NOI (Net operating income) is an estimate only using a nationally accepted metric called the "50% rule" which states that, over time, the expenses of any multi-family property will equal 40%-50% of it's gross rent (35-45% for houses). Expenses include all the usual operating expenses plus an allowance for vacancy, but do NOT include debt service. AGI and MGI are as of 7/13/2020
We are using 45% vs 50% (expense ratio) for our buildings. (So our NOI is listed using 55% of AGI). Our properties have had so many upgrades and repairs that they will most likely expense at the low end of the scale. For example, our actual percentages for 2014 averaged 60.48% (and even higher in previous years!) due to an aggressive capital improvements and preventative maintenance campaign. In other words we spent two years of repairs and upgrades every year so that repairs expense would be much less in future years, when we retire. Because we've "deliberately" spent more on repairs and upgrades during our holding period, they should be LOWER during YOUR holding period. Of course there is no guarantee, as a building's performance will hinge on many factors, including quality of management, utility and other fluctuating costs, etc.
There is one & only one scenario that we may entertain in regards to PARTIAL SHORT TERM seller financing: Banks typically loan only 75% - 80% of a buildings value or price, leaving the buyer to come up with 20%-25% of the purchase price. We will seller finance 10% of the selling price, so that you only have to come up with 10%-15% vs. 20%-25%. This is a very common technique. Two caveats: 1.) You must have rock solid credit, and we will of course hold a 2nd mortgage. 2.) Some banks will put restrictions on how you can handle the payback of this seller financing. For example, not allowing you to make payments for a full year, and/or requiring a certain profitability before payments are made to us. This is a deal breaker and we will need to be sure these restrictions will not be present before we begin the process. This must be step #2 after the purchase and sale.
