An example of a typical goal and how it is achieved follows.
A newly married couple has started their family and have a new baby. They have a financial goal to invest for their baby's college fund. They purchase a Single Family Residential property that will be an attractive rental. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with a 2 car garage.
Investment Property Purchased at $95,000
$23,750 = $25% Down + $2,881 in Closing Cost and $5000 in Repairs
PI = $382, I = $27, T = $98, PITI = $509
Gross Operating Income (GOI) = $1045.00 with a vacancy rate of .05%
Net Operating Income (NOI) = $720
Cap Rate (Capitialzation Rate) = 9.09% or .0909
Debt Service Ratio (DSR) = 1.41 (should be greater than 1.2)
Cash Flow = Monthly $536, Yearly $6,432.00
Cash-on-Cash Return (CCR) = 20.3%
With a positive cash flow and not considering appreciation, the return on their investment over 18 years will net them $115,776.00. They have achieved their goal.
In addition, they have now begun to establish generational wealth and have a "cash flow" producing asset. Through the means of 1031 Exchange they now have a vehicle to continue to acquire properties and defer taxes. One additional benefit is that IRA savings can be moved into Self-Directed IRAs and used to purchase real estate.
