In terms of the return in any real estate investment, you might look up "capitalization rate" for insight. A 20 or 30 per cent return is huge these days. Most investors are looking in the area of 8-to-10 right now and count themselves very fortunate if they capture it. Think in terms of what the return on investment is in other investment vehicles and you will have a better idea of what to expect and plan for. Real estate is still a very good bet for the long-term investor. Good luck!
