### What Is It?

A ratio that shows the total rate of return of a rental property based on comparing the total profit from your investment to the total invested cash.

The equity multiple takes into account the cumulative cash flow, equity accumulation and loan paydown and gives the total cumulative return on your invested capital, should you decide to sell the property at a given point in time.

The equity multiple is the same as the return on investment (ROI), except expressed as a ratio.
