Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. [00:00:48] Sam Wilson: Eric is responsible for the strategic planning and growth of the company and maintains oversight of all aspects of Bar. Eric, welcome to the show. [00:00:57] Eric Barvin: Thank you, Sam. I'm excited to be here with you [00:00:59] Sam Wilson: today. Hey, man, the pleasures mine. I'm so glad to be with you as well. There are three questions, Eric, ask every guest who comes on the show in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now, and how did you get. [00:01:10] Eric Barvin: Absolutely. I started it in after college working as a mortgage banking analyst for a very short period of time. From 2008, 2009, company went bankrupt, couldn't get a job. I got laid off and decided to start my own business, investing in multifamily real estate, and I've been doing it ever since. [00:01:27] Sam Wilson: A mortgage banking analyst is not the job for longevity. I wouldn't think in 2008. [00:01:36] Eric Barvin: No, no, no, no. It was commercial mortgages, so it was, it was multifamily, but still it was, it was a tough time. [00:01:42] Sam Wilson: That's interesting. Is that what turned you on to the multifamily investment opportunity, or how, how did you pick multifamily from [00:01:49] Eric Barvin: that? So, a few reasons. One is I had this kind of knowledge on how to underwrite multifamily and, and you know, just how the process worked and valuation. And more importantly, I didn't have any money. And so the beauty of multifamily is that you can create value when there's cash flow. And so, you know, multifamily, you can lease it every day. You can, you can rent apartments out. Whereas on commercial, retail, industrial office, there's high dollar brokers that are involved in high dollar tis that are involved and I just didn't have the capital to go. You know, sit on vacant real estate and wait for a broker to bring me a tenant, or for me to find a tenant and spend the money. So I needed, I needed money day one. And multifamily was the only thing that really worked. [00:02:33] Sam Wilson: That's normally a disqualifier for people when they're like, Oh, hey, by the way, I mean that, that's the, that's the average investor, or the average wannabe investors kind of excuse is, I don't need money. No, I can't get started. How did you solve that [00:02:46] Eric Barvin: problem? So I was fortunate. So, you know, starting in 2009, I was fortunate with, with, with good timing. The first property I ever acquired was 158 unit property in Baytown, Texas for 1.2 million, about $7,000 a unit. And I had my grandparents who were very supportive of all their grandchildren gave me a hundred thousand dollars loan. Said they would give me a hundred thousand dollars loan and then gave me a hundred thousand dollars loan for the first project I did. Wow. And so that, that turned into my co-investment and the total equity raise was $500,000. I raised 400,000 from friends, parents and I got a, a loan from a friend who worked at a bank, a local bank, who could write up to a million dollar loan without loan committee. So he gave me a 950,000 loan and I raised a half million dollars and we bought it and renovated the property. And the rest is history. Yeah. [00:03:41] Sam Wilson: You got, you got a what'd you say That, that, that they could, he could write a million dollar loan without loan committee. In 2009, you got that. [00:03:50] Eric Barvin: You got that pulled 2010, 2010, 2010. [00:03:53] Sam Wilson: Even snow, I mean, lending. Lending was tight, man. It was then [00:03:58] Eric Barvin: that's, It was tight. Yeah. And it was funny because I actually had all of these, you know, when I started my, my on my own, I was trying to build relationships and before I had any properties, I was still preparing for the moment when I would have a property and I was talking to lenders and they all said that they would finance me whenever I found something. They liked me a lot. And whenever I, when I actually had this deal, none of 'em would do it. And my friend who was a year younger than me, we, I'm, you can't tell on the video, but I'm very tall, play basketball in college and, and he played basketball with me and he said, I can get you alone. I can get you alone. And I was like, There's no way this guy's gonna be able to get me alone. You know, he doesn't, He's junior guy. Turns out he was the only guy that could get me all. [00:04:36] Sam Wilson: I mean, what I'm just, again, I know this was whatever, 2009, bad with math. So 13 years ago, is that Yeah, that's right. 