Best Market buy and hold Multi Family properties (3-4 units)?

3 Replies

Hi guys, I am primarily interested in investing in multifamily units (3 or 4 units). I plan to utilize the FHA loan and live in one of the units for the first year (or longer). I currently live in the Portland, Oregon area so it seems it is one of the worst markets for my buy and hold strategy at the moment. I am willing to relocate anywhere inside the United States because my job permits. I would prefer to say in warmer climates. My question is this: If I wanted to find some of the best markets to invest in multifamily units with a buy and hold strategy, how would I go about starting to research which areas would be the best to start targeting? Thanks,
