What Is Effective Gross Income?

Have you heard the term, “Effective Gross Income?” If you’re starting out in real estate investing in Georgia or the Carolinas, you may hear this term. Also called, “EGI,” it’s the income that you’d have when you subtract losses of income from vacancy, concessions, model units, legal fees, employees, and bad debt. The reason it’s important to know an apartment complex’s Effective Gross Income is extremely telling.

You don’t only want to consider the Gross Potential Income. You’ll also want to add in revenue generated from other things like coin-operated laundry, parking, or concessions. In order to determine your property’s Effective Gross Income, you would would take the Potential Gross Income, add in other income, and subtract a vacancy and debt allowance.

Determining Effective Gross Income is one of the most important factors when determining your expected cash flow. It’s a bottom-line figure that investors and lenders will want to see.
