This spreadsheet helps calculate and evaluate the draft financial performance of a rental property. Input a few of the basic fields, and the spreadsheet calculates measures like Cash Return, Net Operating Income, Cap Rate and more. Use at your own risk and as a tool and be sure to consult your CPA/team/run your own analysis.
Our mantra is also to ask for the right information at the right time in the process — to create a frictionless process — so if you’re wondering why some input fields are here or not, give us a shout at 678-800-1850.
Refer to our Compliance Guide for more information on staying compliant with Fair Housing, and refer to our Screening like the Pros Guide to learn some tips from professional management companies on how they screen.
These absolutely must be tailored to your own property and circumstances.

Take a look at a sample Georgia lease and see what clauses are important to you. If you have a lease, see what you may want to add, and if you don’t have a lease, familiarize yourself with the important clauses and concepts. We’ve inserted comments throughout highlighting special features of our Lease Generator tool.
Most of what you see in this lease is configurable using the Lease Generator tool. It offers easy questions to create your own lease, state-specific disclosures and state-specific tooltips to help with any statutory requirements.
You want to look for a few lease basics:
- Ensure all tenants are “joint and severally liable” so that if you have multiple tenants and one tenant can’t pay rent, the full rent remains due
- Ensure security deposits are compliant with your state laws. Security deposits are one of the biggest ‘issues’ when it comes to a lease challenge
- Use a “Severability” clause so that if any provision of the lease is found to be unenforceable, the remainder of the lease remains in tact and enforceable
