Hey James, There have been a few postings about Strawberry Mansion lately but I'll relay what I've said before. Some of my investors who do section 8 rentals like this area due to it's proximity to Brewerytown and Fairmount Park. You can buy a sizeable house for around 30-35k pretty easily, and with section 8 you are automatically getting most of your rent due every month. I don't really think this area is for new investors even though purchase prices are low, but if done correctly, you can definitely cash flow out there. Hopefully the area will start to boom as Brewerytown/hardwood start getting priced out!
@Alexander Brian Frederick I must have missed the previous postings re: Strawberry Mansion (new to the community forums). Appreciate the insight!
