Market research is an incredibly critical step that requires a lot of thought and analysis.
On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m sharing some data on the most overinflated housing markets in the US, and why you should avoid investing in those markets. Tune into this episode to hear the 10 worst housing markets for investors in 2022!

In my market research checklist video, one of the most important things I talk about is appreciation. We look for a sweet spot when it comes to appreciation.. Meaning that I don’t invest primarily for appreciation, but I still like to see some consistent growth. We want average appreciation; not sky high, but not non-existent either.
But if you’re new to investing, you might think that a highly appreciated market is a benefit, but here’s why it’s not: 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.
As you know, everything that has happened in the housing market over the past couple years has led to higher prices in most, if not all markets. That being said, there are certain housing markets that are extremely hot and overinflated, and those are the 10 markets I want you to avoid.
