In 2021, Charlie Kao and I were considering buying an off-market self-storage facility in northern Michigan. All of the numbers looked great, but the one sticking point was that the seller wanted to stay on as property manager. On top of that, he insisted on being paid twice the going rate for a property manager on a facility of that size.

As a rule, it's never a good idea to hire the seller as your property manager, especially when you're investing in a value-add property. But in this case, there was another group that was willing to hire him at his price. We couldn't understand why they were willing to do that.

Charlie and I were about to walk away from the deal. But then we asked ourselves, "Why is the other group willing to hire him, and how does it actually make sense in this case?"

Check out this week's episode of Next Level Thursday to find out.

Recently, the city of San Diego, California implemented a new program to help increase housing stock and affordability.

They created a bonus accessory dwelling unit, or ADU, program that allows investors to build 10, 20, 30 or more units where a single-family home existed before.

My guest today sees this program as a ‘pot of gold’ for real estate investors, and he’s going to share how he’s been leveraging this program to create new profit streams for himself and his investors.

Shawn DiMartile is the co-founder of Takeoff Capital, a private equity firm with over $50 million in assets under managements spread across 300 units.

Today Shawn discusses the important ways in which ADUs can help increase housing stock, how San Diego has made ADUs a priority, and how he and his investors have been leveraging this strategy in their portfolio.

One of the after effects of the Covid-19 pandemic has been an increase in people working from home, and a decrease in the need for office space. This has had a dramatic effect on office buildings as an asset class and continues to be a problem with only half of the workforce returning to the office.

Many developers are considering re-purposing vacant office buildings into residential and apartment buildings. But doing that can be a lot more difficult than it seems.

Today’s guest is nearing completion of an office to apartment conversion, and he’s here to share his experiences, both good and bad. We’ll discuss his challenges working with architects, engineers, and city inspectors, and the delays he’s encountered along the way. Andrew will also share the silver lining that makes it all worthwhile and why he’s bullish on the Baltimore market.

Andrew Hinton is the acquisition lead for GL Capital, which focuses on apartment syndication and development in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia.

In 2021, Jeremy Garcia's commercial realtor brought him a semi-off-market listing for a 14-acre vacation resort located on the shores of Lake Michigan in North Muskegon.

The resort had been closed for two years due to Covid, and the seller's reported income pre-Covid didn't come close to justifying the $2 million price tag they were asking for.

They also weren't willing to consider seller financing, which seemed to be the only way to justify their price since the lack of a financial history made the property un-financeable.

So how were we able to close on this property in 2022?

In this episode of Next Level Thursday, Jeremy and I break down the challenges we had acquiring this vacation resort and the strategy we employed to find a lender for an un-financeable property.
