Keep your eye on the neighborhoods in which big businesses try to get into. Is a Panera Bread or a McDonald’s requesting local permission to build? If you start to notice corporate interest in a particular neighborhood, that’s a good sign that an area is about to see a lot of growth. Want a lucrative investment property? Paying attention at city council meetings can be helpful. First of all, they might know something you don’t. Remember, they aren’t going to waste their money developing if their research departments feel the market doesn’t have potential. Also, once they are there, renters and buyers generally find the area more appealing. They bring job opportunities and convenience.

Also keep an eye on future plans for developments like parks or street upgrades. If a city has the go ahead to put in a new municipal park, think of how much more appealing the properties will be for buyers. Paying attention to these trends that indicate growth can help you maximize your profits when house flipping or purchasing rental properties.
