Value-Add Opportunity

According to the Newport Beach, Calif.-based buyer, the community presents a value-add opportunity. MIG plans to upgrade unit interiors and common amenities. Among other enhancements, the property will become pet friendly by adding a dog park to appeal to the growing number of residents with pets.
