Unfortunately, nobody can predict the future. However, an honest answer to your question is based on what we know now. If you find a home you like and can afford, your Realtor can show you what that house is currently renting for in that area. You can then decide if that rental income would cover your mortgage, HOA, taxes and property management fees. With that information, you should be able to make an educated decision. As of today, there are many homes that can provide positive cash flow, however in most cases, you would need to put down a sizeable downpayment (20% or more). I wish you luck in your search!
