2 Greencrossing Real Estate Companies The Program Lot banking program whereby the Fund acquires finished lots on behalf of the Builder. Builder options lots back from the Fund on a preset takedown schedule and puts up a 10% - 15% cash or equivalent deposit to secure option.

Fund additionally receives profit participation on home sales. 2 December 15, 2009

3 Greencrossing Real Estate Companies Why Now? There are three main reasons why now is the opportune time to start a lot banking fund: 1 st – Where we are in the real estate cycle 2 nd – The finished and blue-top nature of the lots builders are buying 3 rd – Lack of competition 3 December 15, 2009

4 Greencrossing Real Estate Companies Why Now? – Where we are in the Cycle In A and B markets in California we are at or near a housing bottom. In A and B markets in California we ARE at a land bottom. Case-Shiller Index indicates a housing bottom. 4 December 15, 2009 Housing Bottom

5 Greencrossing Real Estate Companies Why Now? – Where we are in the Cycle Public builders believe we are at or near the bottom and they are buying lots again. Leading real estate economists and trend watchers are calling a bottom. Land brokers are experiencing a significant increase in demand for lots and offers from prospective buyers. Macro economic trends bode well for the housing sector and many believe housing will lead the national recovery. 5 December 15, 2009

6 Greencrossing Real Estate Companies Why Now? – The finished nature of lots During the last cycle of land banking, builders were buying raw land. Therefore, the land banker was subject to significant cost and timing risk and land devaluation as a result. Builders are now buying finished and blue-top lots so the risk of cost overruns is greatly diminished and because the lots are essentially ready to go, the majority of timing risk only relates to the builders ability to process and get their architecture approved in order to start homes. The finished nature of the lots makes is easy to quickly and efficiently underwrite deals. 6 December 15, 2009

7 Greencrossing Real Estate Companies Why Now? – Lack of competition While some groups are talking about starting a lot banking program, most of the groups from the last cycle have left the business. Having a first mover advantage in this next cycle will generate superior access to quality builders and their quality deals. Target returns can remain high due to low competition. 7 December 15, 2009

9 Greencrossing Real Estate Companies Program Details Builder sources deal then approaches the Fund to lot bank it for them. The Fund underwrites the deal during the Builders feasibility period. If the Fund decides to pursue the deal, then Builder assigns the purchase and sale agreement to the Fund while simultaneously entering into an option agreement and construction agreement with the Fund. Pursuant to the option agreement, Builder purchases lots from the Fund based on preset takedown timing and pricing. Pursuant to the construction agreement, Builder maintains the property and finishes any required work. 9 December 15, 2009

10 Greencrossing Real Estate Companies Characteristics of the Option Agreement Builder shall be required to takedown lots based on a preset takedown schedule which shall not be longer than 30 months.
