Not everyone wants to be the captain of the airplane. Most folks want to be in the back of the airplane enjoying the flight. A passive investor wants to enjoy their equity investment. Today, in the podcast, we chat with Hunter Thompson with Asym Capital. His group ONLY invests into real estate transaction as a passive investor. What could you learn from a passive investor? Why do they invest in a real estate transaction? Do they have a checklist of questions they ask the deal sponsor to get comfortable? Hunter speaks about the 7 stages of being a passive investor. BEFORE you invest… You must complete due diligence on 1) the Sponsor 2) On-site manager 3) Loan Terms 4) Property Proforma & Historical Performance 5) Current Market & Submarket 6) Physical Due Diligence 7) Understanding the PPM and Operating Agreement. Passive Investors will invest in real estate opportunities when they KNOW, LIKE & TRUST the sponsor and the deal. Start asking questions. www.raisingcapitalforrealestate.com is where you will find Hunter Thompson’s new book. Are you interested in learning more about how Multifamily Syndications work?

Podcast cover

Shane Thomas and Prashant Satoskar did not know each other 2 years ago. Shane and Prashant met at an apartment educational/mentoring group meeting. They immediately recognized that by working together it would make their investing partnership stronger. Both guys brought in strengths to the team. Today, they own 3 large apartment buildings. To go bigger (more units) and go faster (shorter time frame) - it’s important to meet as many fellow investors that share your common goals. Networking within the apartment investor community is critical. If you are looking for equity, vendors, or partners; it’s important to attend and network with as many qualified folks as possible. In many markets within the country, trying to win a deal is super competitive. Sometimes, you are not the original choice of the seller. Shane and Prashant discuss winning and closing two deals AFTER they were not originally chosen. Coming in second may feel like coming in last…but many times, the original buyer cannot perform. Keep the faith.

Buying your first apartment building is the hardest.   The second and third become substantially less stressful and much easier …because you have created a “team template” for successfully closing an apartment transaction.  You have put your team together.   You have your banker, attorney, broker, insurance professional, third party property management company & physical inspector or engineer.  Just like the general manager of a baseball team…you cannot play without players…  You cannot close without a support group. Gary & Heidi Young bought their first apartment building a few months ago.  They wanted to start off with a small property so that they could own and manage themselves.   Gary & Heidi knew that owning and investing in apartment building you would need specialized education. Before they invested in real estate, they invested in education.   Gary & Heidi knew that owning and investing in apartment buildings you needed specialized education.  They joined a local education and mentoring group to give them a confidence boost.   Recently, they closed on an 11 unit apartment building.  They enjoy the thrill of buying something and making it better.    To contact Gary or Heidi:  txinvesting@gmail.com   To receive our FREE 15 page WHITE PAPER REPORT on the 2017 FUNDAMENTALS OF MULTIFAMILY FINANCING 101 and to learn more about upcoming events at Old Capital Speaker Series please visit us at OldCapitalPodcast.com   Are you interested in learning more about how Multifamily Syndications work?  Please visit www.spiadvisory.com to learn about Michael's Real Estate Syndication business with SPI Advisory LLC.

Episode 103 - YOU CAN own an apartment building and STILL keep your full time job

Podcast cover
Read more

Mit Scott and Greg Ford are business partners in the ownership of a large apartment building in Irving, Texas. They originally started with purchasing single family homes, then became passive investors in other people’s transactions and now own a large apartment building- while still maintaining their full time jobs. Ricardo asked Mit: What appealed to you most about multifamily in comparison to single family? Mit thought that you could create ‘greater value’ in a multifamily acquisition than in a single family purchase. Your house is going to be worth relatively the same as your neighbor’s home regardless of the finish out or appliances. Your home value will be based on other closed sales of similar homes in the submarket. In the multifamily arena, the value of that business is based on how much income you can generate. The higher the Net Operating Income (NOI) the greater the value you will create on your apartment investment. Mit gives an example on how they created additional value by giving tenants the opportunity to rent parking spaces close to their units. The impact from this marginal parking income has an unbelievable impact on over-all value. Single family ownership is not scalable and apartment ownership is. Greg gives us a real example on how a reverse-1031 exchange works.

Episode 85 - Kenny Wolfe owns 2100 units in four states. How can YOU do this?

