Transforming the Community by Investing in Property and People

Daryl Anderson has been investing in Cleveland through Mustard Seed Development for six years.  With more than 50 properties and an experienced crew, Daryl is known for his integrity and quality of work throughout the community.  When you invest with Mustard Seed Development, you are partnering with integrity, vision, and a city full of hardworking partners.  

Property

Mustard Seed Development buys houses at below market rates from community development corporations, land banks, and real estate agents. Then we rehabilitate the properties and rent them out to newcomers in the community.

People

As we renovate properties we train these same newcomers in marketable, construction trade skills. With job training and renovation working together, we are lifting up whole communities.

 
Working with Mustard Seed and Daryl Anderson is a special and unique experience because you can share in their vision of helping refugees and rebuilding Cleveland neighborhoods and can make money doing it!

Visionary Investors

Since we continue to purchase properties in the same areas at a low cost, our properties are far more valuable as rentals than as resales.  We aren't looking for short term investors.  We are looking for high quality investors looking who will see a significant return over the next 10+ years.  

Strategy

Mustard Seed transfers ownership of a property to you for $45-75k and continues to manage the rental for you.  You receive $500-750/month in rent, and we retain a 10% management fee.  Stable renters lift up a community while you make money on your investment.  Make money while doing good. 

Return on Investment

Purchasing a property for $45k that brings in $600/month in means you make your money back in about 6 years and continue to make $7,200 yearly in passive income.*  Our investors regularly get a 15-18% return on investment by year seven. The ROI is significantly higher as time goes on.

Experience

As we train and consult developers and investors, we are finding that many of them have the same kinds of questions:

  • How do I go about investing in Real-Estate now with no experience? 
  • What is the best way to invest? 
  • How can I start a company to take advantage of the current market? 

These are all great questions, and we have two answers to all of them: 

You can either make your own mistakes as you learn or, you can learn from the mistakes we already made.

Either way you choose, option two is a lot less expensive.

Mustard Seed Development has been working in the field of real-estate for almost 7 years now.  We have made mistakes, but have learned through them and grown tremendously because of them.  We have trained men how to work in the construction industry, taught others the benefit of investing in real-estate and helped others to close their first deal in real-estate.

Let us fix the learning curve for you.  We have the experience necessary to enable you to create wealth through real estate, whether that throughhands on renovation, passive investing or starting a development company.

We have six years of experience working with newcomers to the United States.  We have been creating housing, providing jobs, managing rental houses, managing projects, networking with government and community organizations, and building up volunteer networks.

Mustard Seed Development can take you from where you are at, to the next level of real-estate investing or economic development, because we know the way.  We've walked the path.  Let us take you there.

Daryl is truly a social entrepreneur, and many people on many levels are able to benefit from his success.
