It's all about the numbers in real estate. This does not mean house or property numbers. Cash flow is king and every great investor knows how much he or she is making on his or her real estate investments. Property investing is one of the most consistent ways that you can earn a residual monthly income regardless of swings in the stock or bond markets. You don't have to be a certified public accountant or financial advisor to get the real scoop on how much a property will earn for you.

There are variables that you must not forget about when doing a rough ROI for your investment property. Things like annual property taxes, property management fees, federal and local taxes and property insurance. The totals from these expenses will reduce the amount of income that you earn each month.
The goal for any property is to earn more than what is paid out. The average return for what is considered a "good" real estate investment is between 8 and 10 percent. Properties in areas like Jacksonville, Florida have higher rent prices and lower home values. These are 2 of the key ingredients for a larger than average real estate return on your investment.
