Should Peter Put 20%, 25% or Nomad™ with 5% Down Payments?

Previously, we met Peter in Denver who was considering 20% down payments to buy 10 rental properties. He also considered 25% down payments to get a slightly better interest rate and better cash flow. But, another option is for him to Nomad™ with 5% down payments (with Private Mortgage Insurance).

Now, we are comparing which of the three options will get him to financial independence fastest.

Some reminders about Peter's situation in these  Scenarios:

  • 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
  • When he Nomads™ he will buy a property and NOT pay the $2,200 per month in rent… instead he will pay all the expenses of the property.
  • 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 5% down when he buys his rental properties as a Nomad™ as soon as he's saved up enough for a down payment and at least $5,000 in reserves (adjusted for inflation)
