How to calculate rental income?

Calculating rental income involves determining the total amount of rent received from a rental property over a specific period of time. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to calculate rental income:

  1. Determine the monthly rent: This is the amount of rent that is charged per month for the rental property.

  2. Multiply monthly rent by 12: This will give you the annual rent amount.

  3. Account for vacancies: If the rental property is vacant for any portion of the year, you'll need to adjust the annual rent amount accordingly. For example, if the property is vacant for two months, you would multiply the monthly rent by 10 instead of 12.

  4. Add in any additional income: If you charge tenants for utilities, parking, or other fees, you'll need to include this income in your rental income calculation.

  5. Subtract any expenses: Finally, you'll need to subtract any expenses associated with the rental property, such as mortgage payments, property taxes, insurance, repairs, and maintenance. The amount that remains after deducting these expenses is the property's net operating income (NOI).

It's important to note that rental income is just one aspect of a rental property's profitability. You'll also need to take into account other factors such as vacancy rates, property management costs, and potential for appreciation to fully evaluate the profitability of a rental property.
