Philanthropy Can Close Our Nation’s Wealth Gap and Provide a Crucial Safety Net — One That Government Cannot.

Editorial by Linda Pliagas, Publisher

As we close out another REI Wealth edition, we in the midst of a presidential election.  Like the rest of Americans, I’m continually being bombarded by emails, texts, robo-calls, letters, advertisements and social media posts reminding me to vote — with pleas that I vote a certain way, all across the board.

It’s difficult to remember our own voice and values with the constant, boisterous ruckus all around us.  While everyone may attempt to sway your vote, it’s important to silence the noise and take individual responsibility to learn as much as you can about the issues, and people, you are choosing.

The privilege of voting comes with responsibility. Have you done research on the bills on the ballot? Or, are you simply voting like your friends are? Be sure to take the time to research important issues that will shape our national and local lives.

My purpose for this editorial is not to attempt to sway you one way or another — everyone else will try and do that!  I do, however, have a unique perspective that I would like to share, since I was raised by a government employee.

My father worked as an electrical engineer for the United States Border Patrol for many years, so I recognize the importance that government has in our lives.  But truthfully, while we did “get by” with his federal salary, it certainly did not provide the comfortable lifestyle we yearned for.

In fact, even as a child I could see how frustrated my father became over the years. He yearned to provide a better home for us. He wanted to become an entrepreneur, but the safety and security of his federal position almost crippled him with complacency.

I was fortunate to discover early on that while our government is an important function in our lives, one that can indeed assist us during times of turmoil, it cannot possibly provide us with everything we need, nor want.

This is why philanthropy is so important to our American culture and life. Non-profit organizations, fueled by passionate workers and volunteers, can make a crucial difference in the lives of the most needy. They provide the safety net that government cannot — and should not.

My family has been at both ends of the Goodwill spectrum. During my dad’s brief stint as an entrepreneur, we had to rely on charity for a bit. Later, as a working adult, I donated clothes, furniture, money, and time to many worthwhile organizations.

In fact, one of the best Thanksgiving Day holidays I ever had was serving the homeless when I was 21 years old. At the time I was in college and worked part-time in an upscale restaurant. One of my regular customers was a successful lawyer who invited me to serve lunch with him on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles. What a life-changing experience that was!

Being a part of team to ensure that others with absolutely nothing had a warm, delicious meal was one of the biggest blessings I could ever ask for. It was a defining moment in my life.

Since then, I’m reminded every Thanksgiving Day to give thanks and give back.

It is in this spirit that we host our annual “Give Thanks, Give Back” Expo, only this year it’s being produced all virtually.  For the first time, our readers can now join us from wherever they may be.

Once again, we’ll have top speakers sharing the secret strategies that catapulted them to success as real estate investors. At the end of each session, our speaker will reveal their favorite charity so guests can learn about the important work they do, plus even make a direct donation — if they so choose to.

For the past ten years, our “Give Thanks, Give Back” VIRTUAL Expo has raised thousands of dollars for many worthwhile charities, including: Long Island Cares – The Harry Chapin Food Bank, The San Diego Mission, Salvation Army, Camp Home — The PTSD Foundation of America, among others.

We invite all of our readers to join us the weekend of November 21st and 22nd, beginning at 9 am PST, for an amazing weekend of learning and giving. For more information, CLICK HERE.

So, as we come near the close of another election, let’s know that regardless of the outcome, we still individually must take responsibility to create a better life for ourselves, our family, and our nation.

Until next time,

CA Rehabs and ADUs are hotter than ever, EVEN in a pandemic

Dear Realty411 Reader;

This year has been like something we’ve never seen, like a clip right out of “The Twilight Zone.”

We’re not even sure Stephen King could have made this story up, but here we are in the midst of a pandemic — and the crazy thing is, buying and selling houses is still HOT, HOT, HOT.

Take it from our friend Mentor, Alton Jones. He’s a 34-year LAPD Veteran, who when he grew tired of dodging bullets, turned to rehabbing homes in the CA area part-time… and is now running a multi-million-dollar business…finding, fixing and flipping houses.

In the past 10 years, he’s learned a lot of tough lessons and has become one of the nation’s leading experts flipping houses for a profit using his team to successfully rehab and sell hundreds of houses in this time.

