July 4th, by the numbers!

“On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.”

Property Analysis

Here’s an example of some Property analysis Guidelines, make sure you’re comfortable with the Guidelines YOU use! Mike

1.Price/Square Foot

2.Capitalization Rate

Cap Rate = Net Operating Income/Purchase Price (Value)


Gross Rental Income (month)

  • -Vacancy
  • -Real Estate tax
  • -Insurance
  • -Maintenance
  • -Condo/HOA fee


NOI/month x 12 _____________NOI Annually

NOI/Purchase Price (Value) = Cap

3.Rate of Return

Net Income/Investment = RoR

4.Income Approach GRM

Monthly Rent/Value = GRM

285 Lynn Shore Drive Apartment #512, 01902 3 Rooms, 1 Bedroom, 1 F Bath 602 SF (April 17, 2020)

(7%, 30yr Fixed, 20% down = $984.12/month PI)

  1. Price/Square Foot

$184,900. List price/602. SF = $307/SF

There were 26 Sold Listings within 0.50 mile radius & within the past 6 months. $190-392k Average 903SF Average Sale $246,354.


2. Capitalization Rate

Cap rate = Net Income/Value

$2500. monthly rent

-$453. Condo/HOA fee

-$169.62 RE Tax

-$250. Vacancy & Maintenance

$1627.38 NOI/month x 12 = $19,528.56 NOI/year

$19,528.56/$184,900. = .106, 10.6 Cap

(Lower the Cap, Lower the risk, Higher the Cap, Higher the risk)

3. Rate of Return RoR

RoR = Net Income/Investment

$19,528.56/$36,980.00 (20% of $184,900. down payment) = 52.8% Rate of Return.

4. Income Approach – GRM

$2500/month/$184,900. purchase = 0.014 1.4 Gross Rent Multiplier. 1% is good in our area!

5. I like the Debt Service Ratio for quick numbers. It allows me to make Counter offers on the Spot! which is VERY Importante’!

Rent/Debt Service

$2500. rent/$984.12 PI +$435.Condo fee + $169.62 RE tax = 1.56 Quickly shows a bank you can make payments every month, collecting that rent!
