Property Rental Advice

Post by AlphaLess » Mon Feb 25, 2019 9:55 pm

Greetings: I am considering investing in residential property for rental purposes.

On bogleaheads, I have seen a few posts here and there about property rentals.

I also seem to remember someone mentioning that there are internet forums targeted specifically for this purpose.

Would someone point me in the direction of those forums please.

I am generally interested in reading about what makes a good property rental, what type of numbers I should consider, etc. I guess I am looking for a framework to reason about rental properties.

I am also happy to share what I am considering here, but before I waste everyone's time, I feel like I could do some reading and analysis on my own.

Thank you very much in advance.

Before you understand the math, nothing else is relevant.

After you understand it, nearly everything else is irreverent :mrgreen:
