The Co-vid pandemic is getting under control and most restrictions are being lessened and/or eliminated. Business, in general, is starting to get back to pre-pandemic levels. Vaccinations, acceptance, and adherence to social distancing & mask regulations along with the warmer weather are causing this improvement.

Property Features and Assets:

The Location… The Day Care is located between Sherman, New Milford & Danbury (north-south) and between Brewster, NY (Route 22 & Candlewood Lake & Danbury (east-west). The Day Care runs parallel to Route 37 and Route 39 - shortcuts to everywhere! The school is in the middle of many families ' commuting routes - perfect to drop off & pick up children while the parents work or shop. The business is in a residential neighborhood of Danbury, CT. The site is in a mixed blue & white collar 2 earner family neighborhood. The school is pre-existing, non-conforming, and is grandfathered as a Day Care. Should you rent the apartment a fair rent for this apartment is +/- $2,200 - $2,500 per month ($26,400 - $30,000/year)...check in the local papers and the MLS to get the latest rates.

Market Competition and Expansion:

The Financials… Having an apartment is good for a semi-retired teacher or existing daycare worker wanting a business of their own to make a fair-excellent living and a good investment for retirement. In the meantime, he/she will be their own boss! It is also very convenient to live upstairs from the school or you can rent it out in a lively apartment market with a big demand especially the millennials & Gen Xers. Let this business/property provide a salary for you, pay back the bank and yourself for your original investment, and give you a Return on your total investment when you sell, and…you’re your own boss! Besides having your home where your business is - which is awesome for some people, this daycare is in a great location. Been there for over 45 years and the current Owner for the last 15 years. Update: The daycare now operates with 6 (including the Owner) working between 30 & 35 hours per week. Hours are Monday through Friday 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. Labor is now +/- $160,510, ($3,087/week). Projection… Sales for the last 6 years have averaged +/- $356,854 (2014-2019) and the last 3 years at $333,095. More full-time children vs part-time will increase sales revenues and profits, especially now that there is a demand for Day Care (many parents returning to work etc.). At the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020 sales increased. For the first 3 months of 2020 revenues showed a 13.1% increase over the same period of 2019 – then came the co-vid pandemic with social distancing and government and industry guidelines and restrictions. Update: as of 5/5/21 there are 29 children at the school (10 full-time and 19 part-time). In June/2021 there will be 35 children at the school (14 full-time and 21 part-time. Revenues in April 2021 have finally returned to 2019 levels (+2.8% better than 2019). Can you assume if the pandemic had not occurred that 2020’s sales might have been +/- $360,000 (2019’s $317,312 times 13.1% increase)? Especially if you concentrated on getting more full-time children than part-timers. Using $360,000 as the gross, Owner’s Cash Flow could have been +/- $123,064 (estimated)! These are some ideas for you and your advisors to research, verify and agree or disagree with.
