Quarterly Investment Update (Q2 2018)

Goshen- Investment Update Q2 2018

Vacation rentals are underway at all three Goshen units but the vacancy rate is still higher than it should be in order to attract a buyer for the property.  The property manager expects that the rentals will be stabilized soon as renters continue to post positive reviews online. Also, we have strong interest from student renters looking for a 9 month lease in September which will create the annual rent roll of an attractive investment property when coupled with the summer vacation rentals. The condo mapping process with the City is underway, as mentioned last update round, in order to maximize upside potential for the sale as an investment property.

Project Stage:  Completed and Cash flowing.

Costebelle- Investment Update Q2 2018

Costebelle is finally on the market and looks fantastic.  We hosted a San Diego Association of Realtors event the first week and received overwhelmingly positive feedback about the property and its ocean views.  Our realtor team, Eric Iantorno and Brett Dickinson from Pacific Sotheby’s hold several price records including San Diego’s highest sales price ever ($24 million) so we are confident we have the right team in place.

Project Stage:  Completed and on Market.

Felspar Investment Update Q2 2018

Felspar is completed and looking phenomenal. A neighborhood BBQ was hosted by the listing agents last week to build awareness about the property. The feedback from the neighborhood has been extremely positive, with many neighbors stopping in to congratulate and thank us for the project we have built in the neighborhood. The word has been getting out on the project completion and we are hoping to have these two great properties sold soon.

Project Stage:  Completed and on Market.

Park Blvd Investment Update Q2 2018

We just celebrated a major milestone for Park Blvd last week as we received 1 out of the 2 permits we will need to build the project! The foundation and parking structure permit was approved on July 12th and we are currently working on the wood frame permit submittal. The process of securing a construction lending partner has begun and we are looking forward to breaking ground as soon as the wood frame permit is received. We are also down to four general contractors in the vetting process.

Project Stage:  Pre-Construction. Foundation Building Permit Obtained.

Granito Investment Update Q2 2018

The foundation subcontractor continues the tedious process of drilling shoring piles and setting the steel beams on the property that will anchor the extensive concrete and steel foundation to the hillside.  We have also been working with over ten sub-consultants and over 50 sub-contractors to get the best bids possible on the remainder of the project.

Project Stage:  Construction.

DiversyFund Income Fund Q2 Investment Update:

As you know, the DiversyFund Income Fund makes loans to the properties under development by DiversyFund, some of which are now on the market.  Please see the project updates for details on the underlying properties.

DiversyFund Growth Fund Q2 Investment Update:

The Growth Fund has made several preferred equity investments such as our Park Blvd multi-family project, Goshen (student housing) and Felspar (Pacific Beach condos), along with a small investment in Granito Drive.  We are currently performing due diligence on a new multi-family value add deal.

New investors often assume that investing is strictly limited to the stock market. But there is a whole galaxy of alternative investments beyond the more typical stocks and bonds that everyone talks about.

As your net worth grows, you might want to take your portfolio up a notch and diversify your portfolio. A properly diversified portfolio includes different types of stocks and bonds—international stocks, for example—and it also includes something called alternative investments.

Why Buy Alternative Investments?

There many reasons for buying alternative investments. The main reason for using alternative investments is to help spread out your risk by giving your portfolio an extra layer of diversification. Alternative investments are seen as a way to diversify against potential downturns in the valuations of traditional investments. Other reasons include the following:

– To lower correlation to traditional stock and bond markets

– To invest capital for a longer timeframe in exchange for higher return potential

– To hedge a portfolio against inflation or rising interest rates

Questions to ask

Should you invest in alternatives? Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. It all depends on your current situation, financial goals, and the resources at your disposal.

There are countless alternative investment strategies being applied in the marketplace today, and simply conducting research and due-diligence on all of them to determine their risk and reward characteristics can get tedious.  But, here are a few questions you should ask yourself when considering your options:

 – Am I investing for a long time horizon?

– Does my portfolio need additional diversification beyond typical stock and bond asset classes?

– Is there a chance I will need to access this money in the near term?

– Is my risk tolerance sufficient for these opaque and lightly regulated investments?

– Do I have a trusted professional helping me find the right investment options?