13 years ago. $7,000 a door. It just sounds like a screaming deal. Was there just hair all over the deal, or was it just that that was the time, That was the price that the market [00:04:55] Eric Barvin: would bear. You know, there's hair, it was a foreclosure. It was 50% occupied, lot of down units. But it was the price that the market would bear. You know, I, no one was looking to buy multifamily at that time. No one was finding, being able to finance multifamily at that time. And Wells Fargo, their loan amount was 3.6 million. They sold it to me for 1.2, and I felt like for them, they're just getting one thing off their books and they're gonna worry about 60, 70, 80 million our loans, not 3 million loans. And so what's the difference? Right. Yeah. The right time. Yeah. But no, a lot. I mean, from 2010 to 2013 the vast majority of what we bought was somewhere between maybe seven was the lowest, but somewhere between seven and 15,000 in North. [00:05:38] Sam Wilson: Right. Right. Yeah. And that the times have certainly changed. Yes. At what point do you feel like. And again, you're still in multifamily today, but, or is there a point when we're overbought or when people are now just wildly speculating, have we hit that stage yet? [00:05:55] Eric Barvin: I think we're actually a little past that stage. On the speculation side, I think there's, there, there's been a lot of speculation specifically in B and C apartments. We got out of the Class C business. A little over a year ago, maybe more than that disposed of all of those older properties. We still have some Class B apartment communities that we're actually in the process of selling right now. But since 2018 all we've acquired is class A communities or all we developed is Class A communities. We've sort of speculation on that space as well, but the multi-family, in my mind, Has a strong correlation to the credit worthiness of the demo, the renter demographics, right? And so I think that there's a premium that has to be paid when you take on more risk, whether that risk isn't the form of location, the form of vintage, you know, order properties have more risk, and then demographics. If the renter income ratio is 35% instead of 15%, there's more risk to that transaction. So I think of speculation when those risks are not understood very well. And people are kind of doing things for fees. And so I think we've already passed that. And I think that there's, with interest rates rising, there's a realization of, oh my gosh, you know, how, what's my exit? How do I exit? And I think that, you know, assuming that. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out. It really [00:07:09] Sam Wilson: will. I want to hear maybe in a minute how you guys are finding opportunity in Class A, but I guess before we get there, do, do you feel like there's gonna come a time in your buy box where B and C will reenter that picture? [00:07:24] Eric Barvin: look, I think we're always open to buying well located B and c for the idea. We can eventually tear it down. our filter is really location based. And so if a BRC property came up in a location we wanted to buy in, or with a demographic, an older property with a strong demographic, I think we'd be open to it. We've toyed with the idea if there becomes, not to say that the world's gonna go back 2010, but if there becomes. Significant distress in the BNC space. Do we go back in? And I think the general consensus here has been we don't go back in. We stick to what we know, we stick to what we're good at and , our competency is definitely more in the class A space today than it is in the class BNC space. [00:08:02] Sam Wilson: Yeah. That's, that, that's the question is, you know, if, if there does become distress in that and prices again, you know, not that I ever expect 'em to get back to the $7,000 a door. Yeah. Range. But you know, if they do, you know, drop precipitously, you know, is, is that where someone like yourself says, Oh, You know what? Maybe we'll get back in, but it sounds like the answer is no. Just because you have your buy box inside of Class A, you know the asset you're buying, that's also what you're developing. Tell me your thought process behind that. [00:08:32] Eric Barvin: So if you looked, if you looked at 2010, right? And I bought this property for 7,000 a door, and at the same time someone bought a class A property for that was distressed for $120,000 a. Okay. Cause that's kind of what they sold for 10 years ago. Okay. Well, 10 years later, the one that was $120,000 door became 220,000 a door, and the one that was seven became 50. Hmm. And not to say that there's a bad, there's a bad, you know, there's maybe a better return on the 7,000 R door one. But your life, your stress , the amount of capital you had to put in the project after the fact the demographic you're renting to it's a lot easier to, to operate that kind of property. And I think you still do experience quite, quite a bit of appreciation in space. Maybe not the same as the but, but there's a trade off always. You know, like I said, the demographics really drive where there's risk in a, in a, in an multifamily investment, in my opinion, [00:09:32] Sam Wilson: for sure. Yeah. It, it sounds like , the risk adjusted return plus the amount of time that maybe you have to put into some of those more vintage assets for you guys just doesn't make sense anymore. Yeah, correct, Correct. That's all. Okay, fantastic. I love that. Tell me about Class A, You know, what, what is the opportunity and then what is the risk you guys currently see in, in the Class A assets you're both buying and then also building? [00:09:56] Eric Barvin: So I think just on the, the opportunity, what we like about Class A is that the low rent income ratios, meaning that someone who spends, you know, 10% on of their income, on rent has the potential to spend more on. And as we look and we evaluate what rising interest rates are going to do or are doing to the single family market and how expensive it's