ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
Company History
 
We were originally organized under the laws of the State of Colorado on July 28, 2008.
 
In March of 2010, we adopted the current focus of our business, which is providing real estate agents with buyer leads thereby obtaining referral commissions from  subsequent sales. Under Colorado law we must hold a real estate license to be paid such commissions. On February 13, 2012 the State of Colorado granted  the “Employing Broker” license, which satisfies the regulatory requirements.

We have borrowed money from our President, Corey Wiegand and we completed an IPO to raise working capital as required by our business.

We have a web site. The address is www.hometreasurefinder.com.  A portion of the funds we raised in our IPO was used to complete our website.

 Principal Services and their Markets
 
Home Treasure Finders is a licensed real estate brokerage specializing in buyer agency. The Company’s mission is to help established realtors generate and convert IVR leads. We plan to generate the leads with IVR or “integrated voice response.” Our system is fully functional. It incorporates call capture technology to provide agents with real time access to buyer and seller leads.
 
Marketing of our Service

Our business plan provides that our President will recruit and train motivated buyer agents in our local market.
 
Our business plan further provides that our President will arrange for our sign riders to be attached  to normal real estate “for sale” signs located in front of a listed property. Our rider displays a 1-800-number and promises to provide listing specific information by a recorded message. As the caller listens to the property description, the caller’s phone number is captured and sent via e-mail and text message to a Home Treasure Finders buyer agent. Our business plan provides that our buyer agent will immediately call the potential buyer back and begin a dialog designed to convert the “cold lead” to a signed offer to purchase a property.

When our buyer agent closes the related sale, Home Treasure Finders is paid 25 % of the total commission. This occurs on any sale involving the potential buyer who was introduced to the buyer agent by Home Treasure Finders and closing within one year of the original lead date. This feature of our business plan enables us to generate revenue even if the buyer eventually decides to purchase a property other than the one displaying our IVR sign.
 
Competition

Our Competition and the Home Treasure Finders Strategy

We believe there are many real estate lead marketing companies in existence.  From our general experience and conversations with other real estate professionals, we believe that those established lead marketing companies sell their lead generation services to agents for a monthly fee. We further believe that our competition is not licensed, and thus cannot be paid a real estate commission.
 
3

 

Home Treasure Finders intends to provide both  leads and training at no cost to those buyer agents who sign our agreement to split gross commissions. We believe our competition does not provide training to convert leads to sales.

Intellectual Property
 
We have a website. We are upgrading the site to include proprietary software on the back end. The additional software is valuable intellectual property and important to the automation of our call capture strategy as contained in our business plan. Completion and activation of this additional web site construction will enable a sequence of automated calls and data transfer which include processing and sending IVR leads to our buyer agents in real time.

Governmental Regulation

Maintaining any licenses deemed necessary by governmental jurisdictions is expensive and time consuming. This and numerous additional factors could delay operations and our cash reserves could be depleted. An unfavorable outcome in connection with these and other risks is possible, however we are not presently able to predict the outcome. 

ENVIRONMENT
 
We believe that our operations comply in all material respects with applicable laws and regulations concerning the environment. While it is impossible to predict accurately the future costs associated with environmental compliance and potential remediation activities, compliance with environmental laws is not expected to require significant capital expenditures and is not expected to have, a material adverse effect on our planned revenue or competitive position.
 
PRODUCT LIABILITY
 
Our service exposes the Company to liability claims by real estate owners, potential buyers and others. The company maintains legally required liability insurance. Any claim not covered by our policy could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition.
 
OUR FACILITIES
 
We conduct company administration and marketing from an office located in the home of our President, Corey Wiegand.

SEASONALITY

Our business is materially affected by seasonal factors, including but not limed to:
 
1.  
Changes in residential real estate inventory
2.  
Changes in buyer demand caused by the economy, holidays, Fall “back to school” or other special events
3.  
Unusual or severe weather

EMPLOYEES
 
As of December 31, 2012 and the date of this report we have one employee.

RISK FACTORS

This investment has a high degree of risk. Before you invest you should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below. If any of the following risks actually occur, our business, operating results and financial condition could be harmed and the value of our stock could go down. This means you could lose all or a part of your investment.
 
Our Auditor’s report states that there is substantial doubt that we will be able to continue as a going concern.

We have had substantial losses since inception and minimal cash reserves. We may be unable to continue as a going concern. In the event that we are forced to reduce operations or in any way curtail our business, an investor will lose all money invested.

We have a limited operating history, there is no certainty that we will generate enough revenue to achieve profitability.

Our ability to achieve profitability depends upon the continued service of Corey Wiegand, our founder, who has to date been our sole source of commission revenue. During the last six months our revenues have accelerated and we are no longer considered a development stage company.  As shown in our financial statements, as of the periods ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we have incurred net losses of $45,810 and $64,049, respectively from operations. We may incur significant operating losses in the foreseeable future, primarily due to the expansion of our operations. Our business plan provides that we will grow rapidly and ultimately deliver professional services to would be buyers through “buyer agents” rather than primarily through our founder. To actualize this goal, we plan to market our advanced sales techniques to established realtors that wish to earn more commissions from buyer transactions. We plan to recruit buyer agents to sign our master referral agreements, graduate from our workshops and respond to our IVR leads. 
 
Our company is new and has only recently commenced planned operations.  We may not be able to generate predictable and continuous revenue in the near future. Further, there is no assurance that we will ever grow operations outside the Denver Metro area.  Failure to generate sufficient revenue to pay expenses as they come due may make us unable to continue as a going concern and result in the failure of our company and the complete loss of any money invested to purchase our shares.
 
We may be unable to manage our growth, if any, or implement our expansion strategy.

We may not be able to provide mentor services, educate realtors, or obtain referrals on a volume basis and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected by low sales volume.
 
As a public company, our expenses include, but are not limited to, annual audits, legal costs, SEC reporting costs, costs of a transfer agent and the costs associated with fees and compliance. Further, our management will need to invest significant time and energy to stay current with the public company responsibilities of our business and will therefore have diminished time available to apply to other tasks necessary to our survival. It is therefore possible that the financial and time burdens of operating as a public company will cause us to fail to achieve profitability.  If we exhaust our funds, our business will fail and our investors will lose all money invested in our stock.
 
