Black... Land... Matters... Is a Real Estate Investment Cooperative.
It’s about sustainable stewardship practices of land in partnership with marginalized communities.
Our homes, businesses and green spaces are all under assault. So-called modern progress has depended on exploiting the land, people and resources as if they had no end.
We believe African Diasporic heritage-based communities must come together to pool resources and share our experiences as we reclaim our sacred connection with the Earth.
This is a space to learn, think extensively, rigorously, and personally about the best ways to keep our communities on the land and keep it alive and green for ensuing generations.
To compliment this virtual "think-tank", we've taken the obvious next step of tangible solution. We welcome you to join our Black Land Matters Real Estate Investment Cooperative (BLM-REIC) family by becoming a member for just $50/year. For details click here.
• Black Land Matters REIC NOW ACCEPTING membership
The Black Land Matters Real Estate Investment Cooperative invites you to join today! An annual membership of $50 grants you a voting share and access to exclusive cooperative land project listings we have available for participation. To learn more and to join click here.
• Black Land Matters & Duende natural's Egypt on the Potomac Field Trip May 7, 2016
The Egypt on the Potomac Field Trip is a guided journey through Washington, DC that uncovers secrets hidden in plain sight. Did you know there is information and wisdom embedded throughout the visual make up of the city: in federal building architecture, street alignment, symbols on streets and buildings, and numerical patterns found throughout all of these elements, among others?
By examining this embedded information, and exploring aspects of African mythology, African American, American, and Washington DC history, the Field Trip illuminates the ancient Egyptian influence on the founding fathers of the United States of America, as well as their acknowledgment of the Nile Valley origins of civilization.
The three-hour Field Trip, which is sponsored by IKG Cultural Resource Center and was created by author and cultural historian Anthony T. Browder, consists of video segments and site visits (both on and off the bus). A facilitator guides participants to understand the story of DC’s history that is hidden in plain sight. Educational resources such as DVDs, books, and posters are available for purchase for further study both before and after the Field Trip. See more details.
WHAT YOU WILL SEE
Nile Valley culture lives in the monuments of the District of Columbia. You will see evidence of ancient Egyptian architecture, symbolism and philosophy that has been embedded in various monuments throughout the city …literally hidden in plain sight. Join us by registering for this trip today! Limited seats available!

There is an alternative approach, though you'll need to do your home work.
What you might can do is this:
1. Buy majority of a Pink Sheet shell
2. Form a REIT Delaware Trust Inc.
3. Merge the two companies on share exchange through a reverse merger or triangle merger and redomicile the corp to Delaware.
4. Upgrade the shell to OTC Pink (this is not SEC reporting and lower costs for now about $5,000 year and reports to edgar).
Begin acquiring properties by exchanging Membership interests in an LLC that coverts to common stock of the REIT after one year. (upreit structure)
Build the company up, it will trade over the counter for a few years while you build up the shareholder equity and then PCOAB audit and move to SEC reporting.
Once you reach 5-million in equity, you can uplist to NYSE.
Books to read:
"Real Estate Investment Trusts Handbook" by: Peter M. Fass, Michael E. Shaff, Donald B. Zief.
"Fuqua" by JB Fuqua -My Hero in the south.
Ticker Symbols you can look at that are doing this now (go towww.otcmarkets.com and look at ticker symbol "MRTI" and look at their financial filings. You will see exactly what to do in this regard.
Search other small REIT's on the OTC Markets for the smaller ones and see how their growing. The money is made by converting unusual assets into a REIT that has large retained earnings that aren't public now but have share holders, think small railroads, cable TV companies and Billboard companies. In the last few years, Windstream, Lamar and Power REIT have unlocked millions in equity this way.
This is stuff no one will tell you, I hope you do your home work and go for it. You can be creative as you want to get people to contribute property to your REIT. The benefit to them, especially if they have rolled and rolled 1031 exchanges, will be the ability to sell shares as they want over time. It also works great for Real Estate Investors that are ready to retire and want to split shares in an REIT to the Heirs and let them receive a stepped up basis and they can sell the shares over a few years. Think about this, how do you leave a shopping center to three kids? But you can leave them 2,000 shares each of a public REIT they can sell if they want to without the other Heirs and on and on.
Your idea is great, you just have to put the pieces together. Others are and no one will tell you how, I just told you a poor mans way and once you're NYSE, no one will care. Good luck.

What is Hard Money?
A hard money loan is a collateral based loan against a hard asset - typically real estate - and is often referred to as private mortgage or private mortgage note. Unlike typical mortgage loans, hard money loans are provided by private sources (individuals and small lenders rather than large government or Wall Street backed sources). Hard money loans are often used if a person is having a difficult time getting approved for a conventional loan. The approval process for a hard money loan is usually much more streamlined than with a conventional loan because hard money lenders don't have to follow strict institutional lending guidelines, and because they look mainly to the collateral as security for repayment rather than the borrower alone.
Hard money loans can be used for both commercial and residential properties and, since private lenders use their own money, they are able to create their own flexible lending terms that will meet both their and the borrower's needs. Another advantage of hard money loans is that they are typically closed very quickly and with little documentation. Of course, since these loans are usually “outside of the box” and higher risk, the interest rates for hard money loans are usually higher then with a conventional loan.
Will my deal qualify for Hard Money?
Although here are many different types of hard money lending programs, the following can be used as general guidelines for determining whether your deal would be appropriate for a hard money lender. Even if your deal doesn't match exactly to these guidelines, feel free to apply anyway. My hard money team will let you know if your deal makes sense for one of our many hard money lenders:
- Loans are usually up to 65% Loan-to-value (LTV) based off the After-Repaired-Value (ARV);
- 100% of acquisition/construction can be financed no problem;
- Both residential and commercial properties are OK;
- Low credit scores? No income? That's OK too;
- We welcome foreclosure/bank REO properties;
- Interest only and "no payment" options are available;
- All loans must be for business or investment purposes (sorry, no primary residences at this time);
- We can handle cash-out refinances of land or existing structures;
If you have any questions about your deal or hard money in general, please feel free to contact me, or you may simply complete the application by clicking here and either me or my underwriting team will contact you.

She started Blackademically Speaking® as an answer to this heart-wrenching education pandemic. I don’t know about you but I am tired of witnessing this warfare. Bottom line: Our Children Deserve Better Than This! Too many of our children’s faces are appearing on obituaries before drivers licenses…and far too many of our children do NOT know who they really are! I'm working to change all of that.
Blackademically Speaking Enterprises is on a serious mission to EMPOWER ALL OF OUR CHILDREN. EVERYWHERE. ALL THE TIME. What our children don’t know is not their fault. WE must TEACH them. EMPOWER them. INSPIRE them!

NO matter the city or state, we're equipped to Educate AND Motivate your students, staff and parents. If intrigued, send us your school, district and contact info. We'll gladly take it from there. Let's shift this pendulum of mediocrity, together! If you'd like to see more cultural relevance in your child's school and textbooks, tell them about us.
