CHRISTMAS PARTY. WE’RE PROVIDING A SUMPTUOUS DELICIOUS MEAL FOR THEIR LITTLE TUMMIES.>WOMAN: YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE FILMING THIS. ♪>BEN: SO A FEW DAYS AGO WE CLOSED THE DEAL ON THIS 17 STORY 208 UNIT SENIOR APARTMENT COMPLEX. WE’RE GONNA COME IN HERE, WE’RE GONNA FIX THE PLACE UP. THIS PLACE IS IN MY OPINION A SLEEPING GIANT. IT’S A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH AND THERE’S A LOT OF POTENTIAL FOR THIS PROPERTY.

I BOUGHT THE PLACE FOR EIGHT MILLION BUCKS AND YOU KNOW, PROBABLY THROW A MILLION INTO IT AND HOPEFULLY IT’LL BE WORTH ABOUT 12 OR 13. THE DEAL WAS, THERE WERE PEOPLE THAT WANTED TO PAY UP TO $2 MILLION MORE THAN ME. BUT WHEN THEY SAW THOSE PEOPLE WERE GOING TO PROBABLY JERK THEM AROUND AND NOT REALLY CARE ABOUT THE TENANTS THEY TOOK MY OFFER FOR $2 MILLION LESS BECAUSE THEY KNOW I’M FOR REAL. I’VE DONE STUFF ALL
OVER THIS TOWN. THEY KNOW WHO I AM. AND I’M GONNA TURN THIS PLACE AROUND AND MAKE IT A REALLY NICE MONEYMAKING PLACE AND STILL KEEP IT NICE FOR THE SENIORS. WE’RE GONNA PROBABLY HAVE TO TAKE THE NEXT YEAR TO FIX THIS PLACE UP AND GET IT TO WHERE IT SHOULD BE. AND THEN THERE SHOULD BE SEVERAL MILLION DOLLARS IN PROFIT FROM OUR HARD WORK OVER A WHOLE YEAR
OF FIXING IT UP, RAISING THE RENTS, MAKING IMPROVEMENTS, CUTTING EXPENSES THAT AREN’T NEEDED. IT’S PROBABLY BRINGING IN ABOUT 130 A MONTH RIGHT NOW. A HUNDRED GRAND WILL GO TO PAYING FOR EVERYTHING – THE BANK, THE TAXES, THE INSURANCE, THE MORTGAGE, THE PAYROLL, THE MAINTENANCE. AND THEN THERE SHOULD BE ABOUT 30 GRAND A MONTH LEFT AS A RETURN ON OUR INVESTMENT. BECAUSE WE DID PUT $1 MILLION DOWN. YOU KNOW, WE GOT A LOAN FROM THE BANK FOR ABOUT SIX MILLION EIGHT. AND WE’VE GOT ABOUT A MILLION TWO OF OUR OWN MONEY INTO IT. AND THEN WE’LL PROBABLY THROW ANOTHER HALF A MILLION AT LEAST IN IMPROVEMENTS.

I'm a die-hard fan. Never stop. The 17-story building for seniors in Clearwater you put down 15% cash. Could you share what are qualifications were needed in order to get the loan for the 6.8 million? Was the bank concerned with your tax returns? Did the bank look at your personal income or the income of your company? Or do they just focus on the numbers on the building and your credit rating? let me rephrase. Specifically what did it take to qualify for the 6.8 million dollar loan. What was it Bank looking for? Finally where do you search in order to have Banks bid on your projects? Is it online or broker? Please be specific … Thank you so much for the service of explaining everything. You're the only one online that shares the details as you do. Thank you for helping the small guy.

I like and respect what you do. Having said that, burning $100 just because you can is disgusting. It shows no respect for the value of money. Money is like a woman, it favours those that contain it, and money is water. It can be contained or it can dry up, you have to maintain it and keep it flowing. Please dont ever burn money again, its not a good example, its just decadent, you could have given that to a starving family in the world. I am a real JEW in business, and a CHRISTIAN in life…..V

Nice terms on the equity position in the USA it seems as the LVR would never have passed Credit at any Bank in Australia ?. From what little info is provided it sounds like the transaction is ring fenced from Ben's wider portfolio in a SPV holding company, so from a Bank's perspective it still sounds like a risky lend unless he has the cash for the building upgrades sitting in an account ready to go. With that said it is interesting to see how the markets differ to those here in Australia, given I thought due to BASEL 3 the lending criteria for commercial property would be pretty similar worldwide, as Ben's equity sounds more like a residential lend than a commercial one.

So, from what he said i derive the following equation:
Buying pice : 8m (Own money; 1.2m + Bank Loan 6.8m) Interest 2% p.A. -> 0.136m/year -> 0.272m in 2years
Selling Price after 2years: 12.5m
Rental Income after Fee´s (net): 0.03m/month -> 0.36m p.A. -> 0.72m in 2years
Total Income in 2 years: 0.72m Rent – 0.272m Interest = 0.448m
Investment for Fixup: 0.5m + 0.3m = 0.8m total

Selling the Property after 2years means:
12.5m + 0.448m – 0.8m – 6.8m – 1.2m = 4.148m NET Profit without increasing the rent or optimizing the operational costs.

So many people complaining about Ben raising rents and it being a burden on Medicaid, i.e. the taxpayers. The people worried about the "burden" on taxpayers aren't using the tax laws to their maximum benefit. Neither am I (yet) but I can admit I still need to acquire more education on tax law before complaining about taxpayer burden to win political arguments. The tax laws are designed to reward people like Mr. Mallah who do things the government wishes all of us would do and to penalize people who don't. Of course, the government doesn't help itself or the masses by failing to educate society.

Why do you think so many politicians break their promises to lower taxes? Because they don't know what they're talking about until they get into office and experts inform them that's not how shit works. Let's break it down: Rich people pay low taxes because they have very low personal income. The key word is "personal". This simple fact somehow eludes 90% of people. The mansions, fancy cars, yachts, expensive meals, vacations/travel…you name it, they are all corporate expenses. Why does this matter? Because corporations are taxed on operating profit, or EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes), which is profit AFTER business expenses. Individuals, on the other hand, are taxed before they even see their paycheque. Warren Buffett openly admits he doesn't pay income tax because he doesn't have any personal income.

It obviously varies by geographic region, but in Ontario, Canada, it costs $360 CAD to start a corporation and it's just a few pages of paperwork. So start a corporation, acquire income-producing assets, and that $360 will save you an entire lifetime of personal income tax.
