How to Turn $10,000 Into $30,000+ in a Year

Most of the time, I only work with under market value property investors with at least $50,000 cash, and preferably $250,000 cash or more.

However, I once started out in San Antonio investment properties without any capital, so I wanted to sketch out quickly how you can make $30,000+ out of $10,000 in a year.

It is possible with my guidance to buy an under market value property with a hard money lender, do $1000-$5000 in clean up and rehab, and flip it to another investor/cash buyer.

On each of these hard money deals, you will need to have $8000 to $10,000 invested. Then, when the deal sells, you will make $8000 to $10000, after your hard money expenses and closing costs.

Hold On!

This is the point where many typical below market value property investors will smirk and say, why bother? Who cares about making a piddly $8000?

Ah :), that is why I financially retired at 28 and you most likely did not. I NEVER turn up my nose at making $5000 or $7000 or $8000 on a deal! Never!

You know what I do? I do 50 of those deals per year, in addition to my large buy and hold investment portfolio, and make another $300,000!

I strongly believe in doing a lot of small San Antonio investment property deals. When you do just four of those deals per year, you can triple your money….transform $10,000 into $30,000 or more. Then you can afford to do more than 1 flip at a time, and do eight per year and make $64,000…..see where this is going?

Of course, in the end, I am a buy and hold investor, and I would advise you after you have at least $100,000 to invest in long term buy and hold, owner financed properties in San Antonio. Then do 2-3 of these quick flips per year to increase your cash as you need it to do more buy and holds.

Here is a fantastic San Antonio investment property for the out of state investor that will make you a quick $8000 to $10,000.

ONE LAST THING!

Before I show you this San Antonio investment property, if you want to turn $10,000 into $30,000, you need to do the following:

  • Listen to what I tell you to do and do not question it.
  • Do not doubt my ARVs or rehab costs.
  • Do not call me every day asking when your house will resell.

I know exactly what I am doing, and it is important for you to trust me.

Out of state investment property investors, this San Antonio investment property has two houses on one lot and offers you a quick $10,000 on a clean and resell flip, or 13-14% ROI on a buy and hold.

What Happens When You Do Your First Deal With Me

So you decided to buy an under market value San Antonio investment property! Congratulations! If you are buying a wholesale property from me and owner financing it as I recommend, you can expect to make 12-15% ROI per year with no further expenses.

When you deal with me, I handle the entire transaction: finding the below market value property, rehabbing the under market value property, and resale. You just provide the capital.

You ALSO need to provide me with your trust that I know what I’m doing. Do not question my rehab costs or ARVs, please, otherwise you need to find someone else to work with.

And here’s exactly how the deal goes down:

  • You sign the contract on Docusign and buy the property for me for – say – $50,000.
  • After you wire funds and it closes at the title company, you wire my construction company the rehab funds – say $10,000 – in two payments (at start of rehab and completion).
  • I perform the rehab in 15-45 days, depending on complexity and weather.
  • I will email you regular updates and send photos of progress. Once the rehab is completed, I will send you final photos, and you send final rehab payment.
  • Now we put the house on the market – MLS, bandit signs, craigslist.
  • House is resold with owner financing at 10% interest, 30 year note in most cases. Closing is at title company usually by Docusign.
  • You set up how your buyer will pay you – cashier’s check or electronic payment to an account of your choosing.

The OTHER option is to do a flip. I will do the clean up or rehab on the house in 15-30 days, and then we will usually flip the house to another investor for a $10,000 profit. I recommend doing at least four of those per year to build up your cash for subsequent buy and holds.

And that is it! If you want to really get wealthy as an out of state investment property investor, you should rinse and repeat this process at least 10 times, or 100 times.

I. Strategy – Invest in Below Market Value Affordable Homes in San Antonio, TX USA
TexasCashFlow.com (John Majalca – Principal, Licensed TX Realtor) is a Texas real estate investment company that buys, sells, rehabs and markets affordable homes in San Antonio TX. These are positive real estate cash flow property investments, and are excellent San Antonio investment properties.

