Boutique Group Homes

by Burn$ Funding

Developing the Boutique Group Home Space

Burn$ Funding has entered the Boutique Group Home vertical with state-of-the-art group home facilities in Arizona and California.

We have assembled a team of seasoned experts in the Group Home space, and are taking advantage of new ADA regulations that make it possible to open group homes in areas where the need is the greatest today (and increasing daily with the aging population).

We acquire properties and refurbish them to meet all Group Home regulations and guidelines, while incorporating additional upgrades to provide residents with the peaceful surroundings they deserve in their later years.

Funding on steroids

“What Burn$ Funding is doing is highly disruptive to an industry that was in need of this. For anyone that needs between $100,000 and $500,000, Burn$ Funding is a great place to start.”

Sue Malone

President, Strategies for Small Business

“Burn$ Funding enabled us to secure $200,000 in funding, which was enough to begin the manufacturing process for our flagship product. Before Burns Funding came along, we were relegated to approaching traditional banks, who had no interest in loaning us money.”

Richard Otto

"Burn$ Funding did an incredible job for me. They fixed my credit, did, provided a bridging loan to pay down my current balance and then did a rapid re-score. This all happened in the space of a week. I received $78k shortly afterwards to put into my business."

Jonathan Truebold

"I couldn't believe how much finance Burn$ Funding was able to raise for me. You have to try them and see for yourself."

William Robertson

"I've tried various funding sources over the years. Hands down, Burn$ Funding has better products and cheaper rates than them all. I don't know how they do it but it's incredible."

Investor Case Study

The doctor knew early on that he wanted to pursue a career in medicine. So after earning his undergraduate degree in the mid-1990s from a Southern California university, he decided to go to medical school and pursue his ambitions. 

Initially, all went as planned. The doctor got his degree and established his residency in West Texas. He was familiar with that part of the country having bounced around in his childhood, living in small towns in Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico. By 2006, he had settled into a career as an emergency room physician and worked in multiple hospital groups in several cities in Arizona and Texas to maximize his earning potential, racking up his airmiles benefits and getting thousands of miles of windshield time in the process.  He was making enough money to service his medical school debt as well as dabble in commercial real estate, buying some duplexes in Central Texas then single-family homes and larger multifamily properties in Arizona. 

Then came the financial hits. First, there was an expensive divorce, then the real estate market took a dive.

The doctor rededicated himself to creating financial security. His goal was to create enough passive income so that one day he could step away from the profession and enjoy the fruits of his labor. But such goals were easier set, then accomplished, as he found out. The doctor, again, invested in real estate. But as his capital got tied up, he got squeezed. The debts mounted. He had a great salary and some good investments, but he wasn’t able to make others. His credit took a hit.

He turned to Burn$ Funding.

“Not only did we help him clean up his credit, but we also used our network to identify some powerful new investments that would draw him closer to his goals,” said Peter J. Burns III, the founder of Burns Funding and a new entity called Luxury Group Homes. “Today, the doctor is positioned to benefit from not only the growing trend toward group homes for the elderly, but the more lucrative niche of luxury group homes. He has already participated in our first mansion in the Phoenix area and the house is being retrofitted as a group home for the elderly.”

Retroactive Tax Savings

When Is Cost Segregation A Smart Business Strategy?

Cost segregation is all about tax benefits, and the net present value of the cash generated by those tax benefits. In determining whether it makes sense to conduct a cost segregation study, there are several items to consider:  

  • The Property: Any property considered commercial, including residential used for a commercial use (eg. Group Homes or Assisted-Living Residences).  
  • Property Value: The tax basis (purchase price minus underlying raw land plus capitalized improvements) should be at least $750,000.  
  • Property Age: Does not matter. Only the length of time owned by current owner maybe a concern.  
  • Other Eligibility Requirements: If the property was owned by the current owner prior to January 1,1987, it is ineligible for cost segregation.
  • Tax status of Property Owner(s): In order for cost segregation to be beneficial to the property owner(s), they must be able to utilize the tax benefits.
    • Passive Investors: May be subject to passive loss limitations. If the cost segregation study increases their passive losses, they may not be able to realize this tax benefit until they sell their share of that property.  However if a passive investor has other investments that generate passive gains, the passive losses from the cost segregation study can be used as an offset to those gains.
    • Active Investor: If the owner is an active real estate professional, or owns the real estate and spends all of their time managing and running the real estate (there are 2 tests to determine status as a “real estate professional”) then all gains and losses are considered active.  This would include an owner/operator of a Group Home or Assisted Living facility, or an owner with multiple Group Homes that makes a business of keeping these homes operational.