becoming to get a mortgage on a single family home, we think that that translates into more people staying renters and paying more rent and rental rates rising. And so we like that space because we feel like those individuals. A $3,200 two bedroom apartment could go to $4,200 because they can afford it. Right. And, you know, that's, that's why we like the space. The things that, you know, obviously we're heavily aware of are floating rate debt. We acquired three properties in December with floating rate debt and those properties. Now, even though we have caps, we got caps, but even though we have caps, the debt service increased substantially. And you know, now we have to escrow for buying new caps and there's a lot of fluctuations. And so anything with the maturity or floating rate with CapEx expiring soon was something we're very aware of. Fortunately, we don't have much with maturities in the next few years. And then you know, on the acquisition side, you know, we're not afraid of negative leverage. I think a lot of people are afraid of negative leverage, meaning that the cap rate is lower than the interest rate. We're very focused on rental growth, rental rate growth. And so if we feel like the rental rate growth program is, is, is like right in our lab and like very clear that we can achieve those results. We're okay with negative leverage as long as we can get to neutral, you know, within 12 to 18 months. Development is a little bit more difficult in some ways because of the rising interest rate expense and rising construction costs. But at the same time, you're kind of pushing your stable stability out five years. Your stabilization date out five years. And so, there's more time to get things wrong, if that makes sense. As opposed to on an acquisition where, you know, every quarter. Yourself, your investors, your team. Hey, , did you meet your performer? Did you meet your performance? So development's not a bad place to be, I think right now if you have the right capital for it, right? [00:12:12] Sam Wilson: No, absolutely. I wanna go back to the negative leverage comment where you, you said that you're not a, you're not opposed to that. How are you underwriting an asset with negative leverage? Outside of say, you know, just going by strict comp saying, Okay, you know, everybody around me is charging X, Y, Z, so we can actually get there if we do, you know, abc, how are you underwriting those such that it makes sense to go into a deal with negative leverage? [00:12:37] Eric Barvin: Well, so I think there's just, there's obviously a couple components. The first component is, you know, your price, right? So I think if you look at the pool of communities and you say, Well, everyone sold for 250 unit, I'm paying 200. Well, I think that there's a case be made of, Okay, well maybe it's not making. Today, but I don't think interest rates are gonna be high forever. And, you know, we're getting it at a higher cap rate than they got in at and a better basis. And so I think there's some logic to that. What we look at really is what you would call probably like lost to lease or lease trade out rates. So we're looking at that and trying to forecast one. How can we improve based on what they're already doing. But also, you know, like we're looking at our property now and it's the only property that the company owns in Texas and they manage this themselves. And so it's the only property they manage in Texas and they own in Texas. So they're not operating it to its maximum potential. So it's hard to say, Well, yes, we're just gonna take their cap rate and plug it in, or whatever. Because you have to kind of understand the market and understand where it's going and, and where it could go. Obviously you don't wanna pay too much for that because you wanna still get the reward of that. But you wanna pay, you know, as much as you have to pay and benefit from the rest. [00:13:50] Sam Wilson: When it comes to your development projects, are you guys currently putting more projects in the ground today as we speak? Are you guys just finishing out what you already have in the pipeline? [00:14:03] Eric Barvin: So we're gonna start another project, a big mixed use project. And then . About two months , it's, you know, something we've been working on for years now. So, it is moving forward. And then we're also consistently looking for sites, mostly at this time, suburban sites. That, that make a little more sense from an underwriting perspective because you can build three, four story wood frame product as opposed to podium product or, or midrise product that wood has come down. And I think wood's gonna come down even further. But concrete and steel have not come down and so, you know, high density is very difficult to pencil right. [00:14:39] Sam Wilson: that's really insightful. Yeah. Wood. I haven't checked the lumber futures here recently, but certainly gosh, it was probably a month ago I looked at it and it was, it was pretty astounding how far back down wood products have come. [00:14:51] Eric Barvin: Yeah, absolutely. I think that we just, we had, we just approved an IC meeting, this development project to move forward and in the model previously it was at seven 50. And now it's at 500 or five 50. And so, you know, they updated that