Maintenance Allocation

If your rental property is in good maintained order, is there a general percentage of your rent that you put away for future maintenance issues or does it all vary too greatly depending on the house?

I am trying to plan where I put my income. A percentage goes to the loan payment, a percentage to mtc allocation, taxes & insurance, future investments, labor, etc. Then, there is protection from taxes and extra principal payments.

Thoughts? Thanks

If you figure that your operating expenses (everything except the mortgage payment) will be 50% of the gross rents, you’ll be very close (assuming that the property is properly managed).
