You won't get reliable results for a property search by posting an open question on Trulia. Establish some relationships with brokers in the areas you find interesting. That way they feel some connection to you and are more likely to assist you in finding a great area/property. Either that or use Trulia to do the search yourself!
That's why I would call your attention to 208 East 70th Street - #1G which is the lowest priced studio in Lenox Hill (Upper East Side), an area dense with young single persons generating constant heavy demand for small apartment rentals, and bears the lowest monthly maintenance of all current offerings, so that a 4% ROI is possible at a monthly rent of apx $1400 (versus $1500-1700 for other studios under 500 sf) on a purchase price of $249,700. The building is a low-rise post-war elevator building with live-in Super' and laundry in the basement.
Othewise, I would pass over your inquiry due to your specification of 2BRs and 1.5 baths (hard to find with the right price and the right rent potential).
-how much are you looking to spend?
-are you looking for beach towns or mountain escapes?
-condo/ town home or single family or multi-family?
W/O a little more on what you actually desire, there are many destinations; but why not narrow the field if possible.
Besides being a broker with Brown Harris Stevens in NY, I work with Houlihan Lawrence in Westchester. Check out our greatr website. I have a property in mind with RIver views, 2BR, 2 baths, in a community that offers tennis and swimming. If you want I will send you the listing please contact me.
Don't forget New Jersey and Connecticut, which are separate real estate license areas. (New Jersey has some of the highest property taxes in the nation, but if the rent numbers work, that might be OK for you or your buyer.)
Manhattan and Brooklyn
