The goal is to be at 10% or higher. This can be achieved if you select an area where rents are high, taxes and fees low. and repairs low. It is a balancing act to find just the right property. I do this with investors regularly. Feel free to give me a call if you want to acquire some property.

Also,buying at a low price and paying cash will give you your highest return.

As you can see, it's not an easy answer and it depends on many factors.
I one or two clients that are making several hundred dollars a month in the 50K to 90K range, but that's because they got a low interest rate loan, the taxes are low and the home owners association fees are also very low.

Most of my clients don't make much of a positive cash flow in this price range. Their exit strategy is to buy now at a low price, hold the property for several years and then sell it once the market improves.

I would also recommend that you hire a property manager to manage the property, it will save you time and money in the long run.

To estimate your net proceeds from a rental we need to know:
Projected Gross Income ($500-900 per month)
Less -Vacancy & Collections
= Effective Gross Income
Less-Operating Expenses
=Net Operating Income
Less-Debt Service (annual mortgage payments)
= Pre Tax Cash Flow (Before tax)
