Ignores:Why is Adjusted Cash on Cash useful?

If you are a developer you can think of the Adjusted Cash on Cash as a Developer's Cash on Cash. If you are looking at an investment that is a development, rehab, or has major vacancies that need to be leased up, the traditional Cash on Cash might not give you a valid perspective. Using the Adjusted Cash on Cash for a year that has a stabilized Net Operating Cash Flow typically yields a better number. This is what the Adjusted Cash on Cash is designed for. It can be looked at in years beyond the first year, and it adds any additional spending items to the price. Some of those spending items might include tenant improvements, commissions, rehab construction items, development construction items, and so on. It also takes into account any partial sales and refinancing.

What is the Adjusted Cash on Cash Sensitive to:

Price, Expenses, and Revenue Items (Rent Increase/Decrease, Vacancy, Reimbursements, Free Rent), Tenant Improvements, Commissions, Rehab Construction Items, Development Construction Items, Partial Sales and Refinancing

The Adjusted Cash on Cash is shown in these planEASe Reports:
