Why Building Multi-family Real Estate is Smart

Whether you are a seasoned real estate developer or are a first-time developer, multifamily housing will help you build wealth faster than you could otherwise. Building multifamily apartments sounds scary. However, it isn’t. Multi-family real estate property has a higher building cost compared to purchasing a single-family home. However, multi-family apartments generate a more steady cash flow compared to a single-family home, making it easier to finance a loan.

Benefits of Owning a Multi-family Unit Property

Streamlined Maintenance

Streamlined Maintenance

Due to the nature of multi-family buildings, units are grouped together, resulting in significantly fewer maintenance costs per unit. Multi-family properties have the advantage of sharing many structural and management aspects, such as walls, HVAC equipment, and landscaping services. Streamlining any construction, renovation, or maintenance projects that may occur over time will keep your property desirable and appealing to many customers.

Steady Cash Flow

Steady Cash Flow

Owning multi-family buildings provides a consistent source of passive income every month. With affordable housing rental costs, it’s easier to manage and fill multi-family living spaces over traditional single-family living spaces. Resulting in higher average occupancy and revenue, multi-family buildings are a less risky property investment.

Tax Breaks

Tax Breaks

Multi-family rental properties such as apartments and assisted living communities are just like businesses to the IRS, allowing you to benefit from tax deductions and special housing tax benefits.

Market Ready Investment

Market Ready Investment

By constructing multi-family buildings from the ground up, you have the opportunity to include attractive amenities and services from the start. This gives you an advantage over your competition, which is only renovating older investment properties.

The History of Pataskala, Ohio

Pataskala, Ohio, is a small city with a rich history that dates back to the mid-19th century. The area that would become Pataskala was first settled by European Americans in the early 1800s, with the town itself being laid out in 1851. It was named after the Pataskas, a branch of the Delaware Native Americans. The name is believed to mean “licking river” or “bright waters” in the native language.

Pataskala is situated in Licking County and is typified by a rolling topography that is characteristic of the transition zone between the flat lands to the west and the Appalachian plateaus to the east. This gives the area a varied landscape with a mix of agriculture, residential areas, and small businesses.

Located approximately 19 miles east of Columbus, Ohio’s state capital, Pataskala benefits from its proximity to a major urban center while maintaining its distinct small-town charm. This closeness allows residents to enjoy the rural aspects of their community with easy access to the amenities of a large city.
Culturally, Pataskala boasts a strong sense of community with several events throughout the year that bring residents together, including the Pataskala Street Fair, which has been a tradition for over 70 years. Economically, the city has maintained a steady growth, with local businesses and industries providing employment opportunities while preserving the city’s quaint atmosphere.

Civic points of interest include the historic Sterling Theater, a centerpiece of the community that has been restored and now serves as a venue for movies and local performances. The Pataskala Public Library is another cultural staple of the city, offering a range of educational programs and resources to the community.

An interesting fact about Pataskala is that it was once two separate towns. In 1996, Pataskala merged with Lima Township, significantly increasing its size and population. This consolidation has allowed the city to expand its services and infrastructure while retaining its identity as a close-knit community.

Today, Pataskala remains a picturesque example of Midwestern small-town life. Its balance of residential living, natural beauty, and community-oriented values makes it a unique and appealing place to live within the greater Columbus area.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a multifamily construction project cost?

All construction projects have different costs. Below are some cost guidelines for multifamily construction buildings in and around Columbus.

How long does a construction project usually take?

The duration of a new construction project is tied to the scope of the project. A safe answer would be anywhere from 9 months to 4 years to complete construction. Many professional real estate developers and contractors will tell you to expect the unexpected with construction. The factors that affect the timeline of a construction project are:

  • Number of living spaces being built
  • Availability of building materials
  • Condition and development of the land

What areas do we serve?

We have completed construction projects all over Ohio. Rockford Construction is located in greater Columbus, OH, but we build commercial housing projects anywhere in Ohio.

Are multi-family construction projects fully customizable?

Yes. One of the advantages of building a multi-family new construction project over purchasing a renovation project is it gives you the opportunity to pick the most up-to-date plans, furnishings, and amenities to attract the top tier renters and buyers.

What is some advice to consider when it comes to budget?

When working on a budget – prioritize, prioritize, prioritize! It is important to remember what is most important to you because it is easy to get wrapped up in the excitement and go over budget. Create a prioritized list of all the “must-have” features and amenities, then outline how much you are willing to pay for each. Value engineering will come into play when your budget becomes stretched.
Keep in mind the shifting cost of materials in the various markets in which you intend to build. The professional leadership, expert management team, and gifted designers and contractors at Rockford Construction are committed to seeing your project through from promising kickoff to successful completion.

How do I get started constructing a multifamily development project?

Our experienced real estate developers and general contractors will work through the process of your project scope and outline the best course of action for building your commercial real estate complex.

What is multifamily construction?

Multifamily construction projects are as simple as they sound: it’s a dwelling with several tenantable units grouped together, ie: a duplex with multiple units per floor. Many residents can live in the same overlying structure, but each family has its own living space. Amenities include a bathroom, kitchen, common areas, and much more. Many of these homes appear to be independent, separate houses or apartments from the outside, which appeals to many residents and clients. All housing is built at complementary scales and in character to the surrounding neighborhood. Examples of multi-family homes include one and two-bedroom apartments, townhouses, condos, and duplexes.

Land Costs (10-20%)

The first big expense in multifamily construction is the price of land. As one can imagine, the price of land in rural areas is cheaper compared to urban infill communities. Many factors come into play, and this property development cost may include demolition and clearing.

Hard Costs (50-70%)

The hard development cost of multifamily property construction includes the expenses for physically building the multifamily housing including the price of concrete, materials, safety equipment and systems, labor costs, engineering services, as well as contractors’ and subcontractors’ bids.

Soft Costs (20-30%)

This construction cost covers the expenses that go into the work process behind the scenes, such as contracts and legal fees, city permit fees, city zoning, interior design, architects’ fees, and other similar expenditures needed to complete the project.
