A very important concept—the time value of money—is introduced here. This is the foundation of all financial analysis in real estate. Pay close attention.
- Let me ask you a quick question.…Would you rather get $100 right now…or get $100 a year from now?…All things equal, the answer's really clear, right?…You would want $100 right now.…Why would you wait a year for that?…But let's look at another example.…Would you rather take $100 right now…or $1000 in 10 years?…Now it's kind of more difficult.…
Maybe some of you might still choose…to get the $100 now, but some of you…may be willing to wait 10 years…in order to get $10,000,…and the questions that might go through some of your minds…may be well, who's guaranteeing it,…and do I have confidence that the person who's…going to offer me the 1000 in 10 years…is actually going to be able to fulfill on that request?…When investors think about the profits…coming from an investment,…that's one of the things that they've got to grapple with.…
It's not just how much they're going to make…from an investment, but it's when…they're actually going to receive those profits.…And one of the ways that investors…account for that and be able to factor both of these…
