Hi all, please disect this deal.
A broker that helped a developer putting a condo conversion deal came to me presenting me with this deal. It is to close on Sep15,2003. I will have to put up $400,000 to get 33% of profit. All the lender financing had been arranged.
This is a brick building currently a rental, underground parking. It has 8 upper floors plus a ground floor. It has a total of 34 units. 18x 1-bdrm, 16x 2-bdrm.
All the units are separate titled for condo. The developer will do the reno.
The developer pre-sold 2 units (show suites) @150,000 and the purchasers will advance $300,000 at closing.
At closing, this is the amount of cash:
32 units value at $2,805,000
Lender finance 85% LTV at 13% $2,385,000
Simultaneous close, 2 pre-sold units 300,000
Deposits by developer 25,000
I put up equity cash 400,000
Total cash 3,110,000
Purchase price $2,980,000
bank closing cost, legal, agent 111,000
Total cash needed to close 3,091,000
The developer put up $25,000 but the lender ties up all his current home using 2nd mortgage, and all his personal assets (so I am told). I am equity partner but not on title so I don’t have to be microscoped by lender, after closing I can register as 2nd. The realtor told me that she had seen the work done this developer, it was top notch.
There is $19,000 cash left over at closing for misc. Although the purchase price is $2.9M, the lender finance LTV 85% based on 32 units instead of 34 because 2 units are sold at closing (2.9M x 32 / 34 = 2.3M).
The lender also put up a $600,000 construction loan facility @13% interest. The timeline for completion of renovation is May,2004 (unrealistic?)
The building is bought at 90,900 per unit. The developer itemized the reno cost =$30,000. Realtor estimated she can sell them for $161,000 per unit. (Which is pretty close to the current selling price per square foot per unit). So there is about $40,000 profit.
Although there is $40,000 profit, the final profit after various cost and interest is estimated to be $660,000. So I get $220,000 for putting up $400,000.
Do these number make sense? Should I go on title too? Should I get better % of profit?
