When I have investors who are purchasing homes to rent, I like to refer them to http://www.rentometer.com. This website gives you the ability to type in the address of the property, including total bedrooms and bathrooms, then it will give you a range (in the form of a meter) of rents for homes in the immediate neighborhood. It also includes a map with the rentals used in the valuation, this way you can actually click on each property, on the map, for more detailed comparison. I hope that helps. If I seek a professional property manager, I would be delighted to help. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.
