I have spent the past year studying the US real estate investment, and in my personal opinion investing in rental property can be exhausting. You need to find the right property and tenants to keep your blood pressure from going up every now and then. If you can manage that, you need time for rent collection and property maintenance. Then, you need to figure out the taxes and other costs that come along with renting.
If you have a full time job and a busy life on weekends, then, I would suggest not going for rental properties. Unless you get it from someone like NRIA. These guys not only build the property but also take care of tenant search, rent collection, and maintenance. Best of luck!
