Kendell Lang a Real Estate Expert With a Solution for All Medical Marijuana Growers

March 20, 2017

Medical marijuana has become an enormously profitable industry, which is not only evident in the massive figures generated (legally) last year (US $6.7 billion in North America) but also in its projected annual growth rate of a staggering 25%. There are currently an estimated 5,000+ state-licensed medical marijuana growers operating across North America and with the industry’s projected growth, this number is expected to steadily increase, even more so as local governments pass ordinances and issue permits to generate much-needed revenue.

It would seem to be a simple equation: more state-licensed medical marijuana growers = the greater need for real estate. But it’s not that simple. Consider the fact that even though medical marijuana is legal in 28 states and Washington D.C., this natural resource is still a Schedule 1 substance in the eyes of the federal law. This sets up a web of laws and restrictions the average grower has to navigate in order to locate real estate they can use for growing and harvesting their crops. Working with a federally illegal substance imposes a myriad of other challenges and obstacles on growers, not the least of which is a lack of co-operation from banks and traditional real estate agencies and therefore, denial to capital access.

The outcome of all these limiting factors is that medical marijuana growers need to back up their budding enterprises with a huge capital investment (typically without assistance from banks) or close their doors. Fortunately, there’s a new company in the marketplace and it’s offering medical marijuana growers the financial breathing room they need to become established in this flourishing industry by providing real estate management and development services. This company, Fusion Properties Management Group (FPMG), with real estate expert Kendell Lang as the founder and CEO, is paving the way to success for many licensed growers.

About Fusion Properties Management Group

“FPMG is a real estate development and asset management company that is focused on facility development, ownership and management for government-licensed and city-permitted growers of medical marijuana,” says real estate professional, Kendell Lang. “Our business is modeled after the highly successful Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) formula in the life science industry and our main drive is to provide cost-effective capital to medical marijuana growers so they aren’t having to use their capital for real estate investments.”

According to Kendell Lang, some of the services offered by FPMG include the selection, planning, development and management of sites, property, assets, construction, facilities, equipment and energy systems, as well as arranging permits and sourcing and structuring finances.

“Essentially, FPMG finds our clients real estate, which is licensed for cultivation of medical marijuana, in their area. This is a huge obstacle out of the way. We can then either build turnkey growing facilities and warehouses for them, or perform any necessary upgrades to the existing buildings,” explains real estate expert, Kendell Lang.

“Another facet of our service is to purchase real estate from medical marijuana growers and then lease it back to them at highly affordable rates. This returns to them all the capital they previously had locked up in real estate, which they can then use more profitably to drive and expand their operation.”

These comprehensive real estate services are providing immense relief to medical marijuana growers who are already heavily burdened with challenges. The ability to source licensed real estate or sell existing property to gain access to capital is breathing life into the industry at a grassroots level. More than ever before, there is hope for the MMJ growers to be able to fund a successful operation. If you are a state-licensed medical marijuana cultivator or manufacturer, you’re encouraged to submit your project to real estate expert Kendell Lang for consideration.

Real Estate Professional Kendell Lang Provides Rocket Fuel to Launch Medical Marijuana Grow Operations

March 9, 2017

At a wholesale price of up to $4,000 a pound, marijuana is one of the most expensive (legal) organic products in the world. Last year (2016), the cannabis industry was valued at US$6.7 billion and with an estimated annual growth rate of 25%, it’s no wonder more and more companies are eager to get on board with their own grow operations. But it’s here that they encounter a series of serious challenges, the most unavoidable, establishing and maintaining a medical marijuana grow facility which is enormously expensive.

Medical Marijuana Grow Facilities: Crippled By Lack Of Capital

Finding real estate that can legally be used for the cultivation of cannabis is one hurdle. Being able to afford that real estate and then build a facility that meets all state licensing requirements is another. Having the capital to purchase the necessary equipment and plants and then fund the ongoing power, water, staff and fertilizer demands is a third. According to Dave Gardner, consulting firm Colorado Cannabis Systems’ Senior Horticulturist, it can cost $700 to $750 in electricity alone to produce one pound of marijuana. And that is a conservative estimate.

