Can I buy an Indy rental for 100k that rents out for $1,500? Indy real estate questions answered.

First of all, THANK YOU again for making this channel the number one channel for Indiana real estate on YouTube according google analytics and SocialBlade info for

This is a quick video I made about  a Hero’s experiment…

Can I buy an Indy rental for 100k that rents out for $1,500? Indy real estate questions answered.


Here’s a question for today:

I’ve been saving my money and was wanting to invest it in long term rental properties. I live in CA, but the property prices are too high for me to get started.  I would like to start out by buying something around $100k with 20% down. Is that obtainable? Thanks!

Let’s face it, buying in places like CA or the coasts is crazy expensive and even if you put a bunch of money down you would still be losing cash every month.  Remembering that generally appreciation and positive cash rentals have an inverse relationship.

Appreciation and High Positive Cash Flow are Usually Inverse. 

The “hotter” a market the more investors are willing to pay so you’re less likely to get rents that will cover your mortgage payment and expenses. The slower a market the most more likely that the rent will cover your mortgage and then some.

So, Indiana is mainly a flat market, in general it never goes very up or down and because of that this is one of the ONLY markets in the world where you can find “2% Houses” or houses that rent for 2% of the purchase price.

A $40,000 house that rents for $800 a month.

For example, if it is a $40,000 house it rents for $800 a month, then that may be the ideal set up for long term passive income.

So, to answer the question YES you can definitely get a solid rental for $100,000 in the Indy market.

In fact, if you got two “2% Houses” you could get them each for let’s say $40,000 and each could rent for
$800/month that means your monthly cash would be $1,600 and your mortgage payments on $80k mortgage (that’s two 40k) could be $500-600.

So, you could be bringing in three times as much in rent as your mortgage payment.  Trying getting that ROI in CA or anywhere else lol.

Now I want to be sure to address the fact that you talked about being a long-term rental owner.

Indiana is a landlord friendly state which is a big bonus factor to your situation about our unique market.  

Once we factor in tax & vacancy rates, job diversity &  growth, population & income growth (accounting for poverty decline) combined with current legislation and housing prices (and potential ROI’s)…

It quickly becomes clear why Indiana is an investor favorite.

It just works out favorably with the numbers asked about in the question.  All this just happens to be confined within our Hoosier borders.  ;  )

Now let me give you an example of what I’m talking about here…

Here are some real life Indiana real estate deals:

3525 Kinnear Ave
Indianapolis, IN 46218

That is for sale for 17k.

Now this one should rent for around $800/month and with a budget of $22k or so which is doable as it’s not a huge property.   So you would be into for less than 40k and then you’re set up to be right in line with a 2% rental yield.

Now two of these bad boys would set you up pretty closely to that $100K mark for total investments and that would be TWO houses at a 2% monthly rental yield.

Yes 2% houses are real.

Deals like these you aren’t going to find in a lot of other areas for sure.  Also, we’ve just doubled your original estimated monthly ROI.  You would be buying two houses for $80,000 total and your incoming rents would be $1,600.

Pricing: $80,000 
Rents: $1,600

So, to recap:

We went over how it is indeed possible to be a passive OOS investor with the numbers asked about.

We went on to ‘upgrade’ your potential ROI by showing you how our 2% gross monthly rental yields can
work here in Indy.

We gave you an example property so you could see exactly what we were talking about and a real life case study.
