Appetites Are Increasing For Middle Market Investments

Investors from major cities are looking outside of their local competitive real estate markets - and for good reason.  Competitive rental markets like NYC, San Francisco and Seattle, to name a few, are slow to return strong earnings to investors. Instead, experienced investors are gaining an appetite for "middle markets", where rental price trends point to better long-term appreciation.

In 2019, the Cleveland Metro Area trended upwards of 5% year-over-year rent growth, while many flagship cities like Boston, Los Angeles and Chicago posted growth at or below the national average of 2.9%.  
These rental trends are influenced by the expanding presence of major employers in cost-effective, highly educated middle-market territories.
