Band of Investment Method:
The "Band of Investment Method" is a technique used in real estate to figure out a property's value by considering the income it generates through rent and the costs associated with the loans taken to purchase the property. It's like weighing the money you'll make from renting it out against the costs of buying and owning it.
Imagine you want to buy an apartment building for $500,000. You plan to get a loan to buy it, and you'll have to pay 5% interest on that loan. You also expect to make $50,000 a year by renting out the apartments. By using the Band of Investment Method, you can compare the rental income and the loan costs to see if the building is worth buying.
