You purchase a rental for $25,000 and put another $15,000 into it for repairs. You borrow $40,000 at 8% amortized over 15 years. The house will rent for $1100 a month. Assume the expense factor is 35% of gross rents. What is your yield?

Answer to 03-28-2011 problem:
(N=360, I=4.5, PV=100,000, FV=0) PMT = $506.69
(N=360, I=11, PMT= -$506.69, FV=0) PV = $53,205.17
You will be paying back the loan with cheaper dollars because of the high inflation so the value of that loan today is much lower.
