Westwood Manor is located in Grayson County and lies within the Sherman/Denison submarket, which has averaged an impressive 96.2% occupancy over the last 4 years, and 96.8% in the most recent 24 months. The submarket's effective rents have also increased by 27% over the same four-year time period.
Current ownership has consistently invested significant capital to maintain and improve Westwood Manor including parking lot and sidewalk repair, replacing all windows and doors, exterior light replacements, and roof repairs in the last couple of years. This allows new ownership the opportunity to focus on improving other revenue-generating aspects of the community such as unit interiors, fenced yards, and carports.
Howe offers a significant amount of employment opportunities and boasts an average household income of $61k. Major nearby employers include Tyson Foods, Texas Instruments, Wilson Jones Health Systems, Texoma Health Care System, Sherman ISD, and Connect General which all have over 1,000 employees. The town is also located in the direct path of growth on the Interstate 75 corridor in between Downtown Dallas and Sherman just a short drive from McKinney. The development currently being experienced in McKinney is expected to continue sprawling until it reaches Durant, Oklahoma due to the major thoroughfares, and continued need for industrial land with proximity to DFW.
Westwood Manor is ideally positioned for a new investor to increase income and significantly reduce operating expenses. The property offers a variety of opportunities to increase income by implementing one or all of the following approaches which have not been attempted by current ownership:
