4 Replies

So I have 2 duplexes near downtown that I'm interested in. I'll do them both in separate posts but here's the first one.


3.5% down

Interest rate at 3.75%

30 year


2 bed 1 bath each side


GROSS income - $1,325

MORTGAGE (insurance and taxes included) -

(Tenant is responsible for all utilities) EXCEPT owner pays sewer and trash.
I put down $50 for that.

VACANCY 10% - $135


CAP EX 5% - $120

PM 10% - $135

Not sure I got the cash on cash and cap rate right but this is was I got;


CAP RATE - I got 84%

Let me now what you guys think. I feel like I did it right but would ya'lls thoughts and opinions. Thank you

@Jonathan Perez After you subtract all expenses ($1220) from Rent ($1325) you have $105/month or $1,260 annually. This CoC return is 32%.

Cap rate is NOI/Value of Asset. Sooo $1,260/$110,00 in this case is only 1.1%

If your numbers are accurate for your area, then that's what your numbers would look like. Although it looks like your repairs and maintenance are only 5% of your Rent.. (usually recommended to include 10-15%, same with CapEx.... But then again, you are the expert in your own farm area.)

Any further questions, just let me know!

@Kyle Scofield thanks for responding man, I appreciate that.

So of course these numbers are at the purchase price of 110k, I should purchase at a price that obviously makes more sense. 110k would be over paying, I'm assuming right? I just ran it really quick on a purchase price of 95k and the cash flow went up from 105 to 125.

I do plan on house hacking it like you did as well.

Cap rate is yearly net operating income dived by purchase price.

Net operating income equals gross income minus expenses before debt service.

So ($1325-$410) times 12 divided by $110,000 equals 9.98% cap rate.

Since I'm on mobile, those numbers were from memory (can't see your post as I type), but you now have the equation.
