Indianapolis and Detroit are popular markets for real estate investors due to affordable prices and good cash flow. Both markets offer strong ROI, but with very different risk/reward factors. Investors choosing between the two markets must consider their long term hold plans and risk tolerance.
Investors are drawn to Indianapolis for good, stable cash flow while others are flocking to Detroit betting on future equity appreciation. Detroit home prices dropped 60% from their peak level in 2006 and many investors are banking on values to come back. The law of physics doesn't necessarily work in reverse however, and what goes down doesn't always go back up.
Detroit's housing woes were not caused by overbuilding and appreciation like Phoenix, Las Vegas and Atlanta. Instead, Detroit's housing market collapse was a result of major job losses in the automotive industry. Detroit has lost 323,400 jobs since 2005 and has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. Although the auto industry has shown signs of recovery and home prices seem to have stabilized, the economic recovery remains fragile and uncertain. Home prices remain 40 percent below peak levels. Vacant properties make up 23 percent of the total housing and the city has about 30,000 vacant homes.
Indianapolis and Detroit both offer attractive return on investment opportunities to investors, however, with very different risk-reward levels. Both markets offer comparable cash on cash returns. The difference is in the future upside equity potential.
Detroit is best suited for the more speculative investor seeking to maximize their ROI through the potential for future equity appreciation and can tolerate a higher risk factor.
Indianapolis is well suited for the more conservative investor that is looking for strong, stable monthly cash flow and preservation of equity. Local Market Monitor, Inc rated Indianapolis as the 3rd safest market for conservative real estate investors.
