Morristown is a great rental area. Very much in demand because of location - train, downtown with shops, restaurants & activities. For rental, you can do single family or condo/townhouse - they are all in demand.

Montclair near the train station is always a very good location for people commuting in to the NYC.

The Shore area is always a strong market and you can use the house in the summer yourself, too! We rent seasonally and annually. The hard part is finding something that will keep you in the black each month with 20-25% down.
If you are interested in learning more and receiving listing info, let me know.
If this is your first investment property, you should have a copy of the NJ landlord/tenant law handbook. I can email it to you. Just reach out to me via Trulia or my website below.

One of the best rental properites is in the Mt. Club in Morris Plains. I have recently listed and sold a condo in the complex. They are priced well for an investor and they have a good rental history.
The upside to an invsetor is the maintenance fee includes heat and hot water. It also includes tthe exterior mainrenance and roof. Therefore, an investor does not have to necessarily be very handy.
With as little as 10% down an investor can have positive cash flow.

The demand for rentals continues to grow. There is actually a rental shortage in some areas in New Jersey as well. It's really about the numbers and your expectations for monthly cash flow and lastly if your desire to manage rental property.

Good luck!

The first questions you need to ask yourself. How "hands on" are you. Do you want a "turn key" property or one that needs renovation? Do you waat a long term investment or a short term investment? Are you looking for single family or multi family?

I have 4 investment properties of my own and have had a number of transactions representing clients very recently. If you need some advice, I will be happy to chat further with you.

Morristown has the strongest rental market. I know of new construction town homes coming to market soon. They rent for about $2400/mo.
