I have been in real estate since 1979. This is a great time to buy investment property. You must be able to afford to have it sit empty if needed though. Don't bite off more than you can chew!

Elizabeth,  You're right ... nearly all rentals have some vacancy rate, but in our market in central Ohio, we're finding that rental prices are climbing.  The demand is high and the availability of clean, safe housing is slim.  So many people have lost their homes to foreclosure and are in desperate need of family housing.

As Realtors, we need to get the word out to the consumer that this (owning rental homes) can be a good option for the "mix"  of products to the retirement nest egg along with stocks/bonds/etc.

It IS a great time - but buyers are still a bit nervous - Although I'm seeing more come out of the woodwork than in early 2010 for sure

Marcia, thanks for your comment.  The media unfortunately tends to paint an overall bad picture of home ownership.  When one looks at the details of the reports potential buyers can see where they just might be in a position to take advantage of the misfortune of others - sad but true.

And yes, market activity has definately picked up this year - here's hoping that 2012 is even stronger!
