Successful Funding of Malibu Luxury Rehab Project


Last year, One of my real estate agent friends who is also an aspiring Hollywood producer and through his networking introduced me to a top production group on the Universal lot!

After a tour of the lot, we discussed the film business and the financing and investment in films they were producing.

This didn’t lead to any actual investments, but one year later, in February, my agent friend re-introduced me to this group and  after a short consultation in his office, we submitted the application package for pre-approval for a hard money rehab loan which I knew we’d get back asap because my partners and I had an established relationship with the private lender who funded the loan.

My client identified a fantastic but dated remodel candidate in Malibu with a breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean! The property had been on & off the market since 2015 & it was clear that since the previous buyers fell out of escrow the sellers & agents were uneasy about the whole private funding offer and funding.

I knew that I only had one shot to get it right!

He negotiated a $2M purchase price, our contracting team submitted a $450K rehab budget, with a 4-5 month timeline.

We ordered the ARV appraisal, after a week, it came back at $3.6M!

The case and the borrowers were nearly a perfect candidates, except for one thing: They had no experience rehabbing high-end luxury properties, so the lender required us to join the borrower on the loan and sign as co-guarantor’s of the investment! This was unprecedented!

We entered into a project management & joint venture agreement with my borrowers which afforded them  maximum leverage on their $500k down-payment. We were able to secure 2-4 months of interest payments so that wasn’t a concern.

The plan is to refinance after the remodel is complete, payoff the hard money bridge loan @ 9.9% and 4 points, 90% of purchase & 100% of rehab, into a 30 yr, fixed rate mortgage with cash out if needed for further future investments.

We closed this loan in about 30-40 days, but this was because the property was occupied by a seller who needed extra time to vacate before we closed escrow.

We will begin rehab this week & documenting our progress as we’ll be using exclusive, new “smart home upgrades” which I’m not at liberty to disclose yet due to its status.

Our motivation to JV was based on the profit potential and deal viability as well as the borrower’s financial position and excellent credit score & profile. Also even though they were not experienced, they handled the first time investor duties with poise and we were impressed with their willingness to learn the process. Overall they were very pleasant and easy to work with!

Hot New Investor Loans to Watch for in 2018!


Happy New Year!

This year one of my goals is to become an even larger resource for the Fix and Flip & Investor Community. After 16 years of service in this industry, we connect investors to lenders and private funding programs nationwide.

After reviewing these new loan offers and working with dozens of lenders, I compiled this list of lenders to refer to interested parties.

Hollywood Hills SFR Rehab, Nice Canyon Views – Wholesale Priced for Experienced Flipper

We currently have this tied up and ready to wholesale to an end buyer.
The buyer would need to replace our $15,000 EMD ASAP. They need to close by end of month.

We’ve walked this property and I can introduce the buyer to the President of the Laurel Canyon Association – this will help the overall process. He is also a land-use attorney specializing in permitting.

The property has some issues and has been condemned by the City. The buyer would have to assume this responsibility.

On-Demand Project Managers to Your Site! Perfect for Contractors and Developers


 

 

Why Residential Construction is Ripe for On-Demand Disruption

With a record year for the on-demand industry in 2016, the big prediction for 2017 is that on-demand companies will expand to new industries.

That’s happening now in residential construction. For too long residential construction has been plagued with going over budget, not meeting deadlines and plainly losing money primarily due to lack of communication.

Most contractors do not use project management software to keep their jobs in-line.

95% of all residential remodel projects end up in frustration. Homeowners go into a project excited about their contractor only to soon be in the dark about what is going on.

workflow

The new on-demand startup “Project Buddy” http://www.projectbuddyservices.com is the 1st of its kind and planning to revolutionize the industry: Creating completely transparent transactions between homeowners and contractors. Simply put, Project Buddy helps organize projects.

Project Buddy

Project Buddy Founder, Robert L. Williams

“After years of consulting in the construction industry I found that almost every job had a point where the client thought they were being cheated, it was almost always due to a simple lack of communication. Construction remodel projects are very organic and change daily. I started Project Buddy to help both Contractor and client stay up-to-date on a weekly basis.”

Project Buddy, from PGN Design Group, works with a cloud-based construction software that all parties have access to with their smartphone, tablet or computer. Project Buddy finally makes it easy for homeowners to follow the progress of their construction project from anywhere and makes it easy for contractors to keep their clients updated on day-to-day progress of their projects. It works with 5 easy steps.

  1.  Upload project information to Project Buddy cloud-based software
  2. Take daily photos of the project
  3. Create daily work logs
  4. Contact all contractors, subs and architects for scheduling purposes
  5. Create an “end-of-week” report for the project

project-buddy-logo

So who’s doing the actual work? Numerous “buddies” manage jobs in the areas that they live in. They can work as much or as little as they want. Think of it as the Uber for Project Managers.

The site will work on weekly contracts so that there is no big commitment from homeowners or buddies. For contractors, there’s no need to hire and train full-time employees only to have the burden of their salaries on the books when it gets slow.

At the end of each week, clients have the ability to either “opt-in” if they like the service or “opt-out” and we’ll see you on the next one!

Project Buddy will have the ability to do one or all of their jobs. The company is poised to disrupt the residential construction industry by helping smaller companies with growth, and larger companies with quality control. The price is $500/week for most projects, cheaper than the cost of a laborer sweeping up the site!

Why Use Them?

  1. Lost Time = Lost Money
  2. Cloud-based Software = Transparency, 24/7 access from any device.
  3. Organize contractor = Get Job Done!
  4. Weekly contracts = No Big Commitment
  5. One low rate for any size project

Project Buddy has launched in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area with expansion to other major cities in the U.S. later in the year.
