New White Paper Available: The Great Housing Workout

The Great Housing Workout White Paper

Arixa Capital has released a new white paper focused on the U.S. housing market and single family homes as an asset class for investors to consider. The white paper is based on Arixa's concrete experience investing in this area in recent years, working with local operators who buy properties in a specific geographic area, renovate them, and either lease the homes or resell them.

The white paper explains various ways that investors can gain exposure to this asset class, which Warren Buffett recently endorsed as underpriced and attractive. The author explains the advantages and disadvantages of various investment strategies for both active and passive investors.

The white paper also explains that the activity of thousands of local operators is already helping to work through the backlog of foreclosed homes. Attracted by appealing profits, local operators will help the housing market to heal over the next several years. Policies that aim to solve the problem on a mass scale are neither needed nor advisable.

Our first podcast of a series on "Trust Deed Investing" is here!

As part of our commitment to providing high quality education in the field of real estate investment, Arixa Capital is launching a series of podcasts on the subject of investing in trust deeds (real estate loans). The first podcast in the series is shown below to hear the podcast, just click on the image. This first podcast explains the main differences between investing in real estate loans vs. purchasing and operating real estate itself. In today's environment, Standard Capital is very active as a lender to opportunistic buyers of real estate, because investing in loans provides current income while maintaining an appealing margin of safety.

Please watch our blog as we will be posting one new podcast roughly every week. There will be approximately 30 podcasts in this series. If you are interested in learning more about what we do, or to learn about other educational opportunities brought to you by Standard Capital, please sign up for our newsletter at www.stndcap.com or give us a call at (310) 846-1754.

Thanks for your interest in Standard Capital,

MEZZANINE INVESTMENT

What we saw: A newly-built "Class A" apartment community was temporarily under performing due to the opening of other new apartments nearby. We provided a mezzanine loan, providing the developer with financing until the property stabilized and delivering an attractive return to our capital source.

What we saw: A 46-acre commercially-zoned parcel located within the City limits of the rapidly growing town of Shafter, California. The site is bordered by State Highway 46 and Santa Fe Way, a busy county road leading back to West Bakersfield. The property generates solid cash flow and will eventually be redeveloped into a shopping center.
