How to Read the Charts Charts that are relatively flat indicate factors that are not particularly important to the outcome. Conversely, the factors that have steep slopes have a large impact.
Purchase Price
A very important factor, but not the only one. Our ROI estimate will improve as you enter more details below.

How Long Do You Plan to Own?
Holding your property longer allows for better returns as the upfront fees are spread out over many years, rents go up, and property values increase.
What Are Your Property Management Details?
A great property manager is the key to success for marketing, maintenance, and managing renters.
What Does the Future Hold?
How much home prices, rents and stock prices change can have a large impact on your outcome. Unfortunately, these are some of the hardest things to predict. If you choose to rent instead of buying, the calculator assumes that youll spend your would-be down payment on stocks or another investment.
Property taxes and mortgage-interest costs are significant but also deductible. The higher your marginal tax rate is, the bigger the deduction.
How do you file your taxes: ?
The first $250,000 of profit from the sale of your home is excluded from taxation. The exclusion is $500,000 if you file jointly with a spouse. See IRS Topic 701 for more information.
Closing Costs
Youll have to pay various fees when you buy your investment property, as well as when you sell it.
