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.

Latest Realty News from NAR

REALTORS® Reported Slower Homebuying in Many States in August 2018

Based on REALTORS® who reported about their transactions in August 2018, home buying activity slowed compared to the level of activity one year ago, according to the  August 2018 REALTORS® Confidence Index SurveyThe REALTORS® Buyer Traffic Index[1] slid to 57 in August 2018 from 69 one year ago. To be clear, homebuying activity was still broadly “stronger” than “weaker” (index is above 50), but the lower value of the index indicates a smaller fraction of respondents reported “stronger” conditions in August 2018 compared to the fraction who reported “stronger” conditions in August 2017.

The REALTORS® Seller Traffic Index remains below 50, which means more respondents reported “weaker” than “stronger” seller traffic in August 2018 compared to the level of selling activity one year ago. Lack of supply remains the major obstacle to homebuying and the factor driving up prices and eroding home affordability.

 

The REALTOR® Buyer Traffic Index pertaining to buyer traffic conditions in June-August 2018 (relative to one year ago) declined in 38 states compared to values of the index pertaining to buyer conditions in June-August 2017, with large declines in California (-15), Washington

(-23), North Dakota (-27), Louisiana (-17), Tennessee (-14), and New Jersey (-11) and Vermont (-11).

In major states such as California, Washington, Texas, Florida, New York and Massachusetts, homebuying has moved slightly downwards or remained flat during January-August 2018 compared to full year 2017, based on the average of the monthly REALTORS® Buyer Traffic Index (see charts and the data visualization tool below). Because employment is still rising strongly, the slowdown in homebuying may likely be because of higher home prices and higher mortgage rates. In August 2018, the typical monthly mortgage payment was $95 more compared to the payment in August 2017.[2]  The REALTORS® Seller Traffic Index indicates that supply has been modestly increasing, although supply is still tight in many areas (indices below 50).

About the Realtors® Confidence Index Survey

The RCI Survey gathers information from REALTORS® about local market conditions based on their client interactions and the characteristics of their most recent sales for the month. The August 2018 survey was sent to 50,000 REALTORS® who were selected from NAR’s1.3 million members through simple random sampling and to 8,386 respondents in the previous three surveys who provided their email addresses. There were 4,639 respondents to the online survey which ran from September 1-11, 2018. NAR weights the responses by a factor that aligns the sample distribution of responses to the distribution of NAR membership. The REALTORS® Confidence Index is provided by NAR solely for use as a reference. Resale of any part of this data is prohibited without NAR’s prior written consent. For questions on this report or to purchase the RCI series, please email: Data@realtors.org

[1] In a monthly survey of REALTORS®, respondents are asked “Compared to the same month last year, how would you rate the past month’s traffic in neighborhood(s) or area(s) where you make most of your sales?” Respondents rate buyer traffic as “Stronger” (100), “Stable” (50), or “Weaker” (0) and the responses are compiled into a diffusion index. An index greater (lower) than 50 means more (fewer) respondents reported “stronger” than “weaker” conditions in the reference month compared to the conditions in the same month last year. A higher value of the index in any reference month compared to the value in another reference month means a larger fraction of respondents reported “stronger” conditions in the former period than the fraction of respondents who reported “stronger” in the latter period.   

 

[2] Based on a 10 percent down payment on a home priced at $264,800 in August 2018 with 30-year fixed mortgage rate of 4.88 percent and a home priced at $251,800 in August 2017 with a 30-year fixed mortgage rate of 4.25 percent.

August 2018 Existing-Home Sales

It takes approximately 29 days for a home to go from listing to a contract in the current housing market, down from 30 days a year ago.

  • From July 2018, two of the four regions experienced declines in sales. The West had the biggest decline of 5.9 percent followed by the South with a dip in sales of 0.4 percent. The Northeast had the largest gain of 7.6 percent followed by the Midwest that had an incline in sales of 2.4 percent.
  • Three of the four regions showed declines in sales from a year ago. The West had the biggest drop in sales of 7.4 percent.

The South led all regions in percentage of national sales, accounting for 41.8 percent of the total, while the Northeast had the smallest share at 13.3 percent.

  • In August, single-family and condominiums sales were unchanged compared to last month. Single-family home sales fell 1.0 percent and condominium sales were down 4.8 compared to a year ago. Both single-family and condominiums had an increase in price with single-family up 4.9 percent at $267,300 and condominiums up 2.0 percent at $244,500 from August 2017.

[1] Thanks to George Ratiu, Managing Director, Housing and Commercial Research and Gay Cororaton, Research Economist for their data analysis and comments to the RCI Report.

[2] Respondents report on the most recent characteristics of their most recent sale for the month.

[3] An index greater than 50 means more respondents reported conditions as “strong” compared to one year ago than “weak.” An index of 50 indicates a balance of respondents

who viewed conditions as “strong” or “weak.”

[4] The difference in the sum of percentages to the total percentage of sellers who offered incentives is due to rounding.
