Current progress includes purchase of the land and obtaining approved documentations and licensing to construct. The project construction should be complete in 12 months. Funding is needed to start and complete construction, including furnishings and initial running costs.

The investor will put in equity and then own shares of the property for monthly rent. The investor will take 80% of the monthly rent obtained after the construction of the units. The investor will provide the quoted money, which shall be repaid at a small interest rate agreed.

Use of financing

The financing will be used for construction of the apartments and avail the various necessary services.

Opportunity for the investor
