Can this strategy be optimized to generate 100K per year?

Good day BP,

I am looking to generate about 100k per year from real estate investments and wondering if the plan below can be optimized to get to that goal sooner.


1. Starting capital $400,000 invested in 12% private equity and syndications with 8% preferred + 15% projected IRR in 5 years.

2. No additional money is contributed for this analysis during the 5 years to keep the math simple.

3. Taxes are not factored in again to keep the math simple.

4. First syndication folds in year 5 generating capital gains, which is why the Year 5 number is high.

Investment Capital Invested COC Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5
Year 1 Principal - Private Money 200000 12% 24000 24000 24000 24000 24000
Year 1 Principal - Syndications 200000 8% 16000 16000 16000 16000 86000 Syndication folds - IRR 15%
Reinvest Year 1 Cashflow - Private Money 40000 12%
4800 4800 4800 4800
Reinvest Year 2 Cashflow - Private Money 45000 12%

5400 5400 5400
Reinvest Year 3 Cashflow - Syndication 50000 8%

4000 4000
Reinvest Year 4 Cashflow - Syndication 50000 8%

Year End Cashflow

40000 44800 50200 54200 128200
Year 5 Ending Equity (Capital Invested +Year 5 Cashflow)



1. What ways can the strategy be optimized to reach the 100K goal sooner? 

2. If I have access to more money, up to $1mm how does this strategy change? (a lot of money is tied up in primary home equity)

3. Is owning a small multi family generates better cash flows?

4. Is partnering with someone as a money partner to co-sponsor a deal better way to go assuming I can find someone in the near future to work with.

Thanks for your feedback.

@Andy Church If I had $400k and 5 years to reach my intended goal I would Look for a value add multi family in the $1M asking range that has potential to be worth much more with projected stabilized NOI.. Leverage most of the $400k and use the rest for rehab.. Once you stabilize the property you should be closer to your intended goal.. I would give 24 months to rehab, stabilize and have a trailing 12 for lenders to qualify for refi.. Once you cash out you should get most of your capital back and I would stick that cash into what you mentioned earlier that yields 12%.. that should fill up the rest of the cash flow to reach $100k a year.. Good luck