Highlights:

  • Strategy is long term buy and hold of affordable homes 20-30% under market value ($40,000-$80,000 wholesale), with owner financing and no maintenance expenses. Superior cash flow.
  • The under market value property investor owner finances the property to a qualified buyer we find for them – 30 year term, 10% interest, full amortization, no pre-payment penalty.
  • Typical annual ROI will be ~10%. with no additional maintenance expenses.
  • We prioritize positive real estate cash flow over property appreciation in distressed houses. Unlike Seattle investment property and San Francisco investment property, real estate cash flow is our goal.
  • Our neighborhoods and end buyers are mostly blue collar, Hispanic families who work hard and earn $3000-$6000 per month. They are family oriented and have a strong work ethic.
  • Most live their whole lives in these neighborhoods and have strong family ties there.
  • These affordable houses are strong performers in real estate downturns (see page 3 for more details).
  • Active in San Antonio market since 2001, nearly 1000 transactions completed and more than 300 rehabs. We have dozens of cash investors around the US and the world (references available for serious investors with POF).
  • Our principal, John Majalca, financially retired in 2008 with a large portfolio of these fixer upper homes.

We Understand the San Antonio TX Real Estate Market
Since 2001, we have developed a deep grasp of the metro San Antonio area. The affordable homes that we transform are well known for their value and investor return.

These affordable, under market value distressed homes with positive cash flow are available to us under market value for several reasons; the most common source is estate sales. Our principal, John Majalca, has an excellent, 15 year reputation in this market as an ethical, serious and reliable cash buyer of real estate, and is well connected in the investing community. This means good deals often find him, so he can access under market value deals that many investors cannot, netting higher returns for our investors.

San Antonio TX USA — An Excellent, Long Term, Stable Growth Market

San Antonio TX is a fast-growing, booming city, recently cited by Forbes magazine as the fastest-growing city in the US for millennials (ages 20-29). The Alamo City is blessed with a diverse industrial base, hard working immigrant population, low real estate costs, no state income tax, good weather, and a generally pro-business regulatory environment. It also was ranked #3 by Forbes in 2013 in fastest-growing tech spots in the US.

Many out of state investment property investors invest with us, especially investors who have bought Seattle investment property and San Francisco investment property in the past.

About the 2007-10 Real Estate Downturn

While the most recent real estate downturn affected San Antonio as it did most areas, the impact was less pronounced here. In fact, the Brookings Institution ranked San Antonio in 2009 as the top economic performer in the US after the recession. This confirms our experience as investors here. The city’s real estate prices tend to be stable and less volatile than many other metro areas of the USA.

We noticed that the primary negative effect of the recession in San Antonio was in the higher end, consumer retail real estate market, particularly homes from $200,000+. Buying wholesale, under market value – what we advocate – offers protection in a downturn.

It is true that during the height of the downturn, RETAIL buyers were harder to find for a time for our houses, but the owner finance market (our major focus) was unaffected. And, the values of our existing housing portfolio didn’t decline at all. We also found that for a time, we were able to buy some affordable homes for 30% less than before the downturn. This was actually a very profitable time for buying our affordable homes.

Bottom line – our portfolio saw little depreciation in the downturn. And monthly cash flow on owner finance properties was unaffected.

Also, we have at our disposal many competitive hard money lenders that we have work with for more than a decade. Please inquire with us if you need a hard money loan.

III. Our Values

As noted above, we invest in under market value homes in San Antonio TX. The main purpose of this is to provide a superior rate of return for our investors.

However, it is vital to note that we view our affordable housing model as a philanthropic enterprise, as well. Using our owner finance model, we are privileged to offer affordable homes in our area to hard-working, blue collar workers with steady work history and documented income. You can feel satisfied that not only are you earning an excellent ROI – you are contributing to the revitalization of our city and helping a family live the American Dream.

Our company has contributed to this process by rehabbing and reselling hundreds of houses with owner financing to hardworking families. This increases the tax revenues flowing into the city, which in turn is used to build new infrastructure in our neighborhoods. We are thrilled and honored to be a part of this revitalization process.

IV. Our Process

Our real estate investing company handles the entire cash real estate investment process for you with fixer upper properties. All you need to do is to purchase the property, and enjoy the return. We handle all of the details:

  • Property acquisition (title is guaranteed to be lien-free and clear at closing)
  • Property rehab (you receive a detailed, itemized bid; 30 day or less completion)
  • Resale – whether owner finance or retail
  • All closings are handled by West & West Attorneys at Law, P. C., 2929 Mossrock, Suite 204, San Antonio, TX 78230.
  • Closing documents can be Docusigned by email or delivered by mail.
  • We are available to manage your owner finance or rental portfolio. Please inquire.
  • Investor is regularly updated weekly on rehab and resale progress (includes photos).
  • Houses are marketed on MLS, Craig’s List, word of mouth, and with signs posted in the neighborhoods.

