Branny, would you mind elaborating on the failed acquisition of CREI? Given that the current round of funding was largely justified for this purpose, personally I was surprised and a bit confused by the update this morning. It was not entirely clear to me if you've decided to give up on the acquisition entirely or if it just hasn't happened yet. Could you clarify this? Thanks!

There was a deadline of funding of something like April the 15th to fund their first property. In order to fund it, Havelock & I wanted me to be able to meet with the CREI owner/manager personally by flying out to NC and inspecting his operation/properties/ect. I tried several times to get out there, and at no fault of CREI (Or myself for that matter) I couldn't make it out. Flights kept being delayed/pushed off and/or cancelled.

This isn't to say we can't or will not fund CREI properties in the future, however the first go-around has not come to fruition.

I'll have to check the numbers, but the CREI purchase accounted for 1/3rd of this current round of IPO's funding, the rest was for additional properties.  As it stands now I expect to be able to leverage our current properties which will do away with the need for additional funding rounds and help us to scale greatly.

So the roughly $85k raised during this IPO will be used to acquire more property?

Quick update/outlook on the company since we've wrapped up the last round of funding.

The 2nd HL round of funding has completed with a total of 23,100 shares sold @ .0075btc/ea or ~164.59btc in realized proceeds.

We are still negotiating on the property on Walnut street. It would be a good fit for our portfolio and generally quick rehab (Mostly limited to flooring & painting work). Total rehab + purchase would be under $41k with an expected ARV of $75k + $750/mo in income.

Financially we're in great shape with good BTC reserves, cash reserves and of course tons of equity in our properties since nothing is leveraged at this point.

Right now we have two major goals for the next 3 month period :

#1 - Flip a house
#2 - Get leveraged

The reason for this process is that by flipping just 1 house, we insure a fantastic balance sheet to show to the bank (And investors) which then will seal the deal on #2 coming to fruition. As stated, the purpose of subsequent funding rounds has been to get to the point we have enough cashflow to approach a lending partner to help us leverage. Our book value is around $475k which at 70% LTV would allow up to $336k worth of funding. Of course, funding this amount will severely eat into free monthly cashflow, but would allow us to buy a nearly identical portfolio of further investments. If this took place, we should expect roughly $10,000 of FREE net cashflow monthly from all properties (Including properties we will be buying with our current cash/btc reserves).

Obtaining leverage is crucial to rapidly growing the business, but not critical to our well being. We have ample cashflow and reserves to weather most storms that could become problems in the foreseeable future. Flipping or developing several properties a year would help boost up our bottom lines which the banks tend to look at. Just 4 flips per year would grow our balance sheet up to 300% of where it is expected to be at complete occupancy.

Our 6 month goal right now looks to be developing a few properties. By this I mean acquiring building lots, building a spec home or two then either flipping it or renting it out. I have had several valuable talks with developers and working on a pricing strategy that works for our business model. The reason that this could be advantageous over utilizing our current structure is that it accesses a workforce outside of our own and allows us to continue to work on our projects. By outsourcing we free up management & workloads by a great deal.

If you have any questions or comments please let me know.

Here's a short demo video of property #7 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U70UGIPvIeE


Right now we're looking at a frontend for the consumer/DIY portal. The vote was "Property Emperor" in the chat, so we're using that for the time being as the front-end name for consumers for the videos.

It isn't a bad house at all, will look tons better when we get it done. The best part is that it was re-wired no less than the late 1970s. This is very good because they cut out (And it's obvious) the old wiring from the 1920s-30s and replaced it with new stuff. Old KnT wiring always scares me due to how often fires happen with the stuff. KnT wiring eventually dries out and then you're left with bare wires running around your house. You're just 1 short away from a fire.

Walnut inspection was completed today, a few leaks in the house, gonna ask for $750 off list price due to the issues (Nothing overly major thankfully). Otherwise property is as it seems to be, not a ton of work needed.

Sounds like a good place to make some nice gains on! Any word on the renters that hadn't paid yet?

They paid up Smiley

Dividend distribution & financial performance for April 15th-May 10th.

Here are the totals from our properties.


W. Mill - $700
Logan - $800 (Two months of rent, tenants paid up)
Scioto/Union - $900
Scioto - $900 (There is a slight delay in payment to us from MHA because of some really stupid section 8 rules, we will pay out on it anyways).

$3,300 net income for May * 46% (All properties are at 46% currently)  = $1518.00

E. Mill is almost done in terms of rehab, we expect $500+ in income (net) from the property.

Mulberry is still waiting rehab, significantly less work than E. Mill so it should be quick (Expecting $900 net income from this one)

Walnut closes supposedly on the 15th, very short rehab time estimated as well, $550-$600 in net monthly income expected from this property.

$437/BTC price currently / $1518 = 3.474btc dividend payout

151,537 shares / 3.474btc = 0.00002293 payout, a 39% increase from last payout.

3.474btc * 12 / 940btc (Current RENT mkt cap) = 4.4% APY

We expect another $2,000 of net income once the other properties are rented which would increase our div yield by about 60%. This includes no extra income from flipping, rent-to-own deals or other income which is what we are working towards.

Total portfolio value (once 100% occupancy & rehab) is estimated to breakdown this way :

W. Union - $115,000
Logan - $60,000 (A increase from $55,000 on last reports due to good market increases)
Scioto/Union - $85,000 (Based on a very recent, very close sale @ 20% simple ROI)
E. Mill - $80,000 (Revalued due to recent comps)
Mulberry - $75,000
Scioto - $65,000
Walnut - $75,000

Total NAV = $555,000 or 1,270btc based on current values or .0083btc/share. This does not account for cash or BTC in the bank but only assets.

Additionally we still expect a little over 100btc in the bank after all repairs are expected to be completed. This can be used on an additional property purchase should we so choose.

Great job Branny!

Maybe we'll make it back to the price you were at 1 year ago(?) in a few years time.

Branny, when do you see getting leverage/loan?  A year from now?  Less or More?  Just curious in the planning on that...
