Also, as far as investment, are you looking for long term equity appreciation, monthly cash flow, or diversification of your money? Do you have an idea of what type of tenant you want to attract? As location is going to play a part in your potential tenant.
Purchasing near, hospitals, colleges and Universities is one way to have demand for rental. Our market for rentals and purchases is very strong and as the other agents mentioned competitive.
Come on up to the Sacramento Area and take a tour... You can do a lot here for $300,000.
There are some nice areas up here that will rival any area down there for that kind of money. Great neighborhoods, schools, with all the amenities to make it an easy one to rent and a great investment.
I hope this helps
Make it a great day
