With an income property, it’s always good to keep the big picture in mind. Over the long run, the value of the property will increase, making it a sound investment. Ideally, you’ll want to see some short-term profit too, but to do so your income must exceed your expenses. Before you purchase a property you need to consider how much the following items will cost:

  • Loan payment
  • Insurance
  • Taxes
  • Utilities (depending on whether you or the tenant will pay these)
  • Maintenance needs
  • Other dues, such as Homeowner’s Association

Next, you need to find out how much rent you can get for a specific income property.

For this, it’s best to go to an expert. Different factors will affect rent amount including:

  • Neighborhood
  • Strength of the rental market
  • Size of property
  • Updates in the unit

There’s really no need to be stressed about purchasing an income property because there’s little risk when you get a property management company with experience involved. They can tell you what to expect regarding expenses and income, and will even help you find the right place for you.
