Thank you for your help
I’m not clear on ehat you mean by "mortgage replacment"
I lost the property anyway
The seller accepted an offer and I felt squezzed to make a deal you know?
I think I was emotionaly attatched to the property.

I need help with a cash flow on a 4 unit poroperty I am looking at to buy. This is my first deal and I am scared and nervous and unsure of how to do this. Here it is
> asking price 249k
> 4 units
rent one at 625
two at 650
> total expenses 844.21
> net op income 1663.79

I’m not sure what the financing would be at. I figure
249k at 10% with 15% down would be 1851.736 per month.
This leaves me with a negative 187.946 per month!

Can I raise the rents up to the highest rent of 675 when I take over?
I’m in california is there a law against doing that?
How can I get a positive out of this negative?

oh yea there is an assumable of 72k

the way you are looking at it is cutting it way too close even if you reaise rents to $700 on everything - you MUST get the payment lower - seller may go in and replace mortgage and then carry back balance at a payment (regardless of interest) that lets you make a profit - DO NOT go ahead with this the way you have it structured
