I am not a pro but here is what I do.
I cover an area of about 5 post office zip codes. It is about 5 miles wide and 8 miles long. (of course I will go outside there if the deal is right) I try to focus on one side of town that way all the properties are kind of grouped together. The area is probably 75% lower middle class neighborhoods, thousands of homes, relatively low crime area, schools average to above average. There are 7 highways that are at least 4 lanes wide running through my area, so there is plenty of easy advertising with road signs. (I just sold a new l/o today in my area, I got my price, got a $2000 cashier check for option consideration and $150 cash flow, and did it all in 13 days on the market with 4 roadside signs and no newspaper advertising)
BTW I am in Orlando, 3 county population of 1 million +
Hope that helps.