Historically, access to alternatives was limited to institutional and high-net-worth investors. However as their popularity has increased, they have become more widely available. A good example of an alternative investment that is now made widely available is real estate through crowdfunding.

Real Estate crowdfunding as an alternative investment

Real estate crowdfunding has disrupted the status quo of real estate investing with online platforms that put new opportunities that were previously exclusive to the ultra wealthy into the hands of everyday investors.

According to a recent article in Forbes, less than 10 years from now the real estate crowdfunding industry is expected to be valued at more than $300 billion…a nearly ten-fold increase from today’s industry value of just over $34 billion.

Here are some of the reasons by so many people are investing so much money in real estate crowdfunding:

– They are able to participate in large, high-quality real estate investments with small amounts of capital.

– They can choose specific properties to invest in thanks to the transparency of crowdfunding or select from funds that match individual investment strategies such as income, growth, or more aggressive venture capital portfolios.

– They get a balanced blend of both active and passive investment allows investors to analyze individual opportunities while leaving the buying, managing, and selling to experienced real estate professionals.

– Crowdfunding allows deals to be executed quickly resulting in increased opportunities for real estate investors.

With so many benefits to alternative investments, it’s no wonder they continue to grow at rapid rates. As investors realize the benefits of higher returns and lower risks that many of these alternative investments have, we expect this growth to continue well into the future.

We are opening up what used to be exclusive wealth building opportunities to everyone. Crowdfunding allows us to aggregate dollars to purchase real estate, we develop it manage it, receive the cash flow, and then divide the profits.

Now, you don’t need to be a millionaire or an expert to invest in real estate. Multi-million dollar investment opportunities can be shared for as little as $5,000, and everyone can join in.

 

It’s an age old question– which is better: real estate investing or stocks?

Each option provides a unique opportunity to gain immense wealth and financial freedom, and there isn’t a simple answer because both have their advantages and disadvantages. Trying to figure out if real estate investing or stocks is better is like asking someone which ice cream flavor is better, chocolate or vanilla? It all comes down to your own unique personal preferences. We truly hope this article provides you with all of the information you need to decide which investment option is best for you.

Investing in Stocks – The Benefits

Buying a share of stock is buying a stake in a company. You are purchasing the opportunity to own a portion of a business or corporation and experience all of the ups and downs that it goes through. The stock market offers seemingly unlimited options in terms of the types of companies you can purchase. You can easily diversify your investment portfolio by purchasing a mutual fund or shares in different industries and companies. This is a big advantage.

Another plus with investing in stocks is the ease in which you can make stock transactions. All you need to buy and sell stocks is a connection to the internet and a brokerage account. The transaction costs for buying and selling stocks are typically minimal, particularly when compared to the costs of real estate investing. Another advantage is the liquidity that stocks provide. When the market is open, you can sell the entirety of your holdings with the simple click of a mouse.

Finally, perhaps the most intriguing benefit of investing in stocks is that successful companies will provide shareholders with share price increases as well as increases in cash dividends. That means you are earning money on your shares as well is through the increases in residual dividend income that your shares provide.

Stock Investments – Some Disadvantages

As you can see, investing in stocks provides quite a few benefits. However, this investment option is not without it’s faults. It’s time to take a look at some of the disadvantages that come with investing in stocks.

Perhaps the biggest disadvantage to stocks and a major deterrent for those who fall on the more risk averse side when it comes to investing is the fact that the price of stocks can experience dramatic fluctuations both in the short-term and over the long-term. You can own stock in a company that doubles in value one month and is worthless the next. Anything is possible with stocks. That’s why it’s absolutely crucial to invest in companies that you truly believe in and have thoroughly researched.

Another downside to stocks is the emotional aspect. To be successful with stock investing, you have to have an iron will and be devoted to your investment strategy, even if the world appears to be crashing down on you. Lots of people end up losing a ton of money in the stock market because they let their emotions get the best of them.

Finally, another disadvantage in stock investing is the capital gains taxes you will have to pay if the sale of your stock is considered a short-term. You can wind up with a very large tax bill at the end of the year if you are making significant gains on short term holdings.

