Inman News released a report highlighting metro areas that are expected to “outshine
many other markets in real estate performance this year.” In its report, Inman News
scanned metro areas with populations over 150,000 to find where real estate sales volume is rising, job markets are growing, foreclosure activity is low, sales prices are appreciating,
and home affordability is at high levels
Here are the metro areas topping the list, including the third quarter 2011 median sales price and the percentage change in sales price year-over-year.
1. Raleigh-Cary, N.C.
Median sales price: $224,300
Median sales price change
year-over-year: 7.3 percent
2. Wichita, Kan.
Median sales price: $120,900
Median sales price change
year-over-year: 5.5 percent
3. Rochester, N.Y.

4. Des Moines-West Des

Rochester continues to be a good market for "cash flow." BUT BUYER BE WARNED. (This is what most agents who call themselves INVESTOR BUYERS won't tell you) Most are stating CASH FLOW as Net before Principle, Taxes and Insurance, commonly known as Net before PTI or they give you old numbers based upon the assessed value vs WHAT YOU'LL BE PAYING. You need to determine the total true net for CASH FLOW based upon the NEW TAX AMOUNT and more realistic exp. You will be shocked at what some try to pass off as true cash flow.

If you would like to chat, I have a little package I send out to the dozens of investors that saw the CNN piece and decided they wanted to be landlords. Just drop me a line and I'll send it to you.
