Asset Management Weekly Update, May 17-23, 2020

As the financial and real estate markets continue to experience upheaval due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that some GROUNDFLOOR investors may become more concerned than usual with the status of their investments.

We recently published an extensive stress test analysis of our entire outstanding portfolio to understand what potential effects a coronavirus-related recession could have on our investors’ portfolios. While this analysis is useful to help inform our customers about how GROUNDFLOOR investments could respond to changing market conditions, we also feel it is important to share how our loans are actually performing in real time.

To that end, as part of our continued efforts to be highly accountable to our investors and provide ongoing transparency, we are pleased to begin publishing weekly updates of loan repayments and asset management activities. This latest installment looks at activity from last week, May 17-23. You may view activity from the previous week, May 10-16, by clicking here

Principal and Interest Repaid Over The Past Four Weeks

First, let's take a look at the total principal and interest repayments disbursed to investors over the past four weeks:

Total Principal and Interest Repaid, 5.17-23

Aggregated Performance Metrics

Next, let's take a deeper dive into repayment activity over the past weeks to get a better picture of how our recently repaid loans have been performing. This table presents a comparison of the metrics of loans repaid within the last four weeks, loans repaid since the start of Q2 (which also coincides with the general onset of economic impacts in the U.S. of the COVID-19 pandemic), and loans repaid year to date. 

Aggregated Performance Metrics, 5.17-23

It’s important to underscore that this table showcases the performance of loans that were repaid during the delineated periods, not the performance of loans originated during these timeframes.

Last Week's Repayments (May 17-23, 2020)

This table presents loans that were repaid within the previous week (Sunday-Saturday) with details on the status, actual vs. expected term, actual vs. expected rate, and the exit valuation (sales price or appraised value at time of refinancing):

Special Situations Repaid Last Week

Next, we provide a weekly overview of special situation loans we resolved in the prior week.

Last week, a total of 10 loans were repaid. Five of these loans proceeded according to schedule, repaying on time and in full with the contract interest rate. Four loans last week were special situation loans, the details of which are below.

1164 Wilmington Ave SW - Repaid Under Workout Agreement

A workout agreement was arranged for this loan, which was under contract but had not yet sold upon reaching maturity. As part of the workout agreement, no default interest or penalties were charged to the borrower.

1388 Epworth St SW - Repaid Under Workout Agreement 

A workout agreement was arranged for this loan, which was under contract but had not yet sold upon reaching maturity. As part of the workout agreement, no default interest or penalties were charged to the borrower.

Woodbriar Circle #2 - Second LRO in Series Repaid 

This is a special purpose Buy-Renovate-Rent-Refinance (BRRR) loan with a custom structure for a preferred GROUNDFLOOR borrower. Per the Promissory Note for this project, the borrower was granted a 6-month initial term, plus three separate 6-month extension options, for a total possible term of 24 months. Each 6-month term is structured as a separate LRO -- upon completion of the 6-month term, investors have the option to withdraw their earnings or reinvest in the next LRO in the series. Please refer to our BRRR blog post for more information and background on the structure of this loan.

This repaid LRO represents the second 6-month LRO in the series. This LRO repaid on time -- it is not a workout. The borrower has one more 6-month LRO extension per the loan terms.

756 Terry St (#1 for Initial Financing and #2 for First Draw) - Repaid Under Workout Agreement

A workout agreement was arranged for this loan, which was under contract but had not yet sold upon reaching maturity. As part of the workout agreement, no default interest or penalties were charged to the borrower.

26 England Ave - Repaid From Default

Our team had previously granted an extension to this borrower, but the loan defaulted because the borrower could not finish the project by the extension deadline. We proceeded with foreclosure and the borrower repaid a few days before the foreclosure sale date.

Special Situations Activity Last Week

Finally, each week we provide an update of our asset management team's work on outstanding special situation loans. As a reminder, all loans are proactively monitored throughout their lifecycle, and performing loans are monitored for repayment status starting at 120 days prior to maturity. Loans can enter special situation handling upon workout or default.

The team moved forward with the following special situation loans last week.

Loan Activity:

We have entered into a workout agreement on the following loans:

We commenced foreclosure actions on the following loans:

Real Estate Owned (REO) Activity:

We took possession of the following new property:

We hope the above discussion gives you a snapshot of the work our team does each week to manage our loan portfolio and move forward on repayments. We publish this information towards the beginning of each week to help you get a clearer understanding of how our loans are performing and what we are doing to safeguard your investments.
