Definitely there is a good rental market in 95116. If you are priced correctly, then you should be able to rent your unit within a couple weeks. When buying for investment (both rental and resale) you should look at the property with a certain focus. Certain bedrooms and baths combo rent better than others. A small sized 2 bed/2 bath is preferrable to a spacious 1 bedroom unit. Also, certain ammenities, while not hugely beneficial to higher rents, will make big impact when you sell the unit (garages, outdoor private space, top floor units, etc). You may also consider a duplex/fourplex which will eliminate the HOA fees and give you a far better GRM (gross rent multiplier).
