This one comes not from one of our residents, but someone in the area where many of our units are located. Known as “MontroseResident”
From time to time we’d like to start sharing some of the feedback we get on various social media. This one comes from Danny who lives in one of our Midtown properties:
THANK YOU FAT PROPERTY!!! A few years ago I had a girlfriend that lived in this building. It’s so awesome. Her unit was older but had a quirky charm. She always said they’d have to drag her out of there if a new owner ever bought it and wanted to knock it down.
Ironically I live in one of the “Fat Property” complexes in midtown. It’s also super old (built in the 30s?) building and they’ve done a great job on the units. Ive been here since a few months after they bought it and they not only improved the building considerably but allowed the whole neighborhood to finally get fixed up.
We are thrilled to have Peacock Plaza as part of the family. This 32 unit historic property is located at 1414 Austin St downtown, right by the Toyota Center. It was built 90 years ago. In fact, I’m told the people who had it briefly before us purchased it from a lady who had the property for 80 years!
The property is made up of two 16-unit buildings, connected by a cute little courtyard. We have some big improvements planned that’ll keep the vintage charm while upgrading the units to modern standards.
Our short term plan is to leave the units in 1 of the two buildings relatively untouched (with the exception of modernizing the HVAC unit with highly efficient ductless mini splits). This will allow us to keep them affordable for the area. The units in the other buiding are getting head to toe upgrades — all new kitchen cabinets, appliances, flooring, bath, etc. Too much to type here but we’ll put them up against any new (soulless) class A construction any day.
Enjoy a few pictures (window unit shown, but those are all being replaced). If you’d like to lease one, give us a call @ 832-640-4444 or shoot us an email
To make it easier for our residents to pay rent, we’ve partnered with PayNearMe. This will allow our tenants to pay your rent in cash at any of several stores that work with PayNearMe (Primarily supporting ACE Cash Express and CVS locations – though there is a map of locations that is constantly being updated). Of course, we’ll still offer the option to pay online at our site via electronic check (preferred method) or credit card as well.
This week, our residents should receive an email or text from PayNearMe with instructions on how to make a cash rent payment at their nearest available location. If you’re a resident who would like to use this service, and have not gotten a text or email with instructions, please contact your property manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our office will be closed so our employees can celebrate Easter with their family. However, for maintenance emergencies you can still call our office line and select the applicable option.
Hop everyone has a wonderful day! <– see what I did there
Due to the bad weather and dangerous road conditions, some of our offices will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday. If you need to speak with our main office or any of our onsite offices, it’s best to call them first (see our contact page for phone numbers).
Hope everyone is staying warm.
As a reminder, Fat Property will be closed on New Years day so that our employees can have a day off with their friends and family.
On behalf of Fat Property to all our residents and partners: Here’s to a great 2018!
We love our little Winbern property. Sadly, it’s in a bad shape. And we face a bit of a chicken and egg problem. We hesitate to spend the effort to get it ready for a renter when we’re not sure if there is a demand for it. Yet a renter won’t want it in it’s current shape.
Our solution has been to offer anyone that’s been interested a large budget to fix it up in any way that they see fit based on how they’d like to use the building. Though that hasn’t yet worked as most people looking for a space want something that’s turn key read to go. So it just sits there as the little-building-that-could until a loving user comes and wants it 🙂
From the staff at Fat Property we want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
Our only change in office ours will be closing at 3pm on Friday, December 22nd and we’ll be closed Saturday, December 23rd as well as Monday, December 25th.
If you’re a tenant with a maintenance emergency, you can still call our office and someone will get in touch with our managers for you.
See everyone on Tuesday the 26th!
Our newest property is Riverbrook Apartments. This 208 unit portfolio of properties is made up of 1-2 bed traditional apartments at 9425 Scott Street. Behind Scott Street, on Heno, are a few smaller buildings that also contain some 1-2 bed units.
Then, on three different streets behind Heno (Rockingham St, Dawson Ln, and Grassmere St) are about 75 duplexes. The duplexes are 2 or 3 bed, 1 bath units. In addition to those duplex units, some of the duplexes were combined into “super units” that are 4 or 6 bed, 2 bath units.
The properties feature an onsite leasing office available to answer any questions you have. So give them a call to setup your viewing today. Or email email@example.com and we’ll see that your request makes it over to them.
