KANSAS CITY REHAB INVESTMENT PROPERTIES: LOW ENTRY POINTS AND DUAL EXIT STRATEGY:

Through our years of investing and servicing investors we have developed relations with local banks, real estate agents, and wholesalers to provide us with great properties at low prices. We have certain criteria all of our homes must have and only certain zip codes we invest in. WE ARE BUYING HOMES IN KANSAS CITY FOR .20 TO .30 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR, USUALLY BETWEEN 25-80K. WE ALSO DO NOT PROVIDE PROPERTIES THAT WE WONT MANAGE. WE STAY OUT OF BAD AREAS AND DO NOT PROVIDE INNER CITY LOW END PRODUCT. 

We also have a dual exit strategy on most homes we provide for our investors. The homes we buy and the zip codes we buy all have re sale comps. We will get you into investments rehabbed for 40-50k that we can sell for 75-85k and if we do not sell then we can rent, owner finance, section 8 for 850-900 a month. This is a dual exit strategy. We have perfected the exit strategies and the management and keeping the assets producing income. 

We have three types of investments that we specialize in: 

1. TURNKEY RENTAL OPTION: in this option the houses would be completed, and rented and generate income the day you close. 
Price will vary depending on property and rents the property can generate. on average houses that rent for 800-950 a month would sell for 35-65k turnkey depending on area and property. 

2. TURNKEY REHAB OPTION: THIS OPTION IS COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT THE INVESTOR KNOWS ALL THE NUMBER AND GETS IN FROM THE BEGINNING. In this option you would purchase a foreclosure that we find from the bank using your funds, we will give you a bid to rehab it use our crews to fix and rent it. In this option you wouldn't be paying a profit margin to the seller so your outlay is less you would get in on the ground floor. The average outlay would be 25-55k depending on area and property. In this scenario you would now be able to sell the property for 35-85k and you are now the wholesaler. MOST INVESTORS ARE JUMPING ON THIS MODEL. THEY LOVE BEING INVOLVED, THE TRANSPARENCY, AND THE LOWER COST BASIS IS ATTRACTIVE. 

3. RETAIL FLIP OPTION: in this option we are purchasing houses that can sell for 150k or less. More desirable neighborhoods, higher comps, and we are buying them out of foreclosure for 65-100k and remodeling them and selling them retail to homeowner buyers for 110-180k. 

With low entry points, high rents and cash flow, experienced rehab and property management companies , experienced wholesalers and Realtor, paperwork systems and processes in place your chances of success have greatly improved.

Latest Realty News from NAR

Can an EU Rule Impact Your Real Estate Business? It Might

What authority does the European Union have over your real estate business? That’s a tricky question, but an E.U. rule that takes effect next month could end up affecting your business in some manner. That’s because any European that comes to your web site to browse listings will be covered by what’s called the GDPR. That stands for General Data Protection Regulation and it won’t let your web site drop a cookie on a European’s computer unless you get affirmative consent. That means a box that says something like, “We use cookies. OK if we put one on your computer?,” has to pop up when someone from the European Economic Area comes to your web site. What’s more, if you process data on a European you have to be ready to delete that data if you’re requested to. That means you have to have a way to identify  that data so you can take the action requested.

As you can imagine, how the EU would enforce this is a big, unanswered question. There will probably be litigation, too. So, it’s possible it will be a while before anything actually happens that affects U.S. businesses. But there are other things to keep in mind. First, the United States might align its rules with the E.U. Second, regardless of that, many U.S. businesses might align their online privacy and security  practices with the E.U. model, regardless of enforcement. That means you’ll probably see more U.S. companies asking for affirmative consent when anyone comes to their web sites. Third, there could be alignment with European rules on data processing, too.

This is all speculation. The rule is real but it’s actual impact here can’t be fully known yet. But you can see where things are heading and it’s not a bad idea to take steps to be prepared for however things shake out.

NAR will be hosting a Facebook Live webcast next week, on Tuesday, April 24, at 1 p.m., Central time (2 p.m., Eastern time) to walk you through what’s happening and what you might do to be ready. The presenters will be Finley Maxson, NAR senior counsel, and Liz Sturrock, NAR vice president of information technology. They’ll be talking with Meg White, managing editor of REALTOR® Magazine.

You’re encouraged to ask questions. Here’s more information on the event: EU Privacy Rule: Are You Impacted?

