Although, its great to have a cash flowing strategy, let’s talk about the double meaning of “cash flow”.

Version 1 –

One aspect of cash flow, is the traditional method everyone is used to. This is your profits each month, being net income minus debt service. Most people will think of this monthly income perspective when they hear “cash flow”.

Version 2 – 

However, there is another form of cash flow that is equally important in order to sustain the first version of cash flow. This is where you can implement investment strategies that provide a return on investment that is liquid. These are particularly large lump sums of cash flow. This cash flow will directly support the purchasing of cash flowing assets.

Version 2 Example –

Fix and flips, wholesaling and whole-tailing are examples of receiving a return that is liquid and does not include the holding of any debt service. 

These investment methods directly support your ability to perform version 1 of the investment strategy mentioned above.

Afterall, you need a 20% or 25% down payment for any performing asset.

  • If you are using the BRRRR strategy, and you are receiving all of your cash invested back, you can accomplish executing version 1 and version 2 simultaneously. 
  • However, every BRRRR strategy may not return all of your cash invested, and there will be deals that are good long-term investments that won’t require the BRRRR strategy.

Being prepared to execute any strategy, based upon the opportunity presented, would be ideal. 

Your flexibility and capability to perform is based upon your preparation and understanding.

Prepare accordingly.

Now, let’s get into how you can reach your goals mathematically implementing what we’ve covered so far.

Master the mathematical principles behind real estate investing and learn how to create a strategic plan to achieve your income goals with precision.

After you’ve structured your business to be in the best possible position to perform any strategy mentioned so far, you are ready to begin executing your long-term goals.

Whether you have monthly cash flow goals or net worth goals, a debt payoff strategy must be included in your long-term plan. 

Being too highly leveraged is not a good long-term plan for retirement. Your debt paydown strategy is very important.

Be sure to incorporate this into your plan.

See this acquisition example –Β 

Let’s say you purchase a $200,000 asset that brings in gross monthly income of $3,000. You also continue to buy assets with this same criteria, in addition to the data shown below.

  • You pay a down payment of 20%. 
  • Your interest rate is 6.5% over 30 years.
  • Your transactional costs are 4%. 
  • Your operational expenses are 40% of your effective gross income. 
  • Your vacancy rate is 5%.

Based upon these numbers, your cash flow would be $7,898 per year, per property.

  • This is $658 of cash flow per month, per property.

Now, let’s target reducing and evaluating your debt leverage…

  • For every 6 properties you buy, the target will be, to have the first property paid off.

How you allocate cash toward principal is your choice. 

However, if you pay half of the cash flow from all six properties toward the first property, the first property would be paid off in 5.5 years.

  • This means $329 (half of $658) multiplied by six properties, is $1,974 per month going toward principal only of the first property.
  • With this strategy the first property would be paid off in 5.5 years.
