When you're narrowing down the search for your next investment property, it's often helpful to compare two or more properties side-by-side to determine which one will be the better investment.
It's also helpful to compare how different acquisition strategies will impact your cash flow, profit and investment returns. For example, you may get very different returns whether you're buying a property with cash or with financing.
