Sorry about that, pasting from a spreadsheet apparently does not work.

Right off the top of my head ... How old is the Duplex? Depending on the age, I think you want to put aside more money, just in case lots more work needs to be done in the very near future.  The rent price compare to purchase price is really very good.

How long are the leases of the tenants? Depending if they might be leaving soon, you should consider some $ for recruiting the next tenant as well. How expensive are similar houses in the area?
