The 7 Signs of a Great Real Estate Market (2022)

Real estate markets can vary street-by-street, county-by-county, and even state-by-state. While some real estate markets may have high cash flow, others will favor appreciation, and the rest may operate on a more hybrid model. But, with the housing market changing so quickly, it’s becoming more viable for in-state investors to stretch their investing areas to out-of-state opportunities.

Don’t worry if you’re a rookie when it comes to out-of-state investing, so is Dave Meyer, our VP of Data and Analytics. For the majority of his investing career, he’s invested in Colorado. Until he moved to Europe, he never thought about investing in other states. But now he’s got the itch to try out other markets that aren’t as low-cash-flow. This is doubly true for all investors as states like Arizona, Texas, and Florida explode in rent growth and home price appreciation.

Maybe you feel out-of-state investing is a little too risky for you. Or, maybe you just don’t know what to look for. That’s exactly why Dave has come up with the seven metrics that every investor should look at before investing in a new area. If you’re able to find all seven of these in one market, let us know in the comments! We promise we won’t try to outbid you…
