Working with a Pro Forma for any potential investment is a critical part of an investor’s due diligence. The Pro Forma expands on evaluating NOI and Cap Rates. Even a simple Pro Forma like the one you can download here factors in current occupancy, capital reserves, the cost of financing, rent-up costs to estimate annual return on investment. The assumptions an investor plugs in to a Pro Forma are informed by the depth and breadth of the investor’s market knowledge. How does the property compare to competing properties in the market with regards to vacancy rates, rental rates, property and area amenities and tenant demand? Is there any deferred maintenance at the property? What’s the market supply like? Are there new competing properties coming on the market? These are just some of the questions to consider when evaluating a potential investment property.
