2022 Cashflow Markets

Is your real estate market a cash flow market or an appreciation market? It’s safe to say that almost every US city saw extreme appreciation over the past two years. But that’s not always such a good thing. Investors are feeling pinched, trying to figure out how they’re going to pay their bills and keep a portion of the profit. States that were once seeing high cash flow, now are barely breaking even. What cities have any cash flow left, and which are worth investing in? We’ve got our data detective, Dave Meyer, on the case to find which markets make the most sense for cash-flow-first real estate investors. To no surprise, most of these real estate markets are in the Midwest or south of the United States—historically high cash flow markets. But, interestingly enough, many of these markets have also seen serious appreciation, meaning that there is the potential to get the best of both worlds in just one deal. Looking for even more cash flow markets? Dave’s team has put together a top 100 list of the most cash-flowing markets in the United States, stretching from coast to coast.

Great! I'm a little surprised to see this market (Albuquerque) at #66. I purchased a SFR this summer @ $360k, very nice 3/4 bed home in a nice area. Within 5 days of closing I leased it for $2500/mo, tenant paying all utilities incl trash & water. I had 3 good applications to choose from. RTP ratio is about .70%, which is down from a few years ago, but pretty consistent with the market of SFRs here. Also worth noting the lower maintenance costs here due to mild climate, low maintenance/water saving landscaping, lack of natural disasters, and building design/materials.
