What We Do - Builders
We are a licensed corporate real estate broker (CA DRE License # 01830062). SALT partners with the private sector to build affordable homes while earning a reasonable return on investment. As a nonprofit agency advising for-profit ventures, we have a unique position in the homebuilding industry.
Seven Points of Entry
We provide a broad menu of support to builders, investors and developers. Depending on the project, our support takes the form of one or more of the following components — our seven points of entry into real estate development:
We assist homebuilders to conceptualize projects that match the community's needs, meet regulatory requirements, and are likely to be welcomed locally while earning a sufficient return on investment.
We advise how to best take control of a site, or facilitate its acquisition; and how our unique position as a nonprofit can ease a site's regulations or gain desirable tax advantages.
We help homebuilders navigate their way through the very complex, sometimes hostile, and always highly-regulated environment to the goal of getting their projects built.
In 26 years we have established the contacts to facilitate the entire process of obtaining private funds and available public-sector monies and matching them to a homebuilder¹s project.
Our extensive experience in structuring take-out financing to dovetail with construction financing eases the entire process and puts more profit into homebuilders' coffers.
As a licensed California corporate real estate broker, we match homebuyers with homes for sale and find quality tenants for rental housing. We specialize in matching income-eligible applicants to affordable housing.
Post Occupancy Asset Holding
We manage the legal entity, such as a partnership or LLC, that remains in a completed transaction. We also manage the investment instruments of any subordinate financing in both for-sale and rental housing.
