This report provides a detailed look at the expected cash flows from the property over a year. By considering both the income generated (like rent, parking fees, etc.) and the operating expenses (such as taxes, insurance, maintenance, utilities, property management fees, etc.), it allows potential investors to estimate their net operating income (NOI). This is a critical metric in determining whether the property can provide a satisfactory return on investment.  

Risk Assessment:

The Proforma Cash Flow Summary report allows investors to assess the risk associated with a potential real estate investment. By examining the expected cash flow, investors can gauge the property's financial stability. If the projected cash flows are inconsistent or negative, it might suggest higher financial risk. Therefore, this report is a crucial tool for investors in making risk-adjusted decisions.  

Investment Comparison:

Proforma Cash Flow Summaries allow investors to compare different real estate investment opportunities side-by-side. They can examine the projected cash flows of various properties and make investment decisions based on expected returns.
Remember, though the Proforma Cash Flow Summary report is an important tool, it's based on estimates and assumptions. It's therefore crucial to use conservative estimates and to couple this tool with a thorough physical inspection of the property and a comprehensive market analysis.
