11/20/2018
More
There are several ways to measure the returns of any project. Some are more accurate than others. One of the best ways is the equity multiple. In its simplest calculation, it is the total returns you receive divided by the capital invested. For example, if you receive a total of $250,000 of distributions and your initial investment was $100,000 then your equity multiple is 2.5. It does however have a down side. TIME.

CTW 068: Reversion Cap Rates in Today's Market

11/7/2018
More
As a passive investor, one of the most important areas to look at when analyzing deals to invest in is the reversion cap rate, or in other words, the cap rate at exit. If, for example, the property is being acquired at a 6% cap rate and the reversion cap rate is 6% as well, there's a good chance the sponsor(s) on that deal is being too aggressive. In today's market and environment, it's a good idea to be conservative. I would even go further and mention it's a must. A good "rule of thumb"...

CTW 064: MF Direct Mail

10/24/2018
More
Does sending direct mail to multifamily work? Definitely. Does it work like it does with single family where you can have consistent success? Probably not. BUT it does work.

For example: you wouldn't and maybe shouldn't send direct mail to owners of large (200 units) multifamily properties because they are more sophisticated and are less likely to respond to your mail. But you should send to owners of maybe 50 units...
