We believe that this is not new; it was how the original global programmes were won for the past 15 years.
But as we all know, being an agent is not easy, and its challenges should never be underestimated. It is also important to note that Europe was the second-largest global region for serviced apartments, although the relative maturity of individual country markets varied considerably.

If we ran out of money, I would have to go back to the investors, tell them that their capital reserve money that was slated for renovations was exhausted, and that they needed to put in more money. Failing that, I would lose the building in bankruptcy and never raise money again. With each certified letter containing violations or a summons to appear in court, my despair grew. I had trouble sleeping, I was tense.
A paralyzing fear was starting to overwhelm me. In situations like these, my wife is a rock. She can always put things in perspective and offer support that can lift me up. She has tremendous faith. She reminded me that God loves me no matter what happens, that God is good, and that He only wants good things for me. Maybe I am supposed to learn something. And I slowly started to believe it. However, it took about a week to set in. But when it did, the sense of peace I felt was inexplicable yet tangible.
My body relaxed, and I was able to sleep again — despite the fact that I was scheduled next week for yet another hearing at the Superior Court in WashingtonDC. Because we had been in court so often, the judge wanted to meet in a less formal setting to work through the issues. In attendance were myself, my property manager, the judge, and Paul. The judge and my property manager excused themselves, and suddenly I was alone with Paul.
Some time ago, I made several attempts to communicate with Paul. Once through a 3rd party, and the other time myself. Both attempts went no where. I just remember that we agreed to grab a cup of coffee afterwards. He said he would like to dismiss all charges. He was sharing about his life, and so was I — more, probably, than our common sense should have allowed given our adversarial history.
I am open to the possibility of miracles. The miracle of child birth, the mystery of human consciousness, or a series of coincidences. This development with Paul was so inexplicable that perhaps it was some kind of miracle, too. I also concluded that perhaps the circumstance changed because I had learned the lesson I was supposed to have learned. If you master a lesson, will a situation always improve? But I think I was rewarded in this case with a sudden change of heart that I could not take any credit for.
I had spent thousands of dollars more than expected. My business plan was out the window — I had missed my annual projections by a mile. I felt my credibility with my investors was shot. However, they have been very patient with me, for which I am grateful. This goes a long way with maintaining their trust. I have learned a valuable life lesson, which is to be at peace regardless of the circumstance.
It is a lesson that I am still working on. We have been able to raise the rents in several of the units. We have the cash flow to quickly respond to repairs and make some cosmetic improvements. And we have a good relationship with our tenants.
For me, the key to achieving success as an entrepreneur is a mix of ambition, guts, persistence, discipline, and faith. His focus is buying apartment buildings by raising money from private individuals. You told the good, the bad, and the ugly. And the best part is you nailed the fear explanation. Any investor who steps into a new type of deal and is learning how to do it knows that cold, sleepless, paralyzingly fear sensation when things start to go sideways and you feel like its slipping out of your control.
I believe the difference between the successful entrepreneur and going back to the JOB mentality is how you respond to that fear and what do you do to reduce the effects of it on you. I look forward to your sharing with us more in the future. Congrats, on your commercial deal and making it work. That way they were already familiar with the deal and could move faster.
We had done this early on 2. Congrats Micheal for having victory over this issues and listening to your wife voice you, know thats your angel. So what was the deal with Paul? Did he just want to show you who was in charge? What motivates someone to do that and then just quit like that? He said he wanted to make sure the city inspectors did their job. Thank you for being so open and honest about this, it will help so many people in the future.
I recently heard about Topa and. Reallyglad u wrote this article. Thanks so much for sharing. I look forward to having you here on the blog! I am a firm believer that faith and learning lessons is a big part of this for more people that we often think. I know in my life that faith in God had gotten me through many highs and lows. Congrats to your wife for helping you keep a solid foundation. Thanks for sharing Micheal. The bottom line is the property was way overpaid for.
Owner financing is good IF you are not way overpaying for a property. Owner finance should be market value not over market. The property might eventually catch up with rents and cape rate compression on resale. That is like playing the lottery instead of buying right going in. This was a great article Michael. Thanks for being open and honest with this dealing.
