We have all heard the old saying, “Necessity is the mother of invention”. This came upon the principals of Scottsdale Real Estate Investments earlier this year when they had acquired nearly 100 properties over the past three years. These were mostly single-family residences (SFR) purchased with joint venture (JV) partners, mostly from the Scottsdale/Phoenix, Arizona area. Many of the properties were out-of-state, and some were bought in bulk from sellers with large portfolios. A little thought will lead to the conclusion that this business model could become unwieldy and prevent scaling up to the next level. What to do?
Seti Gershberg is the Founder and President of Investments, whereas Jay Tenenbaum is President of Capital and Risk Mitigation. Together, they cast about looking to buy some software to process the “back end” of Scottsdale REI LLC. Alas, everything they reviewed was either prohibitively expensive, or lacked sorely-needed functions. Time to invent!
REIBLADE Software Features
Multi-property partnerships need a way to evaluate the performance of their assets, individually and in groups. REIBLADE has the “Asset Dashboard” that provides this vital benefit, as described below.
How would you like to fully inform your investors without becoming extensively involved with their inquiries? REIBLADE provides an “Investor Portal” that gives investors instant access to their investments at any time with features that are easy to use. This is enhanced communication at its fullest!
Store and Manage Documents
REIBLADE will store all documents related to partnership properties in one place for easy, direct access by everyone involved. No stuffy files. No scrambling to locate a record, invoice, check, receipt, letter, deed, inspection report, walk-thru video, lease agreement, and so on. Click it, and get it!
Online Deal Marketplace
REIBLADE offers its “Deal Days Marketplace” where partnership properties can be marketed on the internet to investors around the world. Alternatively, assets can be marketed using an investor URL that is distributed to selected investor prospects. This flexibility eliminates the need for complicated and restrictive MLS-type marketing avenues, thus reducing costs.
Raising Capital for Growth
In order to grow and “scale up”, a real estate partnership enterprise needs a means to raise capital from investors. REIBLADE features the ability to produce and issue a Prospectus that has its own URL. Offering opportunities takes one click. Fundraising doesn’t come any easier than this!
Asset Performance Tracking
REIBLADE offers an instant, downloadable, one-page “Track Record”, with charts, graphs, and financial measures including Capitalization Rate, (“Cap Rate”), Yield, Internal Rate-of-Return (“IRR”), Return-on-Investment (“ROI”), and Equity Multiple. With its flexibility, REIBLADE can evaluate any single asset, or even a group of assets such as a single-family residence (SFR) portfolio. This feature can be used to convince investors to invest. After all, performance sells!
