Asset Management Weekly Update, June 7-13, 2020
BY Dave Wilson, Director of Asset Management 15, JUN 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, June 7-13, 2020. You may view activity from the previous weeks by clicking the links below.

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:
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. We examine 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.
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 - June 7-13
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):
*NOTE: Actual rate is not inclusive of any promotions. Individual repayments are dependent on how long your principal is active in a given loan.
**NOTE: The borrower did not disclose the source of repayment proceeds.
Key To Loan Status Column:
Current - loan remained current throughout the term and repaid with full principal (plus interest)
Default - loan was resolved while in default
Workout - a workout plan was put into effect and the loan was resolved under the terms of the workout agreement
REO - GROUNDFLOOR assumed title to the property (either through foreclosure or deed in lieu) and sold the property.
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 7 loans were repaid. 6 of these loans proceeded according to schedule, repaying on time and in full with the contract interest rate. One loan last week was a special situation loan, the details of which are below.
71 Bernard St - Repaid Out Of Default
The borrower defaulted on the loan terms, and our team proceeded with foreclosure. The property went under contract the day of the foreclosure sale. GROUNDFLOOR was not outbid during the foreclosure auction, so we retained ownership of the property. However, since the property was under contract with a buyer the day of the foreclosure sale, GROUNDFLOOR elected to not record our deed, and instead allowed the borrower to close and sell the property.
Special Situations Activity Last Week
Finally, our asset management team moved forward with the following special situation loans last week (see link to each individual loan page for detailed history of updates). As a reminder, all performing loans are monitored for repayment status starting at 120 days prior to maturity.
We have entered into a workout agreement on the following loans:
- 17527 Stoepel St
- 27 Moury Ave SE