It is essential that we grow our business, achieve profits and maintain adequate cash flow to pay the cost of remaining public. If we fail to pay public company costs, as such costs are incurred, we could become delinquent in our reporting obligations.
 
 
5

 
 
The issuance of additional shares of our common stock may be necessary for the implementation of our growth strategy.

The issuance by us of any additional securities pursuant to any future fundraising activities undertaken by us would dilute the ownership of existing shareholders and may reduce the price of our common stock.  Furthermore, debt financing, if available, will require payment of interest and may involve restrictive covenants that could impose limitations on our operating flexibility. Our failure to successfully obtain additional funding may jeopardize our ability to continue our business and operations.  We have no present plan to issue additional common stock or undertake additional financing.

The loss of our current executive officer or key management personnel or inability to attract and retain the necessary personnel could have a material adverse effect upon our business, financial condition or results of operations

Our success is heavily dependent on the continued active participation of our current executive officer and sole director listed under “Management.” Loss of the services of our officer could have a material adverse effect upon our business, financial condition or results of operations. Further, our success and achievement of our growth plans depend on our ability to recruit, hire, train and retain other highly qualified technical, professional, clerical, administrative and managerial personnel. Competition for qualified buyer agents among companies in the real estate industry is intense, and the loss of any of such persons, or an inability to attract, retain and motivate any additional highly skilled realtors required for the expansion of our activities, could have a materially adverse effect on us. The inability on our part to attract and retain the necessary personnel, consultants and advisors could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations. 
 
We are controlled by our current officer and director.
 
Our sole director, who is our sole executive officer, benificially owns approximately 57.1% of our outstanding shares of Common Stock. Accordingly, our executive officer and director will have the ability to control the election of our Board of Directors and the outcome of issues submitted to our stockholders.
 
Since we have only one director who serves as our president, chief executive officer, chief financial officer and secretary, decisions which affect the company will be made by only one individual.  It is likely that conflicts of interest will arise in the day-to- day operations of our business.  Such conflicts, if not properly resolved, could have a material negative impact on our business.
 
In the past, the Company has issued shares for cash and services at prices which were solely determined by Corey Wiegand. At that time, Mr. Wiegand made a determination of both the value of services exchanged for our shares, and, as well, the price per share used as compensation.  Transactions of this nature were not made at arm’s length and were made without input from a knowledgeable and non-interested third party. Future transactions of a like nature could dilute the percentage ownership of the company owned by a given investor. While the company believes its past transactions were appropriate, and plans to act in good faith in the future, an investor in our shares will have no ability to alter such transactions as the may occur in the future and, further, will not be consulted by the company in advance of any such transactions. An investor who is unwilling to endure such potential dilution should not purchase our shares.
 
We have limited financial resources to take advantage of advertising opportunities as they may arise.
           
The inability to pay for signs, telephone services and web-based advertisements on established websites would adversely affect our ability to generate sufficient buyer leads and meet future realtor demand for referrals and could impair our ability to enter this market.

Our operating results will be subject to fluctuations and our stock price may decline significantly.
 
Our quarterly revenue and operating results will be difficult to predict from quarter to quarter. It is possible that our operating results in some quarters will fall below our expectations. Our quarterly operating results will be affected by a number of factors, including:

 
 
trends in the median home values in Colorado;
 
 
the availability, pricing and timeliness of web advertising campaigns;
 
 
the impact of seasonal variations in demand and/or revenue recognition linked to construction cycles and weather conditions and the retail price of signs, sign riders, telephone services, and Mentor Sales Workshops;
 
 
timing, availability and changes in government incentive programs;
 
 
unplanned additional expenses;
 
 
logistical costs;
 
 
unpredictable volume and  timing of buyer’s agent sales;
 
 
our ability to establish and expand listing agent relationships;
 
 
the number of buyer agents that we are able to recruit, the ability to book facilities for planned sales training seminars;
 
 
the timing of new technology announcements or introductions by our competitors and other developments in the competitive environment;
 
 
increases or decreases in real estate appreciation rates due to changes in economic growth;
 
 
travel costs and other factors causing the mentor training business to become more difficult; and
 
 
changes in lending, inspection, appraisal and other factors that result in closing delays or cancellations.
 
If revenue for a particular quarter is lower than we expect, we likely will be unable to proportionately reduce our operating expenses for that quarter, which would harm our operating results for that quarter. If we fail to meet investor expectations or our own future guidance, even by a small amount, our stock price could decline, perhaps substantially.  
 
Existing real estate laws, regulations and policies and changes to these regulations and policies may present technical, regulatory and economic barriers to potential buyers and consequently to the real estate referral business which may significantly reduce demand for our services.
 
The market for homes is influenced by U.S. federal, state and local government regulations and policies concerning the real estate industry, as well as policies promulgated by local real estate boards. These regulations and policies often relate to realtor compensation, and pricing. In the U.S. and in a number of other countries, these regulations and policies are being modified and may continue to be modified. Investment in the real estate, could be deterred by these regulations and policies, which could result in a significant reduction in the potential demand for our services. For example, loss of favorable tax treatment, certain government buyer incentive programs, and or government subsidized or backed loan programs may result in loss of sales which would likely harm our financial performance. 
 
We anticipate that our mentor services and their perceived customer value will be subject to oversight and regulation in accordance with national and local ordinances relating to real estate sales laws. Any new government regulations could cause a significant reduction in demand for our mentor services.

 
7

 

The reduction or elimination of government and economic incentives could cause our revenue to decline.
   
Today, we believe consumer confidence is slowly recovering. However buyers are finding it very difficult to qualify for loans.  As a result, federal, state and local government bodies in many states have provided incentives in the form of rebates, tax credits and other incentives to buyers that are willing to purchase real estate. For example, an eight thousand dollar first time home buyer tax credit was offered and thereafter the credit offering expired.  Future government economic incentives, if any, could be reduced or eliminated altogether. Such home buyer incentives expire, decline over time, are limited in total funding or require renewal of authority. Reductions in, or eliminations or expirations of, governmental incentives could result in decreased demand for our services.
 
