About the Sponsor

TriWest Development, LLC (“TriWest”) is a residential real estate investment company focused on value add properties in Los Angeles County. TriWest was formed to take advantage of (i) the strong fundamentals in the coastal Los Angeles residential real estate market, (ii) the lack of supply in high demand, coastal, Los Angeles corridors, and (iii) the arbitrage between prices of financially/physically distressed properties and the ultimate retail value of such properties.

TriWest focuses on mid to high-end markets that have tight supply due to limited new construction or renovation over the past several years. TriWest also capitalizes on dated housing stock that can be transformed into architectural design homes superior to the competition in the marketplace. Upon acquisition, each home is designed to a level of finish to appeal to buyers in each specific location.

TriWest has substantial connections in the Los Angeles County market and utilizes top tier local agents who specialize in certain pockets of Los Angeles County to find investment opportunities. TriWest then underwrites each opportunity internally, walks every potential purchase to estimate amount of rehab needed to reposition the asset and observes the neighborhood and the property’s location on the block (corner lot, alley access, etc.). Upon completion of renovations, TriWest utilizes its team of real estate agents across Los Angeles County to sell the property to an end buyer.

TriWest’s Performance Highlights Include:

  • Strong Track record with over 105 successful purchases and 72 dispositions in the last 30 months;
  • Aggregate Unlevered Annualized return of 29%;
  • Average Investment Cycle of 174 days per property;
  • Established Agent and Contractor Network.

Property Summary

Please see below for a description of the property from the Sponsor, TriWest:

Bajio Road, Encino is another great investment opportunity presented by Triwest Development, LLC. This large upslopeing lot, situated on a private cul de sac protected street, provides the perfect canvas to build a beautiful estate property in one of the hottest markets in Los Angeles. Encino has seen a large increase in the number of sales and desirability of estate properties between $4,000,000-$6,000,000, and currently has one of the biggest demand backlogs in the county. The large price appreciation in surrounding neighborhood such as Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and Century City has resulted in many buyers going to Encino where they can get more “bang for their buck,” but still be well located to most business centers in Los Angeles.

The house will be a full East Hamptons Cape Cod style, complete with a main living house, full service guest house/pool suite, three car garage, private flat backyard, swimming pool, movie theater, outdoor entertaining area, and everything a buyer will expect for this style estate home. The exterior will be full lath 12″ white siding, black Jeldwin casement fiberglass windows, and white brick accents throughout. The interior will be accented by full height paneling details, wainscoting, french oak whitewashed floors, full glass wine room, Walker Zanger and Anzacs tile/stone materials, full overlay exposed hinged cabinets, and intricate crown molding details. The house’s orientation is about twenty feet above street level, giving it a grand feel that is complimented by its completed flat backyard that buyers in this area are looking for. This will truly be a family’s dream estate home and we expect a quick and easy sale once completed.
