ROI – Return on Investment

Return on Investment, as the name suggests, is a term that measures the profit you have received on the investment. It is calculated by dividing the net profit by the total capital cost of the investment. The higher the ROI, the higher is profit.

ROI decides whether the investment turned out to be profitable or not.

 

ROI = Net Income/Cost of Investment

 

 

BSP – Basic Sale Price or MV – Market Price

Both the terms indicate the base rate per sq ft at which the property is listed by the seller. The base rate does not include any additional charges such as Goods and Service Tax (GST), amenity charges, preferential location charges or any other maintenance fees. These additional charges calculate up to 20% of the BSP.

 

 

Cash Flow

Cash Flow indicates towards the net amount of cash earned from the property every month after deducting basic operation costs. Basically, it is the net difference between the money coming in and going out from your asset. If the income of the assets is more than the money you need to maintain it, then it proves that the property is profitable. It will help you maintain a profitable cash flow.

But, when expenses are more than the total income, you will experience a negative cash flow. Ideally, these are the rental incomes that ensure maintaining a positive cash flow.

 

HOA – Home Owner’s Association

HOA stands for a self-governing organization that comprises of a particular subdivision, apartment or planned housing community. HOA has all the rights to enforce rules for maintaining the property and collecting maintenance fees from the house owners. When you buy a property within a specific HOA, you will automatically become a member of the association and thus liable to pay the defined HOA charges.
