You have the ability to model purchasing a new primary residence and renting your old home for income in My Plan. We’ll do this in 3 steps. First, we’ll model the relocation of your primary home. Next, we’ll enter a future home purchase to include the “old home” in our plan, since you hasn’t actually been sold. Finally, we’ll set up a passive income stream for the rent you hope to receive from your old home.
