  3. Schools: If you're dealing with family-sized accommodations, you need a consider the quality of local schools.
  4. Crime: No one wants to live next door to the real-life Breaking Bad.
  5. Job Market: Locations with growing employment opportunities tend to attract more people – meaning more tenants.
  6. Amenities: Check the potential neighborhood for perks that attract renters.

  8. Number of Listings and Vacancies: Too many vacancies in one area? That’s like neighborhood wentthe bad.
  9. Rents: Rental income will be the bread-and-butter of your rental property, so you need to know what the average rent in the area is.