Alton Jones RehabstoRiches digitalThis coming September 18th – 20th, he’ll be conducting his Live, Virtual workshop where he’ll be teaching students:

  • How to Find the Good Deals You Keep Hearing About
  • Ways to Purchase Properties Without Using Your Own Money or Credit
  • How to Negotiate with Sellers
  • What to Look for When Inspecting a Property
  • How to Systematize and Automate the Rehabbing and Selling Process to Make It Faster, Easier and Safer
  • How to Make A Scope of Work, Materials List and Schedule Like a Pro
  • Where to Find the Best Contractors and Sub-Contractors
  • How to Flip Houses with Your IRA
  • How to Sell Your Houses FASTER Than Other Investors and For More Money
  • ALL THIS AND MORE, CLICK HERE!

So, if you’ve always wanted to flip houses in the CA area, but were afraid to risk losing money OR if you’ve always wanted to FIRE your boss and have the freedom to work from anywhere, even on vacation, Alton’s the guy to show you.

As part of his curriculum, he’s incorporated his latest and hottest rehab strategy, modifying existing structures into ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units). ADUs have become all the rage in CA in just the past 2 years. Think garage to In-law suite.

Alton will show you the many ways he’s been able to navigate the treacherous waters on the ADU permitting process which can affect your buying decisions and understanding the rules that can make you lots of money or can cost you tens of thousands of dollars.

If you’re in the market in the CA area, this is a must attend event! Set aside September 18th – 20th and join Alton from the comfort of your home for this event!

Don’t Miss The Deadline To Balance Your Real Estate Portfolio

By Bill Mencarow

Savvy real estate investors balance their portfolio with real estate notes (trust deeds or mortgages); real estate for appreciation, real estate notes for income.

My name is Bill Mencarow.  While my wife Alison and I were on the staff of the US Congress in Washington, we started to invest in real estate and later discovered notes (trust deeds and mortgages).  We still love real estate, and since then we’ve bought and sold lots of it, and lots of notes.

We then started The Paper Source, an educational resource for note investors and those who want to be.  For many years we have hosted the annual Paper Source Note Symposium which attracts several hundred investors.

Could the Corona Virus provide the next Boon for Private Mortgage Lending?

By Edward Brown

The Corona Virus had all but shut down conventional lending in late March 2020 and most of April 2020. Although it now appears that many banks have loosened up, they are far behind in applications due to the shelter in place restrictions and lack of certainty in the market.

covid-19-5081825 small

This situation may provide a boon to the private lending industry as it has done at times over the past 30 years; however, a cautionary tale might ensue should the perceived lockdown last for a few more months. The main reason is that a prolonged economic decline can produce long lasting effects that may take years to recover, especially in certain markets such as restaurants, retail, and any place where people gather. Different economic interruptions have occurred over the past 30 years that, for the private lender, with foresight, fared better than just before the downturn in the market.

In the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s, the Savings and Loan crisis shuttered many real estate lending institutions. Almost one out of three Savings and Loans failed from 1986 to 1995. It was the most significant collapse since the Great Depression. According to author, Kimberly Amadeo, “In the 1970s, stagflation combined low economic growth with high inflation. The Federal Reserve raised interest rates to end double-digit inflation. That caused a recession in 1980.

finance-4599824small

Stagflation and slow growth devastated S&Ls. Their enabling legislation set caps on the interest rates for deposits and loans. Depositors found higher returns in other banks. At the same time, slow growth and the recession reduced the number of families applying for mortgages. The S&Ls were stuck with a dwindling portfolio of low-interest mortgages as their only income source.

The situation worsened in the 1980s. Money market accounts became popular. They offered higher interest rates on savings without the insurance. When depositors switched, it depleted the banks’ source of funds. S&L banks asked Congress to remove the low-interest rate restrictions. The Carter administration allowed S&Ls to raise interest rates on savings deposits. It also increased the insurance level from $40,000 to $100,000 per depositor.

By 1982, S&Ls were losing $4 billion a year. It was a significant reversal of the industry’s profit of $781 million in 1980.

Between 1982 and 1985, S&L assets increased by 56%. Legislators in California, Texas, and Florida passed laws allowing their S&Ls to invest in speculative real estate.

