Trinity Villas

Lake City, FL










Investment Overview

Trinity Villas is a meticulously maintained 11-unit rental community located in Lake City, FL. Trinity Villas is comprised of 10 concrete block buildings, all on one parcel, with newer metal roofs and upgraded electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems. The asset has been well-positioned for new management with 11 solar powered Wi-Fi security cameras for complete view of the parcel, individually metered water/sewer/electric, and minimal deferred maintenance. 10 of the 11 units have received complete interior upgrades and additional upside can be tapped by renovating the remaining vacant 3BR/1BA unit. Assuming the purchase is financed with the current available rates and terms, an investor can expect a cash-on-cash return of 13%+ on the current in-place income.

Trinity Villas is located in North Central Florida’s Columbia County, an emerging submarket 60 miles west of Jacksonville and 45 miles north of Gainesville. Otherwise known as “Florida’s Gateway City,” Lake City is ideally located at the intersection of Interstates 10 and 75 – two of the three interstates coming into the state – making the area Florida’s Gateway for travelers entering the state. Often known for the area’s world class system of freshwater springs and outdoor recreational opportunities, Lake City is now garnering national attention because of the unparalleled network of federal and interstate highways and railroads which has poised the market to be a major logistics hub to Florida and the Southeast United States. Lake City offers convenient access by road and rail to almost 20 million consumers in Florida alone and a total of sixty million within a one-day truck drive. Adding proof to this is the development of the North Florida Mega Industrial Park (NFMIP), a project in partnership with CSX, currently under development. The NFMIP is located on US-90 adjacent the Lake City Gateway Airport, consisting of 2,622 acres and approved for up to eight million square feet of industrial use and 100,000 square feet of commercial and retail.
