Harlem: Steve Sold on 139th Street, Doubled his Cash Flow, and Reduced Management… How?

4/4/2017

“It is my pleasure to acknowledge Joe Koicim, Peter Von Der Ahe, and Seth Glasser on their selling of my buildings on 139th Street in Harlem. Not only do I commend their ability to execute the objective in selling our assets, through their extended team, they were able to locate Triple-Net (NNN) buildings which allowed me to do a 1031 exchange and increase my cash flow significantly. Without hesitation I recommend them and keep them in the highest regard.”
– Steve, Former Owner of 515 & 526 West 139th Street

THE OPPORTUNITY

The ownership of these two Harlem buildings on 139th Street had three clear and specific goals: 1.) Dissolve the partnership so the Principals could go their separate ways on their next investment 2.) Sell for the highest price possible and 3.) Reinvest the proceeds in a management free triple net asset which would increase their cash flow.

The secret to long term investing is figuring out how to be active in every market. It’s all about having a “line in the water.” Today, most NYC multifamily investors have been pushed to seek higher yield, and sometimes more risk, in their investments.

This has kept pricing very competitive in the value-add segment of the NYC multifamily market, while pricing on repositioned and finished assets have softend since 2015. Some observers call this a “mispricing of risk.”
