Investment Property Analysis Spread Sheet

This product, prepared in Microsoft Excel (PC), evaluates income and expenses, including reserves for replacements.. It provides key ratios including cap rates both with and without reserves based on a sales price your buyer is considering, and it determines property value or sales price based on your market cap rate. It calculates basic cash-on-cash returns on investment, before-tax cash flows, and includes the provision for depreciation and after-tax cash flow. Maximum allowable financing for commerical propeties and apartment buildings with five or more units, including estimated closing costs, is calculated based on the income analysis and your "go-to" lender's loan program and guidelines, Essentially, all you must enter are the income and expense data, plus your lender's loan details, and the form does just about everything else. If the property's rents are lower than market, it allows you to include "market rents" to see a "what-if" scenario with the higher rents. And it provides for an analysis for purchasing or for refinancing. Since it offers so much, it includes a tutorial that easily walks you through the entire process.  And, finally, it features a five-year operating proforma with internal rates of return, allowing you and your clients to compare a real estate investment with others, whether real estate or no. ​​