which, which, which allowed us to absorb some of the other. You know, increases in construction costs. [00:15:13] Sam Wilson: Right, right. Yeah, I'm sure, I'm sure it's not a profit center anywhere, but it's just, let me absorb that from what else is gonna cost us more than we anticipated. That's uh, that's about the way that absolutely goes. Do you guys use the markets at all to hedge on, I mean, on these giant construction projects that, you know, a move in the market one way or another can really. Eat into things. I mean, if that's not a, a tool you guys use, how do you guys protect against fluctuating materials prices? [00:15:39] Eric Barvin: Well, so on materials, we actually buy all the materials. We, we don't build the product or project ourselves, so we get a GMP from the contractor and at the time they acquire the materials. I think they take usually six months. I don't know the exact, I have a construction, inhouse construction team and development team, and they would know more about how that works, but we're not essentially, You know, making bets on lumber, making bets on concrete. You know , we basically agree to the, the gmp, we have our own contingencies. They have a contingency, and then we move forward with. [00:16:13] Sam Wilson: Let's talk about team for a minute. It's, you know, starting off from you as buying a single 158 unit on your own 7,000 bucks a door to now building, you know, a multi-year mixed use project. You guys have been building or, or, you know, designing and, and having the works to now finally getting that developed. You get development things going on. You guys are still active buyers in the class A market. You got a lot of people I would imagine that you've onboarded and brought onto your team. If you were to give advice to anybody that's starting out and or just now scaling their business as it pertains to team, what is one thing you would tell them either that you wish you knew back in 2009, or maybe even something that you said, Hey, this is something I've done really well, [00:16:56] Eric Barvin: this could take over the whole podcast So, you know, I think that the, the biggest lesson of myself is to understand where my strengths are. And to hire around my weaknesses and eventually to also hire , for my strengths. So, you know, I'm fortunate. I do have a very robust team today. I've also made incredible investments into my company, so hiring people, physical investments of, of people, but also technology investments. Office investment, you know, there's lots. Things that I've come out of pocket for much more than just the fee income that we get because my obligation is to our partners and to our investors into myself to make sure that we are great stewards of capital, and because we are operators, we need to be great operators. And so I would say don't be hesitant to invest in yourself. It's so funny when I meet entrepreneurs and they say, Oh, I wanna invest in your deal. And I'm like, Invest in your own company. Get your company to be self sustainable. You know, hire a coo, hire a cfo, hire a C. You know, hire these expert level people and then when you have extra money in the future, then you can invest. But don't take money that would go into growing your company and invest in my projects. Because you need to, you know, invest in yourself first and foremost. And. That's, that's definitely been my approach. We use a lot of technology. We use predictive index. We have lots of accountability tools that we, that we do with, you know, one on ones and quarterly reviews and things like that. I dunno if that's getting two in the weeds, but there's lots you can learn about. You know, recruiting, retaining the best and the brightest. And I think that's one of our goals as a company is , to have a company that's, that's honed to some of the best people in our industry. [00:18:37] Sam Wilson: Do, do you feel like that is a skillset that you have honed over the last 13 years, or is that something, and, and it's okay if you did, but is that something as you came into this business, you really feel like you had a good grasp? On team and people, I guess. Not management, that's not the right word, but maybe even the right way to put that is kind of leader creation. Cause it sounds like that's what you've really focused on is investing in yourself and those around you to create leaders inside of your company. Is that, is that a skillset you already came into this with or is that something you've built in, kind of learned on your own as you, as you've you know, built this company? [00:19:10] Eric Barvin: It's definitely a learned skill. It's not, not something that was in, not innately in me. I didn't work in corporate America for more than like seven or eight months, so I didn't really have the, the training, I would say, to be a good manager of anyone. But I have worked very hard to try to not forget things that I tell people. Like I have a little process where I write them down and when I meet with them next time I say, Hey, oh yeah, what's going on? So and so, and I've also worked very hard to, I'm not a micromanager, so I'm not someone that's, that's in people's business or I don't want to tell you how to do something. So , in our company, I really hired experts. If you want a website, you