Especially when maintenance and vacancy are not part of the equa- tion yet. It’s time to calculate:

nance and vacancy and how that impacts the numbers discussed. If the investor as the CEO of their new real estate investment firm makes the right decision with re- spect to buying the right property, and working with the right property management, is it reasonable to think that such a property can be maintained and vacancies weath- ered with 40 percent of the acquisi- tion price? That is $41,980.00 to take care of these contingencies for the 30 years discussed. Many say that can be on the conservative side and the figure is much lower than that. So be it…Let’s be conservative. Subtracting the $41,980.00 from the $221,407.16, the remainder is $179,427.16. That is a great return and that figure does not include the $5,500.00 put back in the inves- tor’s pocket, the $20,990.00 initial investment (still belongs to inves- tor), rent raises, appreciation, tax benefits, or hedge against inflation. When you plug in these figures to evidence, the return any calculator will show is the sum of “ridiculous” as a final figure. Since I like to play in the conser- vative waters, we can beat on these numbers a little more and see what we get. Let’s estimate that the monthly cashflow after the prin- ciple, interest, tax, insurance and property management is $250.00. That is a somewhat unsexy num- ber for a $104,950.00 property.

$5500.00 spent 22-month recovery at $250 per month 338 months left to cashflow (360-22 = 338) $84,500.00 cashflow ($338 months X $250.00) $168,460.00 income ($84,500 cashflow + $83,960.00 paid off loan) $41,980.00 contingency for maintenance and vacancy for 30 years $126,480.00 total income sub- tracting the contingency fund of $41.980.00 All together = $5,500.00 paid back $20,990 still invested in the property

$126,480.00 clear profit $41,980.00 contingency $194,950.00 total

So, we see at even a small income of $250.00 per month this one investment can gen- erate $126,480.00 of profit on top of paying the investor back their $5,500.00 and holding their $20,990.00 in a secure place where their Mr. Hyde consumer cannot take it and buy a depreciating toy. •
