Selling Your Fort Walton Beach Apartment Complex? Get Ready for Questions from Buyers

Are you thinking of selling your Fort Walton Beach Florida apartment complex or multi-family, duplex, triplex, four-plex etc?

  1. What is the apartment complex occupancy rate?
  2. What are the rents?
  3. Are all the rents for each apartment the same?
  4. Do the rents correspond with unit sizes?
  5. How long have the tenants been there?
  6. Are the leases on month-month, six month, one year or other?
  7. Are any rents paid in advance? If so, is there a discount for advance payment of rents?
  8. What is the main source of the tenants for the Fort Walton Beach area apartment complex? Is there a specific industry drawing tenants? If so, is the industry cyclical (such as tourism) or is the industry growing or declining? For example, if a new manufacturing plant is being built, that would be very attractive to a landlord. However, if companies are shutting down, that would be a negative.
  9. May I have the last three years profit and loss statements?
  10. What condition is the roof? If the roof age is questionable, have a roofer inspect it prior to selling, repair if necessary and give a life expectancy statement.  If you don’t wish to do so, get bids for roof replacement from three reputable roofers, as the buyer certainly will if it’s in question. This will save you valuable time during the buyer’s feasibility period.
  11. What improvements have been done to the apartments?
  12. How old are the air conditioning units?
  13. How is the plumbing? How old is the plumbing?
  14. What does the area look like? Is it near new shopping, old shopping, schools, water?
  15. Are there other apartment complexes nearby?
  16. Are there vacant lots adjacent to the apartments or  multi-family units? If so, what is the intended use of the adjacent parcels?
  17. What does the apartment complex owner pay for? Water, sewer? Garbage? What is the cost for each?
  18. Is flood insurance required? Has the property ever flooded?
  19. What are the other insurance costs for the apartments? If insurance is high, why?
  20. Is there a survey for the apartment complex? Can more units be built? What is the zoning?
  21. Has there been any construction done without a permit?
  22. Repairs or renovations to the apartment complex or multi’s such as electrical wiring not done to code?
  23. Are there leaky windows, doors, or pipes?
  24. Is there any mold? Has mold been remediated in the past?
  25. Is there lead paint? Was the property built before 1978?
  26. Termite issues? Is there wood rot on the exterior of the apartment complex?  Wood rot is very common in Northwest Florida.
  27. Has there been any property line or zoning disputes?
  28. Neighbor issues?
  29. Is there noise from airports or other affecting the property?
  30. Have deaths occurred at the Fort Walton Beach apartment complex?
  31. Are there any liens on this property?
  32. Is there protected wild life that has prevented building around the complex?
  33. Is there weather damage to any of the units?
  34. Has the soil been tested for development?
  35. Has there been an offer on the apartment complex or contract that fell through? If so, why?
  36. Why is the apartment complex owner selling?
  37. What were the recent and past capital improvements, capital expenditures (CapEx) for the multi-family apartment complex?
  38. Do you have a platform online to attract tenants?

It’s Wendy… It’s Sold! Thank you to my Destin Florida Sellers!

Thank you to my lovely Destin Florida, Miramar Beach real estate seller clients! They tried to sell their development property near the beach as “For Sale by Owner” for two years, then listed with another real estate company for six months. When their property failed to sell, they listed it with me. It was sold in 30 days for $1,000,000.  How was this accomplished so quickly? Some of the keys to my marketing are attention to detail, follow up and thinking outside the box.

Are you interested in selling your Destin Florida, Miramar Beach house, condo or lot?  Give me a call. I will analyze your particular situation and devise a plan to get it sold!

First Time Home Buyer SOLD – Bluewater Bay Blue Pine Village!

 

It is such a rewarding pleasure to help a first time home buyer purchase his first house! Today I sold a home in Blue Pine Village, Bluewater Bay, Niceville Florida. The young buyer was just 21 years old!  To see the wide-eyed wonderment at his pre-closing walk-through made my day! He told me “he couldn’t believe” the dream had become reality of his first ever home. Just imagining his puppy romping on the tiled floors and playing in the back yard, making the garage into a “man cave”, having a computer room, noticing little touches previously overlooked, like the custom tiled shower brought exuberant smiles to his face. All wishes were granted as he signed closing papers today! A new homeowner!

How may I help you buy or sell a home in Niceville Florida or anywhere on the Emerald Coast?