Peter J. Burns III is a serial entrepreneur who specializes in the establishment and operation of niche market replicable business enterprises. He is an innovative businessman who creates and implements many new concepts from the ground up. In his over four decades of being in business as an entrepreneur, he has started, operated, sold, and/or expanded over 150 companies.

 

Peter’s passion for entrepreneurship and thirst for launching and growing businesses stemmed from an early age (at age 6, he retrieved golf balls at the Biltmore Country Club that were hit into water hazards, and sold them back to the golfers – with a glass of lemonade.). After serving in the U.S. Army and being appointed to the United States Military Academy at West Point, Burns was given a four-year Army ROTC scholarship to the University of Virginia. As a freshman at UVa, Burns enrolled in an Entrepreneurship course typically reserved for seniors, by convincing his teacher and peers to allow him a seat in the class. In this course, Peter and the rest of the students were given an assignment to write a business plan for a real business. “My plan focused on importing mopeds to the U.S. from Europe and renting them to tourists at U.S. resorts,” Burns explained.  After the class ended, Burns implemented this plan and went on to start the first moped rental business in the U.S., making $55,000 in just 10 weeks.

Burns even went on to play a pivotal role in starting the country’s first College of Entrepreneurship at Grand Canyon University. “I think that entrepreneurship programs and degrees should be commonly found at universities because small businesses, and small business owners, are the backbone of our country and our economy.”

Since his college years, his creation of the moped rental business as well as dozens of other profitable businesses, serial entrepreneurship and the establishment of unique businesses has been a major part of Burn’s life. 

 Some of the businesses and operations Burns has spearheaded over the years include:

  • Started the first moped U.S. rental business, eventually expanded to 100 locations (Nantucket Moped 1977) 
  • First one to integrate beach stores with rental business and created a large chain (Island Beach Company 1980) 
  • One of founding members of the largest international network of entrepreneurs (YEO 1987) 
  • Created the first “Dolphin Tour” business using jet boats on guided tours through wild dolphin habitats (Water Tours 1995) 
  • Established the first franchised rental chain of bicycle, mopeds, Harley-Davidsons, exotic cars, water sports (Fun Rentals 1996) 
  • Created the first integrated media rich commercial email marketing business (Cybertising  2000) 
  • Invented the “Insert-A-Zine” niche-publishing concept (NightLife Magazine! 2001) 
  • Started the first “open source entrepreneurship”  organization in U.S. (Club Entrepreneur 2006) 
  • Started the first independent accredited College of Entrepreneurship in U.S. (GCU CoE 2007) 
  • Created the template to open CoEs through the development of own curriculum and business process Patent Pending (IfE 2007) 
  • Pioneered the expanded market for Cost Segregation Studies, introducing a Patent Pending for unique applications (CSS 2008) Expanded to the massive commercialization of cost segregation (HL Cost Seg 2016)
  • Established the first self-contained entrepreneurship center in U.S. (eFactory/Club E Office 2009) 
  • Co-founded the first financing organization for “Creatives” (singers, film producers, artists) (FundingWagon.com, 2013)

Darren comes to us with a strong financial and sales background coupled with unmatched creativity, resourcefulness and tenacity to spot, scout and capitalize novel trends thus synthesizing and synchronizing our teams efforts in a true spirit of cooperation and entrepreneurship. An MBA in International business and entrepreneurship from Cal Polytechnic University, Darren got started in the import/export business giving him vast cultural experience and flexibility in business. Known as the “Option Arm King” during the Real Estate bubble, he capitalized the market tapping liquidity for many investors to follow their dreams.

