Asset Management Weekly Update, November 22-28, 2020

BYJoey Wilson 30, NOV 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, November 22-28, 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, 11.22-28
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 - November 22-28

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 8 loans repaid. 5 of these loans proceeded according to schedule, repaying on time and in full with the contract interest rate. 3 loans last week were special situation loans, the details of which are below. 

111 Wilson St - Repaid Out Of Default

The loan was in maturity default because the borrower failed to repay the loan by maturity. The project was completed and listed on the market before the maturity date. The property was under contract with an expected closing date of September 30th, 2020, but the closing date was extended and the seller was waiting on a clear to close from the buyer’s lender. The property did eventually close and GROUNDFLOOR was paid off.

10522 Faye Way - Repaid Via Workout Agreement

The loan was in maturity default because the borrower failed to repay the loan by maturity. The project was completed and listed on the market before the maturity date. The property was under contract with an expected closing date of September 30th, 2020, but the closing was delayed with a new closing date for November 20th, 2020. The property did eventually close on November 20th, 2020 and GROUNDFLOOR was paid off.

156 Fairfield Pl NW - Repaid Via Settlement

This was a "split loan," meaning the loan was divided into a first lien position (two loans) and a second lien position (one loan). The project was in default because the borrower failed to repay by maturity. The borrower planned to refinance the loan, but refinanced it below the estimated ARV. Additionally, there were several operational issues with the property. GROUNDFLOOR determined the best course of action to protect investors' interests in this case was to settle with the borrower rather than proceed with a drawn-out and costly foreclosure process. 

As this was a split loan, investors in first lien positions received full principal recovery plus an interest rate of 5.48%, while second lien holders received full principal recovery. For more information on split loans and how we treat repayments, please refer to our blog post.
