Considering how tight the rental market is, you should be able to cash flow your investment even if you cant sell. I can provide you with a spreadsheet that forecasts cash on cash returns and equity buildup over a range of time. You should make your decision based on whether your investment makes since whether you see appreciation or not. Over time real estate has historically risen in value if you can wait. Small, mountain tourist towns are a great place to invest, because they contain moderately priced, single family homes in owner occupied neighborhoods. Email me at Andrew@buyeadville.com.
