running the numbers

i always hear people talking about when they look at a property, they run the numbers to see if it is good to buy plus to see what affer to make
can someone give me an example of this or give me a calculator to analyse new property

Hi liquidmoney,

Instead of retyping the original post I wrote about how to run the numbers, just go to the Birddogging forum and look for a post titled “Running the numbers.” I don’t know how to cut and paste. Hopefully that info will be helpful to you. Good luck in your endeavors.


on Fix and flip I use this, sell amount after fix
closing costs
holding costs
realtors costs

Buy and hold is more just payment only!

For buy and hold, check out the Cash Flow Analysis spreadsheet – just one of the Real Estate Forms at the “Resources” tab on this site.
