Best locations for rentals in Pennsylvania?

2 Replies

Hello BP! I am a new investor, also new in real estate period. Currently I have a good amount of money saved up (I believe) to start. I am looking for the best locations in Pennsylvania to invest in rental properties. I am also open to other locations - right now I am based out of NY but the market here is extremely expensive. Any help/guidance would be great! Thank you.

Hi JR,

You might have better luck if you post your question in the regional specific forum of BP. I'm not at all familiar with PA, so I can't give you any details. 
A fellow I trust suggested looking first in markets where you have friends/family/boots on the ground who can be local guides, and only going into a market cold if you have no other choice. Good luck!

@Jr Trotta I can speak for buying in PA. I work and invest in that market and its very investor friendly and affordable. You still need to learn the market and make good business decisions but it is absolutely a place to consider.
