In the example that FMO gave where a property will cost $135,000 and earn $600, it's not even close to breaking even

The property is a duplex. Each side rents for $600. It has cash flow from the beginning. it would be very difficult where I am to get a 100:1 ratio. I am usually satisfied with 120-125:1 for a single family home. I expect better ratios for multiples.
