WEALTH BUILDING SCENARIOS
Jake contributes $20,000 into his retirement account every year while Anna purchases one rental property per
year using approximately $20,000 as a down payment.
At the end of 20 years, Anna owns 20 properties and receives $71,248.20 per year in rental income. When Anna
dies, her children may anticipate receiving $71,248.20 per year in rental income.
Note: This scenario does not include any adjustment for rent increases, which is expected to increase over
time. Also, Anna is building equity in the property due to appreciation, while her tenants pay down the loan
on the property.
Jake will not see any income from his retirement account until he reaches the age of retirement. Anna
receives the immediate benefit of a stream of rental income.
1031 Exchange Scenario
Kristina has a rental property in a market that does not cash flow as well as other markets do. This property is paid off and is worth $220,000. Kristina’s cash flow after expenses is $8,000 per year. Tax
laws allow her to exchange this property for other rental properties of equal or greater value without paying taxes on any profit she otherwise would have to pay if she sold the property outright.
Kristina does a 1031 exchange and is able to put $18,000 per property toward down payments and closing costs on 12 properties worth $70,000 each. Kristina’s cash flow is now $42,748.92 per year after
expenses and instead of owning one property worth $220,000 she owns 12 properties worth $840,000.
Remember, the tenants are making all the payments on these 12 properties and when all the loans are paid off Kristina will have $840,000 in equity instead of $220,000.
Mike inherits $2 million dollars from his mother. He is able to qualify for loans on four rentals with 20% down. He buys an additional 26 properties using the remaining cash. Results:
- Four properties down payment: $18,000 x 4= $72,000
- Twenty-six properties all cash with closing costs $74,000 x 26 = $1,924,000
- Total cash flow per year without vacancy and repairs: $182,095.24 (that’s $15,175 per month!)
- This amount will tend to increase over time with increases in rent. Also, equity will build up due to tenants paying off properties and appreciation.
Sale of Residence Scenario
Gabe sells his residence and receives cash of $400,000 from the sale. He uses $100,000 on a down payment on a new house and invests $300,000 in down payments on 14 rental properties. Gabe now receives $49,873.74 in annual cash flow from the rental properties.
Now, Gabe bought a $500,000 new residence with his down payment of $100,000. The annual mortgage payment on the new residence is $23,000 per year. His property taxes are $6,250. His insurance on his house is $2,200. His total for mortgage, insurance, and property taxes per year is $31,450 for his new residence.
This is $18,424 less than what Gabe receives as income from his rental properties. This means that Gabe lives in his new house which is all paid for by the rental income he gets. In addition the tenants are paying off his rental properties. Thus, Gabe is now building up equity in his new house and 14 rentals all paid by his tenants.
Furthermore, since Gabe has a larger mortgage on his residence than he would if he had used all of the $400,000 as a down payment, he will now have a much larger tax deduction on his personal tax return because of the higher amount of mortgage interest he can deduct. This is true even though he is not using any money from his paycheck to pay the mortgage on his residence because he is using the rental profits paid by his tenants to pay the mortgage on his residence.
