If your repair estimates and time to sell are as you say then this looks like a great deal. I put the numbers in my personal calculator and came up with the exact same numbers. The only thing I put in my analysis is 3% for unexpected expenses. At 3%, you would lose \$7,500. In addition to your expenses to sell the property you have to factor termite inspections, repairs, concessions and discounts you are asked for after the Offer To Purchase is accepted. Unfortunately, these calculations are not on the BP calculator. i came up with \$50,900 after taking out the \$7500. Still a terrific deal.

I would probably buy and hold this property. Finance the entire deal. \$126,000 + Repairs + Closing Costs = \$169,000. Finance with \$40,000 down. Rent for \$1500+ per month and you make 205% ROI with an annual cash flow of \$4,947. This gives you average ROI of 46% for the first 5 years. Then you make even more money when you factor depreciation and appreciation. I don't like to give up the \$5,000 annual income when I am not positive that I will find many more properties. It is always great to have some properties you hold for cash flow and then use that money for buying other properties.
