Property Investment Tool: Lead with the numbers

You’re preparing to show several properties to an investment buyer who has identified their desired property types and the ROI (Return On Investment) they are looking for in their next purchase. You know the area well, and understand the best potential properties for an investment purchase. Why not use Realtors Property Resource (RPR) to create a detailed financial analysis of each property? You can then provide the comprehensive information in an easy-to-understand report, then make any adjustments after viewing the properties.

RPR Investment Tool

Using RPR, you search for a specific property and from the Properties Detail Page, you select the link titled “Property Analysis for Investors.” This opens the Investor Analysis Tool. Building the analysis is easy. Start by choosing the type of analysis – rent, resell or live-in – then select the types of scenarios you want to compare – aggressive, moderate, or conservative.

Scenarios have been pre-configured for you using typical assumptions for the subject property and the type of analysis. Using your local market expertise, and the information provided to you from your client, you easily change the assumptions necessary by moving the corresponding slider and modify your variables by clicking on the “Add or Remove Variables” button. You can enhance the information in the reports by opening the “Graphs” dropdown in the upper right corner to view different types of charts and trends related to your analysis.

Now you’re ready to click on the “View Spreadsheet” button in the upper left corner of the page. You copy your complete analysis, including cash flow, cap rate and more into Excel. From there you print each scenario and attached your branded cover-page with contact information, and add that to the Property Details Report your created for each property. Now as your Investor client tours each property, you give them a detailed financial analysis which they can use to evaluate their interest and desired investment strategy for their potential purchase.

      Hi Joyce – Using RPR to search that area. Then click over to map view. You’ll see some drawing tools that will let you get very specific about your search area. Then make sure on the left-hand side in the faceted search area only search “Distressed Properties”…that will do it!

    I was trying to research some distress properties for one investor and all the properties that shows as pre-foreclosure I reach each one and none of them were in that face. Some of them were back in 2011 but they are reflecting in RPR as distressed. ORRR… I might be doing something wrong..
