Michigan REIA Announces a Special Event “The Art of Structuring a Stabilized Value Transaction"

Engineering Detroit's comeback presented by keynote speaker Herb Strather


 Detroit, MI -- The great recession hit Detroit harder than perhaps any other major American city. When Detroit's major employers took a hit, the city lost the middle class population and the real estate market went into a free fall. Detroit's neighborhood real estate values is now sitting at 10-30% of it previous value. Now that the economy is getting better and jobs are returning; how do Detroit and other cities get property values back up?

This is a catch 22 question. It's like squatting to leap and getting cooked in the squat. Appraisers rely on comparable but banks are still dumping properties at 10-30 cents on the dollar and buyer and seller cannot close deals that they have agreed upon because of the value issues There are very few good comps that appraiser can rely on. The issue now is how do cities bounce back? How can buyers and sellers get good comps and property values stabilized again?

For starters, most comparables in the "D" and many other cities are less than $30,000 which is the minimum loan amount for FHA and most conventional sources, therefore a buyer could have trouble getting a mortgage because chances are they will not get a good appraisal to support the mortgage; furthermore banks do not want to make mortgages anyway because they have to put up cash reserves for each mortgage.

Smart sellers and buyers can get together and both share the upside. Herb Strather, successful real estate investor in the Metro Detroit Area will be offering a special presentation to show participants how to structure a stabilized value deal and put the equity in their pocket tax free!
