Why buy?

In most good income property deals these days, you can expect to make between 5-8% on your money, if you can afford a conventional loan. If you put down $100,000 cash (20% of purchase price), you’ll get between $5,000 and $8,000 cash back every year. That’s pretty nice on its own.

The exceptional thing about buying leveraged property is that your rents are also covering your mortgage, so in addition to the cash in your hand, you’re earning equity in your building. That means in 30 years, you’ll have earned an additional $400,000 bonus in your building. ¬†And that’s not counting appreciation.
