There are literally thousands of different properties in which you could invest at any time. All of them have their different pros and cons. But in deciding which ones to choose, there is really only one question that counts:
or the related question:
If you can't answer these questions with total confidence, not only are
you failing to get the maximum return on our investment, you are at serious risk
of losing money on your investment.
Yet there is really only one way to find the answer:
You could do some quick math on the back of an envelope. That might be fine for quickly screening potential properties to find those worthy of closer inspection. But it would be foolish to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars unless you have done everything you can to maximise your potential profits and eliminate your risk.
And let's not be fooled - property prices can go down as well as up (they went down by 80% in Japan during the 90's!). So, even though, in the west, we have been having a real estate boom for the last dozen years or so, you still need to be careful with every individual investment.
To eliminate your risk you need a realistic assessment of each property. It is called "doing your due dilligence". At the very least, you will need solid answers to questions such as:
... and so on. The more detailed your analysis, the more accurate it is. Accuracy is important, as a single percentage error in your calculations could mean the difference between a proft and a loss. It is as simple as that.
And, to compare potential investments, you need to do the math on each and every one of them. If you do, you will be well informed, and thus able to make a sensible and considered investment decision.
If you don't, then you might as well pin up your five favorites on a wall and throw a dart to pick one of them.
Doing a bit of quick math on the back of an envelope is fine when we are mid-boom. At those times you could probably buy a cardboard box under the railway arches and make a profit on it. But booms don't last for ever and, given the huge amount of leverage that a mortgage can bring, it is very easy to lose your shirt if you get it wrong. Thousands of people did in both Japan, and Britain in the early 1990's. Don't let it happen to you when the next crash comes.
Which is why you need the Real Estate Profit Calculator.
This is a powerful spreadsheet (for Excel 97 or later) that, for just $17, will give you all the above answers, and more, in just seconds:
But that is not all...
You can also use the Real Estate Profit Calculator to quickly research a new geographical area:
By using this tool you can very rapidly screen a neighborhood to see what its potential is. You can do all this before you visit the area - even use it to investigate a different country (such as Hungary and the Czech Republic which are both looking very promising at present).
All you need to do is visit some real estate offices online, pull off the asking prices for a bunch of properties, and plug them into the calculator.
The calculator even allows you to mix-and-match up to five different currencies (e.g. $, £, C$, Euro, and Hungarian Florit) as often you will find prices quoted in different currencies! Just enter the currency and the amount, and it will convert them all to your chosen base currency (which can be any of the five you have chosen).
Finally, there is a very handy little room area calculator. Just put in the dimensions of the rooms and it will calculate the living area, and compare this with your local authority's minimum requirements. In Britain, for example, if you are renting out a building for multiple occupancy, each of the rooms (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen etc) must meet certain minimum sizes. Buy a building without first checking this out and your profit could literally evaporate!
The Calculator is completely customizable. You can change any of the parameters to meet your local needs, you can even (if you really want to) change the formulas. It is your tool to make your real estate decisions easier and more reliable. It even comes ready loaded with sample data so you can see immediately how to use it.
