Of course, deals can be found in any market, and a successful landlord can be made in any market. But it is a whole lot easier when legislation is on your side. I love this infographic from RentCafé. It gives a great base to start from when analyzing different markets. This is just one factor when analyzing markets and certainly not the end-all-be-all. In fact, if you look at this graphic it shows Hawaii as the worst place in the US to be a landlord. That may be true based on the legislation, but we own several properties in Hawaii and do just fine. Again, this is just one factor. Use it as you will to help with your particular market analysis.
