[Calc Review] Help me analyze this deal

The return numbers look decent. What is the estimate value if you fix and flip? I suspect the high cost(30K) of renovation and time it takes 3 months is NOT meant for a rental.  Tenants need to pay their own utilities.  No PM in America will work for 2%. Typ fee is 6-10%.  It looks like you are opening an opportunity for a lawsuit with no front safety rails. Check your local code.

@Joel Morel your numbers make no sense. pre you will have 50% vacancy. 3 months rent out of 6 months. ARV of $108500. Post cash out refi will be 70% of ARV or $75950.Vacancy 8%, repairs 7%, and capex 8%. PM will be 10% or higher. On a sfh you shouldn't have any utility bills, post rehab. Might want to include insurance on the property.

Hello Sam, 

Thank you very much for reaching out and breaking down this property for me. I will definitely consider rehab as oppose to holding on to it . My intentions were to hold on to the property However you brought some clarity . I am new this game Trying figure out different angles so I really appreciate your thoughts . 

Sam, to answer your question . The property requires a new roof , floors and heating /cooling system . I am estimating about 45k for this duplex . I didn’t consider rails so I assume that will add to the cost as well . 


Thank you for reaching out. 

I am a bit intimidated by this property because of the amount of work that it is requiring as a first investment property and not having the skills sets to manage a lot of the fixes on my own . I am waiting on the property report from my realtor which should allow me to lunch in these numbers a lot more accurately. Thank you for your advice . 

@Joel Morel you have to tag people if you want a response. Type the @ sign and start typing their name it will populate outside the comment box. double click on their name. i can't tell if you should buy this or not. your numbers make no sense. In the pre refinance part you say the ARV is $108000.. but your refinance is $160000 which at 75% of ARV would be $213000. Your cost for vacancy,repairs, and capex are 9%. I use 23%. PM should be 10%. Rerun with better numbers and then i can give an opinion.
