National Curb Appeal Month: 3 Top Garage Door Styles with Powerful…

Published

on

National Curb Appeal Month in August is the perfect time to contact a professional garage door installer to help reevaluate both the look and durability of your existing garage door.

At a strong 94.5 percent recoup value, a garage door replacement can add not only to your home’s curb appeal, but also to its value. To put it plainly, for every $1000 you invest in a garage door, $945 of that is added to the value of your home.

National Curb Appeal Month in August is the ideal time to re-evaluate your home’s garage door. For properties where the garage door faces the street, it’s even more important to make sure that the garage door enhances the overall exterior look of your house.

Often the most used door in the home each day, the garage door demands special attention. And, according to the 2020 Cost Versus Value Study, adding a new garage door has a higher return on investment than siding, window, entry door or roof replacements.

At a strong 94.5 percent recoup value, a garage door replacement can add not only to your home’s curb appeal, but also to its value. To put it plainly, for every $1000 you invest in a garage door, $945 of that is added to the value of your home.

Three Stylish Stand-outs

Popular nationwide, carriage house style garage doors draw strong attention to a home. The American Tradition™ Series from Haas Door replicates handcrafted wooden carriage house styles into durable steel garage doors. Accented with wrought iron hardware, overlay boards and specialty glass windows, these appealing garage doors come in a variety of woodgrain and solid color options. Overlay boards can match the color of the door or accent it in a different color.

It’s all about the glass with Residential Aluminum 360 (RA36) garage doors. Wide open glass panes maximize the flow of light, bringing a modern, contemporary look to a home exterior. Made with rust- and corrosion-free commercial grade aluminum, each hand-crafted garage door comes in 26 standard options of powder-coated woodgrain, anodized colors or standard painted colors. Custom colors are also available. Insulated and non-insulated glass options allow you to select anything from total privacy to complete flow of sunlight into the garage.

For homeowners in rough weather areas of the country, the Insulated Aluminum 5000 Series provides both style and security. Constructed of long-lasting and corrosion-resistant aluminum, the 5000 Series doors feature a durable, weather-resistant Trinar® paint finish. More than 40 insulated and non-insulated window options allow you to select the window style best suited for your home exterior. Whether it’s Decorative Glass (with Modern Craft, Emerald and Prairieview styles) or SelectView, where you build your own window pattern, Haas Door allows you to design the style of garage door that complements your home exterior.

Haas Door Helps

To see what a new garage door can look like on your home, the free HaasCreate online design tool is available to let you “try on” a new Haas Door garage door. Simply upload a picture of your home exterior showing your current garage. You can even use some images supplied by Haas Door.

With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can quickly see different styles, window glass, colors, hardware and trim details of a new garage door on your home. There’s also a way to select the one you like best and then share it with friends and a garage door dealer near you.

When you’re ready to tackle this home improvement project, don’t go it alone. A professional door installer is the best bet for getting this job done right. Find a Haas dealer near you at haasdoor.com/locations

CapitalStackers, a P2P Lender focused on Real Estate Finance, Invests Outside its Normal Corridor of Expertise, Works with New Senior Lender

Avatar

Published

on

Steve Robson, MD at CapitalStackers, a UK-based peer to peer (P2P) lending platform focused on real estate finance, notes that they’re working with a new borrower, a new location, and also a new bank.

The company states in a blog post:

“A highly attractive scheme in Surrey has tempted CapitalStackers to invest outside their normal corridor of expertise in the North – and also to partner with a new senior lender.”

The CapitalStackers team further notes that there’s a luxury apartment project intended for wealthy “downsizers,” a prestigious or high-profile street and an affluent village combined with a “high-quality” borrower that “convinced” the CapitalStackers team of the scheme’s worth. The investors also agreed as the £950,000 needed to finance part of the land purchase was secured in only 4 days, the company claims.

