I think, for me personally, in what we do, by far, the largest risk is overpaying for an asset. You could take a good investment and make it a poor one, by paying the wrong price. Or vice versa, you could take a mediocre investment and make it a wonderful one by paying the right price. So we focus diligently on not overpaying. And the way we do that.

Right now, I still think COVID. And just the environment we're in is the biggest risk, especially if you're dealing with C class properties, you tend to deal with residents who are on the lower end of the socio economic scale. So these are the people that you know, their servers, waitresses, receptionist, they actually have to go into work. So if there's a shutdown, like, they're not going into work, or if they get COVID, like, and they may not have a job anymore. So I think that is a huge risk,

Every investor should ask whenever they invest into a property or a fund is what is the risk versus return because that's what matters when you're looking to make your investments. When you look at ground up real estate development, which is really what urban catalyst is, you really have to compare it to a group that goes out and buys existing stabilized real estate assets. Because you have a much better idea of what you're getting into, if you're buying an asset that has a tenant, it has a cash flow,

Three, three ways to manage to kind of risk avoided. mitigate it and obviously transferred. I when I grew up being a mathematician, so we've looked at risk too. And I've learned there's two elements to risk. Number one, it's likelihood. Number two is impact. So what what I do is I look at risks and try to figure that figure that out. So likelihood, and impact are the two key variables that drive all the decisions.

I think the biggest risk is failing to budget for asset protection. When you are an owner of commercial real estate, you know the numbers you know how much it's going to cost you for your your garden or how much it's going to cost you if you're if you're including the heat, how much it's going to cost you and to budget for all of these things to figure out what the cash flow is going to be on on the business and I think you need to budget for asset protection.

J. Darrin Gross:

But if you're willing, I'd like to ask you, Matt Sullivan. What is the biggest risk?

 

Matt Sullivan 

Well, I think the answer is relatively straightforward, because from an investor's perspective, it's a real estate investment. It's an equity investment. And so the risk to the investor is that the value of the underlying real estate decays to the point where they no longer have an interest because their equity interest has been reduced. Now, as you quite rightly say, so that is the risk, how do you mitigate that risk? How do you reduce that risk? How do you remove that risk. So the way the contracts are written, there are protections in there for investors. So, when we value the property, in some cases, we'll build in a little bit of a discount so that if the value of the property doesn't go up very much, or in fact stays the same, there's still a return in there for the investors. But really, the way that we look at the risk for both sides is it is absolutely directly correlated to the value of real estate. And so there are no extraneous risks that I'm aware of, there's no sort of risks that would not be sort of directly related to whether the value of the property goes up or goes down. So that's actually quite easy to quantify. Because we know from an investor's perspective, what the returns are going to be if the property goes up, what they're going to be if the property goes down, and the same for the homeowner, if the property goes up significantly, they're going to have a bigger share of the equity that they're going to be going to be paying. If it goes down, the homeowner actually benefits because they may not have, they may have to pay back far less than they originally received. And the other thing to mention is for our business as a whole, the biggest challenge, which is a bit like a risk, is education is getting people to understand what this Anneli what this animal is, how it's not debt, how it is not too good to be true, how it is a viable financial tool. So I hope I'm not mixing apples and pears there. When I'm talking about sort of, you know, risks and challenges, but I didn't, you know, I, we are seeing far more interest and willingness from homeowners funnily enough to investigate these types of alternative funding options. So, I mean, risk is a word I, I'd like to finish on opportunity, rather than risk however, that, hey, you
