California is unusually bad for real estate investing, but a great place to visit (and probably live, I'd guess). For real estate investing, I'd say the best place is the middle of the country (Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas). Still great cash flow and low prices. If those places don't excite you and you're looking for a good Quality of life and lower prices, I'd say go for TX, Carolina Coast or Oregon (or any place except CA, NY, NJ, MA).
Bottom line, go where you want and learn the market. You can really succeed anywhere with hard work.
