For both California and San Diego, the forecasts for 2012 are predictingÂ onlyÂ a slight decrease in the number of distressed homes and flat prices due to
We are not yet at a long term equilibrium in home ownership rates and many more “strategic” defaults are in the pipeline for the banks & a higher % of distressed inventory is selling as short sales vs. REO. This strategy is helping banks minimize their losses and are processing the short sales in half the time.
At GII We can attest to all of this through our deals. It appears that not only will our single-familyÂ renovate and sellÂ strategy fit the market conditions in 2012 it may be time to start buying and holding more properties.
For Immediate Release
SAN DIEGO, Release Date â€“ Gabhart Investments Inc. sold the last property in its first micro fund, Gabhart Real Estate Opportunity Fund Series 1, LLC. The fund was invested in the purchase, rehabilitation and sale of multiple single-family homes over a 13-month period.
The homes were located throughout San Diego County with resale prices ranging from $250,000 to $500,000. All of the properties were bank-owned or short sale purchases with rehabilitation costs ranging from $30,000 to $100,000.
Gabhart Investments is currently managing three active funds focused entirely on 1-4 unit residential properties. â€œOur strategy with the funds is to minimize risk for our investors by purchasing multiple properties in each fund located in different sub-markets throughout Southern California. Investors benefit from an average of profits from several projects and they are also insulated from a lapse in one sub-marketâ€, says Curtis Gabhart, CEO.
The investor partners in Fund 1 achieved a 22% to 26% (24% average) annual internal rate of return on their capital depending on their investment date. One of the many unique features of the fund is that as each property sells, investors receive a portion of their capital allocated to that project along with estimated profits. â€œThis structure is attractive to our investor partners as it provides short-term cash flow and allows them to reinvest back into another fund or invest elsewhere,â€ says Nick Walsh, investment manager.
Gabhart Investments is currently partnering with multiple investors in their Series 5 fund. â€œWeâ€™re interested in working with partners that understand our current business plan and share our longer-term goal of expanding into new markets and investments. For example, we are in the process of creating a new fund to invest in first trust deeds within our niche market to provide investors with monthly cash flow and an alternative to our equity partnerships,â€ says Gabhart.

This year I have been invited to present a Â morning and afternoonÂ classÂ for the San Diego Association of Realtor s annual real estate expo.
SDAR is hosting it so there is no cost (sdar charged $45 for this class when I taught in their offices last year) but I will be up-selling ginzu knives and snuggies
at the end of the presentation. Nothing like having snuggies for the whole family as long as yours is of Superman!
Just kidding. Any of you who have been to these courses know I don’t sell anything except……. the fact I am a buyer and that providing you with tools I have learned and used you’ll consider calling Gabhart Investments when you have a great property for sale.
In this class you will learn if the highly lucrative, highly competitive business of commercial real estate brokerage is right for you. This business niche is not for everyone, so attend this class and find out if you are up to the challenge.
It’s not for everyone so don’t expect a bunch of ra ra sis boom ba that anyone can get rich doing it. I will give you a no nonsense run down of the business as I have experienced it.
I will say that if there is a way to get into Real Estate with little or no money (not little or no time) then commercial real estate may be a great avenue. This is what allowed me to transition from doing Real Estate as a hobby to a career that has been very rewarding (and challenging – NO GET RICH QUICK GRASS HOPPAH)
I will say
Real Estate gives me flexible hours (not short hours but time availability to do things like see my kids plays at school during the day etc.)
And work from my H2Office while not in my physical office. Check out this awesome set up.
This Friday at the Town & Country Resort in San Diego
10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m & 2:45 p.m. – 4:00 p.m
University of NevadaÂ may have beat Boise State’s football team,Â but noone is laughing about either town’sÂ real estate market. Meanwhile, San Diego is on the move and getting recognition as one of the healthiest residential markets in the country.Â Mortgage interest rates and home prices areÂ starting to rise,Â so we’re likely to see more buyersÂ enter the marketÂ that want a quality turn-key home with appreciation potential.Â
