To calculate the return on investment (ROI) for a real estate property, follow these steps:

  1. Determine the total cost: Add up all the costs associated with acquiring the property, such as the purchase price, closing costs, agent fees, renovations, and any other expenses.
  2. Calculate the net operating income (NOI): Subtract the property's operating expenses from its gross income. Operating expenses can include property taxes, insurance, maintenance costs, property management fees, and vacancies.
  3. Determine the annual cash flow: Subtract any mortgage payments or loan expenses from the NOI to get the net cash flow generated by the property on an annual basis.
  4. Calculate the cash-on-cash return: Divide the annual cash flow by the total cash investment (down payment, closing costs, and renovations) and multiply by 100 to get the ROI as a percentage.


Formula for cash-on-cash return: Cash-on-cash ROI = (Annual Cash Flow / Total Cash Investment) * 100

  1. Consider other factors: ROI is just one aspect to analyze. Factor in other metrics like potential appreciation, tax benefits, loan paydown, and future market conditions to get a comprehensive view.


Keep in mind that real estate ROI calculations can vary based on factors like financing terms, potential future income, and property appreciation.

It is important to note that ROI calculations can be complex and subjective, as they depend on various factors specific to the property and the market. It is recommended to consult with a real estate professional or financial advisor for accurate and customized calculations based on the specific details of your real estate investment.
