Absolutely!! Are you kidding me? Never been a better time. Negative what?

Not in my market - shortage of good rentals, high demand by tenants. Rental rates are raising. Property values are up. New tax reform by President Trump favors real estate investments. Really, does it get any better?????

It's the perfect investment vehicle!!!!

Personally, I would not but, I do have investor clients who are coming from other states and our prices are highly desirable to them. One in particular has sold a $1M property in CA and is buying three $350K properties here to replace that one (via a 1031 Exchange). 

Every home that I list under $250K here, receives multiple Offers from investors so, they are still buying here...but, I am not! The market needs to cool a bit before I resume investment buying!

We have people looking, but no where near as many investors as we did coming out of the recession.  It is hard to make investment property pencil with the inflated prices if they need to finance their purchase. But for cash buyers, with the inflated rents, it still makes sense.

Yes. None of the issues you state determine if a property is a good investment........ for me.

The profit on good investment real-estate is made the day it is purchased. Bad investment real estate is in hope of profit at some point in time and under circumstances of which others control.

there's an ideal time to buy and a time to wait.... we'll crash again... buyers are starting to wise up and wait....sellers are not out of control if they want and need to sell...

Actually I have not had an investor for local sales. Everyone is asking about Midwest multi-families.  1-2% market cap does not make sense other then 29% yearly appreciation in some local neighborhoods.
