You’ll learn the step by step real estate investing method for determining the monthly cash flow and cash on cash return for any rental property investment. This is a must-watch for anyone investing in real estate.

Summary of what you learn:
Learn how to analyze if a rental property is worth buying by calculating the Cash-On-Cash Return and the Return on Investment (ROI) of the rental property. We’ll setup an Excel template, i.e, a rental property calculator which can also be adjusted for all kinds of investment decisions. Use this free Excel workbook to calculate the return on your investment so that your next investment will be a success. Focus on the numbers and make sure you plug in realistic assumptions!

In this video we’ll go through all the required steps to calculate the monthly rental property income by identifying all related revenue and expenses. We will also use the Excel PMT formula to quickly calculate the monthly debt service for the externally financed part of the investment.

In a first step we’ll calculate the Cash-On-Cash Return. This is the ratio (expressed as a percentage) of annual before-tax Cash Flow divided by the equity or own money invested in the property. This figure is useful when consistent monthly cash flows are the most important consideration for the investment. But because it’s based on cash flows it considers the full debt service. So, both the interest and the principal pay down are deducted from the rental revenue. But most investors do not consider the principal payment as an expense. Because by reducing the outstanding principal balance we create equity.

Therefore, we’ll also calculate the Return on Investment or RoI of the property. For this we’ll exclude the principal pay down from the expenses. To do that we’ll use the Excel formulas CUMIPMT and CUMPRINC to split the monthly annuity. The resulting cash flow we divide again by the equity invested in the property.
