You can pretty much compare the money-weighted return and the savings account return directly since the savings account is (presumably) a constant return. The time-weighted return will just be the geometric average of the periodic returns between any cash flows, and will weight returns higher in periods that you have a higher investment balance. If you do ...

How do I (and real-estate investors and people considering buying in general) proceed in coming down to a conclusion without attempting to low-ball the seller or aim to high, with such different ranges in hand? You are essentially trying to mimic what a seller does. Before they list the house on the market they ask several agents to prepare a ...

I would see if there is an official open register where you can check the taxation value of the real estate. In The Netherlands you can check https://www.wozwaardeloket.nl/index.jsp and get for every address the taxation value of the real estate. Although the market value is often slightly higher than the value listed in the register, it gives you an ...

A proper appraisal is not usually done by a realtor, but realtors should know their markets and how to research. Apartments/condos/townhouses are usually much easier to price than single-family houses because there are many comparable units in a relatively small area that can be used to get a good ballpark estimate. Starting with the comparable units you ...

Averaging a $30 per day gain on $10k generates a 75% annual return. If you are referring to investing, that's rarely going to happen unless you happen to pick a lottery ticket winner. For example, KRTX was up 750% in two days this week ($17.68 to a high of $152) due to the results of a clinical trial). For normal people, expect 8% a year. My take on ...

Is it possible to make 30 USD per day starting with 10000 USD? How much risk would I have to take to get this return? The optimal stock market portfolio yields 8%. The risk-free interest rate is at 0% where I live (Eurozone). But let's say 3% because US conditions are different from Eurozone. As the other answer calculated, 30 USD daily return is 198% ...

Making even just $30 a day on a $10,000 investment would be 0.3% daily return, or 198% annualized (compounded daily), or 109% annual return without compounding. You'd have to take some massive risk to get even such a seemingly small daily return, which would basically be doubling (or tripling if you could reinvest) your money every year. $30 a week is a ...

I'd highly recommend reading JL Collin's Stock Series. This is a great resource to teach you about how investing works, and gives you a primer on index funds, stock and bonds. Aditionally (and most importantly) it teaches you how to think about your money so that you don't make the bad decisions that so many people do by panic selling every time the market ...

Past returns are past, future returns are future. I have no experience in Indian real estate market, but I should mention that any CAGR should take into account inflation. Stocks yield about 6% above inflation. If inflation has been on average at 14-24%, that explains the origin of the high CAGR in real estate. Also, how much time has your father spent in ...
