A recent Wall Street Journal article cast a spotlight on self-directed real estate investing and shared that an increasing number of investors are investing in properties in Cleveland due to favorable pricing. Investors are flocking to Ohio from as far away as California to take advantage of the housing prices and resale potential.
As we’ve highlighted, some Equity Trust self-directed investors are interested in real estate as an alternative investment but are priced out of their local market or have knowledge of other markets in the country.
For these reasons and more, investors have found benefits in investing in a rental property or fix-and-flip outside of their home state.
