Title: case study- planning on selling, finally, have been renting it out for a decade
Post by: monarda on January 17, 2019, 10:21:21 PM
We lived in the house 2006-2008.  We've been renting it out since then.

Market Value: 160-170K
Original Purchase price: 130K
Original Mortgage Amount: 104K
Interest Rate: ARM, currently 5.25%  varied between 2.7% and 6% over the years.
Mortgage Term: 30 years
Term remaining:17
Amount remaining on mortgage:78K  (made some lump sum paydowns when interest rate was high)
Gross Rents:1200
Principal and Interest (the P&I of your PITI - should match with the above info): 550 monthly
Taxes and Insurance (the T&I of your PITI): 4000 annually
HOA costs: none

needs a roof. 160-170K price window is as-is condition.
$3300 special assessment (significant street work done last year)
We put in a new kitchen and a new furnace over the years, as well as significant energy efficiency improvements. Including all of this, the 50% rule was pretty darn accurate.

I think we'll do okay in the end considering cash flow and sales price. We're thinking about how to go about calculating what's the lowest acceptable price if we get a lowball offer. We can rent it again pretty easily. But we'd like to unload it.

Don't forget that you will have to recapture your depreciation, even if you didn't claim it as an expense.

yep, total depreciation is about 40K. But that's on next year's taxes.