Changes in tax laws or fiscal policies may decrease the return on investment for customers of our business which could decrease demand for our services and harm our business.
 
 We anticipate that a portion of our future revenues will be derived from commissions in connection with the sale of single family residences to individual homebuyers. In deciding whether to purchase or to rent, prospective customers may evaluate their projected return on investment. Such projections are based on current and proposed federal, state and local laws, particularly tax legislation. Changes to these laws, including amendments to existing tax laws or the introduction of new tax laws, tax court rulings as well as changes in administrative guidelines, ordinances and similar rules and regulations could result in different tax assessments and may adversely affect a homeowner’s projected return on investment, which could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
 
Problems with service quality or individual buyer agent performance may include agent error, agent negligence or problems within the mentoring services we plan to provide. The result would likely be fewer customers, reduced revenue, unexpected expenses and loss of market share.
 
In the future, should we become significantly reliant on abilities and skills of other agents at arm’s length, we may fall victim to unexpected agent errors or omissions.  If we deliver mentor services provided by third party agents our credibility and the market acceptance of our mentor services could be harmed. 
 
The realtors we plan to recruit may not deliver consistent and professional mentor and “buyer agent” services and thus our business plan may not gain market acceptance, which would prevent us from achieving sales and market share
 
The development of a successful market for the mentor services we intend to deliver may be adversely affected by a number of factors, some of which are beyond our control, including:
 
our failure to offer mentoring services that compete favorably against other services on the basis of cost, quality and performance;
   
our failure to offer mentoring services that compete favorably against conventional sales agents and realtors and alternative lead-generation technologies, such as text and e-mail spamming on the basis of cost, quality and performance.
 
If the services we intend to offer fail to gain market acceptance, we will be unable to achieve significant sales and market share.
 
If refinements in phone or web technology cause the services we intend to deliver to become uncompetitive or obsolete that could prevent us from achieving market share and sales. The real estate industry is rapidly evolving and highly competitive. A variety of competing lead generation technologies may be under development or available now that could result in lower buyer agent costs or higher conversion rates than those lead generation technologies selected by us. These development efforts may render obsolete the lead generation services we have selected to offer.

Existing telephone and web advertising regulations and changes to such regulations may present regulatory and economic barriers to the purchase of real estate lead generation services, which may significantly reduce demand for our services.
 
The market for lead generation services is heavily influenced by federal, state and local government regulations and policies concerning the tech based marketing industry, as well as internal policies and regulations promulgated by “national do not call lists.” These regulations and policies often relate to public privacy. In the United States these regulations and policies are being modified and may continue to be modified. We anticipate that our lead generation channels will be subject to oversight and regulation in accordance with national and local ordinances relating to privacy protection, and related matters.  Any new government regulations or utility policies pertaining to our lead generation services may result in significant additional expenses to us and as a result, could cause a significant reduction in sales referrals.
 
If our mentoring services are not suitable for widespread adoption, or a sufficient demand for trained buyer agents or leads does not develop, or takes longer to develop than we anticipate, we would be unable to achieve sales.

The market for residential real estate is rapidly evolving and its future is uncertain. If real estate proves unsuitable for widespread ownership or if demand for our mentoring services fails to develop sufficiently, we would be unable to achieve sales and market share. In addition, demand for real estate mentoring in the markets and geographic regions we target may not develop or may develop more slowly than we anticipate. Many factors will influence the widespread adoption of real estate mentoring including:
 
•   
cost-effectiveness of hiring a mentor as compared with establishing a conventional buyer agency agreement;
•   
performance and reliability of trained mentors as compared with conventional and established buyer agents;
•   
success of alternative lead generation technologies such as web-casts, text messaging, email spamming;
•   
fluctuations in economic and market conditions that impact the viability of real estate purchases;
•   
increases or decreases in the costs associated with obtaining a residential home loan;
•   
capital expenditures by customers, which tend to decrease when the domestic or foreign economies slow;
•   
continued regulation of the real estate and lending industries; and
•   
availability and effectiveness of government subsidies and incentives.
 
 The reduction in home loan availability could prevent us from achieving sales and market share.
 
The reduction or elimination of government lending incentives may adversely affect the growth of this market or result in increased price competition, which could prevent us from achieving sales and market share.
 
Today, over 70% of home loans are insured by the federal housing administration (FHA loans). These loans are popular because they have lower down payment requirements and lower credit score requirements.  Should FHA raise their down payment or credit requirements the result could be reduced home purchases which would significantly harm our business.  

 
9

 


We face intense competition from other real estate brokerages and other real estate mentoring companies. If we fail to compete effectively, we may be unable to increase our market share and sales.
 
Most of our competitors are substantially larger than we are, have longer operating histories and have substantially greater financial, technical, marketing and other resources than we do. Our competitors' greater sizes in some cases provides them with competitive advantages with respect to marketing costs due to their ability to allocate fixed costs across a greater volume of marketing channels and purchase signs and services at lower prices. They also have far greater name recognition, an established network of past customers. In addition, many of our competitors have well-established relationships with current and potential home sellers. As a result, our competitors will be able to devote greater resources to the prospecting, relationship development, and promotion and may be able to respond more quickly to evolving industry standards and changing customer requirements than we can.
 
A substantial number of our issued shares are, or are being made available for sale on the open market. The resale of these securities might adversely affect our stock price.

The sale of a substantial number of shares of our common stock, or the market's anticipation of such sales, could make it more difficult for us to sell equity or equity-related securities in the future at a time and at a price that we might otherwise wish to effect sales.

Availability of these shares for sale in the public market could also impair our ability to raise capital by selling equity securities.
 
Since there is presently no trading market for our shares, an investment in our shares is totally illiquid.  An investor purchasing our shares will not be able to resell their shares  unless a market for our shares develops at some point in the future. There can be no assurance that such a market will ever develop. Therefore, investors who purchase our shares could lose their entire investment.
 
Even if a market for our shares does develop at a future date, the volume of trading will be small and on many days the volume will be zero. Our share price will likely be volatile and will likely fall rapidly should an investor attempt to liquidate even as small number of shares. These conditions are likely to persist and could prevent resale of our shares. 

We are subject to corporate governance and internal control reporting requirements, and our costs related to compliance with, or our failure to comply with existing and future requirements, could adversely affect our business.
 
