Investment Analysis
Navigating the tools that will work best for you
When analyzing a real estate investment there are several tools availble to you and with so many to choose from, it can be confusing to know which one to use.  I like to use a combination of tools, since I have yet to  find one comprehensive tool that takes all of the costs and benefits into account.  Below are three examples of an analysis on a 4 unit property.  Click on each photo below for an analysis from a different perspective.


Get Inspired
 

I get inspiration from reading books and blogs that give me new ideas and reinforce what I already know.  Bigger Pockets is a website that was introduced to me by my good friend Tom and it has excellent articles and discussions for beginning and seasoned investors alike.   https://www.biggerpockets.com/renewsblog/category/personal-finance-2/
Online research is good, but live seminars are great!  One of my favorites is Tom Lundstedt.  I have been to several of his seminars and have sent clients as well.  Check out his seminars and go!  http://www.tomlundstedt.com/seminars.html  
Books are also a great way to educate yourself and get inspired.  The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson was given to me by a client and it is my current favorite.  I highly recommend it.   http://slightedge.org/
