Multifamily Legacy Podcast

Jan 9, 2019

What happens when you sign the dotted line and officially go under contract? That doesn’t mean it’s a done deal. You’re not out of the woods yet because there’s still a lot of moving parts to manage.

Here’s part 2 of 3 regarding my University Crossings deal. I share what went wrong, what went right, and how I overcame obstacles that are often part of multifamily transactions.

Topics on Today’s Episode:

  • Receive required items/documents identified on Purchase and Sell Agreement (PSA)/Letter of Intent (LOI) from seller
  • Seller’s Coma: Seller is unmotivated to give you details due to poor record keeping or they’re trying to hide something
  • Establish site visit and physical inspection to rate/asses property’s major systems
  • Give all vendors the same instructions; ask them for a fair and do-not-exceed bid
  • 45 calendar days for due diligence and another 45 calendar days to close
  • Perform financial audit of property’s current leases on file
  • Engage a lender to get a loan for the property based on occupancy percentage; loan is in jeopardy and extension may be needed if percentage isn’t maintained
  • Owner should never try to negotiate with a broker or seller; let others talk for you
  • Lack of communication between all parties involved causes problems and delays; request phone conversation with seller to offer clarification
  • Concessions may be necessary, even if something is not your fault; you’ll end up making that money and more back
  • Lender isn’t ready because they did not process the loan to close on the property, which put me at risk of losing money