Podcast cover
Read more

Kenny purchased his first out-of-state property in 2014. Kenny initially started buying apartments in Texas and then he bought in Colorado, Oklahoma and Ohio. Kenny’s philosophy is have “real estate and will travel.” He likes to buy in landlord friendly states that contain diverse economic drivers for growth, low unemployment, and historical population growth. Kenny explains the challenges of living in Dallas, but owning apartments in different states. He actually visits his properties out of state more frequently than the ones he owns in his immediate area. Everyone believes that proformas and partnerships work in straight lines, but Kenny believes in being flexible to handle ‘operational curve balls’ as one of his keys to his success.  Kenny chats about his latest acquisition in Waco, Texas. Kenny bought this property because of its location near Baylor University. It was 50% occupied and needed lots of rehab…but its spectacular location made it a great opportunity. The seller could not provide historical financials to the property. Typical bank financing was not available because of lack of financials and low occupancy on the asset. Kenny had to be creative on how he was going to finance the acquisition and rehab of the property. He discusses the strategy of using ‘hard money’ as a tool. Hard money can be an option when an ‘’all cash” purchase is not available. It’s a short term solution and can help you acquire more assets.  To receive our FREE 15 page WHITE PAPER REPORT on the 2017 FUNDAMENTALS OF MULTIFAMILY FINANCING 101 and to learn more about upcoming events at Old Capital Speaker Series please visit us at OldCapitalPodcast.com Are you interested in learning more about how Multifamily Syndications work?

Hans Box is a talented, top producing commercial loan officer for Old Capital; but also is an investor and a CPA. Hans has been a deal sponsor or a passive investor on many real estate transactions over the last few years. Hans shares his experience in real estate investing and breaks down some common jargon into easy to understand terms. Hans also coaches passive investors to be proactive with deal sponsors. He wants you to recognize that you are making an investment not only on the jockey (deal sponsor) but also the horse (the apartment building). Can the deal sponsor clearly articulate what the goal of the transaction is all about? Are they buying a value-add property or a yield property? How much rehab is needed? What is the expected rate of return? When can I expect a return on my investment? How much “skin in the game” are the deal sponsors co-investing into the transaction? What CAP rate are they using on the sale? Listen to this comprehensive discussion on how passive investors make money in apartment syndications.

Episode 78 - These rookies bought $27 million in apartments and still have their full time IT jobs

Podcast cover
Read more

In less than 10 months, Venkat and Ramana, purchased 3 apartment buildings in 3 different states with over 500 units, for $27 million. Now, they are hooked on buying apartments. Venkat is the IT Services business. Initially, he started buying single family homes. From 2007-2014, Venkat had purchased over 20 homes. He maxed out his ability to get long term Fannie Mae home loans and wanted to learn how to scale his real estate business. He found an apartment mentor that specifically taught multifamily investing. He then found a partner with Ramana in that same mentoring group. Ramana is the IT Services business for 13 years. He had done some investing in real estate, but on a limited basis.  First transaction was in Norman, Oklahoma. Second transaction was in Phoenix, Arizona. Third transaction was in Mesquite, Texas. Phoenix seller forced buyers (Venkat & Ramana) to use their local mortgage company. After 3 weeks, their mortgage company could not deliver. Buyers brought Old Capital into the transaction. Old Capital was able to close within 43 days and with max 80% leverage and a non recourse loan.  Next deal, Tradewinds Apartments was a $15 million acquisition in Mesquite, Texas. James explains the difference between CapX and Re-Incurring expenses and why it is important when you need to qualify for the loan. Venkat relied upon his property management company to research the submarket to make sure they could hit higher rents.  What we learned: More transactions that you do, the easier it becomes to raise capital from limited partners. You can make 50 calls to new investors and explain it 50 times; or you can invite 50 friends and investors and do a recorded webinar and explain it one time with slides by explaining the benefits of investing in your deal. Being part of an apartment mentoring group can help you bring your apartment investing business to the next level.  Connect: Venkat at get2venkat@gmail.com Ramana at rmkorada@yahoo.com  To receive our FREE 15 page WHITE PAPER REPORT on the 2017 FUNDAMENTALS OF MULTIFAMILY FINANCING 101 and to learn more about upcoming events at Old Capital Speaker Series please email us at INFO@OldCapitalLending.com Are you interested in learning more about how Multifamily Syndications work?