We face new corporate governance requirements under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as well as new rules and regulations subsequently adopted by the SEC and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. These laws, rules and regulations continue to evolve and may become increasingly stringent in the future. In particular, under new SEC rules we will be required to include management's report on internal controls as part of our annual report pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Furthermore, under the proposed rules, an attestation report on our internal controls from our independent registered public accounting firm will be required as part of our annual report. We are in the process of evaluating our control structure to help ensure that we will be able to comply with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The financial cost of compliance with these laws, rules and regulations is expected to be substantial. We cannot assure you that we will be able to fully comply with these laws, rules and regulations that address corporate governance, internal control reporting and similar matters. Failure to comply with these laws, rules and regulations could materially adversely affect our reputation, financial condition and the value of our securities.

Because 93% of residential listings are held by just 7% of listing agents, our business will become extremely dependent on a very limited number of listing agents.  In the event that we enter relationships with the most productive listing agents and placed our signs at their respective inventories, we could ultimately become dependent on them.  If any of these relationships is not maintained, or if the listing agent  duplicates our service this could prevent us from delivering our services to our customers within required timeframes, which could result in loss of market share.
 
If we fail to develop or maintain our relationships with powerful listing agents, or sign management companies, we may be unable to put our IVR signs at their listings and as a result we may not receive an adequate number of buyer and seller inquiries. Our services may not be marketed effectively and this could prevent us from delivering our services to our customers within required timeframes and we may experience lower sales conversion rates and loss of market share. The failure of a listing agent to supply us with updated listing inventory lists in a timely manner, or failure of a sign management company to post our signs quickly and inexpensively, could impair our ability to prospect effectively and increase our costs.  If the buyer agent to whom we refer business is unable to respond to customer inquiries on a timely basis, we could be prevented from delivering our services to our customers within required timeframes, which could result in lower sales conversion rates, a higher number of contract terminations and loss of market share, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
 
 Because the markets in which we compete are highly competitive and many of our competitors have greater resources, we may not be able to compete successfully and we may lose, or be unable to gain, market share.
 
We expect to face increased competition in the future. Further, many of our competitors are developing and are currently producing sales prospecting tools based on new web  technologies that may ultimately have costs similar to, or lower than, our projected costs.
 
Our mentoring services compete against other buyer agent sources including, Realtor.com’s “buyer assist”, and cohomefinder.com. In the large-scale real estate sales market, we will face direct competition from a number of real estate companies that provide sales services. Our website, www.hometreasurefinder.com will attempt to compete with these more established internet resources. Other potential competitors in the real estate market include real estate brokerages, realtors and individual real estate agents. We also expect that future competition will include new entrants to the real estate market offering new technological solutions. As we enter new markets and pursue additional applications for our services, we expect to face increased competition, which may result in price reductions, reduced margins or loss of market share.
 
Competition is intense, and many of our competitors have significantly greater access to financial, technical, manufacturing, marketing, management and other resources than we do. Many also have greater name recognition, a more established network and a larger base of customers. In addition, many of our competitors have well-established relationships with our potential sign suppliers, and sign management companies and have extensive knowledge of our target markets. As a result, these competitors may be able to devote greater resources to the promotion and sale of their listings and respond more quickly to evolving industry standards and changing customer requirements.
 
We believe that the key competitive factors in the market for real estate leads include:
 
·                 Lead cost;
 
·                 Lead conversion rate
 
We believe that certain buyer agents may have existing relationships  with certain established listing agents. We also believe that certain listing agents may already have great working relationships with certain individual buyer agents. We will likely not be able to convince these listing agents to drop the buyer's agents that they already have and outsource their leads to us.

However, we believe some listing agents do not presently have an adequate buyer agent arrangement. Consequently, we plan concentrate our efforts to form listing agent relationships where our efforts will most likely meet with success.
 
 
11

 

We may also face competition from groups we have not yet identified who may develop services or technologies which are competitive with our services. Consolidation or strategic alliances among such competitors may strengthen these advantages and may provide them greater access to customers or new technologies. If government funding for down payments and home buying and development grants, customer tax rebates and other programs that promote real estate investment are available to our clients, we plan to assist our clients in pursuit of such funds.
 
If we cannot compete successfully in the real estate industry, our operating results and financial condition will be adversely affected. Furthermore, we expect competition in the targeted markets to increase, which could result in lower sales conversion rates or reduced demand for our service offerings and may have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
 
Demand for our mentoring services is affected by general economic conditions.
 
The United States and international economies have recently experienced a period of reduced economic growth. A sustained economic recovery is uncertain. In particular, terrorist acts and similar events, continued turmoil in the Middle East or war in general could contribute to a slowdown of the market demand for real estate investments that require significant initial capital expenditures, including demand for fix and flips, rental properties, and new residential and commercial buildings. In addition, increases in interest rates may increase financing costs to customers, which in turn may decrease demand for real estate investment. If the economic recovery slows as a result of the recent economic, political and social turmoil, or if there are further terrorist attacks in the United States or elsewhere, we may experience decreases in the demand for our mentoring services, which may harm our operating results.
 
Compliance with real estate law and local regulations can be expensive, and non-compliance with these regulations may result in adverse publicity and potentially significant monetary damages and fines for us.
 
Our present and planned operations do not involve any irregular activities. Nonetheless, we are required to comply with all foreign, U.S. federal, state and local laws and regulations regarding licensing and insurance requirements. In addition, under some statutes and regulations, a government agency, or other parties, may seek recovery and response costs from an agent where warrantees have been made, even if the agent was not responsible for such a warrantee or is otherwise at fault. In the course of future business we may inadvertently refer business to an agent who does not comply with local laws and regulations.  Any failure by us to shift responsibility onto that agent, and thus restrict our liability in connection with the incident, could subject us to potentially significant monetary damages and fines or suspensions in our business operations. In addition, if more stringent laws and regulations are adopted in the future, the costs of compliance with these new laws and regulations could be substantial. If we fail to comply with present or future real estate laws and regulations we may be required to pay substantial fines, suspend, or cease operations.
      
There are restrictions on the transferability of the securities.

