I think having a budget that you are comfortable with is critical to any investment strategy. By laying out the cash flows, and expected asset values you can get a feel for various economic parameters such as:
- Net present value comparison of various strategies
- Rate of return
- Sensitivity to various economic parameters such as interest rates and inflation
- Affordability or liquidity risks

I hope you find this budget useful as I believe having a well laid out plan is extremely important. Having a solid budget in place will create long term value for investors and create a successful financial environment for your family.
I strongly encourage people to come up with their own budgets, and perform due diligence before making any investment decision.
The budget excel spreadsheets that I came up with are here:
