If you are in the market for a real estate investment and also love warm weather and barbecue, you are in luck. Five of the top cities where investors have a chance at a sizable return are in Texas or the Carolinas, according to an analysis by Curbed. Finding the right home is stressful enough, especially if a homebuyer intends to add the house to their investment portfolio. Based on metro-level real estate studies, Curbed conducted a meta-analysis to help buyers get a better sense of the real estate landscape across the country.

Buying a home will likely be the most expensive and complex purchase a family or individual ever makes. Deciding where we live depends on so many factors, from job prospects and proximity to family and friends to the appeal of the surrounding neighborhood. Looking for the best return on the sizable investment of purchasing a home adds another layer to the process.
To get a sense of which markets across the country would be best for buying a home strictly as an investment, Curbed conducted a meta-analysis, looking at metro-level real estate studies by the Urban Land Institute, Realtor.com, and the National Association of Realtors. It’s important to note that conditions vary considerably within a city and surrounding suburbs. But after crunching the numbers, these five metros in Texas and the Carolinas came out on top.
