Hey guys my name is Diego (27 years old), i have been learning alot from BiggerPockets podcast and just recently became a member. I am currently located in Northern NJ but i am looking to invest into Allentown PA with the money i have to buy and hold property. I am ready to make this move and want to do it soon. Feel free to drop any types of tips or comments. I appreciate any info. Thanks for your time!

I have one unit in Allentown and a few in Easton. Allentown seems like a pretty hot rental market I was able to rent my 3 bedroom in a week or so with no issue. Taxes are low. Some areas are pretty rough but I am by no means an expert on Allentown. Easton is great but very little inventory right now

 Thank for your answer Chris, that's what drew my attention to Allentown! So now i am trying to find a good agent to take the next step

Piggybacking onto this thread, as I'm also starting to look into investing in Allentown.  It's in fairly close proximity to where I reside and like the town and what it has to offer.

Anyone know of any good brokers/agents to connect with Allentown, specifically geared towards investors?

Thanks!

I’ve been looking at Allentown as well. I don’t know much about it but have been eye balling the opportunities and properties. I’m interested as well on those questions and information
