Rank #1: Episode 97 - Bryan Amos - Apartment inspector shares his INSIDE SECRETS of calculating rehab costs

Podcast cover
Read more

Multifamily physical due diligence is extremely important. You gotta know what you are buying!  You need an apartment inspector to determine the condition of the asset you are buying.  Bryan Amos is a multifamily inspector & engineer. He helps buyers uncover possible rehab concerns and potential future costs when they are considering purchasing an apartment building. He is looking out for you and your investors on any potential future capital costs. Bryan creates a reliable rehab/ construction budget for you and your lender to review. Whether the transaction is a stabilized property or a value-added property, most lenders should be able to include the rehab costs into your loan.  Again, do not pay for rehab out of monthly cash flow.  BUT BEFORE, you engage an inspector at your INITIAL visit at the property with the listing agent, you should have a back-of-the-napkin opinion on what some of the rehab items will cost to replace or repair. Bryan gives us some initial cost breakdowns on several big ticket items like roofs, air conditioning, foundation, & sewer lines. This invaluable discussion is based on Bryan doing hundreds of inspections of apartment buildings. Listen carefully and you will learn a ton of information.

Rebecca Miller, with Quest Trust Company, discusses the advantages of having investors use Self Directed IRA’s for investing in apartments. A self directed IRA is one that permits the account owner to invest their IRA in what they know best, free from the investment restrictions imposed by a more traditional brokerage style account. This allows your passive real estate investors to use their IRA’s to invest in your deal. There are rules that must be followed; Rebecca Miller explains.

Rank #4: 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.

Rank #7: Episode 176 - Transitioning from Wall Street to Apartment Investing: now owns over 500 units

Podcast cover
Read more

Tauheed Saddiqui spent years working for banks and hedge funds. He would spend days on the road raising money from institutional investors. He loved it; but traveling was killing him and hurting his young family and wife. He needed to make a change and decided that real estate was going to be his new “9-5” job. He found that Wall Street was “advanced calculus,” and Real Estate was not even “algebra- but simple mathematics”. He replaced volatility with predictability. In Real Estate, he felt you were not going to lose 20% of its value over night. Tauheed liked that math and explored residential and commercial real estate. His first project was the construction of rental duplexes. He was hooked on Real Estate after building a 32 unit property. Tauheed wanted to own more units without using ALL of his own money. He found that raising money through a syndication was the ideal way to acquire, rehab and stabilize large, older apartment buildings. Listen to Tauheed’s journey into real estate syndication.

Rank #9: Episode 144 - Get Smart - 3rd Quarter Loan Officer Roundtable

Podcast cover
Read more

Your lender brings a huge amount of capital to your transaction. They are a critical member of your success team. You need to understand what’s important to the lender and how they will structure your loan. In today’s podcast, we sit down with a few team members of Old Capital and discuss what’s new in the capital markets and what you need to know. Items discussed: 1. Fannie Mae Pricing Waivers- for the last few years, Fannie has been generous in reducing their posted interest rates to good clients. Today, Fannie Mae is not too anxious to offer lower interest rates to new and inexperienced borrowers at the highest loan leverage.

2. Term Sheets vs. Final Loan Commitment- Some lenders are not fully underwriting the loan transaction upfront and issuing false term sheets. They propose loan terms that are not even close to what the final loan commitment will eventually be. Don’t fall for that, always ask for your lenders underwriting analysis upfront and find out how they view the transaction. Fannie’s underwriting criteria is pretty much the same from DUS lender to DUS lender…so term sheets should be very similar. If not, then look into their underwriting.

3.During the loan process, be prepared to bring in additional equity if the seller does not increase the property’s NOI. Unfortunately, many sellers don’t realize that the buyer’s lender needs to see positive NOI during the loan process. Do not have the seller take their foot or the buyer will need to bring in additional equity to close.

4.Always ask for the sellers 5 YEARS- INSURANCE LOSS RUN upfront before you go hard with earnest money. You need to find out if the seller has filed any insurance claims against the subject property. One claim should not increase premiums…but several claims can push up insurance premiums and will reduce your loan amount significantly.

Today, we talk to a couple that was motivated to think about creating a passive income stream by a serious car accident. That life changing event put a new perspective on how important passive income can be. Doug is a dentist in north Texas and was severely injured in an auto accident. He was in a coma for over a week and in physical therapy for months. Imagine not being able to work and earn income during the period time that you are recovering. Think of the impact that this would have on your family. This may never happen to you; but it could. Perhaps passive real estate income should be part of your investment plans.  Doug & Jennifer Jopling own a small apartment building in Fort Worth, Texas. We focus on the journey from owning a few single family rental homes to buying an apartment building. Doug & Jennifer share a challenge that they uncovered during the due diligence process. Listen to what was found and how they overcame the unique challenge.

Podcast cover

The quarterly loan officer roundtable is an internal discuss with some of the loan officers at Old Capital on what is working or not working with lending. Jonathan Ferrell is introduced to the listeners. Jonathan joined Old Capital as a Senior Director. Jonathan has over 14 years in banking and is an expert on financing commercial real estate. James Eng gives us macro-economic feedback on how some of the different apartment markets are doing in Texas and the nation. Ricardo Hinojosa shares the importance of property management and getting them engaged early in the transaction. Looking at rental comps in the submarket and then building a an initial rehab budget early on with a qualified property management company, can save a ton of time on a deal that may not work. Ricardo goes onto explain some REFINANCE CASH OUT GUIDELINES for Freddie Mac Small Balance loans. Dave Walls talks about the challenges with affordable housing. Jonathan Ferrell stresses the importance of having the right budget numbers upfront when you apply for the loan because if it is slightly off your reimbursements for draws will have an impact. Check and double check your budget numbers, please. Les Meisl speaks about underwriting guidelines with Freddie Mac Small Balance and the MAXIMUM loan leverage you can expect for a refinance- cash out or even a purchase. Smaller, remote cities in the US can have lower leverage requirements than larger cities. Meaning, max leverage in Chicago will be 80%, but max leverage in Tupelo, Mississippi is 70% with Freddie Mac. One size of town will not fit all! Make sure you contact us to find out what the maximum leverage you can expect. Thanks for joining the conversation.

Podcast cover

Michael discusses future acquisition strategies with an apartment buyer. Michael has concerns about ownership focus and time management when looking to diversify into other markets. Most larger apartment markets have buying opportunities within their markets. Unfortunately, many potential buyers don’t focus on a specific market to get an in-depth relationship with listing agents, local management companies and vendors (HVAC, plumbing, electrical) and tend to bounce from one market to another. That can be challenging for apartment operators that need efficiency.

He did not want to make a costly investing mistake…so he became a member of a national education/mentoring organization.
