“It’s all about the numbers, it’s just like looking at an underlying asset.”
“I don’t really care as long as the numbers match what I’m looking for, and I’m looking for higher risk, higher returns…around 50% and 80% IRR is what I usually look for in a deal.”
“I do think that there’s going to be a lot of deals in the market, you want to find operators that know how to identify those deals.”
“The numbers need to be more conservative, I think, as opposed to what they were in the past few years.”
“So low and the asset value makes sense, I think now moving forward, that’ll be more sort of lower, so you’ll have less loan to value. I think it just makes it a safer deal.”
“I always track IRR. I think that’s the most important metric that exists. Most people don’t really understand that metric.”
“The IRR is the only metric that you compare apples to apples. If I put $100,000 in the stock market, but $100,000 into a real estate investment, the only way to compare those two is using IRR.”
“What contributed to my success is finding good people to invest with and stay on top of my investments.”
“I think being on top of everything, and finding good people contributed to my success.”
