Math Details, Generic Example

A.  What follows are details for a generic JV deal.

  1. It is based on a cosmetic-only rehab project undertaken by an experienced REI Pro. Time frames from beginning to end of the average for this type of no-permit project usually takes a few months. The REI Pro has an investment opportunity that he has penciled out as viable; it is ready to go.
  2. The numbers that follow:
         a. May have been rounded slightly up or down.
         b. May or may not reflect current costs in your area, due to regional variations in the costs for labor, supplies, loan rates, etc. The following are just “ballpark” estimates and are not intended to reflect current market conditions and may not include all fees, costs and expenses.