How Suburbanization Impacts Rural Home Loans

Federally backed home loans from the Rural Housing Service have been called one of the the government’s best kept secrets because buyers can get safe, affordable mortgage financing in areas where few other loan options are available. The underwriting requirements are considered both strong and reasonable, and, maybe most important, homes that wouldn’t be eligible for loans by conventional lenders are often eligible under the federal program. That’s because RHS recognizes that in rural areas, houses are not always built to meet the needs of suburban or urban buyers. The agency’s old name—Farmers Home Administration (FmHA)—says a lot about where the agency is coming from.

That’s why it’s significant that the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which oversees RHS, undertook a reassessment of what constitutes a rural area. That assessment was just completed and in about two months—June 4—a new map of rural areas takes affect. When it does, some areas that used to be considered rural are no longer considered that. One example is Ashburn, Va. Like so many areas in Northern Virginia, it’s being swallowed up by the D.C. metropolitan area. It’s now another suburb.

That means households who might struggle to get financing to buy a home can no longer count on direct or guaranteed loans from RHS. They’ll have to find conventional financing or maybe try FHA.

The good news for buyers in many of these new suburbs is their choice in lenders has probably increased along with the area’s population. In other words, maybe RHS is less needed now, because conventional lenders have moved in to take advantage of the area’s growth. But every area is different. There are probably a number of areas where the choice in lenders hasn’t kept up with growth, so the RHS loans will be missed.

In any case, it makes sense to learn if your area has been affected. The latest Voice for Real Estate news video from NAR talks about this and walks you through how you can see the status of your area.

The video also looks at some things FEMA is doing to encourage growth in private flood insurance options. Thanks in large part to a new consumer advocate in the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the agency said it will allow homeowners to drop their federal coverage and get private coverage instead without incurring any penalty. Prior to this change, you couldn’t do that. You had to keep your federal coverage even if you found cheaper or better private coverage. That consumer advocate, by the way, is there in large part thanks to NAR, which made sure it was part of flood insurance reform legislation that passed a few years ago. We’re now seeing the benefits of that.

In another change, insurance companies that offer the federal coverage can now also offer a private alternative. Again, that wasn’t allowed before. There are a few more improvements like that. The video walks you through them.

Also in the video is an update on competition in the real estate industry. You might recall that it was 10 years ago that NAR and the U.S. Department of Justice entered into an agreement to make sure virtual office websites (VOWs) are treated the same as brick and mortar brokerages in obtaining MLS data to share with people. That agreement expires later this year and the first of two workshops was held in Washington looking at the state of competition today. NAR Associate General Counsel Ralph Holmen (retired) participated in that workshop and made the point that the VOW business model wasn’t a big part of the market 10 years ago and is even smaller today, in part because it involves creating a client relationship with people who want to look at listings on your site. For many brokerages, it’s easier just to offer up listings without having to set up that client relationship first. NAR has said it doesn’t plan to change its VOW policy when that DOJ agreement expires.

The video also excerpts from the NAR Broker Summit that was held in Nashville earlier this month and also introduces a monthly video series NAR is launching for the year, Fair Housing Focus. The video is part of NAR’s recognition of the 50-year anniversary of the Fair Housing Act.

Infrastructure Improvement Means Real Estate Activity

When the Trump administration released its $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan last month, it set in motion a multi-year process that could eventually lead to considerable investment in communities. Of course, Congress must pass legislation to make much of it happen. Although there are some parts that the administration can do on its own, a lot of the plan will require both authorizing and funding legislation, so how close we get to that $1.5 trillion goal is dependent on what lawmakers can agree on in the next year or two.

Regardless, with the country’s roads, bridges, waterways, dams, and other public projects aging, some projects will be getting funds in the years ahead whether or not the plan is all or partly enacted. The question for you is, how will you get involved? Will you get involved upfront, when projects are in the planning stages, or will you get involved after projects get going? Often, bridge replacement means land transactions, because it’s not unusual for a replacement bridge to be built alongside the existing bridge. That means government might have to acquire or condemn nearby property. Or if a road is widened—will that involve acquisition or condemnation of land?

Property values tend to go up after infrastructure improvements are made. In northern Virginia, expansion of the metropolitan subway system had a tremendous impact on property values along the new tracks. Huge condo, apartment, retail, office, and mixed-use projects followed. It triggered a real estate boom.

The administration’s infrastructure plan is featured in the latest Voice for Real Estate news video from NAR. Access that segment now.

The video also looks at why NAR supports the banking reform bill that passed the Senate a couple of weeks ago, why passage of long-term reform of federal flood insurance is just as much about improving communities as it is about continuation of insurance policies, and why Congress needs to make mortgage debt forgiveness relief a permanent part of the tax code. Cyber crime and association health plans are covered, too.