Real Estate Investing – The Benefits

When you are investing in real estate, you are buying physical land or property. It’s a tangible investment, versus stocks, which are intangible investments. Lots of people would consider that to be a big advantage. Real estate investments can also provide consistent monthly income if you are renting it out.

Perhaps one of the main benefits from real estate investing is that it allows you to easily leverage other people’s money. Whenever you purchase real estate, an investor is typically required to put down 10%-30% of the total value of the real estate as a down payment. The rest of the money is provided by a lending institution like a bank. There aren’t many investment opportunities that allow you to buy something for a fraction of its total cost. In general, it’s typically much safer to make leveraged real estate purchases rather than buying stocks on margin.

Additionally, when you purchase a property and it increases in value over time, you get to reap the rewards. Any property has the potential to appreciate in value. Real estate investing also provides lots of tax related advantages. This is particularly advantageous if you have a knowledgeable accountant.

Real Estate Investing – Some Disadvantages

One of the main downsides to real estate investing is it’s lack of liquidity. Your money will be tied up in a real estate investment, and if you ever need the cash quickly, it might present a real challenge. You can’t buy and sell real estate as easily as you can with stocks.

Additionally, investing in real estate will require a lot of your time. The process of purchasing real estate can be complicated and lengthy. Another con of real estate investing is that if you aren’t careful, your investment can end up costing money on a monthly basis. For example, if you purchased office space real estate and do not have any tenants, you will lose money on the monthly property fees, maintenance, utilities, and taxes on the property.

Finally, another big con related to real estate is that success can be difficult to achieve. Being successful in the real estate game means hard work, doing your research, and being willing to deal with emergencies at any time. For some people, the responsibility is too big of a burden to bear.

But in recent years, an alternative has emerged in the form of crowdfunding which takes away many of the disadvantages of traditional real estate investing.

Real Estate Investing of the Future

We’ve gone over a lot of the disadvantages that come with real estate investing, but what if there was a way to invest in real estate while avoiding the disadvantages? Enter real estate crowdfunding.

This is a dynamic and revolutionary form of investing that allows people to diversify their portfolio with real estate without having to be a millionaire or an expert. This option allows you to invest in different types of real estate with much smaller amounts of money than usual. Low entry fees, or in the case of DiversyFund, zero-fee investments for investors make creating a diversified real estate portfolio without the normal private equity requirements a reality.

When considering real estate crowdfunding, look for a company with an experienced team that understands the markets they operate in. As with any investment, it pays to take the time to choose the right crowdfunding site for you. For today’s investor, crowdfunding can be a great way to invest in real estate and generate income.

 

 

 

When looking for options to diversify your portfolio, did you ever look into real estate, or real estate crowdfunding?

Real Estate is often considered to be one of the best asset classes to make an investment in. The numerous benefits that come along with investing in real estate make it attractive to those who are able to afford it. However, some of the downsides are too big for many investors to overcome. Traditionally, it costs a significant amount of money up front to invest in real estate. This can be a huge deterrent for potential investors. However, there is a new trend in the investment world that provides investors with access to the real estate market using much smaller amounts of money. It’s a revolutionary concept that has gained a lot of momentum in recent years. Let’s talk about real estate crowdfunding and why this investment opportunity is a great option to explore.

What is Crowdfunding?

To understand how real estate crowdfunding works, it’s important to understand the basic concept of crowdfunding. Crowdfunding is essentially raising money through the collective effort of friends, family, acquaintances, customers, and investors. It’s putting together capital from a large pool of individuals and using their networks to grow the cause. Typically, social media and online campaigns drive the success of a crowdfunding campaign. We are living in a digital world, and this has created countless new opportunities in entrepreneurship and business.

Historically, access to investing in high quality alternatives to the public stock market such as multi-million dollar private market real estate has been limited to super-wealthy investors who get the attention of wall street or large developers.  But real estate crowdfunding has changed things in a big way. With the passage of the JOBS Act,  accredited and non-accredited investors now have a new way to gain entry to this asset class.

