Why Real Estate Investment Includes Risk Analysis

The bottom line about any real estate investment analysis is that it is a risk analysis. If risk was not an issue with investing, and all the results of any given investment were known with certainty, than creating an analysis for any type of real estate investment would simply be a matter of arithmetic. But the truth about real estate investing is that many factors come into play (i.e., the economy, tenant trends, etc.) that make it impossible to ever know with absolute certainty enough about a typical property to remove every element of the unknown.

Since the ability to accept varying levels of risk will differ from investor to investor, many simply avoid real estate altogether and opt to put their money only in relatively risk-free investments such as government Treasury bills. But the price for this lower level of insecurity, of course, is a lower rate of return. Why, because a relationship always exists between risk and rate of return. Therefore, when investors are attracted to the certainty, they in effect force down the rate of return they are willing to accept as a tradeoff for their unwillingness to accept uncertainty.

Okay, so what about the risk takers? What can investors who prefer to collect the higher rates of return associated with real estate investment do to deal with (and perhaps minimize) the ambiguity? Investors must exploit tools that can potentially measure this risk. One method is by applying what is known as a “probability distribution” to prospective real estate investment opportunities.

For example, rather than using just one set of rents to ascertain potential cash flows and returns for a rental property, the investor should consider several rent scenarios that reflect an estimated probability of their occurrence.

In my real estate investment software, for instance, a form is provided that allows users to apply three different rent scenarios to a rental property. This way, rather than just having to accept whatever rents are presented by the seller, the investor can analyze the cash flows and returns based upon a range of rent probabilities (i.e., most likely, somewhat likely, and not likely but “wow, wouldn’t it be great”).

The logic is straightforward. Say, for example, that you’re doing an analysis on a ten-unit apartment complex made up of ten two-bedroom, one-bath units each reportedly with the potential of renting for $700 per month. My own experience warns me that “potential” rents may (or may not) be likely, so I always prefer to run my own rent scenarios. In this case, then, you would use our Rent Scenarios form and assign three rent probabilities based upon your own measurement of risk, and instantly you are the results so you can analyze what impact each rent might have on cash flows, rates of return, and profitability. The outcome if monthly rents are more likely at $650, for instance, could affect your willingness to chance buying the property.

This is only one of a variety of mathematical and statistical approaches to risk analysis that will help you address the uncertainties of real estate investment. But you get the idea. The best way to deal with uncertainty is to measure it. And the probability distribution we illustrated for rents is a good first step.

The Intertwined Energies of Love and Sales

On the very first day of the Jewish New Year, my divorce became final. I consider that symbolic. And a major accomplishment, considering it’s been 3 years since I’d started the legal process toward this new beginning.

On the Saturday night two days later, my dear friend and I celebrated all this with a lovely dinner out. We dressed up and called it a date. Her partner took photos of us before we went out, like it was the prom. How fun to have a special occasion! I treated her to a delicious meal, complete with cognac (one of her faves), and she surprised me with a gift subscription to jDate. Joy and ease. Giving and receiving. Banner night. I felt energy flowing that I’d been missing for a long time.

Almost immediately after we established my account, I started receiving messages from potential suitors. Curious, I responded to a few. More energy flowing.

That experience inspired me to listen to music I hadn’t heard in a long time — music with emotion-filled lyrics and tunes. Love songs. More energy flowing.

In the next days I attended Heather Dominick’s SOAR seminar on Soul-Filled Selling. I learned valuable information and had a wonderful time connecting with many of my favorite women entrepreneurs. (More energy flowing.) I also continued to dialogue with the potential suitors. (Ditto). I cried a little when one of the songs on my ipod particularly touched my heart. (Double ditto.)

And ultimately this concatenation of experiences sparked a major a-ha for me: there is a close connection between loving and soul-filled selling. Love is an action. Presenting my high-value, brilliance-based service is a loving action. And with that perspective, my sales conversations now feel completely different.

Paul Simon wrote -Negotiations and love songs are often mistaken for one and the same.- By opening myself to love again – by opening myself to experience a special night on the town and write my jDate profile and spend time with friends and listen to some mushy melodies – I have formed multiple new connections. The more I open myself to experience love, the stronger and deeper connections I can have with my prospects and clients, which will ultimately benefit my bottom line. Down to my toes I can feel that by opening my heart I have opened a previously invisible retractable roof on my life and my business.

What roof is over your life and business? If you’re ready to raise it with love, by expressing Your Brilliance and articulating your Unique Definition of Success, let’s talk.

Debra Woog coaches women entrepreneurs to accelerate success, with joy and ease, by building your Brilliance-Based Business with profit-enhancing marketing, technology, management and personal best practices.
