DEVELOPMENt

DEVELOPMENT

Long-Term Project Management

Whether you’re planning a new residential development or undertaking the rehabilitation of an existing property, we can provide valuable project management assistance during the pre-construction and construction phases of your project. Before one shovel of dirt is turned, we prepare timelines and establish target dates for reaching significant project milestones. We assist with the selection of a highly qualified design team and then coordinate and direct the activities of the architect and other technical consultants to keep the project focused during the design phase.

By considering these issues early in the design process, we help our clients avoid costly mistakes and be confident that the final project can be efficiently operated and maintained. In addition, we guide projects through planning and zoning review and the often complex process of public agency approvals. We review final construction and bid documents, pre-qualify contractors and assist in evaluation and selection of the right contractor.

Construction Services

We provide project and construction management services for our own properties and for a wide variety of outside clients and organizations. We draw on our broad range of expertise – including property managers, developers, architects and contractors – to enable us to provide comprehensive construction or rehabilitation services that carry throughout the budget, design and construction processes.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS REQUIRE EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS WHO UNDERSTAND THE INDUSTRY.

OUR TEAM OF EXPERTS IS JUST THAT.

 

We provide a team that will:

  • Assist with budget development and staffing plans

  • Review governing documents

  • Provide design input for optimal HOA operations

  • Give consulting on operation efficiencies to cut costs

  • Educate board members

  • Mitigate owners concerns

Document Review Services

The marriage of legal documents with an inviting and positive experience in the community can be a difficult arrangement. But this is where Action helps new developments. Our team of experienced professionals not only provides review and consultation on an association’s governing documents, but we are intentional about making those documents user friendly for the residents.

Advance Planning

What if you could reduce operating costs, make resident experiences more efficient, and improve the quality of the living experience in a new community? At Action, our advance planning team can help you do just that. With experience in streamlining both management and operations, we can help you make decisions that will turn a community into the perfect home.

DRE Budgets

Whether providing consultation on budget drafts developed by other consultants or developing and managing the budget process from start to finish, our team of DRE Budget experts provide a value that goes well beyond the DRE formulas and processes for budgeting. We introduce real life data and experience into the process to help each development arrive at a budget that is reasonable, practical, and able to deliver vision for the community.

Owner-Developer Relationship

The biggest threat to any new development is the potential for defect claims and litigation. Through a unique approach of segregating developer relationship and homeowner relationship responsibilities within the company, we have been able to more effectively facilitate communication when any perceived problems arrive and more often find resolutions that benefit everyone.

Board Education

The key to a new community is an effective board of directors. Action’s Board Leadership program provides a resource to assist new board members in understanding their roles and responsibilities, as well as equipping them with the knowledge needed to be effective in their roles.

HOTELS AND CONDOS TOGETHER. FEW COMPANIES KNOW MUCH ABOUT HOW THIS WORKS.

WE DO. WE HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE.

 

The marriage of luxury hotel life with condominium living is a unique blend that requires a robust understanding of what both a hotel and a condo contribute to make a one-of-a-kind living experience. Like no one else on the West Coast, Action Property Management has developed this unique expertise through unparalleled experience, which allows us to deliver the quality of life you hope for when living in a hotel environment.

Our success is built on enduring partnerships with our developers and investors.

WNC was established at the intersection of opportunity and impact. Following the passage of the Urban Development Act in 1968, Wilfred Cooper Sr. saw how this could provide investors and developers the incentives to generate not only stakeholder value, but social value as well in the form of community preservation and improved access to affordable housing.

Today, WNC is known as both the pioneer in the affordable housing space and a leader in tax credit syndication, community preservation services, and private equity fund management.

Mission-driven, versatile, and comprised of some of the most talented professionals in real estate, WNC utilizes the full force of its collaborative culture to create a powerful vertically-integrated organization. Together, the WNC entities have turned affordable housing investing and preservation services into a science, while ensuring hard-working individuals and families can live the American Dream.

Find the Right Agent

Buying a home is probably one of the most significant investments you'll ever make, and it's important that you hire a knowledgeable Realtor to guide you through the process. Friends and family can be good sources to refer their trusted real estate advisor. It's a good idea to interview at least three agents; you will be spending a fair amount of time with your Realtor, so it's important that you pick an agent with whom you feel comfortable and who you trust. Extensive knowledge about local market conditions and about the local community are important. But it's also important to be represented by an agent who will educate you about the process if this is your first home, and to be available to show you homes and provide advice.

The HomeServices of America enterprise is comprised of an ever-expanding family of market-leading real estate brokerages, mortgage companies, settlement service providers, insurance companies, corporate relocation and affiliated businesses and we are the owners of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and Real Living Real Estate franchise networks.

