Over the last several weeks, I’ve been telling a series of unrelated Real Estate Investor Stories. Each story featured a different investor, their situation, their fears, their strengths, their resources and ultimately how their plan could have worked out based on output from the Real Estate Financial Planner™ software.
Today, I am trying something different. One character, Peter, from Denver… considers a variety of different real estate investing strategies.
In this first story, we meet Peter, a young professional in Denver seeking financial independence.
About this first episode with Peter:
- Peter is starting with $25,000 in savings
- He has a good job making about $72,000 per year
- Lives in Denver, CO but would consider living in or around the Denver area
- Currently rents a property for $2,200 per month (in a future
Scenariohe may consider house hacking but he is not house hacking in the one)
- He is saving about $1,000 per month with the intention of buying rental properties (like the property he is currently renting)
- He plans to put 20% down when he buys his rental properties as soon as he’s saved up enough for a down payment and at least $5,000 in reserves (adjusted for inflation)
What will happen to Peter?
- How long does it take him to buy his first 20% down payment rental?
- Does it have positive cash flow? If so, how much?
- Does that speed up his ability to save for the next property?
- How long does it take for him to save up a down payment for his second 20% down payment rental? His 3rd? 4th? 10th?
- How long does it take him to be able to replace the $5,000 per month he is living on (he is earning $6,000 but saving $1,000 per month)? In other words, how long does it take him to achieve financial independence?
- What does his rental property income (lifestyle) look like in retirement?
