Mid-West vs. East & West Coast

2 Replies

I spoke to a local agent (who was awesome) over the weekend and she told me if I'm looking to invest in a Multi-Family home in the LA area, I'm looking at $600,000. If I had close to 30% of that to put down I wouldn't mind, just so I can stay in the area, as that would be ideal for me. After speaking to a broker from the Mid-West yesterday I'm thinking that might be a better start for me as a duplex was going for $79,000. I have the layout of all the numbers, because he was kind enough to send me an example. If there is someone who has advise/tips or is willing to look at the numbers that would be great.

Thanks fellow BPers. good day,