Real Estate Crowdfunding Explained

Crowdfunding and real estate is a match made in heaven. There are lots of opportunities for investors to make lucrative financial returns with real estate crowdfunding. As mentioned earlier, one of the major benefits related to real estate crowdfunding is that more investors are able to gain access to real estate market investments with smaller amounts of money.  Real estate crowdfunding platforms act as online peer-to-peer marketplaces that match investors with borrowers, often under better financial terms than what they can get through traditional lending institutions, such as banks.

There are two basic ways to invest in crowdfunding property deals:

Equity investments – with equity investments, Investors make investments in commercial or residential properties and In exchange, the investor receives an equity stake in the property. Returns are realized in the form of a share of the rental income the property generates, less any service fees paid to the crowdfunding platform. Investors may also be paid out a share of any appreciation value if the property is sold.

Debt investments- this means investing in a mortgage loan associated with a particular property. As the loan is repaid, the investor receives a share of the interest. The loan is secured by the property itself and investors receive a fixed rate of return that’s determined by the interest rate on the loan and how much they have invested.

Finding Success in Real Estate Crowdfunding

So, you find yourself intrigued with the concept of real estate crowdfunding. It’s a truly unique opportunity to invest in real estate on your own terms. However, there are a few things to keep in mind in order to achieve success with real estate crowdfunding. Doing your due diligence is absolutely crucial with any real estate investment, and crowdfunding is no different.

There are many real estate crowdfunding sites to choose from. But many suffer from poor investor protections, inadequate volume and/or hidden fees.  So how do you find the best platform for you, and avoid making an expensive mistake?

Finding the best real estate crowdfunding platform for you can be a challenge, particularly if you are a new investor.  

When looking at your options, take a look at the founders and the senior management of the crowdfunding firm or platform. Compare and contrast a few different real estate crowdfunding companies before making any decisions. You want to make sure you are working with an established, well-capitalized company that will survive over the long term. Seek out crowdfunding platforms that clearly acknowledge the risks of investing with them. When in doubt, go with your gut and invest with someone you trust.

What makes DiversyFund different from other Real Estate Crowdfunding Platforms

DiversyFund is only vertically integrated real estate crowdfunding platform, which means that we own all of the assets and properties that are being developed. Unlike other online platforms that function as a broker, matching investors with different third party projects, we offer real estate investments where we are the developer and sponsor, and we manage each investment on our platform. So with DiversyFund, you get an investment partner with skin in the game. Say goodbye to brokers and middleman fees.

Crowdfunding allows us to aggregate dollars to purchase real estate, we develop it manage it, receive the cash flow, and then divide the profits. Everything is done online, so we cut out the middlemen and unnecessary costs like bank fees, document prep fees, storage, and additional operational salaries that are usually passed on to investors.

If you want to become a millionaire, start saving as much as you can as early as you can.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again- you don’t build wealth by working more hours a day. You create wealth by taking calculated risks and being smart enough to delay gratification. The basics are simple: earn money, spend less than you earn, save, invest, rinse and repeat.

Though this whole “save more, spend less” game plan sounds easy enough, the reality is that the majority of us aren’t following it.

 

You are not alone

According to a Bankrate survey, one-fifth of Americans are adding nothing to their savings.

Why?

Expenses were cited by 39% as the main reason people are not saving. The second reason is that their job isn’t good enough, while an equal amount said the main reason they aren’t saving more is because they “haven’t gotten around to it.”

 

 

 

 

The good news: it’s not impossible to become a millionaire

There are no steps, formulas or secrets to become a millionaire. But there are strategies that can help you reach your goals. At the end of the day, you control your future and how you approach it, and that is the biggest determining factor as to whether you will become a millionaire.

Pay yourself first

One of the oldest rules of personal finance paying yourself first.  This means before you pay your bills, buy groceries, or spend on anything else, set aside a portion of your income to save. This habit, developed early, can help you become a millionaire.

There are many ways to save more, but to save big, you need to think bigger than giving up your daily cup of Starbucks. There’s a money lesson to be learned from this couple who spent $30,000 eating out in a year– money that could have easily been part of their savings.

Save half your raises

One way to achieve a seven-figure net worth is to put away all the raises and bonuses you get. But as behavioral finance research shows, depriving yourself too much may cause you to binge later. So as a compromise, save 50%. Spending the rest on yourself should help you feel like you’ve celebrated your success without derailing your financial goals.

