Portland Isnt The Best City For Those Investing In Rentals But Then Again Its Not The Worst
Dated: April 1 2014
RealtyTrac, an Irvine, Calif.-based real estate research firm, tallies up the returns investors can expect across the country. While Portland didn’t make to either the top or the bottom, the four-county area generally offers poor returns, RealtyTrac reports.
Washington County, with a median home price for a three-bedroom home of $260,000 and average monthly rental rate of $1,359, translates into a 6 percent yield for investors.
It found comparable figures for both Multnomah and Clackamas counties, earning all three a "poor" rating.
Clark County fared somewhat better, offering investors an 8 percent return, largely because home prices are lower.
In contrast, the best markets for investors offer 18 percent to 30 percent returns and include spots such as Detroit (30 percent), Tampa, Fla. (20 percent) and Syracuse, N.Y. (18 percent).
New York topped the worst cities list with an average yield of 3 percent.
