Help Reading BRRRR Calculator Results Page

2 Replies

Hi everyone! I'm newbie to RE as well as BP but more ready than ever. I understand that virtually every house has a number that makes it an amazing deal so I need help with recognizing a good deal when one is staring me in the face.

Specifically, I need help understanding the terms/phrases used on the BRRRR calculator results page to know what needs tweaking on the previous pages to get my desired results.

I've watched Brandon Tuner's youtube video on the BRRRR calculator and even attended his webinar for newbies. Not much time is spent on the results page as I would like.

I've seen Brandon Turner enter his intial information, get a result, mention a few things on the result page like ROI or CF (that weren't favorable) then go back to the previous pages making tweaks here and there then re-running the calculator to update the results. He'll do this toggling several more times until the Results page sing Sweet Victory!!!

I need to understand that entire results page so I can estimate what should go up or down on the prior pages. Practice doesn't make perfect....Perfect practice makes perfect :). Please recommend any books, forums, podcasts, or sites that could help me in breaking down this page.

Welcome to bigger pockets  @IBEJesus O Prince and good luck with your REI journey. When I wholesale properties to investors .I look for cash flow and force appreciation getting properties for 50 to 75 cents on the dollar. That is one way I determine if a deal is good or not for me. My question for you is what are you looking for strictly cash flow , appreciation or both ?

Hi Aziz and thanks for such a quick reply! Being a newbie I had to research Forced Appreciation which lead me to needing to understand the difference between CF and NOI. So to answer you question, I'm looking for both!
