The land will be acquired for $737,240 with additional development costs of $5,436,009, including city fees, engineering, utilities, street installation and landscaping, totaling $6,173,249. The total estimated cost of construction is $24,274,926, with an additional G&A expense of $3,172,416.

Distribution Waterfall

The projected distributions from net operating proceeds and capital events are structured as follows:

Tier 1:

8% preferred return. Investors to receive their 8% preferred return once cash is available from operations, estimated starting in the second quarter of the second year of the project. 

Tier 2:

Return of capital. 100% of profits pro-rata to Partners until all their capital is returned.

Tier 3:

Sponsor to receive a cumulative distribution of 50% of all amounts distributed of the preferred return as a Catch Up

Tier 4:

Remaining profits to be distributed on a 50/50 split.

In this project, we intend to use bank debt provided by Bridgewater Bank, a regional bank in Minnesota. The General Partner has historically done much of its lending with this bank. 

Development Loan:

We secure a development loan from the bank, which covers 65% of the total cost of the development budget.
The projected interest rate on this loan is 9%.
We repay this loan at closing of each home at 120% of the cost of the lot where the home was built.
This ensures that not only do we cover the loan amount, but we also have some profit margin built into the repayment.

Line of Credit:

In addition to the development loan, we have a revolving line of credit to cover the costs of construction, which allows us to borrow up to 65% of the construction cost. 
The interest rate on the line of credit is also 9%.
We also repay the line of credit upon closing at 100% of the cost to build that home. 
This covers the construction expenses and ensures that the line of credit is repaid in full.

Financial Strategy:

Our financial strategy is to use the development loan to acquire the land and cover initial development costs.
We repay this loan at a profit when we sell a lot.
The revolving line of credit provides flexibility to manage construction expenses.
We repay the line of credit in full when we close on a home. 

Benefits to the Investor:

Our debt structure is designed to provide a buffer for profitability.
Repayment terms ensure that we not only cover the debt but also generate profit.
The use of a line of credit offers flexibility and efficiency in managing construction costs.
By securing loans at reasonable interest rates, we maximize returns for our investors.

Overall, our debt structure is carefully planned to optimize financial efficiency and profitability in our project.

We will be charging a 4% Capital Management Fee on the total amount managed from LPs which is budgeted at $100,000. 

We will also charge an 8% developer fee which is budgeted to $457,278 for the project. 

The total in fees are $557,278.

Property Details

Regional Description
Location
Home Models

The Minneapolis-St. Paul single-family housing market has seen incredible growth in recent years, based on a number of compounding factors. 

Recent data from the Minneapolis Area Realtors Association shows the economy is improving, unemployment is falling, and the housing prices are on the rise. The median sales price of a home rose 2.2% in November 2023 compared to the same time in 2022, with 58,366 housing units for sale out of a metro area with nearly 3.7 million people.

According to Redfin, over the past five years home values in Minneapolis have increased by more than 20% and the average number of days a home is on the market is 23. 

These factors, combined with organic population growth in the region, is accelerating demand for high-quality single-family housing. We feel that these demographic trends are likely to drive opportunities for the Project and similar developments throughout the region.
