I am originally from brooklyn and now live in staten island. Buy and holds seem impossible here. Also being a realtor i know that the people here are vicious... Any thoughts?
What makes you say buy and holds seem impossible? What's your target cap rate?
I am looking for at least 8. I know thats really high for the area. But I feel like for the time and effort, if I get less than that I might as well go with a reputable turn-key like Chris Clothier and Memphis invest.

I think the whole 5 boroughs of NY is pretty much low on cap rate.
