In an in-depth, data-driven special report, “10 Best Markets for Real Estate Investors,” Inman News analyzed hundreds of housing markets nationwide to develop a list of those that may be best suited for investors.
The full report — available at no charge at www.inman.com/reports/10-markets-invest/ — took into account economic, housing and demographic data from sources including median sales price data from CoreLogic, loan data from Lender Processing Services, foreclosure sales and discounts statistics from Realty Trac, InvestorScores from SmartZip, walkability scores from Walk Score, and population and unemployment data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The data analyzed suggested that the 10 best markets for investors are: Indianapolis-Carmel, Ind.; Winchester, Va.-W.Va.; Gainesville, Fla.; Tucson, Ariz.; Tallahassee, Fla.; Hagerstown-Martinsburg, Md.-W.Va.; Salt Lake City; Richmond, Va.; Gainesville, Ga.; and Winston-Salem, N.C.
Seven out of the 10 markets are in the South, two are in the West, and one is in the Midwest. None of the markets are in the Northeast.
