The Seller has recently completed CAPEX items such as installing a new gate entry system and a pump for the water well. The property was initially constructed in phases between 1999 and 2002 and then underwent an approximate 130,000 NRSF expansion between 2015 and 2017.

One of the most attractive components of the facility is its busy west Houston location. The property has approximately 1,000 feet of frontage on West Little York Road which is a primary Houston thoroughfare stretching from Katy at its westernmost point to Humble once it turns into Little York. The facility sees around 25,000 vehicles per day of travel in front of it. Bear Creek Boat & RV Storage #2 is also approximately one fourth of a mile from the intersection of Barker-Cypress Road which is another major access point connecting I-10 to US 290. There are around 180,000 people living within three miles of the facility and the population is expected to rise to nearly 204,000 by 2026. The customer base comes predominantly from within a ten mile area where the population is over 908,000. The average household income is over $92,000 and makes Bear Creek Boat & RV Storage #2 a popular spot for recreational users and area businesses that don’t need a large storage area, but don’t require office space. The facility is in the Bear Creek area of Houston and is convenient to several major employment centers including the energy corridor which is about seven miles away.

The owner is an out of area partnership who self manages the asset. Bear Creek Boat & RV Storage #2 has some of the lower street rates in its submarket and is currently achieving rents around $4.75. As of June 2022, the property is nearly 100 percent physically occupied with just one vacancy out of the 640 spaces. The property has been highly occupied throughout the seller’s time of ownership and was basically fully occupied within six months of each expansion phase. By nudging achieved rents upwards and making slight operational modifications such as implementing a tenant insurance program an investor could see 5.26 percent end of year one unlevered yield.
