  1. This does not make sense with tax and insurance projection. way too low, in my opinion. so cash on cash much be much smaller. also, model, estimates full 4 room occupancy

  2. 2148 Oliver St is NOT a 4 bedroom. Look it up in Denver Tax Assessors site. Erase my posts all you want, you screwed up. You can't sell it as a 4 bedroom or tell renters it's a 4 bedroom.

  3. If you own the house free and clear and are selling it, how would you qualify the buyer to pay you since you would be essentially acting as the bank? Is their a leniency here because if they default you get the huge down payment and can start over selling it again anyways?

  4. But if you put in $66k and only making $6,360 a year, how is this a good deal if it would take 10 whole years to make back just what was put into it!? There really is no profit margin here till id have grey hairs on my head

  5. Misleading & dangerous. If you honestly thought this is a cash flowing property at full price you would be broke in no time. Vacancy is on thing, property tax is very close, but even if you are managing yourself it still costs you money and valuable time. More of a part time job than investment not factoring in another market crash in the future turning your equity upside down so biggerpockets can come scoop it up after a foreclosure
