Cashflow vs appreciation?

1 Reply

For experienced investors out there, can you share how much of your returns is attributed to cashflow and how much due to appreciation? 50/50, 80/20, etc.?

Can you also share when you started and where your investments are locations geographically?

Not sure how statistics over the last 8 years (rising market) will help predict ANYTHING about the next 8 years...

Especially if those "returns" are still theoretical only. ie. No-one will know, UNTIL they sell/cash-in, right?

And do you want responses to include their own primary (ie. no cashflow, just appreciation)?

If so, that will skew the statistics to where they're useless to anyone else anyway. Imho...

Mark Twain phrased it well (quoting Benjamin Disraeli): "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics"!
