My loan #16 was paid off last week, so my partner was on the lookout for a new loan to make. He found one almost immediately. This new property was bought at auction by one of our regular borrowers. He was the only bidder. He got the place for about $63,000. My partner estimates current value to be about $95,000 and after repaired value to be $120,000. Our loan is for $42,000, giving us a LTV of 44% based on current value and 35% at repaired value. The borrower, again, one of our best borrowers, is personally guaranteeing the loan. My partner was willing to fund this one with all of his own money, but since I had some on hold, he gave it to me. His mother also has a small share of the loan.
The property was a rental and has an unfriendly tenant that might need to be evicted. The area isn't the best, but it's not the worst either. It is near a freeway however, so that's a drawback. The house is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath built in 1912. The interior condition appears to be average with some updating needed. The exterior paint is peeling and the siding may need some work. Again, the location isn't the best, but the exceptionally low LTV makes this a loan I am comfortable doing.
I'm referring to this one as Hard Money Loan #19.
I also got some good news from the Houston apartment complex. July occupancy averaged 93% and turnover declined to just 23 units. These two factors increased monthly revenue by about $13,000 and gave the property its highest monthly revenue figure of the year. Rent concessions also declined.
While that was good news, the bad news was the property was still in a negative cash flow situation for the month. This was due to a couple of factors. As mentioned previously, our mortgage has now switched from interest only payments to interest and principal, meaning our mortgage increased by about $8,000 a month. The hot summer months have also caused the utility payments to be higher than normal. As we enter into the fall and winter months and utility bills decline, the higher revenue should easily offset the higher mortgage payment. On a year to date basis, we are still actually about $115,000 over budget.

This was a busssyyy weekend!
We celebrated my dad's birthday and it was so fun :) We had a little get together at our house and cooked, ate, opened presents, played football in the backyard, ate an amazing cake, etc! Ha!
I decided to go with a mini theme for this party... a KY Wildcat Football theme! How awesome is that? I'm pretty sure my dad loved it ;) And it was fun stuff I already had most of from previous football tailgates and parties!
Just some fun decorations!
I love these containers! You can use them for decorations, seasonal stuff (I'm thinking pumpkins for Fall, Christmas decorations, etc!) Or even food in them would be cute too! The front has the chalk board paint on it so you can write whatever you want! They came from one of my fave stores, House by JSD Designs on Deleware Ave here in Lex!
Ok ... I won't make you wait... I know you're all dying to see the cake!!! And it was a favorite that is for sure! Loved it, so cute... Confused Confections Bakehouse did an AWESOME job as always :) They are my very fave! If you haven't tried them yet you really need to! You will be so happy you did!!

Does anybody have one of these or know if they are good??
Then we came home, fixed dinner and he watched TV while I cleaned out my closet! hahaha :( Pathetic I know, but it needed to happen. I hate when things are messy and somehow in the last couple of weeks my closet had spiraled out of control. I bagged up 5 bags of clothes to go to Goodwill and some to give to other people I know. It literally took me 2 hours! But this morning I woke up and looked in there and felt like I could breath ha :)
This is the left side... the right side is still a tad work in progress haha
I still don't know what to do with all my scarves hanging up there, they look messy still but idk ?
My weekly magazines this week that came out contained my most favorite issue ALL year long...
In Style's FALL Issue! Let me tell you it is a whopping 638 pages!!
Can't wait to read it and get excited for Fall clothes!
PS. Our Ann Taylor in the mall got a major facelift and so did their clothes designer's brain, because they literally have the cutest clothes ever right now, I want everything in there! Major cute shoes, bags, jewelry and everything! It's not "mom" clothes anymore .. but major cuteness you can work in or wear out!
This is my absolute favorite song right now... Love it! If you don't have it, hop on over to iTunes right now and get it! I have a slight obsession with Miranda Lambert so I pretty much love anything that is her anyway... but these ladies together are really good! (Pause my playlist at the bottom before you listen!)
Yayy for Pistol Annies!
Lastly, today is my dad's birthday!!! :)
Happy Birthday Dan! <3 ya!
We are having a mini cookout at my house this afternoon to celebrate so I'm sure I will have pics to post!
Have a great weekend!!!
