Ive just started studying, and taking steps to start investing in real estate as Carlton Sheets, and others are teaching. Creative financing, low down etc…
I live in San Luis Obispo, Ca. The market here is extremely high. At this point people can sell any piece of junk for 250,000. People will get in line to buy anything. I have been advised to buy properties that produce 1% of purchase price in rent per month. Everything Ive seen is more like .5% The local classifieds has no signs of creative selllers whatsoever.
Im wondering if it is wise to look into investing in income properties in another county, or state even. I plan to do my best to find some flexible sellers around here, but I cant help but wonder if there are better markets to work in from here. Any advise would help.
