A part of the house can be rent out to meet yearly expense. $60,000 p.a income can be drawn from the house rent. Yearly expense is of $55,000 including living expenses and travelling expense. The rent is enough to cover those and there will be additional $5,000.

ently and so the price of the investment is low.
