This is the first post in a series which will discuss why I’ve chosen to invest in Dayton, Ohio real estate. After many years or living in both California and Nevada, I felt compelled to move to a location in which I could own property and invest in my future. I went back to the Dayton region because it has a strong rental market, and affordable homes. It is also somewhat ‘off the grid’ for out of state investors – as a smaller city, we do not have the same level of real estate competition as larger metropolises. After a few years of getting my feet wet as an investor, I acquired my real estate license, which has allowed me to help other investors and keep my finger on the pulse of the market.
I’m writing on this topic due to the fact that investing in local homes is the reason why I chose to move back to area, after having lived on the west coast. The goal of my coming articles is to dispel what I believe to be some incorrect assumptions about our region. It is also my goal to provide information which others may find useful. If you are considering investing in real estate, then contact me today to speak with a realtor.
I will be addressing a number of topics over my coming articles. Issues which I’ll discuss include:
- My experience as a Dayton area investor and in assisting investors with the purchases of property
- Why I feel Dayton has a “competitive advantage” over other areas
- Why I don’t consider Dayton to have been “left behind”
- How Dayton is dealing with its opioid problem
- Employment industries in Dayton, and why I believe our economy is a safe bet
There are multiple reasons why I’ve chosen to discuss these topics. First, when one is considering investing, it is always good to hear the perspective of those already in the area. Second, Dayton’s geography is just one factor which I believe sets it apart from other areas. Third, a 2018 national news story portrayed Dayton as falling behind other areas – I actually consider ours to be an area on the upswing. Finally, it is common to be concerned about how the national “opioid crisis” is impacting our community. The fact of the matter, however, is that our area has made great strides in dealing with the topic.
