Real Estate Analysis is providing this data as advisory and solely as a point of reference. The data is an amalgamation of data reported to TDHCA in the Part D Owner’s Financial Certifications. For that reason, REA utilizes cleansed data for comparative purposes only. Factors affecting operating expenses may vary and the user should consider these possible deviations1. For that reason, under no circumstances should it (or any derivative thereof) be used in whole or in part for developing an operating expense pro forma.
1Deviations may include: development type, size, location, age, target population, management philosophies, utility districts and structures (tenant v. landlord paid), taxing districts and status (exemption types).
