I have been in the real estate and property management business for over 14 years, and this is definitely an accurate statement.
I would recommend talking to a local Property Management company such as Legacy Properties-PM to get current market rental rates and make sure that they are knowledgeable about Fair Housing and anti-discrimination laws. There are also other things that may be deductible, such as management fees, and if you are an active landlord, vs a passive landlord, there are even more deductions.
If you have multiple properties, read his article for the best advice for the greatest tax advantage.
