I realize that this question is fairly old, but if you're still looking to find investment properties I may be able to help. Contact me for more information about the Scranton Area.


You want to invest in properties that you are comfortable with. If you are up to the task of self-managing rental properties, the general rule is: The better shape the property is in, the better tenants you will attract and the easier your job will be. Of course there are exceptions to every rule and thoroughly screening your prospective tenants will be important. You should begin by seeking out properties where desirable tenants (by your definition of desirable) want to live. For example, if you want to rent to college students, then look near the local universities and search craigslist to see where college students are currently posting for roommates. Once you have developed a target market, I can help you search for available properties and even set up automatic notifications for new property listings.

If you're planning to flip houses, then I suggest you become close friends with a few contractors. That's probably a bit tougher to do in this area, but not impossible. Your process of identifying properties would be similar only you would be looking for areas with high sales volume and large price variations between older and newly renovated properties.
