Nashville Tennessee Real Estate Development with HBG Capital Founder Brandon Cobb

 

Guest: Nashville Tennessee Real Estate Investor Brandon Cobb is the founder of HBG Capital.  He is also a licensed and bonded General Contractor in TN managing more than $1O Million of new development annually.

Big Idea: Investing in Nashville Tennessee real estate is like most of the U.S. at the time of this recording:  Low inventory combined with an insanely inflationary environment.  There is also a housing shortage which has created profitable conditions for residential real estate developers who are capable of building with scarce & expensive building materials and labor.  Not an easy task.  On today’s episode Brandon & I discuss this situation and the system he’s developed to build profitably.  Shall we begin?

 

 

    

 

Daniel Breslin: Today’s guest, Nashville Tennessee Real Estate Investor, Brandon Cobb, is the founder of HBG Capital. He’s also a licensed and bonded general contractor in Tennessee, managing more than $10 million of new development each year. Investing in Nashville Tennessee Real Estate is like most of the US at the time of this recording, super low inventory combined with insanely inflationary environment. There’s also a housing shortage, which has created profitable conditions for residential real estate developers who are capable of building with scarce and expensive building materials and labor, not an easy task.

In today’s episode, Brandon and I discussed this situation and the system he’s developed to actually build profitably.

Brandon: Yeah, so I could probably speak to Nashville more than I can in the other markets. I know Memphis is a very heavy rental market. Over there, you can still scoop up properties for pretty cheap, but you got to be really careful because your tenant base is if you don’t have a good system to processes for vetting tenants, you will get hosed on that. Knoxville, you’re probably referring to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, tons of cabins going up Airbnb, right? COVID kind of blew that area up. Everybody wants to go on a vacation, but they’re scared of COVID or there’s a lockdown. So those areas where you can kind of get the whole glamping experience or cabin experience blew up, that area’s phenomenal. The Smoky Mountains are obviously one of the best places to go and hike, especially during the fall when the leaves change. A little tip for everybody, right? If you have not been in the Smoky during the fall, it’s great.

Nashville’s probably the only city that has gosh, 30, 40 cranes downtown. So you can just look if you just had a picture of three cities, you be able to identify Nashville from those three because it’s got a ton of cranes. Nashville’s just exponential growth. I think all the national builders are now officially here. They set up shop in the building. That mean, you’ve got these ginormous developments that are being announced every single year. They just announced one. It was like a $2 billion development over in the Bordeaux area, which is your first development where you’re going to have heavy commercial skyscrapers that are kind of outside the downtown core. If you look at Nashville, you get the Cumberland River that kind of rolls through it, and that’s sort of your barrier to all these heavy, deep skyline commercial buildings. Well, now, it’s starting to get outside of that and it’s across the river now. So it’s very interesting, and you’re going to start to see that area really kind of explode. So Nashville’s just a hot, hot, hot housing market.

Fast & Easy Multifamily Lending with StackSource Founder Tim Milazzo

 

Fast & Easy Multifamily Lending with StackSource Founder Tim Milazzo

 

Guest: Tim Milazzo is the co-founder of StackSource, a technology driven engine for funding commercial real estate deals of all types. 

 

Big Idea: Having access to fast & easy multifamily lending, or any other commercial funding, is the first step to scaling a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio.  The commercial loan landscape is extremely fragmented, with many lenders focused on only certain asset types, loan sizes, or other niche spaces at any given time.  StackSource is a national high volume aggregator of lenders, loan types & contacts, providing borrowers the faster method for finding the correct lender for your particular asset type.

Tim & I discuss how this volume of lenders will put you in a position of strength when you’re funding a deal.  Obtaining multiple, competing loan term sheets can be difficult when you’re buying a commercial deal because of the short timeline to closing.

The StackSource platform allows you to provide details of your project-whether multi family, industrial, commercial, etc- and then matches your loan type with those lending institutions currently lending in your local market and funding your specific deal type.  The end result is multiple term sheets allowing you to select the best option for your deal.

This is a contrast to how I’ve bought my last half dozen multi family projects:  calling around asking people I know who is funding this type of deal-then submitting my deal details to that single lender and obtaining one term sheet.  My way is a position of weakness-I am stuck riding with that single lender on that deal.  It’s worked out for me because I’m lucky to have found the right lender for my type of loan.  Shall we begin?