Re-evaluate your living situation

The rule of thumb for how much house you can afford is 28% of gross monthly income, but who says you have to spend all 28%? Think about it, do you really need the space, or could you be just as happy if you spent a little less on your home? For example, this couple banked 50,000 by paying a smaller percentage of their income on their condo.

Invest, invest, invest

“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it…he who doesn’t…pays it.” – Albert Einstein

Despite what most people think, investing isn’t an opportunity limited to those who are already wealthy. Forgoing some luxuries can help you save tens of thousands of dollars a year which can be allocated towards investing wisely.

The idea is to take advantage of compound interest. Think of it as the cycle of earning “interest on interest”,  so a little money invested now can end up being more than a lot of money invested later.

When coupled with a rigorous savings plan and budget to make sure you never need to dip into your investment pot, the power of compounding is without a doubt more important than any other financial planning aspect.

you can invest in real estate onlineHave you ever wished you could invest in real estate but didn’t know where to start? You may think the only way is to own properties, but did you know that you can invest in real estate online?

Predating modern stock markets, investing in real estate is one of the oldest forms of investing and is one of the five basic asset classes that every investor should seriously consider adding to his or her portfolio for the unique cash flow, liquidity, profitability, tax, and diversification benefits it offers. The trouble is, investing in real estate  requires a significant amount of capital and isn’t as widely available as other investment vehicles like funds and equities.

While buying property is the main way to invest in the real estate market, there are other money making opportunities you may want to consider.

There is a common misconception that property ownership is a requirement to invest in real estate. But there are many real estate investment opportunities that don’t require you to have hundreds of thousands of dollars on hand or the ongoing responsibilities of building maintenance, landlording, and other obligations of property owners. And these options still offer lucrative, steady cash flows and far less maintenance from an investor.

You can start earning interest in minutes

You can invest in real estate online

Real estate investments required huge amounts of money or the right contacts to access deals. These are multi-million dollar assets and regular investors were never able to participate.

Until now– thanks to crowdfunding real estate platforms like DiversyFund that are disrupting real estate.

Crowdfunding real estate lets investors own an interest in real estate with as little as $5,000 and unlike Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), investors can choose the properties to invest in.

If real estate crowdfunding seems like a way you would like to grow your wealth, here’s what to  look for:

First, find a crowdfunding platform you trust.

Read the bios of senior management and look for real estate expertise. After all, crowdfunding may be relatively new, but real estate isn’t and it’s an industry where experience really counts. Make sure the website is informative and easy to use. Are the investments clearly explained? Is there enough information for you to make an informed choice? Is there investor support if you have questions?

After you’ve found the platform, examine the investment offerings.

While the type of property, expected return and investment period are all important to consider, don’t forget the most important item: fees.

In other words, how much will it cost to hold this investment? Fees reduce your investment return and set you back before you’ve begun. Some crowdfunding real estate platforms charge a 2% property acquisition fee, so for every $1,000 you invest with them, only $980 gets invested in real estate. This might not sound like a lot, but it means the first 2% the property earns doesn’t benefit you, it just gets you back to where you started.

Since fees are a drag on returns, what should a savvy investor do?

Look for no-fee funds that put all your money to work for you.

DiversyFund has pioneered the first no-fee crowdfunding real estate funds: the DiversyFund Income Fund and Growth Fund. Just as crowdfunding disrupted real estate, DiversyFund is disrupting crowdfunding through a vertically integrated structure that controls costs and allows better control of outcomes.

Vertical integration is nothing new. Fast fashion retailer Zara uses vertical integration to adapt quickly to new fashion trends and keep stores current. Most of Zara’s merchandise is manufactured in their own factories, allowing them to introduce a new line of clothes in weeks, instead of the months many traditional retailers take. Similarly, DiversyFund “manufactures” or develops their projects in-house, maintaining the highest standards of quality control and keeping costs down.

To recap, do your homework. Decide if real estate could help you meet your investing goals, then look for a reputable crowdfunding site with an experienced real estate team. Look for solid investments with low, or NO fees. Make sure you fully understand what you’re investing in, then take the plunge. Congratulations – you’re a real estate investor!

