Hi all, another strategy thread Just working through some stuff and thought I would tap into the PC brains trust. We have been building a business for the past few years with the key aim of getting into real estate, which has been successful. Company is making ~$100K per year and banks are happy to lend to us. The next stage is to step out of that business (probably by selling it, but there are other options we are exploring) and start making a "wage" from real estate. This is how we plan on doing it: Currently we are moving houses from cities and placing them on regional town blocks. We aim to be able to pull $100-150K equity out of each project (which is what has been happening - if you want actual project figures let me know and I'll post them), with the potential to pull up to $250K equity on some projects due to further developing (subdividing) the land. For each new project we need around $80-$100K to complete. Based on these figures, we could pull the remainder equity out as a wage (say $20K++ per project) - if we aim to complete, on average, 4 projects per year we would then be making $80K per year through real estate. Subsidising that with another business idea we have would get us up past the $100K mark pretty quick ensuring the banks still like us. We have been planning this for a while and so have structured the current business so that if we sell it we would only be selling the "trading as" entity and keeping the actual company with the ability for Company A (the real estate company - already established) to pay Company B (the entity employed to project manage and complete the project trade/design wise) therefore ensuring the bank that serviceability for loans is still there. Anyone see any gaping holes I've missed?