Amongst scandalous activity such as putting pressure on the Federal Home Loan Banking Board to overlook suspicious activity, the crisis pushed states like Texas into a recession. When bad land investments were auctioned off, real estate prices collapsed.”

hammer-1537123 small

In addition to the simple laws of supply and demand where the supply of money available for real estate purchases decreased due to the number of S&Ls closing, other conventional lending institutions became skittish and backed off; even for the more conservative loans.

Enter the private real estate lender. For those who could think outside the box and use some creative thinking, loans were made that, in one person’s opinion “was like shooting fish in a barrel.”

An example of this was a loan I was privy to that, to this day, I cannot believe a conventional lender did not make; the property was in the financial district of San Francisco and was considered a prime office building. The building was 80% occupied and had tremendous positive cash flow from long term, stable tenants. The buyer was getting a severe discount because the son who was given authority by his father accidentally accepted an almost insulting low-ball offer. Although the father tried to correct the mistake, the buyer refused to change the contract and threatened to sue for specific performance.

By all accounts, the buyer needed a loan of 20% LTV. Unfortunately [or fortunately, depending on which side of the table you are], the banks were acting like a deer in headlights and would not commit to a loan; thus, the buyer had to turn to hard money [as it was called in those days]. The terms were 14% and 10 points for a three year loan with a one year minimum guarantee of interest. Although the buyer was not happy with the terms, he knew he was going to make a fortune on the building and be able to refinance once the economy got back to somewhat normal.

internet-1181586small

Then, in the late 1990s, we experienced the Dot Com bubble and burst. During the 1990s, more people were getting use to the World Wide Web. At the same time, a decline in interest rates increased the availability of capital. Add to that the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, which lowered capital gains tax. These combinations made more people willing to make more speculative investments. Many investors wanted to ride the gravy train to invest at any valuation. Venture capital was easy to raise and fueled many companies that never had made a profit and probably never would.

In early 2000, the Fed raised interest rates, leading to stock market volatility. At the same time, Japan entered a recession. In April 2000, a judge ruled that Microsoft was guilty of monopolization and violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. This led to a 15% decline in the shares of Microsoft. On the same day of the judge’s ruling, Bloomberg News published a widely read article that stated, “It’s time, at last, to pay attention to the numbers.” Within two weeks of that article, the NASDAQ had dropped 25%. Many investors sold stocks just before April 15th in order to pay for gains they had realized from sales in 1999.

This compounded the decline of the NASDAQ. In addition, investor confidence was further eroded by several accounting scandals and the resulting bankruptcies that ensued. This spiral downward turned Dot Dom to Dot Bomb as it was known.

nine-eleven-3134131small

Although the Dot Bomb era was not real estate related, confidence in the economy was shaken. Soon thereafter, the September 11th attacks occurred and many borrowers were once again faced with conventional lenders who pulled back on their lending, not matter the asset or the strength of the borrower.

Again, enter the private real estate lender. During this period, real estate had not severely declined; maybe because the decline was more specific to the Internet rather than a global real estate credit crunch. People still had jobs and made their mortgage payments for the most part. The supply of housing had not kept up with demand, so prices stayed relatively stable. However, whenever there is perceived uncertainty, banks typically pull back and usually to an extreme wherein even the most conservative of loans is not made. The private real estate lender was given the ability to lend very conservatively at the same time as commanding a higher rate of interest than was normally attained in a more stable economy.

The next time the banks curtailed lending occurred during the Great Recession in 2008. This time, real estate was specifically cited as a major contributor due to the credit bubble and subsequent mortgage meltdown. Real estate prices fell precipitously, and although real estate declined in value, there were ample opportunities for private real estate lenders.

Many private lenders were curtailing their guidelines regarding LTVs, but they were making loans based on the then new, lower values and making a good living. For example, Mark Hanf, president of Pacific Private Money, started his business in 2008. Normally, one would have thought starting a lending business in 2008 was the wrong time, but Pacific Private Money flourished, as they made loans to borrowers in need at conservative, newer, LTVs, and no client lost money during the continued decline through 2012 due to conservative underwriting.

curfew-5086859small

Up next, the Corona Virus; although the pandemic has substantially hurt the economy regarding sales/profits, the underlying economic picture was strong prior to the virus, and there is compelling reason to think that it can be strong again after restrictions are lifted, as the various restrictions were created by governments rather than economic forces and can be undone when governments decide to disseminate them; especially if a lockdown is only for a few months rather than years. So far, real estate has not shown signs of collapsing. Sellers are unwilling to unload their properties at depressed prices.

