The best rental cities for investors are all in the chilly Midwest. According to RentRange, a provider of market data and analytics for the housing industry, the top three markets during the first quarter of 2017 were districts in Detroit, Cleveland and Milwaukee. “While many markets may have high yields, they may have quite different rent growth percentages and vacancy rates,” said Dennis Cisterna, RentRange Data Services chief revenue officer. “A strong market would generally have a combination of high yields, low vacancies and high rent growth.” []