About Rehab

Our principal, John Majalca, owns a full time construction company, and all contractors are highly experienced, licensed and insured. We handle the entire rehab project in 21-30 days maximum. All required permits and engineering reports are included in your rehab price. Your detailed rehab bid will be sent to you after closing.
Rehab costs rarely exceed the stated budget; however, if something unexpected arises during the project, we will contact you to discuss options.

Most of our properties have ‘foundation’ problems, but the vast majority are minor and can be fixed for $5000 or less. Most are pier and beam foundation and are quite easy to fix.

V. Record and Returns

Over the last 10 years, we have bought and sold approximately 75 houses per year, the vast majority of which have been owner financed by the investor with ROI ~10%. The rest were either flipped for a 20-30% return or rented out for a 10% rate of return. Several of these projects are located later in this prospectus.

We are able to achieve these returns primarily through the following ways in our fixer upper homes with positive cash flow.

  • Buying affordable homes for 20-30% under market value. We never purchase houses at market value. This offers you better returns, and safety in a downturn.
  • Performing property rehabs at wholesale prices, saving the investor thousands of dollars off of traditional rehab costs.
  • The expert knowledge of John Majalca in our neighborhoods – knowing how much rehab to complete. The common error in rehabbing affordable homes is spending too much. We do not.
  • Our goal is to complete just enough rehab to resell the house.
  • Our end buyers complete the rehab at their expense.
  • Please see specific deal returns at the end of this prospectus.

VI. Fees

Our real estate investing company is a large volume wholesaler, and our fees are reasonable. Our only profits are standard real estate commissions and a small management fee on rehabs in our investment properties.

When we sell the investor a property, we earn a standard real estate commission of 3%. The house usually is under contract (we don’t own it), so it has not been marked up to make us a profit on the front end. When we facilitate the sale of the house to an owner finance buyer, we also earn a 3% commission.

Also, our construction company will perform your rehab of $5000-$20,000 done in less than 21 days in most cases. There is a project management fee of 10%.

Closing Costs

Closing costs on these houses are approximately 3-4%% of the wholesale price, and of the final price on the owner finance resale. On the latter, the closing costs normally are paid out of the buyer’s down payment.

Foreclosures

Vacancies are part of the rental property business, as are repairs and damages by tenants. And in owner finance, foreclosures are part of the business (but repairs and damages expenses are not).

Foreclosures are rare but they do happen. In five years, we may get 10-20% of our houses back. Total foreclosure costs are $1000 to $1500. The house is vacated in 60 days or less and resold. You also get $5000 down again. Foreclosures are usually quite profitable for the investor. We have a real estate attorney available to handle this for you if it ever occurs. We will help you to find a new buyer.

John Majalca, Licensed TX Realtor, has invested in San Antonio TX since 2001, completing nearly 1,000 real estate deals. He financially retired in 2007 and holds a large portfolio of owner financed affordable homes in San Antonio, but continues to invest aggressively in our city. John was born and bred in Ballenger TX, but relocated to Boston MA to complete his undergraduate work in computer science. After college, he had $40,000 in college debt and little capital.

He was attracted to the low real estate prices in our city as well as the strong economy in all market conditions. John carefully selects under value properties in rising neighborhoods north, west and south of downtown, and wholesales them to cash investors. He personally inspects every property he sells.

John knows his neighborhoods, and you can and should trust his judgment on the value of a property, his opinion on its condition, how to rehab it and how to make money with it.

He strongly believes in community service, and is dedicated to the revitalization of blue collar sections of San Antonio. John has been delighted to see the transformation of the city in the last decade, as billions of investor and tax dollars are being poured into construction projects across the area. Also, more blue collar workers are becoming homeowners through programs such as ours, which leads to better, safer neighborhoods and a sense of community.

Note: The following two projects are our more value-priced deals under $40,000 wholesale. They may not appear to be houses that will sell quickly, given the limited rehab. But these houses do sell and produce good cash flow in 90 days or less.

