Learn about two very important metrics for income-producing investments, especial for multi-family and multi-unit properties.
- In this lecture we're going to talk about…a couple of concepts that really only apply…to income producing assets,…so rental properties would be one of them.…These concepts, the yield and the CAP rate,…doesn't really apply to fix and flips…because it has to do with the income…that a property produces.…Let's look at what they are.…Let's look at income properties first.…So, for an income property it may look something like this,…where you invest a certain amount of money…and then you collect some rent every year.…
Hopefully, they're growing, but in this example,…let's just say every year…you're collecting something consistent, okay?…The yield of an income property is basically the…rent in a given year divided by your total investment.…The yield can be different…depending on which years the rent that you're using;…the rent in year one may be a little bit lower…than the rent in year seven.…So, when you are using yields…to compare different rental income properties,…make sure you're comparing them apples to apples…
