To find out about an area go to search for ARM certified property managers. Call 5 ask them what sides of the city they like/dislike and why. Ask what they see them selling for and what expenses are by category. Ask for market occupancy and rents. Ask if they know anything coming up for sale.

You can also search for the RMP (Residential Management Professional) and MPM (Master Property Manager) certified.
