In 2016, APG took an 822-unit asset in Atlanta, GA that was losing $60,000 a month into cash flowing $30,000 per month withing 6 months, increasing its value from $41 million to $50 million and it was sold 3 months later. Also, we were able to increase the value of a 304-unit apartment complex in Tuscaloosa, AL by $4 million in 9 months so it could be sold at a profit. We were able to make these quick improvements by having a strategic plan she wrote to really address the problems as they were very different in these two examples. We do also manage some owned assets, which give us the insight to manage fee deals as carefully as we would if it were our own money.
In the last 4 years, we have worked on building a rehab department so we can focus on doing value add fee management as we continue to grow that aspect of our business. We have taken on about 13 deals since 2016 that the buyer wants to rehab and sell in about 5 years.
