A quick look at the math will demonstrate that purchasing for cash flow works. Let’s start with the purchase price. You decide to purchase a property for ,000,000. You deposit 0,000 as your down payment and earn a 10% cash on cash return on your investment. This investment will pay you ,000 in the first year and as the rent increases, so will your cash on cash return. Plus, while you’re holding the property, your 0,000 loan is amortizing or being reduced by your rental income. This means that you’re recovering your down payment while you pay down the debt.
