How to analyze a market

2 Replies

Hi All,

I am an OOS investor trying to expand into the US market. 

I started making connections in various states andt hings are getting serious. My thoughts were it doesn't really matters where to invest as long I get good deals and find trustworthy people that can manage projects for me, but now the situation is more complicated since I am starting to develope serious connections in various markets and I have to choose where to put my money. Moreover there is a great significance of where to invest for other reasons such as appreciation probability, stabilized or increasing tenants pool and maybe more aspcets I didn't think of.

My questions is what do you think the criterias that will help me compare the different markets and more importantly how to  get the data needed for making the comparison.

Thanks for reading my post! Good luck to you all,

@Isaac Geller I have a detailed breakdown on my blog but your best bet would to be focus on: 

  • Population growth
  • Jobs growth
  • Economic growth
  • Affordability 

Essentially, if you have high population growth but low-level job growth that market might not be good for your. Alternatively, a high population growth rate with quality job growth is a harbinger for better things to come. 

PM me if you need any assistance. I deal with this exact scenario every day for myself and our international investors.
