Builders Capital the #1 Private Construction Lender Nationwide Raises $2.3 Billion in New Capital

Builders Capital

Builders Capital set a new company record raising an additional $2.3 billion in new Capital in 2023, positioning them as the #1 private construction lender nationwide. “There is a massive need for private capital in light of the housing supply/demand imbalance and regional banking system challenges,” said Robert Trent, CEO of Builders Capital. “We plan to use the capital to expand our platform and continue to provide necessary and creative financing solutions to our homebuilding customers to support the growth and success of their business.” In addition to the amount of capital available, these traits set Builders Capital apart from other lenders demonstrating why they are the industry leader nationwide: Access to significant building material savings through their revolutionary MOR program. Speed and execution towards closing loans on time. Creative financing structures that allow their customers to operate their business more efficiently. Confidence of closing with thousands of loans funded and over $9B in volume. More spec homes and starts with underwriting based on the absorption of the project versus arbitrary restrictions from government-regulated banks. State-of-the-art technology allowing their borrowers 24-hour access to loan details and draws. Anytime draws so vendors can be paid as often as the borrower would like. An In-House Loan Servicing department that provides seamless support post-closing. Last year, Builders Capital expanded its lending and servicing team with the addition of an East Coast headquarters to help deliver robust lending solutions to more builders across the country and meet customer demand. Housing market inventory is scarce and existing for-sale inventory remains near historic lows. Total housing inventory fell to a record low of 910,100 units in December, down 18% from the prior month and 14.2% from a year ago, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). It was the lowest amount in more than 20 years since the data had been collected.

HomeSphere Revolutionizes Home Product Management With AI-driven My HomeSphere App

HomeSphere

HomeSphere, the foremost platform connecting building product manufacturers to mid-market homebuilders, today launched My HomeSphereTM, an industry-changing mobile app and product suite designed to bring transparency and efficiency to home product management. Unlike any other product available today, the app benefits players along the homebuilding and buying supply chain, with distinct value to builders, manufacturers and homeowners. Visit HomeSphere at the NAHB International Builders’ Show in Booth W4051 in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. My HomeSphere: Transforming Home Product Information The My HomeSphere product suite empowers builders to use their smartphones to capture essential information about products in new homes while on-site, during installation. The data, encompassing appliances, HVAC systems, windows, doors, smart technology and more, syncs seamlessly with HomeSphere’s platform. HomeSphere’s proprietary AI automatically logs model and serial numbers, registers and tracks warranties in a single platform, and creates a comprehensive digital record of the home — with little effort from the builder or homeowner. “HomeSphere is the only company positioned to change data collection for the industry,” said HomeSphere CEO Greg Schwarzer. “We store the largest volume of U.S. home product information through our strong relationships with thousands of homebuilders and building product manufacturers, and we know what’s broken in the supply chain. My HomeSphere is the technology to fix it.” Changing the Landscape of Home Product Management My HomeSphere has the potential to redefine how building products are sourced, tracked and maintained, ushering in a new digital era for the home construction industry. Key Features of My HomeSphere: Creates a first-of-its-kind digital record of a home's products Enhances transparency within home product management Breaks down longstanding supply-chain silos in residential construction Addressing Industry Challenges Before My HomeSphere, builders installed products in homes without knowing how they performed, product manufacturers lacked clarity on product usage, and homeowners were left to fend for themselves, wading through a drawer full of manuals and registration cards. With My HomeSphere: Builders get a precise inventory of products installed in completed homes, simplifying after-sales issue resolution and increasing customer satisfaction. Homeowners gain “at their fingertips” information about the products in their homes so they can capitalize on valuable extended warranty opportunities, typically unclaimed. Building product manufacturers have — for the first time — clarity into where products are being used and by whom, facilitating customer relationships, mitigating risks and managing issues such as product defects or recalls. The Future of Home Product Management In the short term, My HomeSphere streamlines a fragmented supply chain burdened with outdated tracking methods. In the long term, HomeSphere anticipates further technological advancements to create an expansive network connecting the country’s 140 million homeowners with the manufacturers, contractors and installers that keep their homes running. “Each year in the U.S., millions of new homes are built, with an average of 15 branded products per home,” said HomeSphere Executive Chairman Glenn Renner. “No single company has ever captured this product data, yet it represents unprecedented value to homeowners, builders and product manufacturers. Our mission is to change that with a digital record of the U.S. housing stock accessible to millions of homeowners and the entire universe of builders, contractors and manufacturers. The My HomeSphere technology, paired with our experience, uniquely positioned us to execute this industry-changing vision.” About HomeSphere HomeSphere is a leading data platform connecting the residential construction industry. With 25 years of experience, HomeSphere aggregates data on products installed in over 250,000 homes annually, fostering transparency and efficiency throughout the process, from the product manufacturer to its end user, the homeowner. My HomeSphere represents a leap forward in home product management, revolutionizing how information is sourced, tracked and maintained.

