BRRRR: A Great Win in the Summer Heat

Whats up, BP? It’s been a while since I have talked about one specific deal, but this was a huge win for an out of state investor, who is a longtime client and friend. We take great pride in taking problematic properties and turning them into cash flowing assets. Although the Tucson market was once quiet, there has been a huge amount of growth in recent years.

This is another successful BRRRR strategy investment. Don't know what the BRRRR strategy is? Do yourself a favor and take a minute to learn about this incredible investment tool [https://www.biggerpockets.com/renewsblog/brrrr-buyrehabrentrefinancerepeatprimer/]. As the market becomes more competitive, the ability to be creative is an essential tool to have. On occasion, the current use of the property isn’t the most worthwhile or being used to its full potential.

Take this project for example, originally a mismanaged duplex; we decided the best plan of action would be to turn it into a five-bedroom three bath SFH to allow for maximum rental income. We have noticed that students at the University would rather live in a large SFH than two separate apartments. This allows them to pay lower utility bills and have more living space. This property is two blocks north of the University of Arizona and will be a great rental for years to come.

Although the Tucson market is currently very competitive, being able to identify the best use for a property has allowed us to create a massive win for the investor and for our team. As we continue to pursue investment opportunities, it is important to reflect and celebrate significant victories like this.

Our investment team was able to identify this project and the potential it had as an investment; the construction team completed this project efficiently and beautifully. Our management team had the property leased before the construction was complete, which is a massive feat by itself. Overall, we took a property that wasn’t being used to its full potential and remodeled it into a beautiful cash-flowing asset that should rent for many years.

nice remodel. For those of us who haven’t utilized a company like yours ( DIY types) can you give us an idea of your companies take of the profits?  I assume commissions are not included in the numbers you’ve posted.

 The cost to the investor is shown in the example. We did make commision on the purchase of the property, like a traditional real estate transaction. As for the construction, that is the total cost the owner was charged for the work. The Management fees are incorporated into the expense multiple of 30%. I would be happy to go into more detail if you would like.