Although we have a national presence as the country's largest residential brokerage firm, our model is decidedly local.

At HomeServices, we are our companies and our mission is to be a superior provider of home ownership services in every market that we serve.

What we do

Real estate is important. It represents the boundaries of our most personal aspirations and for many, represents the largest transaction in their lives. But the experience of buying and selling a home can be difficult. Confusing. And laden with complexity. When we began in 1998, our goal was to change that. We developed a strategy that integrates all the pieces of the real estate transaction puzzle including mortgage, title, escrow, insurance and relocation into a suite of home services that work together. Today, while our companies each operate autonomously, they share the unifying priority of delivering an exceptional experience to customers throughout the home buying transaction process.

As the parent organization, we support our companies with technological innovation, operational excellence together with operational, legal and financial expertise to stay relevant throughout the home buying and home selling process.

Our reputation for honesty, integrity and operational excellence is proven in every transaction we make and our commitment to maintaining this standard is unwavering.

Images shown are for illustration only and are not indicative of any fund asset.

Interval funds are generally suitable only for investors who can bear the risks associated with the limited liquidity of the fund and should be viewed as a long-term investment. All investing involves risk, including loss of principal. There can be no assurance that any fund will meet its objectives.

This is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation to purchase any security. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the CIM Real Assets & Credit Fund (“Fund”) carefully before investing. This and other information are contained in the Fund’s prospectus, which may be obtained by contacting your financial professional or visiting www.cimgroup.com. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest.

Below is a summary of some of the principal risks of investing in the Fund. For a more complete discussion of the risks of investing in the Fund, see “Risks” in the Fund’s prospectus. Shareholders should consider carefully the following principal risks before investing in the Fund:

  • Unlike shares of most closed-end funds, the Common Shares will not be listed on any securities exchange;

  • Although the Fund has a quarterly share repurchase program, there is no guarantee that an investor will be able to sell all of the Common Shares that the investor desires to sell. The Fund should therefore be considered to offer only limited liquidity;

  • The capital markets may experience periods of disruption and instability. Such market conditions may materially and adversely affect debt and equity capital markets, which may have a negative impact on the Fund’s business and operations;

  • If a shareholder is able to sell its Common Shares, the shareholder may receive less than its purchase price and the then current NAV per Common Share;

  • The Fund’s distributions may be funded from offering proceeds or borrowings, which may constitute a return of capital and reduce the amount of capital available to the Fund for investment. Although a return of capital will generally not be taxable to a shareholder, it would reduce the shareholder’s cost basis in the Common Shares and may result in higher capital gains taxes, or a lower capital loss, when Common Shares are sold. Any capital returned to shareholders through distributions will be distributed after payment of fees and expenses, as well as the sales load;

  • The Fund has limited operating history;

  • The Fund will be exposed to the risks related to investments in real estate, including risks related to the performance of the real estate market;

  • Because the Fund will concentrate its investments in the Real Estate industry, the Fund may experience more volatility and be exposed to greater risk than it would be if it held a more diversified portfolio;

  • The Fund’s investments in CMBS are subject to all of the risks of the underlying mortgage loans, including interest rate risk;

  • The Fund will primarily invest in real estate through its REIT Subsidiaries, which will be subject to regulatory requirements to qualify as a REIT. The failure of the Fund’s REIT Subsidiaries to qualify as REITs could have a negative impact on the Fund’s investment returns;

  • The Fund’s investments in second lien loans and unsecured loans are lower in priority of payment to Senior Secured Loans, they are subject to the additional risk;

  • The Fund’s investments in Broadly Syndicated Loans involve a number of significant risks;

  • The Fund’s investments in distressed credit investments have significant risk of loss, and the Fund’s efforts to protect its distressed credit investments may involve large costs and may not be successful;

  • The Fund’s credit and credit related investments will generally be in below investment grade instruments commonly referred to as “junk” or high-yield instruments and are regarded as predominantly speculative with respect to the issuer’s capacity to pay interest and repay principal;

  • The Fund’s credit and credit-related investments are subject to risk of covenant breach, which could jeopardize the borrower’s ability to meet its obligations under the debt or equity securities that the Fund holds.

  • The Fund is exposed to risks associated with changes in interest rates through its credit and credit-related investments. If interest rates fall, the Fund may not be able to generate income, and if interest rates rise, the Fund may incur more costs in connection with its use of leverage;

  • To qualify and remain eligible for the special tax treatment accorded to RICs and their shareholders under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), the Fund must meet certain source-of-income, asset-diversification and annual distribution requirements, and failure to do so could result in the loss of RIC status.