 

 

    

 

Dan Breslin: Welcome to the REI Diamond Show. I’m your host, Dan Breslin, and this is episode 206 on fast and easy multifamily lending with StackSource founder, Tim Milazzo. If you’re into building wealth through real estate investing, you are in the right place. My goal is to identify high-caliber real estate investors and other industry service providers, invite them on the show, and then draw out the jewels of wisdom. Those tactics, mindsets, methods used to create millions of dollars more in the business of real estate. Having access to fast and easy multifamily lending or any other commercial funding is the first step to scaling a multimillion-dollar commercial real estate portfolio. The commercial loan landscape is extremely fragmented with many lenders focused only on certain asset types, or certain loan sizes, or other niche spaces at any given time. StackSource is a national, high-volume, aggregator of those lenders, loan types, contacts, etcetara, providing you, the borrower, with the faster method for finding the correct lender for your particular asset type.

On today’s episode, Tim and I discuss how this volume of lenders that StackSource has aggregated will put you in a position of strength when you are funding a deal. Obtaining multiple competing loan term sheets can be difficult when you’re buying a commercial deal because of the short timeline to closing. It’s multiple calls to the lenders that you’re googling and they don’t do this kind of asset type, etcetara. Whereas the StackSource platform allows you to provide the details of your project, whether multifamily, industrial. commercial, etcetera, and then matches your loan type with those lending institutions currently lending in that local market and funding your specific deal type. So, the end result is a multiple term sheets allowing you to select the best option for your deal, and then proceed with a complete loan package. And this is in contrast to how I bought my last half dozen multifamily projects which was going around, asking people I know who is funding this type of deal, and then submitting my deal details to that single lender, and obtaining a single term sheet. So, I kind of had no other options if that lender did not work out, and I didn’t really have the ability to shop the deal due to lack of time and lack of contacts. Whereas I didn’t have access to this platform.

So, my way was a position of weakness and I’m stuck riding with that single lender on that deal. Now, luckily, it worked out for me because I found just the right lender for just the right loan type who lends in my market but that’s not always the case, and the challenge can be even greater if you’re investing all over the US.

Rental Property Insurance Pitfalls with Attorney Galen Hair

 

Rental Property Insurance Pitfalls with Attorney Galen Hair

 

Guest (Attorney Galen Hair): New Orleans Attorney Galen Hair is an expert in avoiding rental property insurance pitfalls.  At any given time Galen and his team are involved in helping several hundred people obtain full payment from insurance companies for catastrophic loss.

 

Big Idea: Rental property insurance policies are designed NOT to pay out.  Galen Hair & I discuss the process for purchasing a property insurance policy.  I personally own dozens of properties and have flipped well over 1,000, and I’ve NEVER bought insurance with the level of due diligence coached by Galen.  You may not have the insurance protection you believe you bought….

 

 

    

 

Dan Breslin: Today we are joined by New Orleans Attorney Galen Hair who is an expert in avoiding rental property insurance pitfalls. At any given time, Galen and his team are involved in helping several 100 people obtain full payment from insurance companies for catastrophic losses. A catastrophic loss would be considered a very large claim usually a fire in the context of us real estate investors. The thing is, many rental property insurance policies are actually designed not to pay out completely in those catastrophic events.

During this episode, Galen and I discussed the right process for purchasing a property insurance policy. I personally own dozens of properties and have flipped well over 1000 and I have never bought insurance with the level of due diligence coached by Galen on today’s episode, you may not have the insurance protection that you believe you bought. Let’s begin.

Alright, welcome to the REI diamond show. Galen, how are you doing?

Galen Hair: I’m great. How are you doing?

Dan: Nice. I am also great. We had like 60-degree weather here. It’s December in Chicago, which is unique for us this time of year. So no one’s complaining about the weather right now. Whereabouts are you recording in from and live and invest in that kind of thing?

Galen: Yeah, so our office is based in New Orleans. Essentially, that’s where I live. Spend most of my time here. Unfortunately though, given my line of work, I kind of have to follow disasters where they are. So I will move around, probably head to the Midwest next week because of some tornadoes that just kind of blew through everything during hurricane season, I kind of moved from Hurricane to hurricane but most of my life and work are in New Orleans. And the weather is crazy in New Orleans if anyone follows that. So I think today, it’s pretty good. It’s like 65. But a couple of days ago we were in like the 30s. So it’s just all over the place.

Dan: So just to kind of give people a little bit of background, if you would touch on maybe some of your real estate experience, and then kind of encapsulate what it is that you do in your business model now and how that fits in for real estate investors listening.

Galen: Yeah, so real estate-wise, I’m definitely an amateur. I do identify properties that make sense for us to pick up kind of in and around the New Orleans area. And what I’ll do is buy those, fix them up and actively rent them out. I find that that’s an easier model for me than flipping, although the markets are pretty good here. It produces revenue. So for me, as long as it’s cash positive, it’s an investment that I’m kind of interested in. But I don’t do more than maybe two a year.
