When searching through the plethora of real estate investment options available, it can be difficult to narrow down all of the options. It is said that it takes looking at 1,000 potential properties to find one deal. One of the first ways I begin to eliminate potential property investments is through using the 1% rule. Utilizing this rule only takes a quick moment and will help figure out if a potential property is worth deeper investigation.
The 1% rule simply states, in order to have the possibility of a positive cash flow the monthly rent should be greater than 1% of the total cost of purchase and repairs.
For example, a property that cost $100,000.00 to purchase and renovate should have a minimum monthly rent of $1,000.00. The 1% rule is a guideline to help determine if the property is worth a complete analysis.
