• Purchased property from bankrupt developer in 2010
  • Acquisition included undeveloped land on the site

Investment Strategy and Process

  • Increase rents through improved aesthetics, marketing, and property visibility
  • Harness demand from surrounding economic development activity, including development of a new school and relocation of municipal offices to adjacent buildings
  • Initiate development on excess land parcel
  • Hire best-in-market outside property manager (previous owner had inadequately self-managed the property)
  • Leverage the property with fixed-rate debt from Fannie Mae


  • Sold in 2012 to real estate syndicator who planned additional development on excess land
  • Projected returns for new unit construction did not, in AHC’s judgment, justify the development risk, so AHC sold the opportunity to the highest bidder and booked a substantial profit  


AHC Advantage

Regal Canyon is an excellent example of focused strategy, rigorous asset management and disciplined hold/sell analysis.

Our impeccable reputation and industry contacts positioned AHC to be a reliable back-up buyer when the initial high bidder failed to perform. AHC increased rental revenue and net income by 15% and 30%, respectively, over the 18-month hold period. Our development experience and expertise allowed us to initiate the development process on excess land (municipal entitlements, conceptual drawings) and extract additional value at disposition.