see who's here. I mean, people would 10, 20, 30 years of experience. So, It's not a situation where I think that I know everything. I think that, and oftentimes I know the least and I'm kind of the, the, the ring master that's making the show go on. But I don't know how to do any of the tricks myself. And so that's probably just a humbleness. I think that, that you, I think I had to have. To bring on these people. [00:20:12] Sam Wilson: Absolutely. And I, and I think that's, it is, it's always intimidating, I think in that position where it's like, wait, I'm bringing you on and you're way, you're way better than me at this, which is what you want. I mean, every good business owner wants to hire people around them that are way smarter than they are, but it's like, Oh wait, you're better at this. I remember I was in my early twenties and I got thrown into a business and I was hiring guys twice my age. And I was like, Oh wait, this is really, really outside. And it took me a minute to get used to that. It was like, okay, this is, this is a lot. And I've got to bring on people that know what they're doing and I don't. And learning, learning that humility is is yeah, it's a valuable skill. Are there resources that you would recommend to our listeners that maybe you've used to craft that skill in yourself? [00:20:56] Eric Barvin: You know what? There's a podcast. I don't wanna pitch somebody else's podcast. [00:21:00] Sam Wilson: Please do. I mean, this is what we're looking for is, is, is ways that we can all grow as, as business owners and leaders. So this is, this is great. You know, I look forward, Eric, if you're finding those resources, you know, certainly will include those there in the show notes. I know that's something it's kind of a hot topic for me right now is on the leadership development front. It's something. That I'm aggregating as many resources as I can for our listeners and for myself that, that, that, you know, develop those skill sets in us. Because like you said, you know, you, you had what, seven months in corporate America and then you're off to the races on your own. So yeah, that's that's a great place to start. I love what you have built. It's it's pretty impressive here in the last 13 years to do everything that you have done up to this point. And certainly enjoy what you know, you share with us your insights and coming on the show today. This was loads of fun. Erica, if our listeners wanna get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do that? [00:21:52] Eric Barvin: So I'd say the best thing, if you wanna learn more about, you know, our investments is just to go on the website. It's www.barb.com, so we have a link on there. You know, that's simple. It's a contact form. If you put your information in we can start building the relationship and, and have someone from our team reach out to you. Kate Ke is our head of invest relations. She's also on the website. The big thing , with our business model is that there's no cost to see our deal flow. So basically, if you want more deal flow, if you wanna see what other people are doing just, you know, go on the website, sign up, and we're, you know, we'll send opportunities on, on the Verizon as they come. You know, I'm a, I'm usually the largest investor in each project, and so that, that gives you a lot of comfort typically. And so, anyway, we're, we're all about alignment and long term, and so if anyone's interested, you'll definitely reach out. [00:22:39] Sam Wilson: Fantastic. That's Barvin.com, B a r v i n.com. Eric, thank you again from on the show today. I certainly appreciate it. [00:22:47] Eric Barvin: Thank you, Sam. It's been great.

It would only be added to the primary surgeon. I have been coding for over 20 years and never used a global modifier on an assistant claim with no denied claims. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Scanner School - Everything you wanted to know about the Scanner Radio Hobby

Do you need an aftermarket antenna for your scanner? Will changing your antenna help or impair your scanner's performance? What You Need To Know Stock antennas included with your scanner can cover large frequencies. Antennas with wide coverage will sacrifice performance. Antennas with too narrow coverage can also impair your reception. You don't want to have an 800 MHz antenna on your scanner when you're trying to also listen to VHF. However, if you have an 800MHz antenna and need to monitor 800MHz, then you may find a big improvement in reception. When we look at aftermarket antennas, we need to check what type of connector do we have on top of our scanner. Today's scanners use BNC or some style of SMA. You need an antenna to match or buy adapters to make your new antenna match your scanner's antenna jack. After market antennas can have gain, which can certainly help us pull in weaker signals. There may be times where you want to cause an intentional degradation of reception If you have issues with P25 simulcast, maybe you want to knock out distant transmitters and detuning your antenna might actually help you receive better. If you are receiving well enough using the stock antenna, will swapping the antenna out actually improve anything? You can't receive 120% of a signal.   ====================================