Everlodge Gains Momentum in Real Estate Sector as Interest in Avalanche (AVAX) and Cardano (ADA) Wanes

Everlodge

As the crypto market shows signs of retracement from its recent bullish momentum, top crypto coins such as Avalanche (AVAX) and Cardano (ADA) have witnessed a noticeable slowdown in their price trajectories. However, the same cannot be said for Everlodge (ELDG). Following the completion of its successful presale campaign, Everlodge has been drawing increased attention, particularly with its ongoing listing on tier-1 exchanges. This listing has continued to fuel purchasing activities for the cryptocurrency, setting it apart from the declining interest in AVAX and ADA alike. Everlodge (ELDG) Makes Strides in the Real Estate Niche With Growing Enthusiasm Among Investors Everlodge (ELDG) is slowly making a name for itself in the fast-growing multi-trillion-dollar real estate industry. The project stands out by leveraging innovative technology to digitize real-world assets (RWAs) into non-fungible tokens (NFTs). This groundbreaking approach enables potential investors to conveniently and affordably access co-ownership opportunities, with a minimum investment threshold as low as $100. The underlying concept behind Everlodge is to introduce fractional ownership in diverse real estate assets, ranging from vacation homes to hotels and luxurious villas. By doing so, the project disrupts the traditional norms of real estate investment, making it more accessible and flexible for individuals to participate in this lucrative market. Following a successful presale that propelled the ELDG token from $0.01 to $0.029, Everlodge is now well-positioned for even more exponential growth, further supported by its recent listing on Uniswap. With ambitious plans to expand its market presence through additional listings on tier-1 exchanges, Everlodge emerges as one of the top crypto coins for investment, offering long-term profitability. Meanwhile, the team has taken measures to ensure market stability and safeguard investors' interests by committing to lock the team tokens for two years and the liquidity pool for eight years, effectively mitigating potential market volatility. These steps solidify Everlodge's appeal as a promising cryptocurrency worth considering. Beyond its core offering of fractional ownership, Everlodge presents a range of enticing features. These include a dedicated loan platform, a reward club, discounted rental fees on co-owned properties, trade discounts, a marketplace, and a launchpad for aspiring property developers. These additional features further underscore the overall value proposition of Everlodge, making it an attractive choice for investors seeking exposure to the real estate market in a novel yet dynamic way. Avalanche (AVAX) Faces Uncertain Price Outlook as Bullish Momentum Depreciates After recently trading above a weekly high of $43, Avalanche (AVAX) price has made a sharp turn towards the downside. Notably, AVAX token has lost almost all its weekly gains as it makes its way back to the weekly entry point around $38. Currently trading above $39, with a weekly price range of $38.7 to $39.5, the Avalanche token has managed to retain some positivity, with a modest increase of just over 1.50% over the past week. In contrast, earlier in the week, the AVAX token surged by as much as 21%, soaring from $35.8 to $43.0. However, given the recent decline in AVAX token price, it remains uncertain whether the token can maintain stability around its initial weekly entry point or if the ongoing dip will lead to further declines in the near future. Cardano (ADA) Faces Uncertainties As Price Fluctuation Looms Cardano (ADA) is also experiencing price fluctuations, although it has not suffered significant losses. The weekly price chart for ADA still shows a nearly 10% increase. However, when compared to its peak price of $0.61, which represented a gain of over 15% at the time, it is evident that ADA is struggling to maintain stability. Currently trading above the $0.58 level, with a weekly price range of $0.53 to $0.59, the ADA price demonstrates relative stability while continuing on a reversal trend. Looking ahead, Everlodge presents more promising prospects compared to several other top crypto coins as it prepares to list on additional top-tier exchanges. This not only provides potential investors with an edge against market fluctuations but also positions Everlodge in a more lucrative landscape compared to tokens like AVAX and ADA. For more information about Everlodge (ELDG) please visit their website. Everlodge provides you with a seamless approach to fractional investing in vacation rentals, eliminating the complexities associated with traditional real estate investment. Our innovative platform revolutionizes the way people invest in second homes. Disclaimer: Digital currencies may be unregulated in your jurisdiction.

Price Rally for Cardano (ADA) and Uniswap (UNI) Signals the Start of Alt Season, Everlodge (ELDG) Prepares for Tier-1 Listing

