Gone are the days of:
- Buying unprofitable properties because you did not run the numbers — or worse, because you ran the numbers wrong
- Getting stuck with loser, cash-flow-sucking dogs of properties that don't put money in your pocket each month
- Worrying about a math error somewhere in your spreadsheet
- Taking hours to analyze each property just to find out it is a non-deal
The Evolution of The Spreadsheet
When my best friend Brian Williams first put together The World's Greatest Real Estate Deal Analysis Spreadsheet™ he wanted to make sure it met four criteria:
- It was quick and easy to use for analyzing potential properties he wanted to buy.
- It was accurate, with no math errors.
- It could model basic buy-and-hold purchases of single-family homes.
- It could also handle more sophisticated strategies, such as buying multi-family properties, apartments, retail space, and industrial properties, as well as lease-options, subject-to, partnerships, and more
So he built the very first version to use for himself and began using to start buying rental properties. The more he used it, the more improvements he made.
Then, we began to teach deal analysis classes for real estate investors using the spreadsheet, and we got feedback from a wide array of real estate investors, including both first-time newbie investors and sophisticated, battle-hardened apartment buyers. Brian made improvements and used it himself. Others began to use the spreadsheet and shared what they loved about it and what Brian could do to make it better.
Brian toiled for hours and hours and hours over a period of years to perfect The World’s Greatest Real Estate Deal Analysis Spreadsheet™. With each improvement, he sought feedback from many of the 1,400+ member Northern Colorado Real Estate Investor Group.
Now you can download and use it for yourself — completely free using the download button above!
How to Use The Spreadsheet
The World's Greatest Real Estate Deal Analysis Spreadsheet™ allows you to easily see how your cash-on-cash return on investment is impacted when you need to make an offer above asking price or if you’re fortunate enough to be able to negotiate a below-asking-price “lowball offer”.
The table above shows you what happens to cash-on-cash return on investment for every 1% increase or decrease in purchase price from list price, as well as for each $50 variation in rent above and below your default rent estimate in your analysis.
