I miss calculated on CoCRoI.. it should be about 3.4%

@Ivan Chen congratulations on the rehab! With your cash on cash return being at 1%, do I asume correctly that you own it free and clear? Any thoughts about financing it to boost your CoC?

@Ivan Chen congrats man.  Seems like alot cash invested for $3100 per month.  But I guess there is room for appreciation here too.  All the best man. With that much cash invested are you able to continue to grow?  Would you at least break even with 80% leverage on the property?  I know that many people do not agree with obtaining debt on their investments but I'm just thinking of the time value of money and the current inflation rate when I see these sort of deals.
