Property Appreciation – What goes up?

Property Appreciation is a term used to describe the rising value of a property. If you buy a property for $400,000 and its value goes up to $500,000, you have $100,000 in property appreciation.

Property appreciation is mostly an increase in “Land Value.” Inner City land, as a general rule, goes up quicker than land under those new homes on the outskirts of the city.

“Land goes up in value, and structures built on the land go down in value.” That is the general rule subject to mean very little on outlier properties.

South West Calgary properties have a stronger appreciation than North East Calgary. North East Calgary has better Monthly Cash Flow than North West or South West Calgary.

Positive Monthly Cash Flow – Income left after expenses

Rental Income left over from your tenant after you pay the mortgage, taxes and insurance will be either positive or negative monthly cash flow.

Need money monthly? You need positive cash flow from your investments.

Are you ok with cashing out at a later date? Then property appreciation should be your guide to investing.

Do you want both positive cash flow and property appreciation? That is possible as well.

The Home Rental Market in Calgary changes with supply and demand.

Calgary overall could be a Tenant’s Market. And a community right next door to a hospital could be a landlord’s market. The home rental market is a supply and demand market like any other. The market will be either a Tenant’s, Landlords or a Balanced Market. Over time the rental market will experience all three.

A popular saying amongst Calgary Real Estate Investors is “Timing The Market is not as Important as Time IN The Market.
