That is actually a very tricky question, since there is some risk involved in renting property. Your tenant may not pay, and/or may cause significant damage to the property. In addition, the older you get the more likely it is that if work needs to be done on the property you will have to pay somebody else to do it.

So I do not know of any general way to answer that question.
