A BiggerPockets $635,000 Joint Venture

For those of you who have been following me here on Bigger Pockets I'm sure you remember the $625,000 Joint Venture I blogged about a few months ago. If not please take a look at it Here

We recently closed on another deal pretty similar to that one.


This 21 unit apartment building is located on the west side of Cleveland Ohio.

Normal 1420213458 4708 Pearl Rd Front Of Building

  • 9-2 bedroom units
  • 12-1 bedroom units.
  • 2 separate coin operated laundry rooms.
  • Located on a main road right near the Parma/Old Brooklyn border.
  • Storage Shed


Price $635,000.

The building brings in an average rental income of $10,895 per month.

We have a central boiler system so we are paying for water & heat. I expect this building to produce us an annual net return just over 10%.


We had partnered with a Bigger Pockets member. He put up $5,000 EM. Myself & my partner John(G.C.) performed inspections on the building. Everything was a go. Terms, splits etc.


Our partner had to pull out of the deal due another deal he was involved in. I spoke with my sellers & explained that one of my partners would be unable to complete the deal & at this point the deal is dead. I asked the sellers for a couple days to piece it back together. The sellers agreed to give me two days to put the deal back together before putting it back onto the open market. 


I presented the deal to one of my biggest partners/clients @Chi Cheung We had met Chi on Bigger Pockets last year & have been busy building him a sizable rental portfolio in Cleveland consisting of single family homes, duplexes, & a small commercial complex. (Perhaps that's a blog for another day) I did blog about one of our first deals with him Here

Chi was interested in the deal. We were back on.


 We ended up doing a 3 way split. HWPG taking 1/3 ownership, Chi taking 1/3 ownership & a friend of Chi's (Wing) who had came out to Cleveland with him last year took the other 1/3.

All three parties split cash flow/profits into equal 3rd's.

HWPG performs all property management duties at it's own cost.

Repair costs are split evenly between the owners & performed by HWPG

We assumed the mortgage of the sellers.

The remaining $134,627.11 was paid in cash at closing as follows.



HWPG-$10,770.17 & $12,245.00 After closing.
