I am in Long Island and have had a 2-family and still have a single unit on Rochester. You have an advantage being nearby.
After all of our expenses, vacancy times and tenant damage, we come out with about $2,000/year. I would not do it again.
If I were local and could interview tenants and had my repair team (or myself) set, I would consider it.
It becomes profitable if you own several, not just one.
If you need a local representative to help you get started and/or to advise, I will be happy to share the name of my Rochester Realtor who has been my lifesaver, Roger Benton of Nothnagle Realtors 585-749-3246.
Good luck and feel free to contact me should you have any further questions.
