Issues to consider when evaluating a RAD conversion
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
What are the capital needs?
What are the market rents? FMRs, rent reasonableness?
Can you provide resident services?
What is the local PHA?
What are the maturities? Is there a Rent Supp and Sec 236
mis-match? Is there other debt?
6. What share of resident will be eligible for PBVs? LIHTCs?
7. What’s the timing, can you meet the deadlines?
8. How do you work with uncertainty of program?
Implementation of RAD Conversion
