Property Operating Expenses
First Year Returns
I used the proceeds from a cash out refinance on rental properties that we had bought a few years ago to take advantage of the significantly low interest rates on those properties. As a result, we wanted to redeploy the cash out proceeds into additional rental property.
This one was very easy since it was a new build, turnkey property, and the expected performance was quite good! I was able to not use any of our own cash and procure a cash flowing rental property that is brand new (expecting pretty low maintenance for a few years) in an area that is experiencing very good growth! The next set of units for sale were already almost $20,000 more than what we bought this for – – instant equity!
