Calculate the Net Profitability of your Rental Income Property
Buying a real estate property with the goal of renting it is a common investment that can insure a constant cash flow of income. However, even though it is a popular type of investment, when looking at the numbers, it is actually comparable to any other type of investment such as the stock market, government titles or other business project.
The following simulator will help you calculate the potential financial outcome of your investment property (net of taxes) which could then be used to compare it to other investment opportunities. However, this calculator cannot measure more qualitative aspects such as the relevant expertise required to run the business, which could favor this form of investment over others.
Please change the suggested values with your own amounts in the blue text boxes.
Our financial calculators start with default values to suggest what to enter typically in each modifiable field, displayed as blue text boxes, in order to simulate a common scenario. Please change those values with your own. To keep track of your changes, the blue box will turn gray after they are modified.
You will also notice that our calculators behave like financial applications and recalculate automatically all values with each change instead of having to click on some extra button or going to a new result page, this is intentional and helps understand the effect of one change with the overall result in a more dynamic and instantaneous manner.
However, charts in our older calculators are not updated automatically, so if there is an "Update" button next to the chart, make sure to click on it after you make a change before you analyze it.