Houses with affordably payments under $600 such as these are in demand in our areas, regardless of how they may look personally to the investor. The house payment is comparable to area rents. These houses are great opportunities for lower income, blue collar contractors to own a home affordably and repair it themselves.

Buy and Hold – 415 Frio City Rd., San Antonio TX 78207

This distressed sale was completed in October 2015. It is a small two bedroom, one bath west of downtown in a revitalizing area. It has 648 square feet, built 1950, only a few minutes from the San Antonio Riverwalk. This is one of our lower priced homes that had minimal repairs: paint, touched up flooring, cleaned. This is a good example of how we do not over rehab a home. This area is in less demand and has a lower income than areas, say, north of downtown. So less rehab is required. It is a good value investment, and the new owners are delighted with their first home.

This distressed property sale was completed in June 2015. This is a three bedroom, one bath house of 950 square feet located at the end of a quiet street near an elementary school, west of downtown. It is approximately three miles from the Riverwalk and Alamo. This house also is a good example of a lower cost house in a lower cost area but one that is still rising. This house did not require high quality finish work to resell it, such as granite and tile and flooring. Instead, the rehab budget of $10,000 was spent on leveling the foundation, inside and outside paint, painting the floor (rather than adding new flooring), finishing the plumbing and clearing trash.

How I Generate $30,000+ Per Month in Real Estate Cash Flow

I have been investing in under market value properties in San Antonio TX for more than 15 years. Unlike many real estate investors, I did not start off with much cash, nor did I have a rich aunt who would loan me money at 8%.

After I finished college, I tried to buy Boston investment property, Seattle investment property and San Francisco investment property, among others, but it was too expensive.

So I returned to Texas and started to invest in below market value properties that cost $20,000 to $30,000. I was amazed when I discovered San Antonio TX, and how one could generate substantial real estate cash flow each month on such inexpensive distressed properties.

I did make some money in the stock market, so in 2001, I was able to purchased my first under market value Texas property for only $30,000 cash. After I spend $5000 on rehab, I then made real estate cash flow of $600 per month on it as I rented it out. That was my first San Antonio investment property.

After that first under market value investment property, I didn’t have much capital left. So, I had to hunt for private money to borrow. It took a lot of phone calls, but I eventually tracked down an investor allowed me to borrow more than $1.5 million over three years to rehab and rent out under market value properties.

I would borrow $30,000 to $50,000 from my investor every few months to do a new deal, and I made about 10% in real estate cash flow on those deals.

After about five years, I was doing very well and had more than $10,000 per month in real estate cash flow, but I was getting weary of doing full rehabs and maintaining properties. That is when I started to use my current under market value investment model:

  • I buy $30,000 to $60,000 below market value San Antonio investment property for cash.
  • I do $10,000 to $30,000 in rehab (sometimes I will not repair the house at all).
  • I resell the property to a blue collar worker with a $5000 down payment and a steady job.
  • Typical terms on the below market value property are $5000 down, $800 per month PITI, $79,900 final price, 10% interest.

Investing in this way gives me real estate cash flow of 12% per year or more without doing the typical landlord repairs that most investors deal with.

I also give my end buyers the opportunity to own their own home. This type of investing has been my main method for almost 10 years. It is by buying under market value properties for cash in this way, and then owner financing them, that i have been able to generate more than $30,000 per month in real estate cash flow.

To give you a good example of how I do these types of under market value deals with San Antonio investment property, here is a great case study we just completed:

My out of state investment property investor bought this ‘junk’ house for $25,000 in November:

k

It had sat empty for years and was part of an estate sale. Now this house was ugly, no question about it. But it is located in an up and coming neighborhood in 78207, where the city of San Antonio has spent millions of dollars putting in running trails, parks, shopping plazas, green space and so on. This ‘junk’ house is only 2 miles from downtown and all the tourist attractions of the city.

Yet this under market value house sat for months and no investor wanted it. I grabbed it and quickly resold it to an out of state investment property investor.

Right next door to this ‘junk’ house were these owner occupied homes:

tampico-6-300x169 tampico-5-300x169

Those houses right next door are worth more than $100,000, but no one wants my under market value ‘junk’ house because it’s temporarily ugly:

Living_DiningKitchen

The conventional investor wanting real estate cash flow cannot see past the ugliness, but I saw the potential here because of the neighborhood revitalization and the nice houses around it.

