[Calc Review] Help me analyze this deal

2 Replies


Honestly it looks like a huge loss, based on your calculations provided you are losing hundreds of dollars each month.

It says with the posting that two of the units are rented at $800 a month and didn't provide information on the other as to what you can expect. Based on the assumption that you can get $800 a month for them it will put you at breaking even when cash-flowing. Are you looking at house hacking this?

There isn't a lot of information you posted to provide a better understanding of what you are trying to do. Putting 5% down could prove to be difficult to nearly impossible if you don't intend on living in the property yourself.

I didn't see anything in there for you calculating for appreciation either, and that may definitely be something you will want to account for in your area.

If you provide a more complete story of what you are thinking I'm certain you will get more feedback to help you.

Best of luck.
