Investing in Phoenix

Asked by Pj, Pasadena, CA Tue Nov 27, 2012

I am sure this question has been asked many times but the posts I saw were almost a year old, so I am asking this question again considering things might have changed.

What are the good places to buy investment property in Phoenix? I don't want anything too risky and am fine with a safer option and lesser profit. I am thinking to keep this for as long as the property does not go down.
My budget is max $140K for 2BR/2BA for a condo/townhome.

I have been looking at: Tempe (near University Dr), Paradise Valley (near 52nd street & Shea blvd).
-What will be the typical rent in these areas?
-How easy/difficult is it to find renter's in these areas?

First things first are you looking to buy this property with cash or are you investing with a loan? If you are investing with cash and are just looking for a safe longterm place to put your money, there are less stressful ways to invest in real estate in the Phoenix area. REIT's (Real estate investment trusts) are a great way to put your money into real estate in a particular area without having to be an expert in property management.

If you are looking to invest and be a landlord Juan's advice is pretty solid for the area's you asked about. In that price range personally I would suggest a condo in South Scottsdale. That area has seen significant price increases and you are likely to get long term renters with families as opposed to seasonal clients in PV and Students in Tempe.

As a successful investor myself, I'm happy to talk anytime and if need be refer you to one of my agents who can help you find something.

Tempe, Scottsdale, and the Paradise Valley/Phoenix area are great and rent well. All three areas will bring anywhere from 750-900 mo depending on the complex a few others can bring in more within your budget but the average will be within that range.

Tempe Market you will have the most renters looking during the summer end of school year looking for a place for the fallowing semester and the winter break time.

In Tempe and the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Paradise Valley border area focus on newer units if possible. For Scottsdale Old Town Scottsdale is always great but the units will be much older.

Feel free to call or email me and we can discuss more and break down each location, inventory, and rents.
