Golfview Manor, LLC was established for the purchase, development, construction, and selling of a 34-unit residential luxury condominium building on a golf course in Flossmoor, IL. The principals leading the project are Randy Pertler, Managing Member of Golfview Manor, LLC, and Thomas Cachey, Owner of T. J. Cachey Builders, Inc II.
Randy Pertler and Thomas Cachey have over 60 years of combined experience as real estate investors and developers.
As reported on 60 Minutes, the US is experiencing a housing shortage of over 4 million homes and growing. Fewer homes were built in the 2010s than in any decade going back to the 1960s. In the economic crisis of 2008 and 2009, construction of new housing came to a grinding halt. It will take a significant increase in development over the next decade to meet the current and future demand.
The Flossmoor community is experiencing their share of the national housing shortage. As a result of the building slowdown starting in 2010 and due to a lack of vacant land available, the Village of Flossmoor has only issued 34 single family home building permits and there were not any condo building permits issued. Increasing the demand for the housing in the community is the Homewood-Flossmoor School District which is one of the highest rated school districts in Chicago’s southern suburbs.
Golfview Manor, LLC has under contract a 2-acre lot that borders Coyote Run Golf Course and Restaurant on two sides and is directly across the street from Homewood-Flossmoor High School. We are working with the current owners to annex and entitle the lot. There are eight private and public golf courses within five miles of the site making it an ideal location for active seniors and golf enthusiasts.
Golfview Manor, LLC will develop a 34-unit luxury condominium building on the 2-acre lot adjacent to the Coyote Run Golf Course and Restaurant. The luxury condominium building will feature spectacular views of the golf course and the high school campus, washer & dryers in every unit, a fitness room, a conference room, assigned parking on the first level, and clubhouse with a roof-top terrace. The views from the units on the west and north side of the building will be unmatched by any residence in the area.
Achievement and traction
Over the past year, the development team has been meeting with the Village of Flossmoor’s Mayor, Building Department, Zoning and Building Committees, and Village Board. We have obtained the “Conceptual Plan” approval and approval for a density variance and height variance.. The existing building code restricts the number of units on two acres to 28. However, the density variance allows Golfview Manor, LLC to build 34 condominium units. The height approval allows the building to be 3 ½ stories high, enhancing the views of the golf course and surrounding area.
Flossmoor has long been an attractive community to raise a family. However, once the children are grown and out of the house, many residents find themselves having to move out of Flossmoor because of a lack of luxury, maintenance free housing options in the community. Therefore, Flossmoor is in need of luxury condominiums for their growing “Empty Nester” residents. Currently, there are not any high-end, luxury residential condominiums in the Flossmoor.
According to the latest US Census, the average household income in Flossmoor is approximately $130,000 per year and the median home price is $260,000. Homeowners occupy approximately 92% of the housing units in Flossmoor.
Currently under construction just 6 miles from Golfview Manor is the 70,000 sf Wind Creek Casino, providing another entertainment option for residents.
Golfview Manor will be a one-of-a-kind residence in Flossmoor. There are not any high-end, maintenance free, luxury low-rise condominium buildings in the Flossmoor on a golf course. The building will be easily accessible to the elderly and handicapped with underground parking and an elevator to the units.
There are only five condominium buildings in Flossmoor and most of them were built in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Despite most of those units desperately needing updating, they sell very quickly. In the past two years, the median average days on the market for condominiums in Flossmoor is 10 days.
The business model of Golfview Manor, LLC is very simple. We secure a property or land in a desirable location, determine its highest and best use, renovate or build to its best use, and sell the asset to liquidate and split the profit we created.
The plan for this project is to sell the 34 luxury condominiums for at least 10% more than the total cost to acquire, develop, build, market, operational, raise capital, and sell the property.
Each of the members of Golfview Manor, LLC will share in the profit of the LLC in accordance with their proportionate ownership. Cash profit payout will be distributed quarterly as the condo units are sold.
If deemed beneficial to its members, Golfview Manor, LLC may rent any unsold units owned by the LLC with the members sharing proportionately in the future rental proceeds.