And that’s not all. Where traditional businesses can effectively get off the ground with a bank loan, cannabis companies are denied services by most major U.S. banks because, at the federal level, cannabis is still an illegal substance. The consequence of this barrier (the exorbitant costs and the lack of bank services) is that budding medical marijuana grow operations are left crippled by a lack of capital before they can even compete in the market.

Fusion Properties Management Group, a REIT Offering Solutions

Real estate professional Kendell Lang, with his extensive background in the life sciences and controlled environment agriculture real estate, saw a dire need for a solution.

“With an excessive demand for capital being inherent to the medical marijuana grow industry, few MMJ businesses can truly afford to have their funds tied up in real estate. My solution was to create a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) that would buy the land and facilities owned by these companies and lease it back to them at affordable rates,” explains real estate expert Kendell Lang. “This will free up millions of dollars in capital that can be used to fuel the grow operation and its expansion.”

And so Kendell Lang founded Fusion Properties Management Group, through which state-licensed medical marijuana grow operations can gain access to single purpose real estate, establish sale-leaseback agreements and get the capital they need to build grow facilities or upgrade existing structures. Real estate, however, is only one facet of what Fusion Properties does. It also functions as a construction materials manufacturing company with access to proprietary technology that allows them to build turnkey facilities with operating costs that are up to 50% lower than conventional construction.

“We really provide a comprehensive set of services for grow facilities,” says Kendell Lang. “We strive to establish and maintain the largest nationwide portfolio of single purpose real estate specifically for the cultivation of medical marijuana. Through our services, MMJ businesses can purchase real estate, sell real estate with a leaseback agreement in place, build state-of-the-art facilities or upgrade existing ones. Fusion Properties caters quite comprehensively to the industry’s needs with our real estate and construction services.”

Kendell Lang, the Real Estate Professional Serving the Construction & Marketing Needs of MMJ Operators

February 17, 2017

The budding medical marijuana (MMJ) industry may carry huge potential for revenue, but it’s also demanding on capital and this is because controlled environment agriculture isn’t cheap! Demands on electricity, water and fertilizer are steep and the cost of equipment, staff, security and facilities, as well as the maintenance thereof, all cost a pretty penny. The consequences of this is that if you start without the necessary capital, you could find your grow operation in dire straits before you’ve even harvested your first crop of cannabis.

MMJ growers have extraordinarily unique real estate and capital requirements that commercial real estate professionals are mostly unable or unwilling to cater to. A grow operation needs land, they need specialized facilities equipped with energy-intensive lighting, irrigation systems, security and all kinds of expensive high tech and/or farming equipment. This is where real estate professional Kendell Lang offers to step in with his Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), Fusion Properties Management Group, which doesn’t only provide single purpose real estate to state-licensed MMJ businesses, but also sales/leaseback agreements that can give these businesses the capital they need to grow.

“You need to be extremely familiar with the life sciences and with controlled environment agriculture to understand and anticipate the needs of MMJ grow operations,” explains Kendell Lang. “And then you need the capital to be able to give these MMJ businesses what they need. Here at Fusion Properties we do all of this. We can provide real estate with customized, turnkey growing facilities that meet the needs of the individual grower. We can buy a company’s property and lease it back to them, thereby freeing up the precious capital they could be using to fund the grow operation. We also supply proprietary construction materials that can undercut traditional costs by up to 50%.

“We listen carefully to our prospective tenant’s needs, we then sit down with them and plan a strategic course of action that caters explicitly to these needs and we make it happen,” says real estate professional Kendell Lang.

Lang also has an extensive history as a social media keynote speaker and with his experience in digital marketing, he gladly offers a hand to tenants to really help their business grow and prosper. “In this highly competitive industry, MMJ growers need to establish a brand and make that brand synonymous with quality, just as Levi’s have done for jeans and Coca Cola for soft drinks,” explains Kendell Lang. “A strategic digital marketing plan that leverages the power of social media can achieve this. Moreover, it can mean the difference between success and failure.”

Fusion Properties may specialize in single purpose real estate, construction and tenant improvements, but Kendell Lang, as a social media keynote speaker, knows how to help clients achieve massive success through online marketing and he extends this additional service to tenants of Fusion.
