Calgary Rental Properties - Break Even Worksheet for Real Estate Investors

This chart starts with the assumption that you collect enough rent to offset the operating costs. All you can change in this Excel worksheet are highlighted in gold. Because that is where the gold is. Anything you can improve on is gold in your pocket.

  1. Make money when you buy the rental property for instant equity and enhanced appreciation. Buying below market value gives you an excellent head start to profitability, and the year-over-year appreciation is on the market value, not the discounted value you paid. That’s a win-win right from the start.
  2. Negotiating a lower interest rate and a longer amortization offers another win-win opportunity to increase profits and a cushion should the market start favouring renters.
  3. Get higher rent and better tenants with proper property presentation and strict tenant selection criteria. Another win-win situation that amplifies your return on investment.

Do the math. Know what your break-even scenario is and work hard to improve it. Buying right offers opportunities. Financing smart offers opportunities. Renting right makes everything pay off.
