The reason primarily relates to various socio-economic factors, market behavior, population density of an area, mortgage interest rate stability, good history of land appreciation, and many more. With that in mind, a location will give you a very good reason for investing in its real estate market when it has plenty of resources available and low and stable mortgage rates.
The most productive real estate investors have typical characteristics such as treating the investments as a serious business and becoming incredibly well-informed about the industry.
