Here are the final numbers on the rental property that I purchased.
Interest rate: 5.125%
Term: 30 years

Total monthly payment: $586.24

The townhouse is 1100 sq.ft., 2 beds & 2 baths, washer, dryer, carport, and small back yard. It has a great central location and should rent easily. I have another property nearby that is very easy to rent.
It needs some cleanup and repair work in the kitchen, fire alarms, blinds in the windows, new toilet sets, etc. There is nothing big that we have to do to it. With my wife and kids pitching in, we should have it ready to go by the end of the weekend.
Here are a few more photos of the kitchen, the living room, and the back yard.
