greater Phoenix is the 11th largest metropolitan area in the U.S., and its population is expected to double in the next two decades. A young and diverse market with nearly 500,000 students, the region is home to several major universities and colleges. Phoenix has significant new development as well as more centralized urban redevelopment. As this urban area densifies, its unique vibe remains distinctive and vibrant.
Under the Operating Agreement, all distributions will be made in the following order of priority, after all expenses, including debt service and fees:
- First, to the Investor Members until they have received a full return of their investment.
- Second, to the Investor Members until they have received a compounded annual return of 12% per year.
- Third, to the Fund until it has received an additional compounded annual return of 3% per year.
- Fourth, to Neighborhood Management.
Annual cash flow distributions to Investors averaging 6% are expected to start once the property is stabilized and cash flowing. The Company plans to either sell or refinance the Property after three years. Upon the liquidation or refinance of the Property the Company shall provide a true-up to Investors to bring returns up to 12%. If there are sufficient funds available, and only after all Investors have received their 12% preferred return and equity back, an additional 3% preferred return may be distributed to the Neighborhood Ventures Fund.
The following is an example of the return the Company expects to distribute on a $5,000 investment:
The Company is engaged in a Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) offering (the “Reg CF Offering”) to raise money for the planned acquisition and renovation of a 30-unit residential apartment building at 3432 N. 12th Place, Phoenix, Arizona 85014.
We are trying to raise a maximum of $500,000 but we will move forward with the Project and use investor funds if we are able to raise at least $100,000 (the “Target Amount”). If we have not raised at least the Target Amount by 11:59 pm EST on March 21, 2023 (the “Target Date”), we will terminate the Reg CF Offering and return 100% of their money to anyone who has subscribed.
The minimum you can invest in the Reg CF Offering is $1,000. Investments above $1,000 may be made in $1,000 increments (e.g., $2,000 or $3,000 but not $1,136). An investor may cancel his or her commitment up until 11:59 pm EST on March 19, 2023, EST (i.e., two days before the Target Date). If we have raised at least the Target Amount, we might decide to accept the funds and admit investors to the Company before the Target Date; in that case we will notify you and give you the right to cancel.
After we accept the funds and admit investors to the Company, whether on the Target Date or before, we will continue the Reg CF Offering until we have raised the maximum amount.
The Company is seeking to raise capital through three different offerings, all conducted at the same time:
- This Reg CF Offering, with a maximum goal of $500,000.
- An offering conducted under the Arizona intrastate crowdfunding laws, with a maximum goal of $2 million.
- An offering conducted under SEC Rule 506(b) to Neighborhood Ventures Fund, LLC (the “Fund”), an affiliate, to make up any shortfalls in the first two offerings.
The money raised in all three offerings will be used for the same purposes.
Project acquisition and development costs are expected to total approximately $8.66 million. The Company expects to finance the Project through a bank loan of 70% - 80% of the Project cost with the remainder being financed through the three offerings described above.
Two scenarios for anticipated sources and uses for the Project are outlined in the table below, although more are possible.
|Uses||70% bank loan||80% bank loan|
|Closing costs and reserves||$660,000||$660,000|
|Total project cost||$8,660,000||$8,660,000|
|Arizona IntraState Offering||$2,000,000||$1,500,000|
|Small Change (Reg CF) Offering||$500,000||$225,000|
|Neighborhood Ventures Fund||$98,000||$7,000|
