Asset Management Weekly Update, June 28 - July 4, 2020

BY Dave Wilson, Director of Asset Management 07, JUL 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 28 - July 4, 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. 

Aggregated Performance Metrics 6.28-7.4

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.

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 19 loans were repaid. 14 of these loans proceeded according to schedule, repaying on time and in full with the contract interest rate. 5 loans last week were special situation loans, the details of which are below.

723 Reed Ave - Repaid Out Of Default

The borrower experienced COVID-related delays in selling the house. As the loan was not repaid at maturity, it was in default, but the borrower was granted a concession and did not pay default interest.

1162 Smith St SW - Repaid Out Of Default

The borrower did not complete the renovation by the maturity date. A forbearance agreement was entered into granting the borrower a six month extension, and the loan was paid off pursuant to the terms of the forbearance agreement.

343, 341 & 335 Rogers St - Repaid Out Of Default

The loan was placed in default due to a lien being placed on the property. Foreclosure was commenced, but the borrower repaid the loan prior to the foreclosure sale.

18066 Roselawn St - Repaid Out Of Default

The borrower did not complete the renovation by the maturity date. A forbearance agreement was entered into granting the borrower a 90-day extension; however, the loan was paid off after the expiration of the forbearance agreement, so the borrower incurred default interest charges.

4117 Ruby Dr E - Repaid Out Of Default

The property experienced delays in selling. The property was ultimately sold after the maturity date.
