One of the most popular topics I get asked about is rental markets. People always want to know, “is this city a good rental market?” The truth is, market research takes a long time—months, even up to a year sometimes. So nine times out of ten, I can’t tell you if your city is a good rental market. I just don’t have the data.
But what I can tell you is what you should look for in a stable rental market. One of the things that I look for in a market is slow and steady appreciation. If a market is overvalued, it’s going to be hard to make a solid investment there. On today’s show, I’m taking you through the top 10 overpriced rental markets that you should not invest in!

If you’ve watched my rental market checklist video, you’ll know that one of the top things on that checklist is appreciation. And for me, there’s really a sweet spot when it comes to appreciation. I don’t invest primarily for appreciation, but I do like to see some consistent growth. We’re looking for average appreciation. Not crazy high, not super low either.
Because if you invest in a market with crazy appreciation, chances are you’re going to be overpaying for the property – and in turn making lower returns.
I always follow this guideline about appreciation, but now more than ever, this is something you’re not going to want to overlook. The pandemic has contributed to hot markets in many areas – and the last thing I want for you is to get into a real estate deal that doesn’t pay off.
A new study from Florida Atlantic University looks at America’s most overvalued housing markets. Today I’m going to share some data from this study – specifically, the top 10 most overvalued markets in the US.
These are cities where you will not want to invest – because you’ll overpay and end up with low returns.
