How Do You Calculate Your Cash on Cash?

To me it is everything that comes out of pocket. Regardless of whether it is the down payment, closing costs or other fees. Cash out of pocket vs the cash you are left with.

@Nick Keesee - I've seen it done both ways. Sometimes you will see turnkey companies only use the downpayment amount in calculating CoC return.

I include everything ... even down to the $200 on inspections.
