Understanding Multifamily Lingo : “Rent Concessions”

blog May 01, 2020
Rent Concessions are an example of an "income reducer". Here are examples of Rent Concessions and why they are income reducers!

Rent concessions are what we call an income reducer. Income reducers are those things that bring your report from the gross potential income down to the gross collected rent. Everything in between is what we call an income reducer. Rent concessions are an example of an income reducer. Typically you don't like rent concessions. 

There are properties that offer rent concessions but don't report it. I caught somebody doing this one time when I just did a Google search on the address of the property. A Craigslist listing popped up, showing that they're giving away $200 free rent for the first month. I went to the seller, I said, "Hey, you're giving away 200 bucks." He goes, "Yeah, yeah." I said, "It's not showing up in your books." "Oh, it just started doing that. It hasn't caught on yet." But he never disclosed that they were doing rent...

Understanding Multifamily Lingo : “Net Operating Income VS. Net Ordinary Income”

blog Apr 24, 2020
What's the difference between Net Operating Income and a Net Operating Income?

What's the difference between the net operating income and the net ordinary income? 

Well, technically, nothing, but you have to understand what you're defining here. When you say net operating income, you're talking about a multifamily property - NOI. When you're talking about a net ordinary income, you're talking about every other business. 

So, a net operating income is unique to multifamily. And net ordinary income is not - it talks about every other company. What happens is, when you become experts in multifamily financial statements and when a broker sends you the documentation, you're going to be able to look at it right away and know whether you've got a good report or something that is one step above a cocktail napkin. 

And the easiest way to do it, is to look at the income, the expenses and the line that says net ordinary income. If the financial statement that they're giving you...

Understanding Multifamily Lingo : “Capital Stack”

blog Apr 10, 2020
This is always the fun one! I spoke to many folks on my Podcast and they talked about Capital Stack. Then, I get so many emails asking "What is a Capital Stack?" 

Capital stack is nothing more than all the money you need to raise in order to buy that property, and it's going to come in a couple of different forms. It's going to come in debt, or your mortgage. 

"Well, I got an 80% loan-to-value." 

Great, 80% of your capital stack has just been taken care of. 

Now we got 20%. Well, where is that going to come from? 

"Well, my pocket, I could put down 5%." 

Okay, fine, now we need 15%. Where is that going to come from? 

"Well, I got investors. "They're going to come up with 10%." 

Good, now we're at 95%. Where's the other 5% going to come from? 

"Well, the seller's going to give me a seller financing." 

Boom, we just got our 100% capital stack. 

That's what a capital stack is. That's all it is. 

It's where all of the money is...

Understanding Multifamily Lingo : "Absorption Rate"

blog Apr 03, 2020
This is what we need to take into consideration when we are doing a value add, kicking people out, cleaning up the units, increasing the rents and putting it back on the market. Find out how to get the absorption rate in that marketplace. You better know what you're talking about especially when you are speaking to your investors!

You need to know, in your calculations for determining the cost of this value add proposition, what is the absorption rate in that particular community. That's the amount of time it takes for a new unit to be absorbed into the market and by a tenant. 

You have to determine how long it takes for a new unit to be leased up by another tenant. If it sits on the market for four months or if it is showing a four month absorption rate, you've got to figure that into your calculation. 

Once the deal is closed and once that unit is put back on the market, you’ve got to hold that unit for four months in order to find the right tenant. And it's not...
