Why This Deal Works
We can charge premium rates due to our high walk score (94 out of 100); brand new construction and little competition
Nearly soundproof units with open floor plans
Oceanside is the fastest growing tourist area in San Diego County
By serving three distinct markets (vacation rentals, corporate rentals and gov’t contractors) we’re able to enjoy higher occupancy throughout the year

Q - What is the minimum investment amount?
A - The minimum investment amount is $50,000.
Q - Will you be offering debt positions (mezz debt or second trust deed funding) in addition to equity positions?
A - Yes, please contact Jim Simcoe to discuss the debt positions available.
Q - How do I make money?
A - As an investor you make money in two ways.
You receive a preferred return of 10% per year.
You get your share of profits based on how much you invest relative to the total investment pool. For example, if you invest $100k and we raise $2M (investment pool), you’d have 5% of the total profit pool.
Q - How are profits split between investors and the company?
A - Investors receive 75% of all profits. Our company receives 25%. At time of sale our company does not receive any profits until all investors have been paid back 100% of their initial capital.
Q - Can I invest through my self-directed IRA or 1031 Exchange?
A - Yes. Call us to discuss how best to set this up.
Q - Where can I get a copy of the investment documents and projected proforma?
A - Call us to get a link to those documents.
Q - What is the exit plan?
A - We have three potential exit plans on this deal:
Sell the building as a whole in 3-4 years.
Refinance it in three years and cash-flow indefinitely.
Sell units individually in 3-4 years if/when market conditions are favorable
Q - What advantages do we have over other Air BnB properties?
A - We have several advantages including:
We target three distinct STR communities: Air BnB renters, corporate housing renters and gov’t contractor renters (due to proximity to Camp Pendleton).
Our building is brand new and built to luxury standards.
We control the HOA and have City cooperation to operate as an Air BnB property.
Q - When will construction be completed?
A - Construction is scheduled to be completed by September 2019.
Q - What plans do you have to increase units (and thus increase profits)?
A - We are currently working with our architect to add 6-8 units to the development. This would be done by moving a few walls and reconfiguring a few entranceways. Once the plans are complete we’ll present to the city. With their approval we would take one unit offline at a time while we complete the work. Luckily none of the work is structural so it should be completed relatively easily/quickly.
