property management: Things Tenants Do # 105 Consistently Inconsistent - 11/01/12 12:35 AM
We have been unwrapping a recent purchase of a 4 plex with a gross cap rate (the annual projected rental income of $31,200 divided by the purchase price of $155K) of 20.12% to see the results of the tenants performance on our return of investment in the short term.
When we look at the actual rents that we inherited due to the leases that were in place when we closed on the building we find that instead of each of them being at $650 a piece for a income of $31200 we have 1 unit empty (keep reading to find out … (1 comments)
