Real Estate Investment: New Cash Flow Calculator Tool

One of the most important things I teach in my real estate investment classes is to do your due diligence. This point can't be stressed enough. I teach all of my students how to do a cash flow analysis and give them the tools to do it as they research investment properties. All too often I have a student who approaches me after class asking for help with an investment property they did not do their due diligence on and now need help.

A new online tool is now available as a resource for investors who seek greater transparency in real estate investing. The tool allows investors to select an initial investment amount which then visually displays their potential returns over the lifetime of the investment. 

To see how the tool can work for you, visit Acquire Real Estate's website. If you have questions on due diligence and would like to speak with someone at Investment Resource, we invite you to contact us by email or phone. We enjoy empowering the real estate investor and are here to help!

Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Hotel Sold

2015: Orange County Hotel Sales Dollars Doubled:

Fewer hotels sold for more money last year in Orange County.

Twenty-seven hotels sold in 2015—down by three properties from 2014—but they traded hands for $1.75 billion—up 115% from the previous year’s $816 million, according to numbers from Irvine-based Atlas Hospitality Group.

Atlas said 2016 sales volume will fall about 25% from 2015 numbers as larger buyers pull back from the market and more hotels are available for purchase.

The consultant and broker said financing would increase by up to 1 percentage point and it expects the median price per room to decline by up to 10%.

The median price per room in Orange County last year was $135,000, an increase of about 12%.

The average price per room was $271,000, up 64%.

The $426 million deal for the Ritz‐Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point was the priciest local hotel buy in 2015.

Orange County’s total dollar volume in 2015 was 18% of California’s $9.5 billion in hotel sales.

“By any measure … it was a record‐breaking year,” Atlas said.