What a crazy story about Paul. Any idea as to what caused his change of heart? Did he realize you were truly trying to improve the property and not just a slum lord? Yes, I think after speaking with him he could see that I was planning on owning the building for a long time and wanted to do a good job. Thanks for your story, Mike. I know what it feels like to fear a big financial loss so I empathize with you.
However, I am wonder if anything aggressive could be done against Paul had he not changed his mind? For instance, could you evict him? Or could you pay him to move out, etc…? The issue is that the tenant was well within his legal right to do what he was doing. He knew the system and was using it to his advantage.
This is easier to do in Washington DC than some other places in the country. In DC, you can really only evict someone who is not paying rent. And even can be complicated if the tenant claims there are housing code violations.
Not easy to navigate. Fortunately, he settled down and we have a good relationship thank God! Never heard of Topa before and boy am I glad. Now i have an idea what to expect if I am ever in a deal that involves more Govt. I love your second point! I learned after investing in one tenant friendly vs landlord friendly states, the difference!
And Paul, come on, he was using the system like he was being paid for it, or as if his housing depended on it. What a happy surprise to see you here. That, and the below-market rents. Michael, great to hear that you survived and prospered.
Congrats to you and thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed the story and learned from your experience. Thank you for sharing! Thanks for sharing the ups and downs. Good luck moving forward! I appreciate all the affirmations from all of you. Now I gotta work on another article for next week -; Thanks again! Learned a lot in each section. Im purchasing single family homes at the moment and trying to build up saving sto purchase a similar sized building.
You gave me a lot to look into while pursuing this. Michael — Thank you so much for sharing your real life experiences doing your first multi-family deal. You provided a real perspective on the ebb and flow of deals and how quickly things can come together, fall apart or drag on. In any case the way yours did. Hey Michael, Great post! Thanks for the detail; it helps to understand the many circumstances that can affect real estate investing.
Thanks again for your help and insight. May He continue to bless you. This is a great article. One of my biggest obstacles of why I have come to a hault on my investing is finding money investors. I have to use my own cash all the time.
I would love to know the details in how you did this instead of just a summary. I have spoken with many just to get me nowhere. So obviously I am doing something wrong. Thank you for sharing this story. I hear this a lot. Raisin money is not hard, but as everything in life, it requires discipline and focus, and a little bit of knowledge -;. Wow Michael that is pretty brutal! Glad that he eventually got over what ever crawled up his butt.
Tough lessons to learn and tougher experiences to go through. Looks like you came through it okay and the property is performing now. Not a bad example of the general resilience of real estate as an investment vehicle! The timing of this is great I started reading about commercial real estate this week, I am looking to make the leap from SFHs 3 to date to apartment buildings with as little of that legal pain you endured. Thank you for the lessons. Could you expand on that? It sounds as though he was baiting you to take illegal action against him, giving him cause for a lawsuit.
Questions about the loan: If so, what type of guarantees did they ask for? Appreciate the sharing — it was enlightening. How is the building operating now? Also I think Joel made an earlier comment about the priced paid for the building being too high. Just reading your moving story has giving me confidence that I too can one day acquire an apartment building. He sounds like an exceptional person, better friend than foe.
I have never done apartment buildings either, although I look for them as a bird dog for a couple investors. This story absolutely reinforced my belief in using local attorneys, engineers, even contractors for large projects. Thank you so much for this story. My husband and I are seeking to become entrepreneurs my vision that he is supporting by purchasing a 40 unit complex.
We currently own rental property, and they are all paid for. Your story has truly inspired me to move forward. Wells … Yes, I am truly grateful for my wife who puts up with me -; good luck with that 40 unit, how exciting! I have a 14 unit apartment building for sale in Helena, AR if anyone is interested in investments. I will finance it for 30 years with low down payment. Was this a hard money lender or was a conventional lender okay with you using investor money as a down payment?
So you did not buy it with no money down? And this was a buy-and-hold long-term investment with your investors? How did you split the profits with them or what was your intended plan here?
