How to calculate your return in an investment?


That is the question I always get.

​

But that’s wrong.

​

You should start by what’s the return that you need to get from an investment to make it worthy.

That’s the real thing.

Is it 5%, 10% or 15%? Would it be the same if the interest rates are 3%, 5% or 8%?

You can get the answer in the course below

​Investing better than 99% of people

​

But for now… let’s go back to the question.

​

It’s such a recurring question that you’ll even find dozens of articles, posts, or videos on YouTube trying to answer it.

​

People are afraid.

​

Afraid of not finding hidden defects in a property before buying it.

And I’m not talking about structural defects… or at least, not just…

​

Imagine arriving on the first day to see what you've bought, now being yours, and realizing that the electricity was worse than you expected.

Or that you can hear the neighbor too much when they flush the toilet.

Or that you have a very nice neighbor that love the fiestas until late… from Tuesday to Sunday.

​

You can be quite jodido is this happens.

​

The same happens when, after calculating the profitability of a property, what you had on paper turns out to be just a mirage.

Going from calculations to reality is very complicated, and gurus on the internet sell it as a simple formality.

What was supposed to be an 8% net, ends up being an 8% gross…

And then you realize that the 2 weeks to find a tenant become 2 months.

And the insurance grows over inflation, as well as the condo fees or municipal taxes…

​

In the course below, I provide my personal Excel File to review all these scenarios.

It includes taxes, inflation rates for key elements, appreciation, cash flows, mortgage, interest rates, upgrades…

It’s my personal tool that gives me the go or no go in 5 minutes.

​

But here is the interesting thing… Good opportunities need to be created, not just detected.

​

And that… and not the magic Excel File is what you should be considering.

Shut up and learn There is one entrepreneur that I admire enormously. I even have unconditional devotion. And, it’s not Elon Musk. I like Elon. I know about his story. But you never know all the story for real. He may be just born with a flower and a four-leaf clover in the ass and be the luckiest guy ever. You never know for real… My favourite entrepreneur though is my brother. I know very well his story. Everything. Perfectly, his humble origins… Not the ones of a bio-book, but the real...

People with common sense have two ways of becoming millionaires with minimum risk. One Spend 30-40 years of your life working hard, saving, and investing to retire rich at 65-70. If that’s your plan, I wish you luck. That plan requires a lot of time and is risky: If you don’t know how to invest well, the plan is screwed. If the stock market has 10 bad years, the plan is screwed. If you are unemployed for several years, the plan is screwed. If you get sick, the plan is screwed. If you die...

Along the week, I’m offered serval investments. Start ups, equity in consolidated mid size companies, new real estate developments, or simply houses/buildings to buy. People complicate themselves too much. And then, you have those perfectionists… The brand colors need to “transmit / reflect your values”. The font of your web should be… Your blog needs to be optimized for SEO Add a AI chat bot for customers… Etc. etc. etc. 99% bullshit. If you’re interested in investing or creating any...
