Investment Property Financing
Cash:

Buying all cash is by far the lowest risk option. Buying all cash means fronting all the purchase price and closing costs with cash out of your own pocket.

Pros:

No risk to over leverage. No monthly mortgage repayments, all revenue that exceeds the expenses, is profit. Quick access to a line of credit or loan on the property in the future.

Cons:

Reduction of funds will reduce buying power. The return on investment, cash on cash return, etc. are all greatly diminished.

Works for:

Short term ownership of property like flipping etc.
