Regarding the debate about new versus exist- ing properties, the firm’s founder says “both can have their advantages. We are seeing more demand for new properties. We are seeing investors trend toward new construction, and especially new fourplexes, in growth markets. They can offer lower maintenance costs now, and can be highly attractive to tenants.” Norada prides itself on being “market agnostic. In other words, not simply promoting and push- ing one product because it is the only inventory they have or know. They constantly analyze about 400 markets across the US and make recommendations according to current dynamics, emerging trends, and individual investor goals and resources.

WHERE TO INVEST NOW Asked about his take on some of the latest data, which shows some challenges in markets like San Fran- cisco, Marco tells us that “While everyone has individual goals, and what’s best for their portfolios may be different, I’d never recommend investing in San Fran or other ‘bub- ble markets’. All real estate is local, and that means looking at each local economy when investing.”
