At the current time, there are very few multifamily homes on the market and the few that are go under agreement fast. Those that don’t, are either over priced or something is seriously wrong with them.
Because of the aforementioned, the price is being driven up. Why not consider a single family as an investment? There are more single family homes on the market, and days on market are double that of multifamily properties. Just like buyers, renters will pay a premium not to share a wall with another tenant. But-know your market and delead the property before you list it for rent!
