Doing an analysis of the real estate deal

. Doing an analysis of the deal is more efficient and it lets you know what your profit is going to be before you go into the deal. An analysis will show you what your maximum offer price for a property should be. Know what the asking price is for the real estate property. Determine what your after repair value will be for the property. This is the value of the property after you have made all repairs and improvements. After you determine your after repair value you then need to deduct all of the expenses that are going to be associated with acquiring that real estate property. These expenses are Acquisition Costs like lender fees, discount points, appraisal fees, mortgage broker fees, title insurance, attorney fees, process fees, recording fees, etc; Holding Costs like costs to hold the property until it sells; Repairs or Improvements, Selling Costs that will include the real estate agents commission or advertising costs if you are going to sell it yourself, and Closing Costs that will include closing fees and document preparation.
