In this episode, We discussed: Why Neal did not have entrepreneurial ideas when he was younger and taking a risk in creating businesses as he got older, Catching the real estate investing bug, How Neal uses technology and data to 10x his real estate investments; Answering the question “What are the best cities in America to invest in and what are the best neighborhoods in those cities?; Factors that make a real estate market good to invest in – what makes them the best cities to invest in real estate; Leveraging virtual assistants to 10X business;How this black swan event (COVID19) is more transformative than world war 2; How Neal is investing in the time of COVID19.
While COVID-19 is a total black swan event and it is hard to predict its effects, it could be a blessing in disguise for multifamily. Neal Bawa joins us again on the show today, and this time to give us his data-driven insights into the impacts of coronavirus on real estate.
Join Sterling Chapman and Neal Bawa as they talk about disruptive trends in real estate. Neal is the CEO and founder of Grocapitus Investments, a commercial real estate company. He discusses two trends – the future of hybrid work and how it changes real estate; and how tokenization makes real estate into stock.
Data obsessed, Neal Bawa, successfully created the super value add strategy to combine data and analytics with current trends to make the most informed future investing decisions. Today, Neal is talking about why real estate is the most inefficient asset, what he believes the future of real estate investing should be, and how Covid is altering current rent prices.
Tyler and Neal discussed how to optimize your company’s processes to manage a limitless number of real estate investing projects. They also want in-depth on the trend of tokenization, the process of turning real estate into stock.
Cap rates on most real estate asset classes have dropped 40% over the past five years. This has made cash flow very hard to achieve. Ground up construction, on the other hand, has much higher cap rates. The key is mitigating risk by being in the right markets with the right assets. Today’s guest, Neal Bawa, the Mad Scientist of Multifamily, has been doing ground up construction in smaller markets in several different asset classes in order to generate attractive returns for investors.
Prepare yourself for a fascinating conversation between Brian Hamrick and Neal Bawa as they take us through several disruptive trends that are going to change the way people live and invest. They’ll be discussing Hybrid Work and how they’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg in people working from home and companies allowing them to do so.
Multi-family rentals have increased by 2% annually in the previous three decades. During the following ten years, they had a 3% growth. Their growth rate grew by 12% in the last year, six times more than the 30-year average. Given these figures, multi-family occupancy should be declining; yet, last month had the highest occupancy in multi-family history, with 97.3% of all units filled. We are now seeing the highest rent growth and occupancy rates in history.
“I invested in Grocapitus’ project because I liked their data driven approach to analysis and conservative underwriting. So far results have been delightful as the project has outperformed the projections and continues to perform well even during the coronavirus crisis. I also appreciate the fact that Grocapitus is easily available and they make it a point to communicate personally to address any questions I might have.”

“I’ve invested in 6 of Neal’s projects. As I write this, we just had the first successful exit: the Windward Forest Multifamily project, where we earned >20% IRR.
Neal is extremely agile. Until COVID hit us, his projects were mostly multifamily deals (each with some value-add strategy that should increase the NOI). Since then, he realized that there may be higher risk in such deals due to tenants’ unemployment, inability to pay rent, and eviction restrictions. So his last few projects are construction projects that will hopefully get completed after the pandemic is over.
Still, I am very impressed by the multifamily projects performance: the occupancy levels have not gone down, and rent collection is very high, given the circumstances. I personally like the multifamily projects more, as they offer dividends from the rent income, and it’s easier to predict their performance. Anyways, I trust Neal’s numbers, so I have invested in his recent construction projects, too. Keep them coming, Neal!”

Grocapitus is a breath of fresh air. They do things differently and way better than their competitors. Thank you Neal for being an amazing leader to your team! I couldn’t be happier with the results so far. Looking forward to investing more in the future.”

“I had met Neal at a real estate investor meetup a few years back. Neal was very positive about investing in multifamily. <span class=”testimonial-highlight”>He does a lot of research using data analytics on markets, identifying growth areas, finding good neighborhoods</span> and shares the data and his findings with interested people and clients. His presentations are filled with a lot of info about the market, the property, the financials the expected returns, and his team patiently answers questions.
<span class=”testimonial-highlight”>One of our investments with Neal had an exit with better than projected returns (during uncertain times with the pandemic)!!</span>”

As a Limited Partner to invest in a syndication, for me, trust is a big factor. With Neal’s vast experience in multifamily construction, data-driven approach, and creative ways in solving problems as well as straightforwardness helped in creating the trust. I look forward to working with Neal on future opportunities.”

“I’ve been extremely happy about the Park Canyon project. Neal, Anna and the Grocapitus team were truly professional and diligent during the entire time. They stayed on top of everything, never missed one single monthly / quarterly update (which is really amazing!). They went extra miles to ensure that the investors get the best possible return. For example, before selling the project, they even redesigned the Offering Memorandum pages by the broker to make it look more attractive to potential buyers.
The team also has the rare ability to identify unique, unusual opportunities for further improvements. Park Canyon by itself was already a great value-add project, but they were able to see the unique opportunity to rebuild the Phoenix building (on the site of a previously burnt down building) and the tremendous value it could bring. This move allowed the project to deliver an outsized return that greatly exceeded my expectations for a value-add.
I consider myself very lucky to be in this project. Big thank you to Neal, Anna and the Grocapitus team!”
