Return consists of property rental revenue and property appreciation Control over your investment (can add value through improvements, monitor costs, etc) Historically a strong hedge against inflation Tax incentives (interest, closing costs, etc are tax- deductible)
“100 Rule” Approximation –Multiply 1 month’s rent by 100 –Actual value varies depending on building age, location/appreciation rates, etc. Traditional valuation: –Discounted cash flow –Comparative Transaction Multiples ($/SF) Quick Comparisons: “Cap Rate” –Operating Income / Purchase Price, aka (EBITDA / EV) Which one is right? How do you choose?
1.Buy a distressed property in a good location at a fair price for it’s condition –Buy from Trusts, Estates, personal contacts, etc 2.Remodel the building and bring it up to date –There are many fixes you can do that make a big difference without costing a lot (i.e. refinishing floors, repainting, new trim and add crown molding, new fixtures, new appliances, knock out a wall to make it feel bigger, etc) 3.Rent the refinished units at multiples of their previous rent rate
