These are traditionally strong rental areas. The answer to your question really depends on what a specific property will pencil out at. If you cover your costs with rental income, that's great--But of course you've got to buy something that will appreciate enough so that you could sell if you had to. There is a ton of inventory out there, as you know. Price sells everything, so if you can find a quality property that allows you to offer a reasonable rental rate, you should have no problem attracting renters.
