Cash Flow Diary Podcast: Eddie Lorin on Having a Vision in Real Estate

Eddie Lorin sits down with full-time real estate investor, entrepreneur, author, speaker, coach, all-around problem solver, and Cash Flow Diary podcast host, J. Massey, well known for providing best-in-class advice and strategies to help new and experienced investors the world over. In episode #478, Eddie shares his experience, his empathic observation of the working poor, opinion on the inflated housing market and his vision of wanting to make a difference in the world. Eddie’s mission is to provide clean, safe, and affordable housing for working class and to include all types of investors on his journey. He does this through Impact Housing REIT.

Having a vision in the real estate industry wasn’t the easiest road to take when he started in real estate. While trying to make a name for himself in the industry, there were so many bumps on the road he had to pass through. He learned that he had to be firm and also respectful to get his message across.

If one thing was made clear during those times, it was the fact that real estate is where he needed to be. At first, he tried dealing with commercial and industrial properties. But then he discovered that in multifamily business he can make a lot of money and at the same time help the masses. And thus, the birth of Impact Housing. Eddie says that his ultimate gift is having a vision in renovation. Just one look at an old property, he already knows how to turn it into something different. He says that he finds those properties through his connections or a brokerage community.

For the future entrepreneur who’s about to enter real estate, Eddie Lorin advises that you look for appreciative capital. Go for people who are going to appreciate you and what you do. Make sure they are on the same page as you do. Also, investing has more impact if people who are really in need will be the ones who’ll benefit.

If you’re still on the fence, Eddie says to let go and remember that fear is not rational. Whatever you’re compelled to do, if it’s sound and you’ve done your research, get ready to bounce and let go. If you don’t let go, it will keep you from being who you want to be.

How You Can Help Fix America’s Affordable Housing Crisis – Originally Published in Forbes

 

housing crisisEvery day across America, individuals and families are looking for clean, safe houses and apartments that are affordable, a term the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development defines as “housing for which the occupant(s) is/are paying no more than 30 percent of his or her income for gross housing costs, including utilities.” Homes that are affordable are a necessary and tangible asset for any adult or family to survive and thrive, but there simply aren’t enough of them to go around.

Federal Reserve findings indicate a growing percentage of renters are either cost-burdened or extremely cost-burdened by rising rents and stagnating incomes. The Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) of Harvard University published a 2017 study that found more than one-third of U.S. households were rental units. The research further suggests that overall household growth will be strong over the next decade as larger numbers of the extremely large millennial generation move out on their own — therefore pushing the number of households in our country, higher.

So what can we do? Eddie Lorin, Member of the Forbes Real Estate Council, presents to ForbesCommunityVoice readers a few ways we can help fix the housing affordability crisis (and potentially earn financial returns along the way).

Cash Flow Connections with Hunter Thompson: How Eddie Lorin Raised His Capital for Affordable Housing Through Reg A+

Since the jobs act of 2012, there have been many changes to securities laws. One of these changes has resulted in companies being able to raise capital through non accredited investors without going through the entire IPO process. The rule is called Reg A+ and although it is relatively new to the real estate sector many companies are utilizing the Reg A process to raise capital.

In this episode we discuss…

-What the whole Reg A+ process has been like
-The costs associated with the Reg A+ process
-The time associated with the Reg A+ process
-The key takeaways that our guest has learned by going through the Reg A+ process
-What our guest anticipates for the future
-The multifamily sector as a whole

Staying up to date on the new rules and regulations can help bring in capital from new places that may not have been possible before. Learning about these rules in depth will create a better understanding of how to utilize them and become successful in obtaining capital from new sources.

Impact at USC’s Price School of Social Innovation Annual Summit

USC’s Price School of Social Innovation’s Annual Summit Sponsored by Eddie and Jane Lorin https://www.uscsocialinnovationsummit.com

Eddie and Jane Lorin sponsored USC’s Price School of Social Innovation’s Annual Summit held Friday, April 27, 2018. Over 150 people in attendance included city agencies and key stakeholders in Los Angeles  covering non-profits providing services, Foundations, Donors, Developers and Educators. The agenda included panels titled “Housing the Workforce,” “Innovations to Increase the Affordable Housing Stock” and “Innovations to House the Homeless.”

The attendees broke into 15 groups in a workshop format to brainstorm solutions given 3 case studies. The format of the summit promoted great collaboration and a positive experience was enjoyed by all.

At the all day event, Lorin announced the first “NOAH” project (Naturally Occurring Affordable Housing) in conjunction with the City of Los Angeles which will take an existing 1920s apartment building in the East Hollywood district of Los Angeles and deem 50% of the property affordable in exchange for a property tax abatement.

These affordable units are anticipated to be reserved for supportive housing for the homeless with services and social work provided by the 20 year old non profit People Concern http://www.thepeopleconcern.org,  Health and Wellness programming on site at the property will be provided by the non-profit HAPI (Healthy Apartment Property Initiative founded in 2013 by the Lorins) which focuses on food insecurity and education https://www.hapiapts.org.

NOAH is an innovative concept Lorin proposed to the Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) in 2016 in order to pilot a Public/Private Impact Investment to provide another unique solution to the housing crisis.

By purchasing existing assets and deeming them affordable, the NIMBY (not in my backyard) deterrent to new development is eliminated along with the purchase of existing older properties costs as low as 40% of the replacement cost to build new. Lorin says he is pleased to be the first to launch this concept because “it just makes common sense.” Housing can be relatively immediate versus the 3 years it takes to build new.

 

Jane and Eddie Lorin are relentless in their pursuit to create new innovations to solve the housing crisis like NOAH. They have also sponsored the “Jane and Eddie Lorin Fellowship for innovative low income housing solutions” at USC’s Price School. The Fellowship will promote a competition for the most creative and inventive ideas for affordable housing.
