Columbus, OH. I’m biased because I live and invest here. Consider any mid size city that made it the top list for Amazon HQ. you don’t have to do they research on why that city is attractive, they did it for you. Same strategy as Burger King, just go across the street from McDonalds.

Raleigh is a great area and appreciating with no sign of slowing. Great quality of life there too.

We are really enjoying the Lexington KY area. There are many types of investment properties in and around this area. Always growing.