Buyers still exist. Transactions are still being completed even if they are hampered by social distancing and more people working remotely. However, the banks are doing what they always seem to do during unsettling times; they pull back. They have less manpower via closed offices and less employees able to accomplish what is takes to make loans. This, again, gives the private lender the ability to provide the oft needed financing for borrowers. Interest rates have gone up for these borrowers even when the Fed has reduced interest rates. Less capital in the markets to lend means the demand for capital will raise the price for that capital. As long as the conventional lenders have basically stepped aside from real estate lending, the private lender should have the same opportunities that existed during the S&L Crises, the Dot Bomb Crisis, and the Great Recession.

Of course, nobody knows how long the virus will be around and how long governments will intervene rather than let the virus run its course on its own. A long, protracted shutdown would severely affect every economic situation, but it always seems that the best time to invest/lend on real estate is during the darkest hour. The old adage of buy low, sell high seems to work better than buy high and hope it goes higher.

Even if we do not know how long an economic decline lasts, conservative underwriting can help weather tumultuous times.

As many investors claim, the time you make money is when you buy, not when you sell.

Tax Tips for 2021 – Learn the Latest Strategies to Save Money

By Stephanie Mojica

With the New Year, the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, and now political changes in Washington, it’s more important than ever that real estate investors be aware of how all these changes will impact their taxes.

Realty411 interviewed two tax experts to get the scoop on the best ways for investors to prepare for tax time.

Tony Watson

Phone: 818-293-2139

SM: Are there any new tax laws that investors need to be aware of?

TW: Lots of new things! Number one would have to be accelerated depreciation. Under the CARES Act, you can drop QIP (qualified improvement property) depreciation improvements from 39 years to 15 years, which essentially gives you double the write off.

SM: What is the best thing investors can do to plan for tax payments, so they’re not caught by surprise?

TW: Meet with their tax preparers in the fourth quarter with year-to-date figures. This way, we can calculate the year’s liability well before the year is even over.

SM: What are some of the common mistakes you see investors make when it comes to tax planning and preparation?

TW: Not knowing what is deductible or where to maximize the tax benefits.

SM: What documentation is essential for investors to have at tax time?

TW: Gross rents received, mortgage interest forms, property tax paid amounts, and a breakdown of all improvements made to properties throughout the year.

SM: Do you have any additional comments or thoughts to share with Realty411 readers?

It is the right of EVERY taxpayer to plan ahead to pay less tax. If a taxpayer fails to plan, they are ultimately planning to fail.

SM: Are there any new tax laws that investors need to be aware of?

Proposition 19 is the big one this year. It is a property tax increase that greatly limits the scope of the parent-child exclusion for increases in property taxes.

SM: What is the best thing investors can do to plan for tax payments, so they’re not caught by surprise?

JD: I set my clients up with quarterly estimates, so they are already paid in. Additionally, if they have a sale, we can figure out what the resulting tax increase would be.

SM: What are some of the common mistakes you see investors make when it comes to tax planning and preparation?

One of the most common mistakes I see is that investors will use their purchase price as their depreciation on their taxes. What they should be doing is using the escrow statement to determine their basis in the property and then allocating this basis between building — which is depreciable for taxes — and land, which is not. While doing this correctly decreases depreciation deductions, claiming the purchase price as 100% deductible is very easy to identify.

SM: What documentation is essential for investors to have at tax time?

JD: The biggest ones are mileage logs, meals log, and a separate bank account to track rent and expenses.

SM: Do you have any additional comments or thoughts to share with Realty411 readers?

JD: When you’re routinely incurring expenses for the management of a few properties, a Supplemental Business Expense Form can be useful to split said expenses between the properties.

