What do the Olympics & Return on Investment have in common?

Real estate is a numbers game and many individuals will purchase investment properties striving for ultimate returns.

Because of this time of year being the Winter Olympics there is a hot topic related the South Korea’s investment in the Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium. They spent $116 billion won on the establishment which is $109 million U.S. Dollars. It is a large facility that is fit for the Olympics and the most certainly invested a pretty penny. What makes all of this controversial is that they will have used the stadium only 4 times (2 times in February for the opening and closing ceremonies and 2 times in March for the opening and closing ceremonies for the Paralympics.) and are choosing to demolish the building once the Olympics is completed. That means that per use it costed them $27.25 million dollars! It has been a topic of conversation that many hosts of the games actually end up in significant debt after hosting because they spend so much money on preparing.

Relate this now to your real estate investments. Would you spend that kind of money on an establishment and then not utilize it more than 4 times? We would hope not.
