Would you be able to do a post on whether people would have generally profited more if they flip every 3-5 years vs if they hold for a good 10-20 years before moving on to their next property after taking into consideration commissions, financing and accrued interest costs?

Hi Rachel, it depends on whether or not the property purchased outpaces the average property price increase. Generally, if you bought and sold 5 properties over a period of 25 years and each property performs equally well as the overall real estate inflation, then you’d be financially worse off if you had just held one that also achieved the same appreciation. This is due to the transaction costs. So it really boils down to the picks made along the way.
