I took an investment analysis class a few years ago for getting a commercial real estate license (after taking that I then decided I DIDN'T want to get into commercial); but, the analysis is detailed if you want to dive deeper into the actual costs of real estate investing - it's pluses and minuses. A real estate agent with a commercial license probably could do one for you (for a fee, of course). Sticking to simple basics, though, as a friend said to me who also posts on AOL, you're best to have 4 or 5 profitable rental properties so that when you end up with a nasty tenant (and then find yourself out several months rent), the other properties' profits can at least carry you over. This is all my humble opinion.