While sharing other terms of the deal, the CapitalStackers team pointed out that “with the borrower tabling equity of £810,000 and a personal guarantee for the whole CapitalStackers loan, Shawbrook Bank entered its first ever partnership with CapitalStackers – putting up the senior debt of £8,014,000 which will fund the remainder of the land value and 100% of the construction costs. This, as regular investors will know, fulfils CapitalStackers’ prerequisite, namely that the entire scheme should be fully funded to completion before any of its investors part with any cash.”

They added:

“So with a total debt of £8,964,000, the completed scheme (post Covid-19) is valued by Strutt & Parker at £12.33 million – an overall £529 per sq ft with a gross rental value of £508,800 per annum for the 14 spacious two-bedroom apartments with 28 covered car spaces.”

(Note: for more details on this particular deal, check here.)

The CapitalStackers team confirmed that, as usual, they have performed extensive risk modelling on the site which includes the main parties and factors involved in the deal including the borrower, COVID-19 crisis, possible or potential threats to sales and any cost overruns.

CapitalStackers’ management stated that on “sensitivity assumptions,” 8 properties would “sell within 10 months of practical completion reducing the LTV ratio to 50.8% and rental values would provide gross interest cover of 1.08% assuming an interest rate of 4.5%.” They added that “this downside scenario demonstrates the opportunity to refinance the remaining 6 units in the event of sluggish sales. The Base Case indicates the project will be fully sold out within 7 months of completion.”

As covered in June 2020, CapitalStackers had reportedly repaid £1.4 million (appr. $1.7 million) to investors, despite the socio-economic challenges created due to the global COVID-19 outbreak.

CapitalStackers had confirmed that it’s planning to introduce an Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA), which allows investors to make P2P lending investments within a tax-free “wrapper.”

The P2P property lending platform had noted that the recent payments made to clients had come after two projects were finalized, with returns between 8.25% to 17% paid to investors.

Steve Robson, MD at CapitalStackers had said it’s “a clear barometer of the health of the sector to see that sales are going through.” He had also mentioned that P2P lending investors were consistently being repaid and their “appetite for new investments remains strong.”

He had also said that the results indicate that even during challenging time (due to the Coronavirus crisis), investors are still eager to invest in a platform that “gives them confidence and regular feedback.”

Robson had revealed in June 2020 that CapitalStackers was adding more features and updating its platform. It had been planning to integrate payment services via Goji, an alternative lending tech provider, and will be introducing an IFISA.

The Crossings at Red Mill Apartments in Virginia Beach, VA with an ORA Score of 93 – Property Managed by Drucker + Falk

DF knows how important the happiness is of each and every one of our residents nationwide. This understanding is deeply ingrained in our people, our processes, and our culture.

Multifamily Executive in partnership with the leading apartment industry research firm, J Turner Research, recently featured their second installment of the Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) Online Reputation Assessment (ORA) Power Ranking. In this most recent list, they ranked the 26 to 50 most populous MSAs by their average ORA score and highlighted the top 10 properties in each by online reputation. Drucker + Falk (DF), a best-in-class multifamily management organization and full-service real estate and investment firm, is beyond proud to be recognized one the list four times for communities in the Hampton Roads and Richmond areas of Virginia.

The ORA score is assigned based on an aggregate compilation of an apartment community’s ratings across various review sites and internet listing services (ILSs). The online ratings of more than 100,000 properties are monitored and analyzed nationwide on a monthly basis, and the communities are assigned a score of 0-100. This score aids in comparing properties and portfolios against one another and serves as a reference point for local, regional, and national competition. Among the 250 properties listed in this most recent ranking, 151 (or 61%) scored an ORA of 90 or above, three of which are currently managed by Drucker + Falk.

Tarra Secrest, Director of Marketing for Drucker + Falk shared, “DF knows how important the happiness is of each and every one of our residents nationwide. This understanding is deeply ingrained in our people, our processes, and our culture. The company, along with the immediate efforts of our on-site teams strives to have the highest online reputation scores for every one of our communities and is dedication to resident satisfaction across the board”
