Chicago, IL—Investors are consistently turning to real estate as a stable haven for their investment dollars. What may be surprising is that the top investment locales for 2019 are not gateway cities, according to real estate tech marketing firm SetSchedule’s new housing report. It identifies 10 cities as the top markets to target year: Indianapolis, IN; Oklahoma City, OK; Atlanta, GA; Las Vegas, NV; Phoenix, AZ; Cincinnati, OH; Cape Coral, FL; Louisville, KT; Orlando, FL and Raleigh, NC.

“What makes these cities a good investment are their popularity, growth, stability in pricing and neighborhood factors,” explains Roy Dekel, CEO of SetSchedule. “We also look at the volatility of the area—how low was the neighborhood at the lowest point, and how high at the highest? Where is it now? Does the area have a high crime rate? Does the area hold interest or draw from vacationers, employers, school district, cost of living, activities, etc.? What are the current comparable sold home prices? How does this home or area compare? Can you make a profit now? Can you make a profit later? What are the risk factors?”