Are you always looking for ways to make extra money through smart investments? Have you ever considered real estate?

Recent stock market volatility has caused many investors to reevaluate their portfolios. Markets have been especially frustrating for investors seeking passive income who have been limited by the lack of satisfactory choices in today’s low return environment. The S&P 500 yields around 2%, investment grade bonds yield a little over 3% and even high yield bonds, often referred to as junk bonds, earn under 7% and can carry significant risk. With choices like these, it’s no surprise investors are looking elsewhere for different ways to make extra money.

If this sounds like you, maybe you should consider investing in real estate.

While real estate investing may not be for everyone, it can be very lucrative. Many people have made millions investing in real estate. If you’re looking for ways to make extra money, here are 4 ways to make extra money with real estate investments.

1. Invest in REITs

One way is through investment vehicles, such as Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). Similar to mutual funds, REITs pool the money of many investors to buy a portfolio of properties or mortgages and are required by law to pay most of their income out in the form of cash dividends. REITs can be publicly traded or non-traded. While REITs are a convenient and easy way to own real estate, this convenience comes at a cost. REITs, especially the non-traded ones, can have high fees, and public REITs can experience the same price volatility as any other stock. Real estate limited partnerships offer a variety of investment opportunities for high net worth individuals, but fees can be high and investment terms are often lengthy. Investors in real estate limited partnerships are relying on the expertise and professional management of the general partner for a successful outcome, so take your time and perform your due diligence before investing.

2. Own real estate

At the other end of the spectrum is direct ownership in real estate. It requires a lot more time and effort than the investments discussed above, but the payoff can be significant. Be sure to do a comprehensive and realistic analysis of the property and its potential before purchasing. Is the property in good condition or does it need work? Is it currently occupied and if so, is the rent at current fair market rates? If it’s vacant, what is the average occupancy rate in that submarket and how long will it realistically take to rent the property? Do you have time to manage the property or can you afford to hire a management company to handle day-to-day operations for you? These are just a few of the questions to consider before signing that purchase contract.

3. Invest in a real estate focused company

There are many companies that own and manage real estate without operating as a REIT. Companies that are real estate focused can include hotels, resort operators, timeshare companies, and commercial real estate developers, for example. Make sure to conduct due diligence before you buy stock in individual companies, but this option can be a good one if you want exposure to a specific type of real estate investment and have time to research historical data, company history, and other details. 

4. Invest in real estate online

The above used to be the only ways to make extra money by investing in real estate, but in recent years, an alternative has emerged in the form of crowdfunding. Real estate crowdfunding allows investors to start with small amounts of money, as little as $500 on some platforms, and investments range from funds to individual properties, spanning all the major categories, including office, multifamily, single family and commercial properties. Some deals offer long-term growth while others are designed for current income. These investments are not traded, but investment terms vary so you can find one with a length that’s right for you.

Many crowdfunding real estate sites appeared in the last few years and not all have survived. When considering this option, look for an experienced team that knows real estate and understands the markets they operate in. Understand the terms of the deal you’re considering, especially the fees. Fees can cut into investment returns, so don’t pay more than you need to. As with any investment, it pays to take the time to choose the right crowdfunding site for you. For today’s investor, crowdfunding can be a great way to invest in real estate and generate income.

Goshen is being rented!

Goshen Investment Update – May 2018

We’re currently renting out the 3 unit as short-term vacation rentals, which is the highest rent per square foot given their location and the time of year. Once the rent roll is established, after about two months of rentals, we will begin marketing the property for sale as an investment property. Additionally, since the property is very close to University of San Diego, we will be renting it out as 9-month student housing beginning in September. It should be an attractive investment property for the right buyer, but to keep our options open, we have begun the condo mapping process with the city, which would give us the option to sell each of the 3 units separately if we cannot find a buyer for the whole property. The condo mapping process takes about 6 months. We are exploring these different options in hopes of getting the best sales price for the property and will keep investors apprised of the situation as it unfolds.

Projected completion: Done.  Cash flowing.

Costebelle is getting ready for market!

Costebelle – Investment Update
