A way to calculate the rate of return on an investment, especially in real estate. One calculates the cash-on-cash return by dividing the cash inflow on the investment in a given year by the cash outflow originally made. For example, if one buys a property for $100,000, this amount is the denominator when calculating the cash-on-cash return each year.
