Here’s the big problem Pitts Enterprises Inc Can Solve! ” Unresolved foreclosure cases” Filling up in Cook County! Lower-income to Middle-Class Homeowners. There have the highest numbers of affected properties, study says!
January 22, 2014|By Mary Ellen Podmolik, Tribune report
As many as 8,000 residential properties in Cook County, including 4,000 in Chicago, have been in foreclosure for at least three years without resolution, new data show, a situation that could further deteriorate already middle-class communities.
Many of those properties that seem to get stuck — or abandoned — most are in a move in condition. The foreclosure process is affecting the middle-class income areas where annual household income is $79,000 or less, according to a study by Woodstock Institute.
Some of the at-risk houses, condos and apartment buildings are vacant and waiting for a new family to move in. The lenders have likely abandoned the foreclosure cases. Some continue to be inhabited while in foreclosure. Others are still in foreclosure while lenders consider short sales, and hoping for a Real Estate Entity, Hedge Fund or Cash buyer.
“You’re stuck in this situation where nobody really has a long-term interest in the property,” said Spencer Cowan, a vice president at the Chicago-based public policy and research group and one of the report’s authors. “The titleholder knows it may be taken at any time. The servicer doesn’t own it and may never own it. They may release the lien or just let it sit.” That’s where we come in. We are not talking the war zones. It’s the stable neighborhoods that are facing the new challenges.
Mortgage servicers filed foreclosure cases against about 228,400 houses, condos, and apartment buildings in Cook County between 2008 and 2012, according to Woodstock. Its research, though, looked only at the roughly 135,000 cases filed between 2008 and 2010 because of the long time it typically takes to process a foreclosure case through the county’s court system. The 2015 – 2016 results are in http://www.realtytrac.com/statsandtrends/il/cook-county/chicago/ You be the judge.

Educational achievement; Civic participation; Health benefits; lower Crime rate; Public assistance; and Property maintenance and improvement. Eye on Housing! Good Housing Leads To Good Health!
4). How big is the market opportunity Pitts Enterprises Inc?
During the boom, builders were very busy, putting up 2.1 million more houses from 2000 to 2006! The glut of houses is one element! Banks are still working through their inventory supply of foreclosures: Millions of people are doubling up with roommates, living at home with parents! Can’t afford a 200K to 500K new home! Private Lending is the next stage of profitability, cause banks are not lending money. This is the problem for the whole economy, and at its core is the mystery of the missing buyers. We can create the market for those new buyers.

7). Why does Pitts Enterprises Buy and Hold?
The Third Richest Man in the World Thinks it’s a good idea! Mr. Warren Buffett Just Made A Huge Bet On The U.S. Housing Market
“Warren Buffett Reveals His Secrets for Investing in Real Estate”
1. Invest in Undervalued Real Estate!
2. Think in Terms of Income, Plus Appreciation!
3. Focus on Underutilized Properties!
4. We Use Partnerships to Fill In Gaps in Our Expertise!
5. The Macro View Is More Important Than the Micro!
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Buffett’s philosophy on investing in individual companies is similar to the one he applies to investing in real estate. Find investments that produce income, have long-term value prospects not currently being recognized by the market, and, once you buy them, increase their operational and managerial inefficiencies to maximize recurring revenue.
These are ideas that you don’t need to be a billionaire to understand, nor to put them into practice in your own portfolio. Real Estate Links you can use!

10). How did you arrive at the sales of your industry and its growth rate?
Realtytrac: Zillow: Trulia: and other reliable sources! Therefore my answer is still 10 to 15 properties per year: With a slow market, that number is not that ridiculous.… If the market continues it’s averages of 4% to 8% over a tough 5 year period, then our companies portfolio of investment account should do at least … 10 to 15 properties per year! But I do think it’s realistic and useful for long-term planning projections…. But there will also be times in which 15 to 20 is possible with the right funding, even with this market! We will stay conscious of the target.

