It depends on what you have.
We have people coming from all over the world looking to invest in New Orleans. What I have found is that most come with the intent to get something for nothing, and fail to take time to realize value. Biggest problem is the lack of trust of obvious deals...whether it be commercial or residential.
To best understand an area, especially an area of rapid growth and rebuilding/renovation opportunities, determine exactly what you want and what is an acceptable investment for you. Then evaluate what level of risk vs return you want over 5 yrs, 10 yrs, etc.
Once you know what you want, put together a spreadsheet that details your needs and find an aggressive knowledgable agent in the particular place you are interested in. With increased risk/better returns, you need an agent who understands construction as much as real estate...and if commercial you want someone who understands the rental rolls throughout the city/town.
Pick a place, and I can help show you how to do it.
