The BEST market in the US for Investing in Cash Flow Properties
Why is Jacksonville the best market in the United States?
#1. Great Cash Flow
#2. High Growth/Appreciation Potential
1. Great Cash Flow
When a real estate market has low prices and high rents there is a cash flow opportunity. In Jacksonville, a typical $100,000 home will rent for 20.31% more than the national average. In addition, the median home price is 23.75% less than the national median home price at $153,400; the national average is $201,193. If you compare home prices and rent prices in Jacksonville to the nation, the home price is 23% less, and rents are only 9% less than the national average. This is what presents a unique cash flow opportunity.
This combination of low prices and high rents is only found in not more than a handful of markets across the country. With an extremely favorable rent to median home price ratio it is possible for buy and hold investors to achieve superior rates of return. According to RealtyTrac, Jacksonville is an “excellent place” for making money in the rental business.
2. High Growth/Appreciation Potential
When analyzing a market there are certain metrics that can help you determine if there is growth and appreciation potential. The most common indicators to forecast this are population growth, economic growth and unemployment rate. Take a look at how Jacksonville stacks up:
