    248: Solving The Affordable Housing Shortage And Generating Unusually High Returns

    248: Solving The Affordable Housing Shortage And Generating Unusually High Returns

    There’s no secret we have a housing shortage in this county and the problem will persist as it stays prohibitive to build new housing units for a number of reasons. This is one of the factors that’s contributed to the trend towards converting older motels into garden style apartments. Ross Hubbard, Co-founder of Sage Investment Group, has been acquiring older motels from the 80’s and 90’s and converting them into studio apartments with hotel-like amenity packages for people who sometimes have difficulty affording basic workforce housing. He’s been successful creating partnerships with agencies who subsidize housing for different groups of dispossessed citizens. Ross is repositioning these assets and achieving 90% + occupancy rates and cash-on-cash returns in the mid-teens. He’s helping solve the problem of an affordable housing shortage and also getting big returns for his investors.

    246: Get A Conservative 8% On Your Money Against Houses In Nashville

    246: Get A Conservative 8% On Your Money Against Houses In Nashville

    As interest rates have risen dramatically, asset prices have declined. The question on everyone’s’ mind is how much more they’ll fall and what’s the best investment strategy to be positioned for capital preservation and growth. One strategy that’s gaining more traction is investing in debt. Debt typically pays a predictable preferred return and is a conservative way to keep pace with inflation and preserve capital to set aside for future equity investments as the market further corrects. Will Powers, CEO/Founder of Urban Gate Capital, has a debt fund that loans money to single family flippers in Nashville and has a growing pool of borrowers and investors.

    245: Great Deals On Foreclosed Homes

    245: Great Deals On Foreclosed Homes

    For investors in single family homes, auctions can be a great place to find deals. When homeowners can’t pay their mortgages, lenders will take back the properties and often put them up for sale at auction where investors can pay 25% less than the estimated value of the home, and sometimes even less. Daren Blomquist, VP of Market economics at Auction.com, discusses the macro state of the market and what to expect in 2023. Auction.com currently puts 3,000-5,000 on their site per month and that amount is likely to increase. Darin anticipates a recession in 2023 and an increase in foreclosed homes and great opportunities for investors.

    244: No Leverage Industrial Properties With An 8% Yield

    244: No Leverage Industrial Properties With An 8% Yield

    Real Estate tends to go up over time and most newer investors have never experienced a downturn. There are periods, however, when Real Estate has come down in value and we’re quite possibly heading into a contracting environment currently. Joel Friedland, Principal of BRIT properties, only buys properties with all cash. Most of the challenges he had in 2008-2011 was the result of debt and declining values, and even then, he was not aggressively leveraged. That’s why he currently only does all cash deals. He and his investors are seeking very conservative investments with strong downside hedges. Joel specializes in manufacturer – user industrial properties in Chicago and delivers 8% unleveraged returns for his investors.

    243: High-End Luxury Short-Term Rentals Are Doing Extremely Well

    243: High-End Luxury Short-Term Rentals Are Doing Extremely Well

    The short-term rental space has exploded and turned into a formidable industry. Many successful owners are getting cash-on-cash returns in excess of 20%. At the same time, some markets have gotten over saturated, especially with two-to-three-bedroom dwellings. In the luxury end of the market, by contrast, there’s way less competition and many different uses for the properties like golf buddy outings, high-end bachelorette parties, to multi-generation family reunions and other uses. Lance Pederson, CEO at Parsons Villas, has started a fund to acquire high-end, luxury short-term rentals in Scottsdale/Paradise Valley which will result in great returns for investors.