The Pitfalls of Fractionalized Deeds of Trust

Image by Pete Linforth from Pixabay

By Edward Brown

Many investors like the alternative lending space where they can invest in mortgages, otherwise known as, Trust Deed investing, whereby they become the lender on real estate. The two major ways to invest in these mortgages is either in some kind of pooled investment [a Fund], similar to a mutual fund or owning the deed of trust on a specific piece of real estate, similar to owning an individual stock.

In the case of investing in a Fund, the investor invests in the Fund, and the manager chooses which loans to make to borrowers. In the situation of owning an individual deed of trust, the investor chooses which specific loan to invest in and is recorded on title. It is the latter that is the focus of this article, and specifically fractionalized deeds of trust where the investor shares ownership in the investment with on or more other parties.

golden-gate-bridge-388917_1280

Most note brokers [in California; other states may vary] are licensed to fractionalize a deed of trust [notes] with up to 10 owners [beneficiaries]. Other brokers have licenses from the Department of Corporations to have more than 10 beneficiaries. The reason brokers fractionalize notes is usually because they are too big for one investor. A $40,000 note may be able to find a home with one investor, but a $700,000 note may need more than one investor in order to be funded. Each investor receives a recorded deed of trust [for their protection as evidence for their loan]. When the borrower pays the loan off, each investor is required to reconvey their interest in the loan [notarized signature] in a timely manner [California requires this be done within 21 days of the request]. The reconveyances are deposited in escrow, and each lender is paid off in escrow as well.

If everything goes smoothly, no one complains; however, what happens if things don’t go according to plan? What if a lender is unavailable to sign off in a timely manner? What if a lender refuses to sign? What happens if the borrower defaults on a fractionalized loan? What happens if you have a minority interest [less than 50% ownership] in a fractionalized loan? These are just a few instances where a fractionalized lender faces challenges, and these challenges can be monumental.

First, let’s look at a simple situation where a $900,000 loan has been fractionalized into 9 different lenders [each having $100,000 ownership in the loan] and 8 of the 9 lenders signs the reconveyance paperwork in a timely manner but one chooses not to sign [in time, or not at all]. Why would the lone lender choose not sign? What if the loan was very well secured and the note was yielding a higher than market rate of interest? A naïve lender may think that they can enjoy the higher interest for longer than allowed [not signing in a timely manner]. This situation is not as far fetched as one might think. In the 1990s, first deed of trust notes yielding 12% were not uncommon. When rates dropped dramatically, borrowers were quick to refinance. One investor tells the story of how a 12%, $1.2M loan was trying to be refinanced by the borrower at 9% with a new lender. The fractionalized note had 5 owners. Four of the 5 had their reconveyances notarized and delivered to the escrow company in a timely manner. The last investor had $500,000 in the note and did not want to lose his 12% rate; he was under the misconception that he could just keep coming up with excuses as to why he was not able to get to a notary [he was a busy surgeon]. After more than a month went by, the borrower sued all of the lenders for the difference in the rates [3%] plus attorney fees. Although the lone holdout was ultimately responsible, all of the other lenders had to defend themselves, which put undue burdens upon the innocent 4 lenders.

calculator-178164_1280

Next, let’s look at a situation where a majority [over 50%] lender chooses to extend a loan when it matures, and a minority lender does not. Unless the minority lender requests a partition action so as to separate himself from the majority lender, the majority lender is in control of the fate of that loan.

Dealing with foreclosures by the lenders introduces an entirely new set of challenges; first, who is going to front the money to pay the trustee fees for the filing and publishing of the foreclosure notices? What if there are no majority owners of the note? Even where there is a majority owner, most title companies are not only requiring every beneficiary to sign; powers of attorneys [POAs] may not be useful, as many title companies are stating that POAs are not valid unless they are signed within a small window of time that the reconveyance is to be signed [you might as well have the beneficiary sign the reconveyances in front of a notary if you can get them to sign a POA in front of a notary]. In fact, many title companies are not accepting service agreements that were set up at the time of issuing the note and deed of trust. Too many title companies have been sued by beneficiaries and, the only way to protect themselves, in their opinion, is to have beneficiaries sign their reconveyances; even to the extent that the title companies will choose which notaries are acceptable for signatory verification.