So, I sold this house for $25,000 to an out of state investment property investor who did $27,000 in rehab (which I did for him in 30 days), which included:

  • Electrical update
  • New flooring (float new floor over that minor foundation issue after it’s repaired)
  • Clean out
  • Update bath and kitchen with tile and granite
  • New light fixtures
  • Paint in and out
  • Finish second bedroom

Note that I own a construction company, and my rehabs are typically 2/3 of the price of most companies’ rehabs.

Below are the after rehab pics:

The ARV on this below market value property is $79,900. We just finished the rehab in the middle of January 2016. And, by early February, we already had an owner finance buyer for it: $5000 down, $850 per month, $79,000 final price, 10% interest, 30 year note.

The house was on the market for less than a month. So on a $52,000 investment, the out of state property investor will earn about 16% ROI with no more repairs because we owner financed the house.

This is the kind of under market value investing I do – I buy ‘junk’ houses that other investors reject and turn them into little gold mines.

This type of property is great for real estate cash flow, and is far superior to what is available to most investors looking for Seattle investment property or San Francisco investment property. That’s probably why most of my out of state investors are from Seattle and San Francisco! I also have many former buyers of California investment property generally who only buy my San Antonio investment property now.

 

 

A $25,000 ‘Junk House’ Case Study – 15% ROI for Out of State Investor

I have made my real estate investing career in buying and selling under market value properties in San Antonio TX.

I like to lovingly refer to my properties as ‘junk houses.’ I love that most investors see them as ‘junk’ and run away from them. I have made millions off of ‘junk houses’ that other investors are scared of.

The smart investor just has to look beyond the exterior ugliness and see the potential of the house and the neighborhood.

I just had yet another under market value success story I wanted to share with you. My out of state investment property investor bought this ‘junk’ house for $25,000 in November:

k

It had sat empty for years and was part of an estate sale. Now this house was ugly, no question about it. But it is located in an up and coming neighborhood in 78207, where the city of San Antonio has spent millions of dollars putting in running trails, parks, shopping plazas, green space and so on.

Note that this is a seller financed property, not a rental property.

Most of my investors wanting real estate cash flow usually buy Seattle investment property California investment property, San Diego investment property, Los Angeles investment property,  or San Francisco investment property, and are shocked at the type of returns you can get here in San Antonio TX with San Antonio investment property – with no repairs!

Why It Is So Hard to Find Affordable San Francisco Investment Property?

Many of my out of state property investors come to San Antonio TX from San Francisco. They find it is very difficult to find affordable San Francisco investment property that will produce passive cash flow.

According to Forbes, 2016 is an excellent time to pick up under market value properties for cash flow in many undervalued markets. One of the most undervalued investor markets is San Antonio, which comes in at #6 on their list with a median price of only $189,000. It also is rated as their #4 boom town.

sa2
San Antonio is a much more affordable place than San Francisco to buy under market value properties.

San Antonio is where I have bought hundreds of under market value properties since 2000. I have made millions of dollars off of below market value, $50,000 houses that many investors would laugh at.

It’s much easier to make real estate cash flow on investment properties in the undervalued market of San Antonio. It is IMHO one of the best cities to invest in real estate given its growing population, affordable real estate, low taxes, and strong economy.

San Francisco Investment Property Hugely Overvalued = No Cash Flow

Meanwhile, San Francisco houses and San Francisco investment property is among the most overvalued in the US, according to Forbes. That magazine states that five of the most overvalued investment property markets are in California: San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, and Los Angeles.

What is driving the lack of affordable investment property in San Francisco? There simply is not enough supply of market value properties for home buyers, which means that California investment property is just too expensive to produce real estate cash flow.

One of the reasons for that, Forbes says, is that many Chinese buyers have come into San Francisco and bought up San Francisco investment properties, paying full cash offers.

Another source says that San Francisco price to rent and price to income ratios have gone up by 25% from 2012 until 2015. The median price for a San Francisco house is $548,000 and is up 24% from a year ago.

In fact, San Francisco investment property houses are getting near to levels that were during the bubble years of 2006 and 2007. That was when prices in San Francisco were near $665,000.

