Well, I understand your reasoning and believe me, it’s tempting to consider moving out of the area when the house across the street just sold last week for $865,000. (No kidding!)
But I do not own the house I live in, (my boyfriend does), and I have not made my millions yet! (Just starting out and hoping to get into some Lonnie deals or SOMETHING so I can become financially free in time). So my market research in my area tells me that other areas of the country may be more “investor friendly” than this one.
And I hate to say this, but the Santa Clara Valley, where I live, has the best weather in the world! That and computer chips have made the real estate so valuable here.
I’m starting to look a little further afield-to areas that are growing around us, maybe one hundred miles away. It’s either that or move to another state. Or try to long distance invest, which I hear is not such a good idea.
Anyway, challenges make life interesting-right?