Thus, foreclosing may not even be possible if the note holders cannot agree to their destiny or come up with the funds needed to file the paperwork to foreclose [which can be many thousands, depending on the size of the loan].

anxiety-2902575_1280

Image by Pete Linforth from Pixabay

Other issues arise even if foreclosure has been started; one lender tells the story of how the borrower stopped making payments to both the 1st and 2nd mortgage. This particular lender was one of many in the 2nd mortgage. The 1st started the foreclosure process. Nobody in the 2nd mortgage wanted to cure the 1st. There was an offer by an independent 3rd party to purchase the property for the $100,000 over the1st mortgage, which would have been given to the 2nd [which would have paid its loan down but not off]. There were 25 beneficiaries on the 2nd DOT.  Twenty-four of them chose to allow the sale and take the $100,000, which would have amounted to a short sale; however, the one lone holdout, who represented only 4% of the 2nd, refused to sign off on the sale. His reasoning? He stated that he believed that, at the foreclosure sale, someone would bid the property up more than $100,000 over the 1st. Not only was this illogical [based upon the value of the property], but it went against his previously signed documents stating that he would go along with the majority, opening himself up to a lawsuit by the other lenders. The title company refused to give title insurance to the potential buyer, and the sale never went through. At the trustee sale, one bidder bid just over the 1st’s credit bid, and the 2nd walked away with zero.

Many individual trust deed investors believe they are protected from many perils if they own over 50% of the note, as most states have a rule that the majority holder makes the rules; however, title companies are not bound by such laws. If they refuse to give title insurance, any prudent would be buyer of the property will walk away.

Another issue is that an investor in a note does not have to come up with his fair share of the money it takes to file foreclosure, and there is no provision that states that other investors who come up with more money get a preference, so it is difficult to maneuver a foreclosure unless each person comes up with his percentage required.

Other not infrequent situations come up where the borrower wants to do a loan workout or re-write the note. Unless all parties agree, everything is at a standstill. Some unethical fractionalize note holders with sometimes hold this over on the rest of the note holders by demanding a larger share than they are entitled to or demand that the other investors buy them out.

For these reasons, many investors have turned to Funds where the Fund manager handles the foreclosure paperwork, pays the fees, and sees the entire process through.

The takeaway here is that one needs to be extremely careful if one wants to invest in a fractionalized note – not only do you want to own more than 50% of the note, but make sure you know every other owner and have like minds, which, in today’s world, is more than a daunting task.

How To Scale Your Real Estate Investments In A Highly-Competitive Market

Image by ar130405 from Pixabay

By Tim Houghten

Are you looking for more investments and ways to grow your real estate holdings? What are some of the ways that you can maintain and scale, despite the 2020 mayhem?

Brandon Cobb’s company The House Buyin’ Guys has been able to successfully sustain and even grow his real estate business by double-digits through the pandemic and chaos of 2020.

How has he done it?

Brandon Cover Nov 5 small

The House Buyin’ Guys

Brandon Cobb and his co-founder, Vagif Seidov, have been wholesaling houses to other investors, rehabbing properties, and creating win win solutions for his investors in the Middle Tennessee real estate market for years.

Prior to getting into real estate Brandon sold medical devices. After losing his job in medical device sales, he transitioned over to real estate. Brandon found his unique sales skills sharpened by the world of sales gave him a unique edge in the real estate industry. He built his company based around that sales approach, something the real-estate industry lagged.

Since then, he and his business partner have done over 100 deals in this space, During our exclusive interview, Brandon shared how business has been picking up through the pandemic.

He says that the local Nashville market has kept blowing up, with growing demand despite the pandemic. As of October 2020, they were still seeing new deals going under contract in one week, if not within one day.

investment-5318530_1280Image by Tumisu from Pixabay

Brandon and his team challenged themselves to complete a $51,000 renovation in just 10 days while filming every day and posting the daily walkthroughs for all to see on his Facebook. After having huge success with that renovation, they challenged themselves to do two seven-day flips simultaneously.

The two seven-day $32,000 flips were a failure because they took nine days to actually complete, but to Brandon and his team they were a huge success because they learned a lot about how to better systemize their rehab processes and become more efficient. He and his team are always pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the real estate space.

So how can you compete and win deals in this highly-competitive market?

