**The Top 8 Real Estate Calculations Every Investor Should Memorize**

- Monthly Rent / Total Price of Property. Example:
- Annual Rent / Total Price of Property.
- Net Operating Income / Debt Service.
- Cash Flow / Cash In Deal.
- Operating Income X 0.5 = Probable Operating Expenses.
- Strike Price = (0.7 X After Repair Value) – Rehab.

Considering this, how do you calculate real estate investments?

**To calculate the property's ROI:**

- Divide the annual return by your original out-of-pocket expenses (the down payment of $20,000, closing costs of $2,500 and remodeling for $9,000) to determine the ROI.
- ROI: $5,016.84 ÷ $31,500 = 0.159.
- Your ROI is 15.9%.

One may also ask, what is the 2% rule in real estate?

The **2**% **rule** says that for a rental property investment to be “good”, the monthly rent should be equal to or higher than **2**% of the purchase price. For a $100,000 property, the monthly rent collected needs to be $2,000/month or higher to meet this guideline.

**Yield** definition **Yield calculations** are worked out by dividing the annual rental income on a **property** by how much it cost to buy. For example: Gross **yield** = annual rental income (weekly rental x 52) / **property** value x 100.
