Investment Analysis

Would you like to know the basics of determining a property's "income potential"?  Keep in mind that today, serious investors need to look at long term growth, and not rapid appreciation in value.

If long term growth is your objective, then regardless of which residential project you're considering, you will need to know the six basics of determining a rental property's profit or loss performance.  You will need to know the 6 common expenses, including taxes, insurance, and utility costs (TIMMUR) .  You will need to know the market percentages to calculate the most common income and expenses in order to find out your annual pre-tax return.

Let's say you would like to get a 7% annual return on your new investment property  Find out how much you should offer, based on the "IRV" formula: Income, rate of return, and value.


And, very importantly, financing and down payment requirements will also affect your rate of return: the more cash you put in your down payment, the higher your rate of return on the investment.
