HOW TO LEAVE $200,000 + ON THE TABLE...

When Andrew Wilkey and Kenny Stevens of Kenny Stevens Team saw this non-rent controlled asset in a hot LA location listed by a broker for only $1,200,000, they knew it was greatly under-valued.   


Obviously, neither the owner nor the broker had any concept of what the potential rents or potential value were for this asset! I’m sure they looked at comps. But comps only tell a part of the story.   


We moved quickly and aggressively to acquire the property on behalf of our client, agreeing to a 20 day close and quick due diligence period in order to secure the deal for $1,100,000!


WE FLIPPED IT 30 DAYS LATER FOR $1,312,000.


Seller’s loss is our client’s gain. Next time, the gain can be YOURS.  (Unless you choose the wrong broker. Don’t make this same mistake.)

TRADE A 3.5% CAP FOR AN 8% CAP!

31 UNITS IN HANCOCK PARK SOLD FOR 98.5% OF LIST PRICE!


Kenny Stevens has brokered the sale of a 31 unit multifamily property located in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. 


The Sellers had found a property in Texas that they wanted to purchase. They saw this as the perfect opportunity to trade the 31 unit asset, which was difficult for them to manage. Needing to sell the property fast and for top dollar, they enlisted Kenny and his team to get the deal done.


After 10 days of listing the property and several showings, the property was in Escrow with short contingencies and no financing contingencies. Escrow closed 60 days later in time for the Seller to close on their Exchange Property, the Texas retail acquisition at an 8% + Cap Rate! The Sellers have more than doubled their cash flow, and couldn't be happier with the trade!


This transaction worked great with the Buyer’s investment strategy as well. With the A+ location and 37% upside in rents, they are thrilled with the purchase of this asset. They are planning on adding value by renovating units as they turn over, as well as common area renovations. This good sized asset in a core location is a great addition to their portfolio.



IS IT CRAZY TO THINK THAT THE RIGHT BROKER CAN FIND YOU A GREAT DEAL?

Kenny Stevens and Max Berger negotiated the acquisition of  an 18 unit multifamily property located in the Silver Lake neighborhood  of Los Angeles.


Immediately  after the property hit the market, Kenny and Max realized the listing  price was very low, and would receive a lot of offers. Knowing they had  to move fast, they presented the investment opportunity to a long-time  client who had been looking for a great deal. 


Kenny  and Max's ability to act strategically and forge a relationship with  the listing agent allowed them to beat out 20 other offers and get the  property under contract for their client. Within 30 days, the escrow  closed. 


With  the A+ location and 51% upside in rents, the buyer couldn't be happier  with the purchase of this asset. He is planning on adding value by  renovating units as they turn over and increasing rents to market  levels.
