Market Spotlight: Austin, Texas
Arguably the most important factor to evaluate when selecting a real estate syndication investment is the local market of the target property. The age-old axiom of Location, Location, Location has stood the test of time for good reason. Investors should target markets with growing populations and wage growth which leads to higher rent prices. Combine this with business-friendly environments and a low relative cost of living and you have a winning formula.
