HomeUnion By the Numbers
You can tell a lot about a company by looking at past performance; that’s why we’ve gathered our key numbers to share with you.
Just another way, we’re fully transparent with our investors.
HomeUnion Past Performance
The Gross Rent Ratio is the average 12 month rent divided by the average purchase price of each asset.
The NOI represents the actual, stabilized return on real estate assets acquired and managed by HomeUnion for our investors. It assumes no borrowing.
YOY Appreciations are the one year growth rates for SFRs in these markets based on data from the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).
Estimated Total Return is the sum of annual Yield and one-year Appreciation, however the actual return would depend on the prices at the time of liquidation, net of any selling costs.
THE ABOVE PERFORMANCE RETURNS CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:
• We start with the acual income received from each included property (e.g., rent) starting from the fourth month after acquisiton.
• We subtract all associated operating expenses for the relevant period (excluding loan interest or principal payments); and
• We divide the remainder by the total all cash acquisition cost without considering financing, including without limitation, the purchase price, closing costs, and rehabilitation expenses. This gives us the Net Operating Income (NOI).
• All the income including rents, other income and the expenses are based on actuals except for the taxes and insurance expenses, which are based on accruals.
• Each property’s return during the stabilized period is annualized by weighting with the time period, and the aggregate of such returns is divided by the total all cash acquisition cost to arrive at the annualized NOI.
• The financed yield is calculated by taking the NOI as calculated above and assuming a 60% to 70% loan to cost, 4.25% to 4.50% interest rate, and interest only loan for simplicity of calculation.
But, please note these important limitations:
• The returns are only for properties in our “Stabilized Portfolio”, which means that we exclude all income (or losses) in the first three months following the acquisition of a real estate asset. Please note that in general the investments we make in properties during the first three months greatly exceed any income received in that period; see “Important Information” below for more detailed description: therefore:
• This only reflects the performance of properties that were owned for more than three months during the relevant period, except for one 81 unit property that was fully stabilized at the time of acquisition;
• This performance is based only on cash-flow and current income with no consideration of changes in the value of the underlying assets (therefore, it is possible that a property with a declining value can still reflect positive returns);
• These figures are not audited and have not been confirmed by any third party; and
• The geographic areas in which we operate are limited and our experiences in new markets may differ.
“HomeUnion took care of all the rehab and then quickly got it rented with a one-year lease. I’ve been very happy with my experience, and I would consider purchasing another property with them in the future.”
— Jonathan Kula
“With HomeUnion, the process is simple and streamlined. They take care of all the day-to-day minutiae and management of the property. I love that I am working with a partner I can trust and who makes life easy for me.”
— Daniel Brown
In order to calculate the yield of a Stabilized Portfolio, we subtracted all operating expenses excluding loan interest and principal during the relevant period from the total rents (and any other income) yielded by the properties. The remainder of that equation was then divided by the total cost to acquire the properties all cash without considering financing to calculate the Net Operating Income (NOI). Each property’s return during the stabilized period is then annualized by weighting the time period and the aggregate of such returns is divided by the total investments made to arrive at the annualized NOI. Then we applied an assumed Loan to Cost of 70% and loan interest rate of 4.5% to calculate the financed yield under this assumed scenario. We assumed an interest-only loan calculation for simplicity. Please note that this calculation does not factor in any costs or expenses associated with the sale of the property (none of these properties have been sold) or any appreciation or depreciation in the value of the underlying properties; property sales (if any) would incur transaction costs related to items such as assessments and valuation fees, legal services, brokerage fees and transaction costs due to HomeUnion (or a HomeUnion affiliate) under existing or future service agreements (including, but not limited to, HomeUnion’s provision of brokerage services).
The “total all cash acquisition cost” includes the initial purchase price of the property, closing costs associated with the purchase of that property and the costs associated with the rehabilitation of the property. The “total asset value” is calculated based on the aggregate acquisition cost. In calculating performance, we only include income that is actually received, but expenses – on an item by item basis – can be considered on a cash or on an accrual basis (e.g., taxes and insurance are based on the accrued amount of those expenses).
The performance contained herein is a limited sample based on short term performance and should not be relied upon when making any investment. The short-term performance of any property may vary materially from the aggregate performance of properties in a Stabilized Portfolio. In addition, this limited sample does not reflect the possibility of future tenant turnover, which may result in increased expenses and gaps in income received from properties.
Any performance information shown is hypothetical insofar as the performance information is prepared on an aggregated basis, and does not reflect the performance of any particular client’s investments. These are not actual results of any specific client. These performance figures are based upon various assumptions and may not factor in all of the properties in a hypothetical Client’s portfolio. Because a Stabilized Portfolio does not reflect performance during the first three months of ownership, the performance of a Client’s overall investments would differ materially and is likely to be worse than what is stated herein. HomeUnion and its affiliates are not making any representation that a performance record similar to the returns shown herein will or is likely to be achieved by any client.