  • Certain investments may be exposed to the credit risk of the counterparties with whom the Fund deals;

  • The valuation of securities or instruments that lack a central trading place (such as fixed-income securities or instruments) may carry greater risk than those that trade on an exchange;

  • The Fund has no fixed policy regarding portfolio maturity or duration. Holding long duration and long maturity investments will increase the Fund’s exposure to the credit and interest rate risks described above, including with respect to changes in interest rates through the Fund’s credit and credit-related investments as well as increased exposure to risk of loss;

  • The Fund may be materially adversely affected by market, economic and political conditions globally and in the jurisdictions and sectors in which the Fund invests. Accordingly, the Fund should be considered a speculative investment that entails substantial risks, and a prospective investor should invest in the Fund only if they can sustain a complete loss of their investment.

  • The Fund may make investments internationally, including in emerging markets. Therefore, the Fund has risks relating to international and emerging markets investing. Such risks include, but are not limited to, currency risks, greater volatility, less liquidity, greater custodial risks, less developed legal, tax, regulatory, financial reporting, accounting, and recordkeeping systems and greater political, social, and economic instability.

HOME SELLING PROCESS

PRICE YOUR HOME RIGHT

The biggest mistake to avoid when selling your home is over pricing it. All home sellers have a price in mind that they'd like to receive for their home. If you're thinking about selling, contact a Lyon agent who will provide you with a detailed market analysis of your home's value at no cost or obligation. What you originally paid for your home (plus renovations) will have very little do with the asking price. Comps (comparatives) are the essential tool in determining a home's value. You will need a comparative market analysis, comparing what homes your size in your neighborhood sold for in the last year. Sellers rarely get a 100-percent return on recent repairs and upgrades (some have more impact than others) but those elements still play a part in the overall sale. 

PREPARE YOUR HOME 

you'll need to spend some time making your home immaculate before the Open House signs are set out Your agent will consult with you to determine if staging is necessary, as this often places for-sale homes at the top of the buyer's list. With the newest technology we provide professional photos, virtual tours, and drone footage for your property. Property Reports. Staging Insights Condition ranges from curb appeal to the overall structure and safety of your home. Fewer buyers will want a home that needs major work, so replacing a roof or repairing plumbing or heating/air systems can be beneficial. Minor upgrades or “freshening up” a home is vital. Fresh paint, replacing bad carpets or flooring, fixing doors and windows will put buyers at ease. Cosmetic enhancements like staging, de- cluttering, and creating a fresh and inviting space will make your home stand out to buyers.

HOME BUYING PROCESS

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR OFFER PRICE AND TERMS

Everyone wants the best possible terms when purchasing a home. However it's not always easy determining how much to offer, especially in the face of constantly changing market conditions. Your agent can help you craft a reasonable offer because he or she lives and breathes real estate and knows what it will take to get your offer accepted. In addition to sticking to your budget, your Realtor will review a range of factors including the number of for-sale homes competing for your offer, the terms sellers look for in a clean offer, and any additional terms that are likely to appeal to a specific seller. Whether the market favors buyers or sellers, there will always be comparable market data and fluctuating contractual terms that your agent will be able to analyze in order to help you craft and submit the winning offer!

SUBMITTING AN OFFER

A real estate purchase offer is a legally binding contract that a homebuyer uses to make an offer on a property. It is a document that contains information about the purchase transaction and the homebuyer's rights and obligations. The primary elements of the purchase offer include the offer price, down payment, earnest money deposit, and contractual dates that stipulate when the transaction will close and how many days the buyer has to meet certain conditions including the property inspection, appraisal and loan periods. Within the purchase offer, you will also commit to various additional details including escrow costs, real estate transfer taxes and if any local point of sale ordinances will be paid. Once your agent makes an offer to the seller's agent, you may need to negotiate counter offers to reach final agreement.

THE CLOSING PROCESS

Once your offer has been accepted and your inspections completed, you will need to attend the closing, or settlement. The closing is the legal transfer of ownership from the seller to you. The title or escrow officer will prepare the HUD-1 Settlement Statement, which outlines all of the costs for both the buyer and the seller. You and your agent should schedule a walk-through of the home 24 hours prior to closing to ensure that any agreed-to repairs have been made and that the home is in the condition outlined in the contract. If the property does not meet the agreed-to terms, your agent can delay the closing or request money from the seller to fix any issues. Once the property meets with final approval, the buyer obtains the keys to his or her new home!

STARTING POINT

Right time to buy?

Whether you’re ready to buy a home tomorrow or in five years, we’re here to help. A home is an investment that comes with both benefits and risks. As we’ve covered the benefits, some risks with ownership include upfront down payment and closing costs, home depreciation, and illiquidity.
