Rental Properties: 2013 Recap

Rehab-2

We are nearing the end of 2013! It’s crazy to think how fast time has flown by this year… At this time last year, I owned one property. Now, I have four locked down, and a fifth rental that is currently under contract. As the rentals accumulate, it’s getting more and more difficult to keep track of everything. Hopefully this update will help summarize all the important information.

Numbers Recap

At this time, Rental Property #4 is just getting started (second month collecting rent), so I decided not to run the numbers yet. To summarize, the three other rental properties are generating the following:

Cash Flow:

Rental Property #1: $409.93/month
Rental Property #2: $246.63/month
Rental Property #3: $917.31/month

Total Cash flow: $1,573.87/month

In addition to the cash flow, the rentals have paid down principal in the following amount:

Principal Paydown:

Rental Property #1: $370.89/month
Rental Property #2: $320.00/month
Rental Property #3: $156.72/month

Total Principal Paydown: $847.62/month

Total Return:

Rental Property #1: $780.82/month
Rental Property #2: $566.64/month
Rental Property #3: $1,074.04/month

Total Return: $2,421.49/month

In terms of pure numbers (not prorated), we have the following:

Total Gross Rent Collected: $52,898.33
Total Cash Flow: $11,478.73
Total Principal Paydown: $7,794.32
Total Return: $19,273.05

Summary

The numbers shown above are the actual 2013 results for each rental property. When I run my own projected numbers, I tend to be more conservative. To give you an idea, my monthly net cash flow estimates (2014) for four rental properties is $1,300/month. In actuality, Rentals #1-3 generated $1,573.87/month for 2013. However, the sample size is just for one year, and I am a firm believer that rental expenses are unpredictable, so it’s better to err on the side of caution. All it takes is one big expense to wipe away the cash flow…

2013 was a successful year. The cash flow numbers were great, and the principal paydown is just icing on the cake. The rentals are returning $847.62/month in combined principal reduction, which is not trivial (this will really add up over the years). Total return (cash flow + principal paydown) is $2,421.49/month. Over time, the principal reduction will keep on increasing as more of the debt gets repaid. Another reason why I’m such a big fan of utilizing leverage on multiple properties… The principal paydown gets enhanced by the number of properties owned, and this reduction is what will ultimately increase your net worth over time. “What you owe today, you’ll be worth tomorrow.”

When everything is done are you going to move to Hawaii? This seems to be your ideal place for what I see. I’m done with properties until 2015 but you never know. Happy holidays.

That’s awesome FI. Harnessing the power of leverage to produce, and greatly increase, really nice cash flow. Good work! Enjoy that trip of yours too. The high is nearly 80 here today, which drives my wife nuts. I however, love it.

These are excellent numbers. Considering (and correct me if I am wrong) those are generated with other people’s money right? You had some down-payment, but generally using leverage overall. I like it. The income is impressive.