Until registered for resale, investors must bear the economic risk of an investment in the Shares for an indefinite period of time. Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”), which provides for an exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act under certain conditions, requires, among other conditions, a six month holding period prior to the resale (in limited amounts) of securities acquired in a non-public offering without having to satisfy the registration requirements under the Securities Act There can be no assurance that we will fulfill any reporting requirements in the future under the Exchange Act or disseminate to the public any current financial or other information concerning us.

If the Company uses its stock in acquisitions of other entities there may be substantial dilution at the time of a transaction.
 
The $0.10 per share offering price of the common stock we sold under our prospectus was arbitrarily set. The price did not bear any relationship to our assets, book value, earnings or net worth and it is not an indication of actual value. You may also suffer additional dilution in the future from the sale of additional shares of common stock or other securities or if the Company’s shares are issued to purchase other assets.
 
The laws which govern merger transactions provide that since our sole director and officer owns over 50% of our outstanding shares, we may enter into a share exchange, reverse merger or other similar transaction with a private company in an unrelated business without the prior approval of unaffiliated shareholders.
 
The various securities laws applicable to our company provide that our management may elect to enter and consummate a transaction to enter a new or additional businesses. In that event, our shareholders would likely receive only an information statement with certain disclosures as required by law and would likely not be in a position to approve or disapprove the transaction. Investors who are unwilling to accept the uncertainty of new management, a new business plan, likely dilution and all the numerous related uncertainties that may materialize in the event such a transaction is consummated, should not purchase our shares.
 
There is presently no market for our common stock, Failure to develop or maintain a trading market could negatively affect the value of our shares and make it difficult or impossible for you to sell your shares.

Prior to our IPO, there has been no public market for our common stock and a public market for our common stock may not develop.  We will attempt to have our common stock quoted on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB) or the OTCQB which are both dealer systems. We plan to locate one or more market-makers to provide quotations for our common stock, but it is possible that no market-maker will want to provide such quotations. Failure to develop or maintain an active trading market could negatively affect the value of our shares and make it difficult for you to sell your shares or recover any part of your investment in us.  Even if a market for our common stock does develop, the market price of our common stock may be highly volatile.  In addition to the uncertainties relating to our future operating performance and the profitability of our operations, factors such as variations in our interim financial results, or various, and as yet unpredictable factors, many of which are beyond our control, may have a negative effect on the market price of our common stock.

Even if our common stock is assigned a trading symbol and quoted on the OTCBB or OTCQB a limited trading market is all that we anticipate for the near future. Accordingly, there can be no assurance as to the liquidity of any markets that may develop for our common stock, the ability of holders of our common stock to sell our common stock, or the prices at which holders may be able to sell our common stock.

Our common stock will be subject to the “Penny Stock” rules of the SEC.

The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted Rule 15g-9 which establishes the definition of a "penny stock," for the purposes relevant to us, as any equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share or with an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. For any transaction involving a penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require:

·
that a broker or dealer approve a person's account for transactions in penny stocks; and   the broker or dealer receive from the investor a written agreement to the transaction, setting forth the identity and quantity of the penny stock to be purchased.
 
In order to approve a person's account for transactions in penny stocks, the broker or dealer must:

·
obtain financial information and investment experience objectives of the person; and   make a reasonable determination that the transactions in penny stocks are suitable for that person and the person has sufficient knowledge and experience in financial matters to be capable of evaluating the risks of transactions in penny stocks.
 
The broker or dealer must also deliver, prior to any transaction in a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prescribed by the Commission relating to the penny stock market, which, in highlight form:

·
sets forth the basis on which the broker or dealer made the suitability determination; and
   
·
that the broker or dealer received a signed, written agreement from the investor prior to the transaction.

Generally, brokers may be less willing to execute transactions in securities subject to the "penny stock" rules. This may make it more difficult for investors to dispose of our common stock and cause a decline in the market value of our stock.

Disclosure also has to be made about the risks of investing in penny stocks in both public offerings and in secondary trading and about the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, current quotations for the securities and the rights and remedies available to an investor in cases of fraud in penny stock transactions. Finally, monthly statements have to be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks.
 
Should our stock become quoted on the OTCBB and/or OTCQB, if we fail to remain current on our reporting requirements, we could be removed from either market which would limit the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and the ability of stockholders to sell their securities in the secondary market.
 
Companies quoted on the OTCBB or OTCQB, such as we are seeking to become, are reporting issuers under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and must be current in their reports under Section 13, in order to maintain price quotation privileges on the OTCBB or OTCQB. If we fail to remain current on our reporting requirements, we could be removed from quotation. As a result, the market liquidity for our securities could be severely adversely affected by limiting the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and the ability of stockholders to sell their securities in the secondary market.   In addition, we may be unable to get re-listed for quotation on the OTC Bulletin Board, which may have an adverse material effect on our Company.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION

Forward-looking statements

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the financial statements of Home Treasure Finders, Inc. (the “Company”), which are included elsewhere in this Form 10-K. This Annual Report on Form 10-K contains forward-looking information. Forward-looking information includes statements relating to future actions, future performance, costs and expenses, interest rates, outcome of contingencies, financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, business strategies, cost savings, objectives of management, and other such matters of the Company. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a “safe harbor” for forward-looking information to encourage companies to provide prospective information about themselves without fear of litigation so long as that information is identified as forward-looking and is accompanied by meaningful cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the information. Forward-looking information may be included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K or may be incorporated by reference from other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) by the Company. You can find many of these statements by looking for words including, for example, “believes”, “expects”, “anticipates”, “estimates” or similar expressions in this Annual Report on Form 10-K or in documents incorporated by reference in this Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information or future events.

We have based the forward-looking statements relating to our operations on our management’s current expectations, estimates and projections about our Company and the industry in which we operate. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that we cannot predict. In particular, we have based many of these forward-looking statements on assumptions about future events that may prove to be inaccurate. Accordingly, our actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements. Any differences could result from a variety of factors, including, but not limited to general economic and business conditions, competition, and other factors.

Limited Operating History
 
There is limited historical financial information about our Company upon which to base an evaluation of our future performance.  We cannot guarantee that we will be successful in our business. We are subject to risks inherent in a small company, including limited capital resources, delays and cost overruns due to price and cost increases. There is no assurance that future financing will be available to our company on acceptable terms. Additional equity financing could result in dilution to existing shareholders.
 
