In Albuquerque in 2023, Should You Rent or Own???

Owning or Renting a House

The answer to the age old questions is… BOTH!

You should own your home AND rent it out using a professional property management company!

Hint: Call Real Property Management Rio Grande… 505-292-4765

Simple math hypothetical example (all numbers for example only):


  • 200,000 home in Albuquerque
  • 40000 down payment
  • monthly payment on 30 year mortgage at 4.0%
  • 300 taxes and insurance
  • Rent is 1500
  • Property Management Fees are 165 per month.
  • expenses for the property (repairs, maintenance, replacements) are 1700 per year
  • your cash flow goes from $129 per month to $350 per month over the first 5 years.

But when including principle payment, home appreciation, and tax benefits, the return exceeds 20% per year … and this gets better year after year and gets better with inflation!
