    worst economic case basis.
  • We use the Groups buying power and reputation to
    negotiate master discount deals, primarily with
  • We allow the individual investor to buy direct
    from the seller at the net negotiated price

Our Primary Focus
  • As Risk Managers, we focus on properties where
    exposure to potential market price decline is
  • As part of this process, we also focus on
    maximizing the relationship between our
    expected returns (profits) and the risk that we
  • We choose Areas that have both Serious Growth
    Price Appreciation potential!
  • We dont buy cheap, just because its cheap!

Typical questions we are asked most frequently
(by investors) in addition to the standard can I
get a good deal!
  • What really happened to our Economy?
  • Whats likely to happen next?
  • Why invest in real estate anyway?
  • Is it safe to buy now, and how do we know that it

What really happened to our Economy?
  • The manufacturing sector exported millions of our
    jobs to cheaper labor markets without regard to
    the potential Risks to our Economy.
  • With the decline of manufacturing, the last major
    industry, next to Government or the Service
    industry, was Housing!

  • Housing supports 1 of every 6 employees in the
    US! -whether construction workers,
    developers, builders, sales people, advertising,
    financial institutions, real estate agents (3
    million alone), mortgage brokers, etc.

Now Housing Became The Focus
  • Over the past 15 years or so, there was a
    deliberate effort by the Government and the
    Financial Industry to expand Housing, without
    regard to how it was done or the financial
  • Why?
  • Housing was the last major sector for economic

Now Housing Became The Focus
First, a number of financial products were
introduced to the public.
  • Loans sold off by banks and mortgage brokers to
    loan packagers like Goldman Sachs, Lehman, Morgan
    Stanley, etc. Thus, the evolution of CDOS, MBS,
  • Loans were packaged into portfolios of 100
    million, 1 Billion, etc. A grade paper was
    mixed with lower quality in order to increase
    expected return of the portfolio.

Now Housing Became The Focus
  • Credit Rating agencies were paid to evaluate the
    Loan portfolios, often as AAA quality. Huge
    portfolios were sold off to insurance companies,
    hedge funds, foreign institutions, and
  • Credit Reporting Agencies (Standard Poors,
    Moodys, and Fitch) failed to include in their
    Risk Management Analysis the possibility that
    home prices could decline. If true Risk
    Management principles had been followed, most of
    these portfolios would not have been sold.

Now Housing Became The Focus
  • Anyone who wanted to buy real estate could do so.
    One could buy homes with no verification of
    income, and no investment in the property.
  • Many so called investors (really speculators)
    bought property with the sole intention of
    flipping it. The stage was set FOR ECONOMIC

Obviously, no one paid attention to the two basic
principles of Risk Return (Reward) Management
Successful Investing
  • The principle is simple for any given level of
    expected return, what investment will have the
    least amount of Risk (or probability of not
    achieving that Return).
  • The alternative principle is that for whatever
    level of risk one is willing to accept, which
    investment would produce the highest Return.

What Risk?
  • In reality, the real collateral for the new
    Financial System was the expectation that housing
    prices would continue to rise.
  • Despite the fact that these large financial
    organizations all maintain Risk Assessment
    Departments, it seems that the Risk side of the
    equation was never considered.

Whats likely to happen next?
  • The Housing industry has to recover in order for
    the Economy to recover We believe that both the
    Government and the Financial industry know this
    to be a fact.
  • In order for this to happen
  • Loosen lending restrictions previous
    homeowners, investors this will automatically
    substantially increase housing demand.
  • Government to provide more financial resources
    to the lending institutions and stimulate the
    market by providing income tax credits to all
    buyers (not just to first time home buyers).

Whats likely to happen next?
  • Increased Housing Demand will begin to dry up
    Foreclosures, Short Sales, Bank REO deals. Home
    Prices will rise, thus increasing the value of
    the mortgage collateral held by the Banking
  • Banks will be able to stop adding to their loss
    reserves.  Some reserves could even be reversed. 
    This would add substantial liquidity to the
    Banking System.
  • 2. Both consumer and Bank Lending confidence
    would rise. People will protect their homes,
    rather than walk away for something cheaper.
  • 3. Existing home inventory will decline and new
    home construction, which declined from over 1.4
    million per year to less than 400,000, will start
    increasing again.
  • 4. Millions of new jobs will be created and the
    Economy will start rising.

Why invest in real estate anyway?
  • Home prices need to rise in order to save the
    Banking industry.
  • Median personal housing debt-to-income ratio has
    declined from more than 40 to now only 19.
    Home prices can now increase substantially
    without the typical household (with a 50,000
    annual income) being forced out of the house
  • By owning homes and owing mortgages, we can take
    advantage of the coming Hyperinflation. We can
    let the banking system assume the inflation risk
    since typically, 80 of the cost of the home will
    be owed as a note and mortgage.