Company Description and Overview
            
Home Treasure Finders, Inc. was formed on July 28, 2008. The founder, sole director and officer of our company is Corey Wiegand.
 
We are developing a web site which will be a key aspect of our business. As of the date of this prospectus, the site is only partially functional. You may view the site at www.hometreasurefinder.com

We are currently focused on completing our website to support three planned activities:

1.   
Recruiting and training buyer agents
2.   
Forming contracts with listing agents
3.   
Real Estate Investment Mentoring

The best-selling author of several widely acclaimed science books, Machio Kaku speaks to the role of “Buyer’s Agents” in his newly released “Physics of the Future; How science will shape human destiny and our daily lives by the year 2100”.
 
“For example, in the future, you will be able to buy a house on the Internet via your watch or contact lens. But no one is going to buy a house this way, since this is one of the most important financial transactions you will perform in your life. For important purchases like a home, you will want to talk to a human who can tell you where the good schools are, where crime rate is low, how the sewer system works, etc. For this, you want to talk to a skilled agent who adds value.”
 
We believe that Machio’s book offers credible insight into our business. Machio makes predictions based upon his background as a scientist and his familiarity with changes brought on by new technology, that is future changes in our society to be expected from devices now available or in the late stage of development. We believe that this particular quote is relevant to our business plan because Machio states in the quote that the home buyers (100 years in the future) will still want to talk with a local human sales professional, not just enter a purchase agreement over the internet, because of the need to be correctly informed about local issues. Machio believes this can only be done by a local buyer agent. Contact with a human, Machio believes is so important because an investment in a home is likely the largest investment decision made by the average person, and because many of the considerations faced by the buyer are local in nature. Advice concerning those decisions needs to be experienced, informed and locally based to be helpful. We believe we can train our buyer agents to perform locally much better than an internet based advisor. Thus, in Machio’s view, the role of buyer agents in the economy of the future is secure and will always be timely. We conclude that two of our three business activities, number one and number three, as discussed above, are unlikely to become outdated, which confirms to us, the longevity and wisdom of our business plan.

The  Market for Real Estate Investment Mentoring

We believe that the present market for mentor services is small, sporadic, highly fragmented and we do not know of any commercial oversight group that has established any structure or standards. Our understanding of this market is incomplete and based solely on our limited observations, discussions with homeowners, realtors, lenders, homebuyers and home sellers and a very limited number of individuals engaged in real estate mentoring services. Further, we have not conducted any studies or surveys or by other means tried to quantify or predict the volume or quality of competing real estate mentor training that may have come on the market to date, or that in the future, may become available.
 
Present third part listing agents/buyer agents/referrals
 
As of December 31, 2012 and the date of this report, we have no active agreements with listing agents or buyer agents. Consequently, all listings and resulting sale commissions are being generated by our officer and founder, Corey Wiegand. Mr. Wiegand is assisted by various unlicensed individuals on a hourly basis, or otherwise. For example, in the event Mr. Wiegand closes a sale which generates a commission resulting from a referral from another licensed real estate broker, a “referral commission” or “commission split” may be due and payable to the referring broker at closing.
 
As previously stated, we believe our business and the role of “trained” buyer’s agents will always be timely and that as our business grows we can recruit listing agents and buyer agents in the future.
 
 Integrated Voice Response, Call Capture System, Signs and Website
 
We presently place our IVR SIGN in the yards of the homes on which we have a signed listing. We plan in the future to place similar IVR SIGNS  at additional properties as such placements are authorized by a listing agent. Our  IVR signs direct calls from potential buyers to our data base and also to the mobile phone of our founder or an assigned buyer agent:
 
Each time a home buyer sees a FOR SALE sign and the Home Treasure Finder’s IVR SIGN in front of it, the prospective buyer will have two options:
 
1.   
They can elect to call the listing agent directly by calling the number, if any, displayed on the larger FOR SALE sign, or
 
2.   
They may elect to call the 1-800 number displayed on our smaller IVR SIGN.
 
If they elect to call the third party listing agent directly, Home Treasure Finders will not acquire the lead.
 
Presently we operate our website under a short term contract with a third party service. This arrangement provides us a functional generic IVR service for a monthly fee. Ultimately, we plan to integrate our IVR system into the Home Treasure Finder.com website. This will aid us in tracking the incoming leads and potentially save us annually, thousands of dollars in monthly fees.
 
In either case, our IVR system seamlessly transfers the lead to Mr. Wiegand or a designated buyer agent
 
As of the date of this report we are negotiating a supplier agreement to purchase additional signs. We believe additional signs can be purchased from a variety of sources without difficulty.  Our new sign inventory will be stored indoors at our business address, and as of the date of this report, we are planning to deploy our new signs on specific properties, as appropriate.        
 
 
18

 
 
 
 

Our future supply of listing agents and buyer’s agents
A key element of the Home Treasure Finders business plan is to recruit and train buyer’s agents. By marketing to new agents in online job forums, and placing small classified ads on sites like Craiglist.com, we plan to recruit both  new and experienced agents who would like to have access to more prospects.

From conversations with other real estate professionals, we believe that established lead marketing companies sell their lead generation services to agents for a monthly fee. We further believe that our competition is not licensed, and thus cannot be paid a real estate commission. We believe our competition does not provide training to convert leads to sales.

Home Treasure Finders intends to provide leads and training at no cost to those buyer agents who sign our agreement to split gross commission.
 
PLAN OF OPERATIONS AND PROJECTIONS
 
We plan to use the funds we now have, supplemented by loans from management or outside investors, however, we have no present arrangement for financing and we cannot predict if or when funds will become available to us. When we need cash we may find that our management is unable to loan us additional money. Management has made no commitment for additional finance to our business, conditional upon sales performance or otherwise.  In the future, management is under no obligation to provide cash to our business. Even if management elects to provide cash, there could be significant dilution to other investors and the cash provided may still prove insufficient to prevent insolvency and failure of our business. We believe that outside funding will be difficult to obtain without first showing better sales performance and our sales performance may remain depressed until we establish adequate listing agent relationships and recruit and train enough buyer agents.  Consequently, we may fail for lack of cash and any investment into our company may prove a total loss.

