This entertaining, content rich 1-day boot camp is designed for those that want actionable data, clear directions and a defined roadmap for investing in apartment complexes.
Multifamily Fundamentals - Let's Start With The Basics
We will start at the beginning, with all the fundamentals of Multifamily. You will learn why apartments are so fundamentally different from single family units. We will talk about how they are valued, how are loans underwritten. We will talk about multifamily cycles, typical investment length, risks and benefits, Classes of multifamily buildings and how to identify them. We will understand terms like NOI, Cap rate, DCR, and how to use them when buying and selling. You will be introduced to the top 6 reasons that people buy apartments (and a couple might surprise you !!).
Then, we are going to go deep into the 4 phases of a Multifamily project - Pre-offer, post offer, post-purchase and sale. In each phase, there is critical knowledge that Neal will pass on, that will prevent extremely costly mistakes that could result in loss of your entire investment.
Is Your Metro Any Good?
Now it's time to get down and dirty. We will focus on your city and MSA (Metropolitan statistical area) for apartment investing. Is your backyard any good for Multifamily? What are the best areas for 5-year future rent increases? What areas are going to hurt by overbuilding? Who are the top listing and buying brokers in your market? Who are the top property managers?
Detailed, up to date information will be provided on each submarket in your metro. With detailed charts and graphics, we will discuss vacancy rates, rent growth, population growth, crime, net absorption, job growth by industry, median household income, demand, supply, expenses (by asset class), historical sales transactions, rents by submarket and a lot more. If we have time, we will also trace the 'path of progress' in your metro. You will learn more about your metro than you ever have. And, more importantly, you will learn how to use this information to buy the right product at the right time.
Hands On Lab: Let's Underwrite Some Properties
The attendees will be split into groups, and will use underwriting templates that we will provide to underwrite several properties. The goal of the group will be to make an intelligent, data driven decision on whether the property is a clunker or a catch. Neal will walk the attendees through the template, and will give you rules-of-thumb to calculate expenses and income.
