I am currently based in NYC, looking to invest in Ohio in particular near metro areas, i hear that Dayton, Columbus and Cleveland are areas worth paying attention, thoughts?
Add Cincinnati to your list also.
Ohio in general is great for Cashflow investors. You do have to be very specific about your neighborhood though.
There are a lot of good deals here in Dayton.
Unfortunately, there are also plenty of deals that look good only on paper.
@james wise can help out.
My team & I are heavily involved in the Cleveland market. When looking into an area it is good to get an idea of the different types of neighborhoods and asset classes that you could buy and the types of tenants that come along with those.
Here is a Cleveland neighborhood grading map that can help you in deciding the specific areas you are looking to invest in.
@Joel Custodio Ohio has some great cashflow! I currently own a 48 unit in Columbus and looking at a 27 unit in Cincinnati