Business Blue Print
How can this traction be accelerated?
What has been the principal reasons for the early traction?
Three projects completed using no investor funds! Testimonials demonstrating a need or telling a customer’s story. A recent trend has been to adopt a formula letter that increases our response ratio. The idea of giving away information creates interest. In addition to building a better service model. We are showing growth in our team which is an important indication of traction. It’s often said that investors “bet on the jockey, not the horse,” and for us, that is their true philosophy.
There inevitably are risks in any business undertaking!
An obvious question is: What do you see are the principal risks to this business?
What do we mean about risk? Simply stated, the risk exists. In the past, we saw plummeting home values which are now corrected! Frozen credit! which is now relaxing in some states. On the flip side of risk I see opportunity! Which means if you want to succeed now is the time. There is risk management issues, Minor consequences which are safely ignored, which is not a factor. Risks that can be mitigated through simple changes in behavior. Insurance Risks with Insurance, Errors & Omissions Insurance if needed. Cost effectiveness risks, Nuisance Risks if needed.
What legal risks do you have?
1). Liability to third parties pursuant to a contract, such as a responsibility to make mortgage payments to the lender Pitts Enterprises Inc.
2). Liability to a purchaser when a problem occurs in transferring title, interest, or possession of the property sold.
3). Failing to properly maintain property until sold. Knowingly or unknowingly create a condition that causes injury to another’s person or property, which could be determined as negligence with liability for the resulting harms and injuries.
Do you have any regulatory risks?
Regulatory risk as we see it! The changes in laws and regulations could materially impact a Real Estate Security instrument. This business, sector or market. Is Residential Housing, which means the law is set. Commercial is different, and that’s the future. A change in laws or regulations made by the government or a regulatory body can increase the costs of operating a Real Estate business. And can reduce the attractiveness of a an investment and/or change the competitive landscape. Our model is based on simplicity ( SINGLE FAMILY HOMES )
Are there any service liability risks?
The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) of 2003 details the proper (and legally required!) which we follow! Procedure for disposing of data-containing records, which includes shredding, incineration, and/or the use of software that can wipe information from a hard drive and prevent its restoration.
All investors will want to get a sense of when and how they will be able to exit and receive a return on their investment, Here’s the answers!
What is Pitts Enterprises exit strategy?
A fireman once said that it’s not safe to enter a burning building without first knowing where all the exits are. That seems like common sense attitude to have.
The same thinking applies to Pitts Enterprises Inc real estate business. Before We buy any property, We have a buyer waiting to buy from us. It’s called working backwards. No stress, in selling the property. We First decide on the exit strategy. Before we buy the property. Having the funds and a buyer makes this business stress free, and very profitable. .
In other words, when you know what you will do with the property, it will help you determine the offer. You bring to the table the Funding source. We do all the Due-diligence, property, Buyer!
(1). (Buy & Hold): This is our best strategy! Instead of selling the renovated property, we at Pitts Enterprises chooses to create the 30-75k program there by giving the new family the ability to purchase the home. A option to buy, which means they have a contract for deed! They renovate the property themselves, they pay the taxes and Insurance, they pay all utility bills, and take on all respond ability of the residence. They pay the closing cost, and submit a down payment. We collect a Note until payment in full is satisfied. Benefit: Monthly cash flow. This is a popular real estate exit strategy for those looking to build up equity in an asset.
(2). (Seller Finance): As its name suggests, the seller finance strategy involves a creative technique that permits the owner to sell the property to a buyer. Essentially, the owner Pitts Enterprises Inc. finances the deal and acts as a bank. However, monthly payments are awarded to the owner. The seller maintains the mortgage loan to cover the sales price.
(3). (Pre-rehabbing): is a hybrid combination of both rehabbing and wholesaling. During a pre-rehab, minimal work is done to bring the property up to selling quality. They are often sold to rehabbers who will continue to fix it up.
(4). (Wholesaling): Simply put, a wholesale deal will witness the investor act as the middleman between a seller and an end buyer. Essentially, the investor will find and quickly sell a property for a respectable profit margin. There are two methods in which an investor can wholesale: They can either sell or “assign” their purchase contract to an end buyer, or they actually close on the property and immediately resell the property to another investor in the form of a “double close.”
(5). (Lease Option): A lease option, otherwise known as rent-to-own, allows the owner to rent the property to a tenant, but with the option to purchase it at a later date. Should the option be picked up, monthly payments are put towards the purchase of the home.
(6). (Sell The Note): Another exit strategy is selling the mortgage note. We have many direct note buyer of real estate notes. And they make selling a mortgage note easy. The company we use have there own funds to purchase notes. The down side selling that note at a discount 65% to 80% of the remaining note that is left on the mortgage with the original note buyer.
• We Sell Note’s to industry leading direct note buyers:
• They provide Fast closing, We receive a lump sum of cash at closing.
How will valuation be Done?
Intellectual Property: Let me define the word thereby creating the questions below.
What key intellectual property does the company have (patents, patents pending, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks, domain names)?
Three Proprietary: all Cash Buyers-Motivated Seller-Private Lenders in American:
Seven Domain Web-Pages:
What are the company’s three-year projections?
- Here are the realistic assumptions on Hand:
- Operating cash: It means the amount of money at the beginning of each month.
- Sources of cash — All money coming in each month (receivable collections or direct sales, loans, etc.).
- Total sources of cash — Add the amounts in the Operating cash: Sources of cash for each month.
- Uses of cash — List every likely expense your business may incur, such as payroll, accounts payable to vendors:
- Total uses of cash — Each month we tally all expenses so we can see exactly what will be going out the door each month.
- Excess (deficit) of cash — This is the number that counts. If you see positive numbers across the board — congratulations, We buy another investment for the 30-75k program.
How much equity and debt has the company raised; what is the capitalization structure?
Currently Pitts Enterprises Inc. Has NO DEBT: Meaning No Business Credit Card Debt: No Auto or Truck Loans: No Mortgages of any kind:
I’m sure you realize what capital structure is! It’s how a firm finances its overall operations and growth by using different sources of funds. Debt comes in the form of bond issues or long-term notes payable, while equity is classified as common stock, preferred stock or retained earnings.
When will the company get to profitability?
What are your unit economics?
A few Investors mentioned something called Real estate economics: Therefore I want to explain the value and mid-set of the application of Real Estate economic! It’s a techniques unique to the real estate markets. Our hope is to describe, explain, and predict patterns of prices, supply, and demand. The closely related field of housing economics is narrower in scope, concentrating on residential real estate markets: The 30-75-k program, while the research of real estate trends focuses on the business and structural changes affecting the industry. Both draw on partial equilibrium analysis In simple language (supply and demand), urban economics, extensive research, surveys, and finance.
What are the factors that limit faster growth?
The Capacity to Purchase Ten Homes per year!