Everlodge

Several tokens in the crypto market are experiencing bullish sentiments, which experts believe could be the start of the alt season. Some of these tokens on a rally include Cardano (ADA) and Uniswap (UNI). Meanwhile, following the end of the Everlodge (ELDG) presale, the token has been listed on Uniswap and looking forward to listing on other tier-1 exchanges. Its surging momentum has put it on the investor's list of top cryptos to invest in 2024. Everlodge (ELDG) Continues its High Sales Despite Conclusion of its Presale Phase Everlodge (ELDG) has continued to see a significant uptrend in the number of investors buying the token on Uniswap. As a result, the Everlodge project is looking to expand its reach by listing on other mainstream tier-1 exchanges in the coming months. Meanwhile, the increased buying by investors is tied to ELDG's massive potential for growth. Having already generated up to 190% ROI for early investors, ELDG is on course to oversee over 350% growth within the year. This makes ELDG one of the top cryptos to invest in 2024. For context, Everlodge is a platform that's looking to positively change the way individuals invest in real estate assets by making them affordable, secure, and profitable. To achieve this, Everlodge has created fractionalized NFTs, which are backed by multimillion-dollar real-world property assets from across the globe. As such, investors who buy these cheap fractionalized NFTs will co-own parts of luxury properties and benefit from the revenue that the properties will generate. With as little as $100, investors can purchase the NFTs that represent these properties. With this investment model, individuals will not need exponential capital before they can invest in real estate. As the value of these properties increases so will the NFT values increase. Meanwhile, the ELDG native token of the Everlodge ecosystem has been making waves in the market, having just concluded its presale phase. With its massive growth potential, investors are buying more ELDG to position for the potential price gains coming soon. At the price of only $0.022, ELDG represents one of the top cryptos to buy now for massive gains in 2024. Positive Price Trajectory for Cardano (ADA) Despite Dwindling Trading Volume Cardano (ADA) is on another round of bullish rallies, having witnessed a retracement in January. While the token has been on a rally in the past week, the Cardano trading volume has been on a negative growth in the same timeframe. For context, the price data from CoinMarketCap shows that Cardano has gained up to 10% within the last week. Meanwhile, the trading volume has been on a 30% decline on a day-to-day average since last week. While the declining market activity is a factor that might impede the growth of Cardano, experts believe the bullish momentum of the token will persist for the time being. As such, experts are predicting a 50% ROI from Cardano tokens before the end of Q2 of 2024. Will Uniswap's (UNI) Current Bullish Sentiment Propel it Above the Resistance Level? The price value of Uniswap (UNI) has been on a significant uptrend trajectory since the start of February. According to the market stats, Uniswap has gained over 16% in price value within the last week. This puts the token on the verge of matching its year-to-date price peak of $7.8, which it attained on December 29th, 2023. Meanwhile, the Uniswap trading volume has been on a decline in the past 7 days, thereby arousing fears of a potential bear trend for the token. Nonetheless, experts believe it is only a matter of time before the Uniswap token surpasses the $8 resistance level. For more information about Everlodge (ELDG) please visit their website.

California Couple Loses Home Due to Blatant Bookkeeping Error by Specialized Loan Servicing, LLC

Law Office of Lorden and Reed

In a distressing incident highlighting the critical impact of administrative errors in mortgage servicing, a now-separated couple from Palmdale, California, has filed a multi-count lawsuit against Specialized Loan Servicing, LLC (SLS). The lawsuit, filed in California State Court, alleges breach of contract, theft, and several other counts, accusing SLS of negligence as the mortgage servicer added a quarter of a million dollars to the couple’s mortgage – leading to their financial and personal ruin. The couple is represented by the Law Office of Lorden and Reed. Michael L. Russell and Renita Y. Russell, the plaintiffs in this case, claim that SLS's incompetence and negligent bookkeeping forced them into bankruptcy and later to a short sale of their home. This resulted in a significant loss of equity, estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and severe emotional distress, which contributed to the dissolution of their over 20-year marriage. The Russells' story began in 2004 when they purchased a four-bedroom home in Palmdale. SLS took over the servicing of their loan in 2014. Following a loan modification in 2015, SLS erroneously added over a quarter of a million dollars to the loan balance. By 2018, SLS claimed the Russells were in default by $69,332, and by early 2019, the indebtedness purportedly reached a staggering $946,239. Despite their efforts, including filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and making consistent payments towards their mortgage, the couple's attempts to resolve the issue through legal counsel and requests for an accurate accounting from SLS were fruitless. The inflated loan balance led to a forced short sale in April 2022 to avoid foreclosure. A year later, SLS admitted they were wrong but refused to accept responsibility for their egregious actions. The consequences of SLS's actions have been devastating for the Russells. They lost approximately $300,000 in home equity and faced excessive housing costs, moving and storage expenses, attorney fees, and litigation costs. Moreover, they have endured severe mental and emotional distress, resulting in the breakdown of their marriage, significant damage to their credit, and the loss of their home. SLS, in their capacity as the mortgage servicer, was acting on behalf of Deutsche Bank National Trust Company. Last year, Rithm Capital Corp. announced it would acquire Computershare Mortgage Services Inc. and certain affiliated companies including Specialized Loan Servicing LLC. The lawsuit includes counts of breach of contract, negligence, negligent misrepresentation, intentional misrepresentation, unfair business practices, unfair debt collection, theft, and other counts. The Russells seeks restitution of all monies paid to SLS in excess of the actual amount owed, compensatory damages, and punitive damages. The Russells wish to hold SLS accountable for the irreparable harm caused by their alleged negligence and to warn others of the potential risks involved in mortgage servicing errors.