Tips for Winning In this Competitive Market

This has been an interesting year in real estate for investors and business owners. During crisis, many fold and lose, and few know how to use the opportunity to create new levels of wealth.

Right now, Brandon says it is an extremely-competitive real-estate market. Since the birth of the travel roadshow real estate guru’s coming to town and pumping out hundreds of new investors in a weekend, it’s become much tougher to find deals.

So, how do you still get the deals?

Here are some of Brandon’s top tips.

Do What Others Won’t

As with any business or career, standing out and blazing a trail for yourself, and becoming a valuable go-to resource for your clients, is all about doing what other people won’t.

You can put in the extra hard work and hours, be more responsive, and go the extra mile to make customers happy, but it starts with identifying what your customer’s want that competitors are not giving them.

Brandon says one of the big challenges his clients face are tenants. Many retiring landlords are willing to sell, but buyers want the property vacant. When there is a tenant, it can leave the property in limbo. Brandon’s competitors make offers based on the house being vacated most of the time, so his company started offering tenant relocation services with their offers.

In his recent feature in Forbes magazine, he says this alone can get you a $10,000 to $15,000 discount on the price of the property and win you the deal, if you’re willing and able to help the tenant find a place to live and cover moving expenses.

Review Your Past Deals

review-5556833_1280Image by Shotkitimages from Pixabay

When was the last time you went through your past deals and evaluated what went well, what didn’t, and what you could have done better? What about which deals really made the most money? Or what happened to those properties after you exited and sold them off?

You might be surprised at what you find. Brandon certainly was. They found they missed out on a deal that would have made $107,312.

Even more surprising was the fact that they came across deals like this twi to three times a year and were completely missing them! So, they adjusted their strategy when they came across these special opportunities, and after acquisition, and rehab costs are now able to sell them for almost double, with around $70,000 to $100,000 in gross profit.

Select Your Customers Carefully

How selective are you being with the customers you take on?

Brandon’s construction company, HBG Construction, offers rehab services to others outside his house flipping business. Savvy business owners and independent professionals learn that they can work much more efficiently, profitably, enjoyably, and with less risk and stress, if they are more selective in who they do business with.

At first, it may seem like a good idea to take on various jobs within your space and Brandon did just this. His company would service builders, home owners, rehabbers, basically anyone who needed work done on their house.. until it became a big headache..

Just trying to work with anybody and everybody can be a big trap. You might feel busier chasing the money, but that doesn’t mean you’ll really net more money.

Brandon suggests figuring out who your ideal customers are, and to fire everyone else. Brandon discovered that his construction company loved working with other rehabbers. Because Brandon is an investor himself, he was able to understand and pinpoint all the pain points rehabbers have when it comes to dealing with contractors.

Brandon’s construction company now works exclusively with other rehabbers on their flips, and that moment when he fired all his other customers changed everything. Now, his team deals with customers whose needs they understand and serve best.

Grow Your Referral Business

Referral business IS the best business. Referrals cost the least amount of money to generate, are the easiest to handle, and are the easiest to close! Brandon’s company started their own referral program using hand written thank you cards to all their customers. Occasionally, they followed up with a phone call to ask if they knew anyone that may want to sell their home.

thank-you-515514_1280Image by June Laves from Pixabay

His company uses email drip campaigns to stay in touch and hands out handsome referral checks every time someone brings in a referral. They broadcast the experience of the person responsible for the referral receiving the check, which prompts others to refer business!

This method alone has allowed Brandon’s company to grow by double-digits with NO INCREASE IN SPENDING.

Leverage Other People’s Time and Money

In addition to leveraging other people’s money, smart real estate pros and CEOs learn to leverage other people’s time, expertise, and exposure.

There are many in your market who have built up their own network and are doing their own marketing. Work with them, instead of competing against them. He specifically points to real estate agents as an example of this. While many real estate investors feel they are at odds with REALTORS, you can actually help each other and negotiate win-win deals If you understand their needs.

Summary

We are in an interesting period where the real estate business and country is evolving and changing. Many will fail. For some, this year will set them on a completely new trajectory for success and wealth.

These tips can help you protect and grow your real estate investments, regardless of the mayhem happening out there.
