  • The Hamptons is a challenging market for most developers – difficult to source houses, obtain required permits, access materials and subcontractors, and complete renovations in an efficient and timely manner
  • High quality labor is hard to find due to the lack of affordable housing in the community
  • Most builders in the area are small, lack experience and capital, and are unable to provide quality design and construction
  • Access and procurement of high quality building materials for this market segment are difficult to find
  • The new tax regulations may significantly impact valuations in this market
  • Most players in the Hamptons are unable to navigate local laws and building regulations (which often present a moving target) to determine the potential renovation opportunity for an outdated house
  • New inventory continues to decline
  • There is little or no supply to support the high buyer demand for houses in the $3-8 million price range

  • Acquire homes in the Hamptons at favorable prices for cash, rapidly and professionally renovate or tear-down and rebuild, and sell – may also opportunistically build new homes on raw land
  • Expected fix/flip hold period: 12 to 14 months
  • Prospective sellers of off-market value properties have already been identified
  • Preemptive action approach with all due diligence completed, contracts ready and all-cash non-contingent offers.
  • Through value engineering and relationships, management expects to procure high quality materials at a significant discount
  • Experts in determining property density – access to land use experts who can prepare property specific buildability analysis within days (others often require 2-3 months)
  • Long-standing relationships within each of the municipalities, town supervisors, building departments, preservation groups, and key political constituents – should result in sm ooth permit processes
  • Having built over 300 homes in the Hamptons, management’s access to labor is unparalleled – significant loyalty among vendors and trades
  • Impeccable reputation for high quality homes completed on time – trades get paid on time (highly unique in this fragmented business)
  • Value engineering and the highest level of materials should provide homes at incomparable quality level at this price point
