On episode 4 of From the Nest Podcast, Chris and I are analyzing a deal with our first rental property. We discuss the different ways to analyze a deal and why we felt this would be a valuable income property for our investment portfolio.
INCOME PROPERTY STATS
- Asking price: $99,900
- Purchase Price: $87,000
- Bedrooms: 3
- Bathrooms: 1.5
- Square Footage: 1,290
- School District: good
ANALYZING THE DEAL
CAP RATE = NET OPERATING INCOME / PROPERTY VALUE
- Net Operating Income (NOI) = annual gross income – annual expenses
- Annual expenses: Property Expenses, maintenance, taxes, insurance
- Property Value (what we bought the property for): $87,000
- Annual Gross Income (annual rent): $14,400 ($1,200/month)
- Annual Expenses: $3,700
- Taxes: $1,300
- Insurance: $1,200
- Maintenance: $1,200
- NOI: $14,400 – $3,700 = $10,700
- CAP RATE: $10,700/$87,000 = 12%
We spent about $10K on renovations for this property which included new appliances, a brand new kitchen and a fresh paint job. To see the full story behind this home and all of the before photos, check out this post.

What we would change with our renovation
The one thing we would change if we could do this renovation over again – the flooring! In theory, this floor seems like it would work great, but because it is an old house and the floors are not completely level, the floor tiles do not snap together perfectly and are not completely flush in all areas of the kitchen.
Capitola Silver Life Proof floor tiles – we would not recommend using this in an old home with floors that are not level.
