What Internal Rate of Return Is
IRR is is the annual rate of growth expected on an investment.
There are three streams of income to review in an IRR:
- Cash flow: What is your annual net cash flow return on this investment? This is how to determine how much cash ends up in your account at the end of the year.
- Principal reduction: In most cases, you would use financing for your investment, and each month you need to make a mortgage payment. However, you are receiving rent each month from your tenant, this money is actually paying down your mortgage.
- Appreciation: Every year, you should expect your property to increase in value.

If Now Is a Good Time to Buy Real Estate
In my personal opinion, it’s always a good time to buy real estate. Whether we’re in a strong economy or not, the benefits of real estate are there. Sure, you might be paying a bit more for real estate (and in interest) right now. But as long as the numbers make sense on your investment, real estate is a great hedge against inflation with incredible tax benefits.
The Difference Between a Buyer’s Market and a Seller’s Market
The best way to understand the difference between a buyer’s market and a seller’s market is to look at supply and demand. If supply exceeds demand, that’s a buyer’s market. On the other hand, if there’s more demand, it’s a seller’s market. Right now, there’s still an incredible demand for properties. Even if demand isn’t as high as it was earlier this year, I would say we’re still in a seller’s market. This can also vary by individual market, but on the whole, we are in a seller’s market.