I do not know how San Francisco investment property buyers can survive in that market, or California investment property generally. If you buy for appreciation, maybe you can do well, but that is far too risky for me.

I am an under market value, buy and hold, real estate cash flow investor.

A Good Example of Under Market Value, Cash Flow Property

Like I said earlier, I buy and sell under market value properties that many wealthy investors laugh at.

For example, this below market value San Antonio investment property was sold to my investor for only $25,000:

k

No one wanted this ‘junk house.’ I did! I saw the $100,000 houses next door lived in by the owners, and all of the revitalization going on in this area of San Antonio on the near west side.

Many out of state investment property buyers looking for real estate cash flow would never buy this house. My investor did for $25k, and then I did $27k in rehab:

  • Electrical update
  • New flooring (float new floor over that minor foundation issue after it’s repaired)
  • Clean out
  • Update bath and kitchen with tile and granite
  • New light fixtures
  • Paint in and out
  • Finish second bedroom

The ARV on this below market value property is $79,900. We just finished the rehab in the middle of January 2016. And guess what? By early February, we already had an owner finance buyer for it: $5000 down, $850 per month, $79,000 final price, 10% interest, 30 year note.

That is what you can do with investment properties in an under valued market here with San Antonio investment property. Anyone who buys San Francisco investment property or Los Angeles investment property or Seattle investment property will never see these types of returns or prices.

 

Looking for Real Estate Cash Flow in Under Market Value Property in Seattle? Good Luck!

Many home buyers and under market value property investors in the Seattle WA area have been looking for the last couple of years for affordable homes not too far away from downtown. But Seattle real estate is out of reach for many investors.

I have been reading that it is very tough going. According to Redfin’s Real Time Housing Market Tracker, it is very difficult to find under market value investment property in and around Seattle. In fact, you will have a hard time buying anything under market value within 50 miles of the city.

Redfin reported last year that Seattle actually pulled even with housing-starved San Francisco for the first time in history. Also, Seattle was reported to have the lowest home inventory ever, making it hard to find affordable Seattle investment property.

The nationwide view for housing generally was better in 2015, with prices going up an average of 10% overall. Only 18% of houses were sold above market value around the US.

But in Seattle….ouch. Last March, the median sales price in Seattle was $380,000. This was an 11% rise from the year before. The Seattle cash buyer does not know where to go for cash flow!

If you are an under market property Seattle investor, you are going to have a very difficult time producing passive cash flow a Seattle investment property.

Welcome To Texas, New Seattle Out of State Investment Property Investors!

I sold this ‘junk’ house for $25k, rehabbed it for 27k, and resold it for a 12% ROI for the investor in just one month. It sold for $89,900.

This year, I have actually picked up two near out of state property investors from the Seattle area looking for real estate cash flow. As it turns out, both of them were having an impossible time finding affordable properties that could generate  cash flow.

As is often the case, these out of state investors have good jobs that make them $200,000 or more per year, but they must work 50 hours or more per week, and travel for 1/4 of the year or more. They want passive cash flow on below market value property, and that is what I do in San Antonio TX.

Usually, when a new investor comes in from out of state, such as California or Washington, I will put them into a nicer under market value property in a hot area. North of downtown San Antonio in 78201 is especially hot. Lots of young professionals are moving in there as it is so near downtown and all of the nightlife and tourist activities.

In many cases, I resell these below market value houses after rehab of 10-25k in days or weeks for 12%+ real estate cash flow. Here’s a great San Antonio investment property:

These San Antonio investment properties are reselling fast right now; in fact, I just rehabbed and resold this under market value house in a few weeks after rehab was done.

A $25,000 “Junk” Under Market Value House Success Story in San Antonio

I have made my real estate investing career in buying and selling under market value properties in San Antonio TX that most investors are afraid of.

The under market value properties for real estate cash flow that I buy are scary looking, but you just have to look beyond the exterior ugliness and see the potential of the house and the neighborhood.

The house was on the market for less than a month. So on a $45,000 investment, the out of state property investor will earn about 12% ROI with no more repairs because we owner financed the house.

This is the kind of under market value investing I do – I buy ‘junk’ houses that other investors reject and turn them into little gold mines with steady, no maintenance real estate cash flow.