If we fail to establish and maintain successful relationships with listing and buyer agents, or experience undisclosed sales or unpaid referral commissions our revenues will suffer.  We are unable to assure the cash flow of our business. Past cash flow has been insufficient to sustain operations and continued negative cash flow will deplete our present cash and may lead to failure of our business and loss all money invested. 
 
Our Potential for Growth.
 
Historically, the Company has been considered a Development Stage Company. As a result of operations and revenues during 2012, the Company has fully commenced its planned operations, generated significant revenues, and is no longer considered a Development Stage Company.
 
 
During the third and fourth quarter of 2012 we generated $28,027 in commission revenue. Based upon closings which have occurred prior to the date of this report, we anticipate higher commission revenue will be reported during our first quarter of 2013. Our plan is to continue to expand commission revenue and thereby generate increased cash from our operating activities.

We are also evaluating a plan to expand our operations to include property management. In the event we are able to complete our plan, we anticipate both immediate revenue and, over the long term, a more predictable monthly cash flow.    

Our operating expenses include significant legal, consulting, accounting and contributed services, all accounted for as expenses. As a consequence, our net losses for the years December 31, 2012 and 2011 total $45,810 and $64,049, respectively.

Results of Operations
 
See the Financial Statements for comparison data to prior periods.
 
We have financed our operations since inception primarily through loans from our founder, cash raised in our completed IPO or through cash and services contributed by our founder, officer and director. As of December 31, 2012, we had $9,408 in cash, and a working capital deficit of $36,337.

Revenues
 
For the period from inception through December 31, 2012 we have generated $28,027 in revenues.  All revenue was generated during the third and fourth quarter of 2012.
 
Total Operation Expenses

Our net loss decreased by $18,239 or 28% to $45,810 from $64,049 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared with the prior year ended December 31, 2011. This was primarily attributed the net effect of the following factors:

1.
General and administrative expenses increased by $14,795, or 41%, to $50,875 for the year ended December 31, 2012 from $36,080 for the prior year ended December 31, 2011. This is attributable to the increase in salary expense, consulting expenses, and realtor expenses as well as other basic general and administrative expenses.

Professional fees decreased by $13,902 or 50% to 14,067 for the year ended December 31, 2012 from $27,969 for the prior year ended December 31, 2011. This is attributable to the one time professional legal and auditing fees incurred with the S-1 registration that were incurred in 2011.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Board of Directors and Shareholders
Home Treasure Finders, Inc. and Subsidiary
Broomfield, Colorado

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Home Treasure Finders, Inc. and subsidiary as of December 31, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over consolidated financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over consolidated financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over consolidated financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall consolidated financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Home Treasure Finders, Inc. and subsidiary as of December 31, 2012 and 2011, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred losses since inception and has a limited operating history, raising substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 4.  The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

HOME TREASURER FINDERS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARY
Notes to the Financial Statements
December 31, 2012 and 2011

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

a.  Organization

Home Treasurer Finders, Inc. (the “Company”) was initially incorporated on July 28, 2008 in the State of Colorado.  The Company has one subsidiary, Ambermax III, Inc.  The Company issued its officers and directors 10,100,000 shares of its no par common stock as payment for $4,586 in fees and expenses incurred as part of organizing the Company.

The Company is in the business of operating a real estate lead referral business and operates in Colorado as a State Licensed "Employing Broker" number 1000021235 issued on February 13, 2012.

b.  Accounting Method

The Company’s financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting.  The Company has elected a December 31 year-end.

c.  Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

d.  Income Taxes

Deferred taxes are provided on a liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences.  Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases.  Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

Notes to the Financial Statements
December 31, 2012 and 2011

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

d.  Income Taxes (Continued)

Net deferred tax assets consist of the following components as of December 31 2012 and 2011:

   
2012
   
2011
 
Deferred tax assets:
           
  NOL carryover
  $ 12,900     $ 8,700  
  Accrued expense
    4,800       -  
                 
 Valuation allowance
    (17,700 )     (8,700 )
 Net deferred tax asset
  $ -     $ -  


The income tax provision differs from the amount of income tax determined by applying the U.S. income tax rate to pretax income from continuing operations for the year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 due to the following:

   
2012
   
2011
 
Book income
  $ (9,000 )   $ (12,600 )
Contributed services
    -       5,600  
Penalties
    100       -  
Accrued expenses
    4,800       -  
                 
  Valuation allowance
    4,100       7,000  
    $ -       -  

At December 31, 2012, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $65,300 that may be offset against future taxable income as long as the “continuity of ownership” test is met.  No tax benefit has been reported in the December 31, 2012 financial statements since the potential tax benefit is offset by a valuation allowance of the same amount.

Due to the change in ownership provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, net operating loss carryforwards for Federal income tax reporting purposes are subject to annual limitations.  Should a change in ownership occur, net operating loss carryforwards may be limited as to use in future years.

Notes to the Financial Statements

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

d.  Income Taxes (Continued)

The Company has analyzed filing positions in all of the federal and state jurisdictions where it is required to file income tax returns, as well as all open tax years in these jurisdictions.  The Company has identified its federal tax return and its state tax return in Colorado as “major” tax jurisdictions, as defined.   All years are open to examination by the IRS.  No reserves for uncertain tax positions have been recorded.

The Company adopted changes issued by FASB which prescribed a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for financial statement recognition and measurement of an uncertain tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. Under the guidance, an uncertain income tax position must be recognized at the largest amount that is more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon audit by the relevant taxing authority.

e.  Loss per Common Share

The Company reports net loss per share using a dual presentation of basic and diluted loss per share. Basic net loss per share excludes the impact of common stock equivalents.  Diluted net loss per share utilizes the average market price per share when applying the treasury stock method in determining common stock equivalents.  At December 31, 2012 and 2011 there were no variances between the basic and diluted loss per share as there were no potentially dilutive securities outstanding.

