Located on the northern banks of the Licking and Ohio River junction, Cincinnati is the third-largest city in Ohio and the 65th-largest city in the United States. Cincinnati was also the first major American city founded after the American Revolution, which is why it is sometimes thought of as the first purely “American” city. It was one of Winston Churchill’s favorite U.S. cities. He called it, “…the most beautiful of the inland cities of the union.”

In recent years, Cincinnati has become a popular destination for new and relocating corporate headquarters, including 10 Fortune 500 companies and 17 Fortune 1000 companies. Some of the more well known of these companies include: Procter & Gamble, The Kroger Company, Macy’s, Inc., and General Electric. Today, the Cincinnati metro area is recognized as one of the nation’s 25 fastest developing regions (according to the Brookings Institution) with a Gross Metro Product of $119 Billion.

How Do I Check the Soil in Florida and in General? – Yossi Beit Yosef – Post 5

# Entrepreneur of the Week Yossi Beit Yosef # Post 5
How do I check the soil in Florida and in general?
In post 2 – I mentioned that developers or investors do not ask what can be done with the land?
This is a very important question because only if we know what can be done with the soil can we know what to test and start the testing process.
An equally important second question, is what is our goal in the deal? – What is our starting point and what do we want to do with the land in general?
The answers to these questions will give us an answer to the question: what tests, I want to do and how much money I want to spend on tests!
The most important thing is to know the area and know the rules of the place – how do you do it?
Open up county websites, talk to local land brokers, and travel at least once to get to know the area.
If we take the example: Florida is a state that protects the flora and fauna and has many restrictions on this issue in different areas – ignorance can make you buy land at too expensive a price.
In Texas, on the other hand, it is advisable to pay attention to the issue of “mineral rights” – you would not want to purchase land in which the oil rights will remain in the hands of the seller! Especially if one day you find yourself sitting on a huge oil slick 🙂
Zvika came to me to help him sell land he had bought a few years earlier. “I have an excellent plot, my corner was proud of Zvika in my ears,” The test we did revealed that there are two turtle nests on the field.
In Florida as soon as there is turtle nesting – the lot is automatically declared a nature reserve and construction on it is prohibited,
The training of the plot for rebuilding increases the price of moving the turtles to another place – the price is about $ 6,000 per nest
So a potential buyer of Zvika’s plot will have to invest another $ 12,000
The price of the plots at that time was $ 8,000, so it made no sense to buy Zvika’s plot.
Zvika also bought the plot at an exorbitant price of about $ 35,000 and had a hard time dealing with the bitter cut.
And he decided to find his own solution – at this point I said goodbye to him – leaving you to imagine Zvika’s solution!
If Zvika had done the necessary tests, he would not have reached this state – get to know the area!
My friend Yossi Golan wrote in his post as an entrepreneur this week an orderly list of what should be checked for construction needs, read his post there is a detailed list and I will not repeat it here.
As a flipper of lands, I will perform only an initial inspection and the rest of the inspections I will leave to a customer who wants to purchase the land, as an entrepreneur who wants to build tomorrow morning I will conduct other inspections.
One of the important tests to be performed for construction purposes are survey tests and measurements called survay
The Land Survey defines the boundaries and features of a plot of land, including roads, service lines, buildings and natural elements such as ponds and streams. Other facilitations cross the property.
Because the survey needs of a commercial real estate investor are different from those of a homeowner who adds a garage – and both are different from the needs of the lender – there are many different types of surveys.
These are the most common, although the commonly known names may differ slightly depending on the location of the land:
1. Mortgage or ALTA / ACSM survey
This is the comprehensive survey that most lenders need underwriting requirements. This ensures that the property is as described in the legal documents and covers all the features and characteristics of the property.
2. Boundary Survey – This is the survey that the homeowner will be able to identify and verify the legal boundaries of a property.
3. Location Survey – This is a comprehensive border survey with information on improvements, usually used for the purposes of area loans and permits.
4. Web Design Survey – This survey combines a topographic survey of roads, canals, services and batteries with a boundary survey. Web design surveys are used to plan home and subdivision plots, commercial and industrial developments, transportation infrastructure and leisure facilities.

Flips of Land Versus Flips of Singles – Entrepreneur of the Week – Yossi Beit Yosef – Post 4

# Entrepreneur of the Week Yossi Beit Yosef # Post 4
Flips of land versus flips of singles
Remember my story from the first post?
How did I get into the land industry?
“… I sipped my cold coffee, it was a little after 12 noon and I ask myself, what did I do what I got into it what me and the lands and more on the west coast of Florida (I live on the east coast)…” (this is a sentence from the first post)
I look at the address Cape Coral – yes I know there is such a city, considered beautiful, developing – I have never been there
What now ? I go into Zilo see prices in different ranges, do not understand what the differences are and come out well I take a breath, another lock from the cold coffee (remind you – Sunday lunch on the terrace – hot in Florida) I go to the district appraiser’s site, first time I’m on this site I think to myself, I enter the details of the property and I start going through the data on the screen oh beauty the property is valued by the appraiser at $ 7,000 moment but it is written that he bought the property for $ 35,000 What is happening here Did the appraiser make a mistake?
I keep browsing the site and I find that I can see the plot and the boundaries of the plot by looking at the GIS map and when I mark the neighboring plot then I get the details of the plot owner – what could be simpler than calling someone who already owns a plot and asking him if he is interested In another plot? And so I started calling all the landowners on the street and then moved to the next street, while talking to landlords I learned what the buying and selling range of the plots in this area was more than the appraiser estimated and much less than the price Gil paid for his land in some calls they asked me what price I asked answered. To me “if this is the price you sell then sell my plot too”, I finally got to the buyer who said – I will buy your plot – you have more plots – I told him maybe let me check, I went back to the same people who asked if I was willing to sell them Their plots and at the end of the day after Gil agreed to get well below his investment price (realized he was cheated at the time of purchase) I sold my plots 3 plots and a total profit of about $ 15,000.
It was almost 6 in the evening and I replaced the cup of coffee with a cup of frozen margarita when I realized that one Sunday I earned $ 15,000 and then the head starts working for a moment if I do it every Sunday – then in a month I will earn $ 60,000 and if I dedicate another day This week it will be $ 120,000 and if I dedicate another day to it then… (my head started to spin – I do not know if from the margarita or the thoughts)… All this from the chair at home without moving the car, without walking around dirty and ruined houses, without quarreling with the bunny renovator and without getting upset about delays Of the municipality – I discovered that I can do real estate without headaches, I discovered that I earn much more than the flips of singles I have done so far – a new business was born and since then I do not look back.
A week ago I was dealing with a termite problem that was discovered in one of the flips, I get a call from my buyer – do you have any more plots? “No” I tell him “but I can search”
Well he tells me you will find me in this and that area – but not such lands are lands of this kind and as he explains to me more questions are born to me and then he says “Come to Cape Coral I will do you a tour and teach you what to look for me”
And so it turned out he was one of the largest land dealers in Florida, he introduced me to his title company and to realtors who specialize in the area and land, he taught me what to watch out for and what not to do.
In conversations I had with traditional real estate flippers I found that most of them do not know how to calculate the time element in their projects and the conclusions I have reached are as follows:
The average flip of buying a single renovation and sale lasts (from the day you spent money until the day you made money) for about half a year.
Everyone calculates profits in percentages and returns only but let’s check how much it is in money and how long did it take to earn it?
