We refer to all of this information collectively as the "Property Information Package".

Below are certain risks associated with this investment that should be carefully reviewed prior to any investment in this opportunity:
Forward-Looking Statements: Investors should not rely on any forward-looking statements made regarding this opportunity, because such statements are inherently uncertain and involve risks. We use words such as “anticipated,” “projected,” “forecasted,” “estimated,” “prospective,” “believes,” “expects,” "plans,” “future,” “intends,” “should,” “can,” “could,” “might,” “potential,” “continue,” “may,” “will,” and similar expressions to identify these forward-looking statements. Similarly, the financial forecasts contained herein and in any other offering materials are based on numerous assumptions. Although these assumptions are believed to be reasonable, they are all subject to uncertainty. Non-Transferability of Notes: The transferability of the Company's Notes is restricted both by the subscription agreement for that entity and by U.S. federal and state securities laws. In general, investors will not be able to sell or transfer the Notes. There is also no public market for the Notes and none is expected to be available in the future. Moreover, although there is a defined redemption date for the preferred equity investment in the Fund, an extension option may be exercised and in any event, there can be no assurance that the investment will be liquidated at or promptly after such maturity date (as it may be extended). Persons should not invest if they require any of their investment to be liquid. This is particularly important for persons of retirement age, who should plan carefully to assure that their assets last throughout retirement.
Real Estate Market Risk: Investments related to real estate are subject to market valuation risks that may be caused by changing economic and local market conditions such as local real estate market conditions, prevailing interest rates, the rate of unemployment, the level of consumer confidence, the value of the U.S. dollar, energy prices, changes in consumer spending, the number of personal bankruptcies, disruptions in the credit markets and other factors. Such conditions are beyond the control of the Company and of the Fund. Real estate markets are affected by many factors, such as general economic conditions, supply and demand for real estate investments, interest rates, the availability of financing, and other factors, all of which are beyond the control of both the Company and the Fund.
Borrower Credit Risk: The Company’s obligation to make payments on a Note will not be guaranteed for the length of the term corresponding to the borrower’s loan. The Company (and thus investors) will be relying on the borrower for the execution of its business plan in a way that enables the sponsor to repay the principal of the corresponding borrower loan. The borrower may not have a significant record of performance and may be unable to sell or refinance the underlying property in a way that enables the borrower to fulfill its obligations under the corresponding borrower loan. The borrower loan is being made with respect to a property that does not generally meet the financing criteria for conventional mortgages from institutional sources. Credit risk is inherent in the mortgage lending industry, and there can be no assurance that the creditworthiness of the borrower will be sufficient to assure the full repayment of the underlying borrower loan. The Company does not guarantee payment of the Notes or the corresponding borrower loan, and the Notes are not obligations of our borrower.

Merritt Island, located in Brevard County, is on the eastern coast of Florida between Cocoa Beach and the mainland. The island does not belong to any official city. The central part of Merritt Island, previously known as Merritt City, is home to the majority of the island’s population and includes the local high school, library and shopping district.
Brevard County has a population of about 600,000, which includes 30 smaller cities and townships. It is considered one of the strongest locations in terms of industrial employment. There are only six locations in the United States with a higher concentration of workers in advanced industries, according to a 2015 Brookings Institute report on the Hottest Metros for Advanced Industries. This has a direct correlation with the influx of high-tech giants, which includes the expanding industries of Defense and Aerospace. And with new businesses, such as Embraer, SpaceX and Blue Origin, coming to town, the housing demands are on the rise.
Merritt Island is a wonderful place to call home. Approximately 60% of the people who live in Merritt Island have stayed in the same home for the past five years and more than 80% of the homes are owner occupied. This indicates that for the majority of its residents, the area is a wonderful place to call home.
Merritt Island commuters also spend less time on the road traveling to work. On average, residents spend between 15 to 19 minutes traveling to work, which is about 7 minutes fewer than the national average (26.1 minutes), according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In addition, the island is home to the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, one of the top ten wildlife refuges in the state, as well as the NASA Kennedy Space Center — which is only about 10 miles from Island Oaks Condominiums.
