Buying a property is much more than covering the purchase price. We also need to consider the property’s tax burden, notary and broker fees, possible renovations, and setting aside cash reserves for the unexpected.
The total investment in a property constitutes of:
• Property price: The price we agreed with the seller to buy the property for
• Renovations: The cost of any renovations we estimate will be needed to make to property ready for rental. In some cases, this can be zero if the property is already in very good condition.
• Closing Costs: All costs incurred in purchasing a property such as real estate transfer tax and notary fees.
• Brxs Fees: A one-time fee for Brxs for all efforts related to sourcing, acquiring & preparing the property.
• Cash reserves: Cash reserves function as a buffer for any unexpected events like emergency repairs or vacancy. When a property is sold the remaining cash reserves are also distributed across all investors.
• Mortgage: A loan received from the bank to purchase the property. The mortgage amount can vary from property to property and is usually between 50% to 70% on the value of the property. All mortgages are interest-only mortgages so there is no repayment of principal.
• Brxs notes: Money raised from investors from selling the brxs notes
• Brxs' own financing: In cases, where a property would not yet have received a mortgage or have been fully subscribed by investors, Brxs also uses its own capital or its own credit line to finance part of the property at the closing date.
You can find a detailed overview of the total investment amount and financing on each specific property page and the property documents.