The computation of loss per common share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 as follows:
 
    For the Year Ended
December 31,
 
   
2012
   
2011
 
Net loss (numerator)
  $ (45,810 )   $ (64,049 )
Shares (denominator)
    11,577,033       11,415,972  
Net loss per share
  $ (0.00 )   $ (0.00 )
 
f.  Development Stage

Historically, the Company has been considered a Development Stage Company. As a result of operations and revenues during 2012, the Company has fully commenced its planned operations, generated significant revenues, and is no longer considered a Development Stage Company.

g.  Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized when services are provided and collection is reasonably assured.

Notes to the Financial Statements

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

h.  Newly Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

The Company has reviewed all recently issued, but not yet adopted, accounting standards in order to determine their effects, if any, on its results of operation, financial position or cash flows.  Based on that review, the Company believes that none of these pronouncements will have a significant effect on its current or future earnings or operations.

i.  Principles of consolidations

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiary.  All material intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.
 
 
NOTE 2 - COMMON STOCK TRANSACTIONS

During the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company issued 300,000 shares of common stock for cash received of $30,000.

During the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company issued 60,800 shares of common stock valued at $0.05 per share for consulting services provided in a prior period.
 
In accordance with ASC 505-50-30 the Company measures the costs of common stock issuances to non-employees for goods or services received based on either the fair value of the equity instruments issued or the fair value of the goods or services received, whichever is more determinable.  Because there has been no public market for our common stock to date, we have measured the cost of our issuances based on the value of the services received.
 

NOTE 3 - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

During the year ended December 31, 2012 an officer and major stockholder deposited $10,425 in the Company’s bank account to cover expenses.  There were also payments of $17,000 made to pay down the related party payable during the year ended December 31, 2012.  The balance of the related party payable was $4,943 and $11,518 as of December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.  This payable is due on demand and has an interest rate of 8%.  Accrued interest on this payable was $937 at December 31, 2012.  Beginning in 2012, the Company began accruing salary of $2,500 per month to the CEO for his services.  The balance accrued at December 31, 2012 was $22,500.

Notes to the Financial Statements
December 31, 2012 and 2011


NOTE 3 - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS (continued)

During the year ended December 31, 2011 officers and major stockholders estimated that they contributed services to the Company valued at $27,490 and contributed rent of $1,050.  Officers and stockholders also contributed services worth an estimated $21,820 for 2010.  Also at December 31, 2011, the Company had a note to an officer and major stockholder for $11,518 to the Company.  This payable is due on demand and has an interest rate of 8%.  No interest had been accrued as of December 31, 2011.
 
To determine the value of contributed services, our officers and stockholders first estimated the number of hours they contributed throughout the year.  They then estimated the value of their services per hour they would be paid if they were employed by another non-related company.  Finally the number of hours contributed were multiplied by the estimated value per hour to determine the total estimated cost of contributed services.
 

NOTE 4 - GOING CONCERN

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company is a development stage enterprise with losses since inception and a limited operating history.  These factors, among others, may indicate that the Company will be unable to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time.

The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of assets and liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.  The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis and ultimately to attain profitability.  The Company intends to seek additional funding through equity offerings to fund its business plan.  There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in raising additional funds.


NOTE 5 - SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

Effective April 1, 2013, all property management activities, revenues and expenses in connection with CW Properties, a property management company owned by the CEO, shall be transferred to a wholly owned subsidiary of Home Treasure Finders, Inc.  All net revenue earned by CW Properties shall be booked as consolidated revenue of Home Treasure Finders, Inc.  
 
Also effective April 1, 2013, the base salary of the CEO will increase from $2,500 to $5,500 per month.

The Company has evaluated all other subsequent events through the date the financial statements were issued, per the requirements of ASC Topic 855, and has determined that there are no events to report.

ITEM 9.  CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS AND ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE

None.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
We carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)). Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered in this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the required time periods and is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all error or fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met.  Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Due to the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. To address the material weaknesses, we performed additional analysis and other postclosing procedures in an effort to ensure our consolidated financial statements included in this annual report have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Accordingly, management believes that the financial statements included in this report fairly present in all material respects our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented.
 
Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Our management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. We have identified the following material weaknesses:
 
As of December 31, 2012, we did not maintain effective controls over the control environment. Specifically, a lack of segregation of duties, a lack of oversight of financial reporting and inadequate documentation of business transactions.  Since these entity level controls have a pervasive effect across the organization, management has determined that these circumstances constitute material weaknesses.
 
Because of these material weaknesses, management has concluded that we did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2012, based on the criteria established in “Internal Control-Integrated Framework” issued by the COSO.
 
No Attestation Report by Independent Registered Accountant
 
The effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2012, has not been audited by our independent registered public accounting firm by virtue of our exemption from such requirement as a smaller reporting company.
 
 
32

 
 
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting through the date of this report or during the quarter ended December 31, 2012, that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
 
Corrective Action
 
Management plans to seek a candidate who would serve as a consultant to assist management in improvements in our disclosure controls and procedures and in our internal control over financial reporting.  We anticipate that the consultant will help to oversee our financial reporting and tracking documentation of all transactions.

ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION.

Director and Officer Compensation

We have no director compensation policy. Directors may be reimbursed for their expenses incurred for attending each board of directors meeting and may be paid a fixed sum for attendance at each meeting of the directors or a stated salary as director. No policy or payment precludes any director from serving us in any other capacity and being compensated for the service. Members of special or standing committees may be allowed reimbursement and compensation for attending committee meetings. During the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 and the period from inception until December 31, 2012 and the date of this report, none of our directors were paid any fees to attend director meetings.
  
EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
 
There were no executives who received annual and/or long-term compensation for more than $100,000 per year at the end of the last completed fiscal year.  Our executive officer did not receive any compensation during the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the period from inception until December 31, 2011.

Beginning January 2012 we agreed to pay Mr. Wiegand a salary of $2,500 per month plus an additional over-ride of 15% based on sales. However, during much of 2012, we experienced a cash shortage and were unable to pay salary to Mr. Wiegand as it became due. As of December 31, 2012 Mr. Wiegand is owed accrued salary totaling $22,500. As of the date of this report, we have not executed a written agreement with Mr. Wiegand in connection with executive compensation.   We plan to pay Mr. Wiegand accrued back salary. We plan to increase Mr. Wiegand’s base salary to $5,500 per month, effective April 1, 2013.