Subsequent to the historical 2008 Real Estate market collapse and watching many rising entrepreneurs suddenly lose their financial dreams, Darren quickly adapted to the business finance world and approached it from all angles figuring out loopholes and having the resourcefulness and ingenuity to combine “missing pieces from various puzzles” to again help others fund their business and personal dreams.

Now, in our current dynamic yet unpredictable economy, Darren enjoys a global perspective

synchronizing, combining and capturing equity from several untapped niches in commercial real estate, investment & finance, and current market trends. Last year, he discovered the Senior Living/assisted living market realized an important fact: According to the AARP, 10,000 baby boomers are turning 65 every single day, and this is expected to continue into the 2030s. Inspired to capitalize on this market, Darren recently spent 6 months internship to fully learn the business and soon became key advisor for a private wealth management firm, and ultimately found how do it better, with less fat and much more profit. In fact, he brings William Young, the “Michael Burns” of Lions Gate equivalent in our industry to the table to ensure this. Darren firmly believes we are presently exactly where the commercial cannabis industry was 4 short years ago in California; about to be regulated and dominated and thus taken over by Corporate America.

We are proud to have him spearhead and coordinate, and secure our clients assets and equity utilization while helping monetize them into Senior Living acquisition in the western regional states. Seniors are now getting the luxury housing and lifestyle appreciated in one’s golden years, while having our business colleagues, medical doctors, real estate owners, and high net worth individuals catapult their personal and business equity holdings into royal monthly cash streams unheard of prior and permanently solidifying our position in this ripe market that is positioned to explode now and be saturated within a few short years.

Read More About Holt...

Holt Hackney is a communications specialist with more than 30 years of experience as a journalist and public relations professional.

In the 1980s, Hackney began a career in journalism, rising from an editor at a small-town weekly newspaper to a staff writer at a national business magazine in New York City. At Financial World, Hackney crafted stories about billion-dollar corporations. This experience helped him understand the needs of business journalists as well as analysts, which he relied on as sources for his stories.

In the early 1990s, Hackney combined his journalism skills with his interest in public relations and assisted the National Golf Foundation in disseminating its messages in a highly politicized business environment.

Several years later, Hackney accepted a managing editor role for LRP Publications, a legal publisher, where he oversaw four publications and their respective editors as well as assisted the company’s marketing lead in her efforts to market the publications to potential subscribers.

In 1998, Hackney further put his communication skills to work in the technology field. First, he joined Stratfor/Infraworks as the Director of Communications, where he helped the company secure coverage in Investors’ Business Daily, InfoWorld and Time Magazine.

Hackney, then applied his skills at CyBerCorp, an electronic stock trading company. Without benefit of a public relations firm or relevant advertising budget, he achieved editorial hits in Forbes, Fortune, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, USA Today, Investors’ Business Daily, Texas Monthly, The Industry Standard, CNNfn, MSN Investor, PC World, Austin Business Journal and Austin American Statesman and others. He also facilitated interviews for the CEO on CNBC, CNN Moneyline, CNN Digital Jam, FoxNews’ Cavuto Report and all four network affiliates in Austin. Fifteen months after Hackney joined CyBerCorp, the company was purchased by Charles Schwab for $500 million.

Hackney’s next step was to assist Hewlett Packard, where he served as Director of Communications for the company’s enterprise software subsidiary, Austin-based Dazel. Hackney worked with the Dazel marketing team as well as HP’s corporate public relations team in California to extend Dazel’s messages through the media and analysts. His work helped secure coverage in all the relevant technology publications as well as coordinating interviews for Dazel executives with the Wall Street Journal, Forbes and Businessweek. In addition, Hackney took over a flagging analyst relations effort and brought Dazel back into the good graces of outfits, such as Gartner, IDC, Meta Group and Hurwitz.

Hackney’s success has been attributable to a unique qualification in the public relations community — experience as a national business journalist. In addition to being a staff writer at Financial World, Hackney has written for Florida Trend (the Florida equivalent to Texas Monthly), Forbes’ Executive Edge and Treasury and Risk Management Magazine. This experience has influenced his ability to understand the needs of the journalist, gain immediate respect from the journalist and utilize existing contacts in the journalism world.

On a personal note, Hackney is a Florida native, who received a degree in journalism from the University of Florida.
