Careful. HUD fair market rents also include utilities costs. In my area they are always low. Find the real estate firm in your area that has the largest property management department. (or the most properties under management). Talk to the manager. if you can describe the property, condition and location he can probably give you a very accurate estimate of a fair market rent.
