The Power of Leverage

9 years ago

My name is Corey Siegel and I am the Branch Manager here at MOR Financial. I’ve been with the company since it’s earlier days and the one thing that I can say I’ve learned and implemented into my personal and professional life is the concept of Leverage. I’ve found its power to be so positive and so influential that I’ve since presented the concept of Leverage on several educational platforms. On Wednesday, August 26th, I will be presenting “The Power of Leverage” on MOR Financial’s Webinar Wednesday for the first time on our MOR U educational platform.  You can register for that HERE. Until then, however, I wanted to give you a bit of a breakdown on the potential power that can be found in Leverage.

What is Leverage?

What is leverage? And how does leverage work? Most know that leverage is essentially the use of borrowed capital to increase the potential return on an investment. But how does it work and how can it work for you?

To fully utilize the concept of leverage you must know your margins. The margin is the difference between your all in cost and the end game value of your property (ARV, AS-IS, Increase in Rental Value, etc.). Now, how effectively is your measure of efficiency or your Return on Investment (ROI)? How efficiently are you using the capital that you have?

To summarize the idea of Leverage:

  • The use of something to maximize
  • To use a quality or an advantage to obtain a desired effect or result.
  • Positional advantage; power to act differently.
  • To exert power or influence.

Financial Leverage

Financial Leverage is the use of various financial instruments or borrowed capital, such as margin, to increase potential return on an investment.