Is it safe to buy now?
The answer is yes, if you invest based on
reasonable Risk Management Principles. Without
this, the investor is always faced with
significant exposure
  • Its probably not safe to invest now, for the
    typical investor who merely acquires an asset
    based on the belief that it has a big discount,
    or that it will probably increase in value some
  • Anyone can offer you property at a discount. But,
    a discount to what?
  • How do you know that the property could not drop
    substantially from your purchase price?
  • Is the regional location supportive of future
    property value increases?
  • Whats the likelihood of a continued positive
    cash flow?

The Fischer Investment Group,
A Successful Approach To Investing
In Real Estate
Our investment strategy is centered on some basic
  • First and foremost - Minimizing our Risk
    (Exposure) to further potential market price
    declines we do this by estimating replacement
    cost on a worst economic case basis.
  • We primarily buy new homes, townhomes, etc from
    builders, with a full year warranty. These
    properties all come rent ready.
  • Second, invest in areas which have reasonable
    potential for future growth, both in population
    and pricing. Were not looking to reinvent the
  • In other words, were not looking to invest in
    out of the way places or in areas that have been
    beaten down, with no realistic expectation of
    recovery in the short or intermediate term.

The Fischer Investment Group,

A Successful Approach To Investing In
Real Estate
  • Third, we invest in properties that produce
    positive cash flow, as long as there is
    reasonable financing.
  • And, fourth, we always establish a local rental
    operation to support our investors.
  • Most importantly, we use our buying power and
    superior negotiating skills to establish
    investing relationships where our prices, based
    on or below estimated replacement cost, cannot be
    obtained by any other party (realtor or
  • We pass on all of the savings to the individual
    investor. We, as principles, pay the same price
    for property as do the investor.

How are we able to get these deals?
  • Builders know that our investors get a great
    deal, because we pass on all of the savings. 
    Thus, they expect a large number of satisfied,
    repeat customers, with a high close ratio. 
  • Builders know that we, as financial experts, help
    our investors to obtain reasonable financing.
  • Builders use our services to seed new
    subdivisions, reduce standing inventory, close
    out subdivisions, raise capital, eliminate
    builder debt, etc.
  • Builders can still sell property they have
    committed to us.  We have exclusivity on price,
    but not on property.
  • Sometimes, publicly owned builders need some
    additional revenue to meet publicly forecasted
    revenue targets.

How are we able to get these deals?
  • Due to the Fischer Groups purchasing capacity,
    Builders are able to eliminate a fair amount of
    their standard operating expenses when dealing
    with us. Builder savings can include
  • Operating expenses in the building phase
  • Reduced carrying cost of inventory
  • Reduced model center carrying cost
  • Reduced selling expenses no on-site sales
  • Eliminated marketing and advertising expenses

Estimating Replacement cost?
  • Land cost
  • Material
  • Labor
  • G A
  • Selling Expenses

How to use basic Risk Management principles on a
simplified basis

  • This chart indicates the probability of achieving
    the sale price of 200,000 over 5 years is 90

Market Data Shows That Housing Has Already
Started to Recover Current New Home Starts
  • This Recoverys New Home Starts seem to follow
    the same basic pattern as other recent Recovery
    New Home Starts.
  • Vs. other Housing Recoveries, we see that
    currently New Home Starts are at an All-Time
    Low (below 400K).
  • However, there is a very important difference
    here. Today, we have a much larger US
    population than ever before.
  • As Consumer Demand Credit Availability improve,
    there is the potential for a Huge Spike in New
    Home Values New Starts.

Market Data Shows That Housing Has Already
Started to Recover Home Price vs. Rent Price
  • In 1997, an avg. monthly Mortgage Payment was
    about equal to the avg. monthly Rent Received.
  • During 2000-2006, Home prices started to take off
    during the latest Housing Boom. Many people could
    not afford to own Homes anymore started to
    consider Renting.
  • Latest statistics show that most homes are
    quickly approaching an equilibrium point again
    where Housing costsRenting costs.
  • Our Fischer Group only deals are already priced
    below this equilibrium point to give our
    investor buyers substantial positive cash flow
    from their Renters.
  • This overall market equilibrium indicates a
    shift from Renting back to owning Houses again.

Market Data Shows That Housing Has Already
Started to Recover New Homes Sales s
  • New Homes Sales seemed to surge at the end of
    past recessions, ultimately, leading to a Housing
  • This Graph only shows data up to Jan 2009. It
    does not include recent increases in New Home
    Sales that have occurred in each of the past 4
