Where Investors are Buying Houses in 2017


#21

#22

Talk about buying in the middle of nowhere… :rofl:


#23

Everyone wants “beachfront” properties…


#24

I was going to say never buy anything more than an hour of driving from the coast, but was afraid @Elt1 might retaliate… :rofl:


#25

Or, Mr. Austin…


#26

I don’t know, can you reach the Gulf of Mexico from Austin in an hour? :wink:


#27

It’s a great area to raise a family. I have a few friends that live there. They claim the airport is “international” but it’s probably 1 flight a week to Canada.


#28

Um… in that case I don’t think I’m very family oriented… :laughing:


#29

I have beach front 150 miles from the coast.
Michigan has Lake Michigan… but land has little value there… I think weather is as important as coastal access
The Midwest is too cold…


#30

Um… that didn’t stop Toronto from booming…


#31

Toronto is the southern most part of Canada… practically tropical compared to 90% of their country


#32

Yes but still more north of Detroit and probably colder.


#33

Different country… I don’t think Toronto and Detroit have too much in common. Immigrants to Canada pick Vancouver or Toronto… Immigrants to the US pick California


#34

They have nothing in common except the same geography and climate.


#35

Of course they do, it offers the most free stuff.


#36

Detroit is 83% Black
Toronto is not

#37

Wow, it’s only 83% now? I think it used to be over 90%.


#38

Tampa is too far…I would not go more than one hour to buy an investment property.


#39

Lots of Chinese immigrants go to Toronto and Vancouver. For a time many girls who won the Miss Hong Kong pageants come from those two cities. I should have gone to UBC… :disappointed_relieved:

You could’ve ended up being the nerd that nobody wanted. Good thing you didn’t go there and tortured yourself… :laughing:
