Student Housing in Waco, TX
CommLoan represented out-of-state investor syndication whose general partners’ prior experience was limited to high-end residential construction. Through extensive market research, the Sponsors from California identified a well-located property with large floor plates in Waco, TX consisting of 50% student housing and 50% traditional rentals, listed at a below-market price. The business plan includes light renovations to the units and re-leasing them to non-students as they turn.
A rehab loan was secured from a credit union in Texas who is one of the top-performing lenders on our platform.
