Bought in December 2016.

$115k purchase price ($116.5k including CC)
$215 monthly HOA (H2O included)
8% property management fee
~1% property taxes
$97 liability insurance
$150 monthly electricity
10% vacancy
Rents for $1660 including utilities
= ~8-9% ROI

Bought off market from another investor, 4 bed/4 bath university style condo near NCSU in Raleigh-Durham metro NC.

Not sure if it counts, but we finished out a 2 bed/1 bath 1000 square foot basement apartment under our house at the end of last year. $75k all-in including furnishings/appliances/cooking gear/beds/etc.

We're doing about $3k/month renting it as a vacation rental thus far. Overhead is basically just extra utilities (~$100/mo) and replacing consumables like TP. I'd figure another $100/mo for replacing linens/appliances/etc as they wear out, on the conservative side.

Management and cleaning eats up a couple hours a week of time, though. Still, for ~$34k/year, I'll take it.
