Madison City Wisconsin Voted Best Place To Live in America In 2014

Madion City Wisconsin took top honors of the best place to live in America in 2014 according to  the newly released Top 100 Best Places to Live list by Livability.com, Madison City .Livability’s Top 100 Cities (see full list below), which is the culmination of months of exclusive research into what factors most influence the livability of America’s small to mid-sized cities. More than 30 states are represented, from coast to coast. The study was done in partnership with the research team at the Martin Prosperity Institute. The Institute, directed by Richard Florida, is part of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and is the leading think-tank on the role of location, place and city-regions in global economic prosperity.

More than 2,000 cities were evaluated in this landmark study. We analyzed more than 40 data points that were then grouped into eight categories – economics, housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, education and health care. The eight scores were weighted based on an exclusive survey conducted for Livability.com by Ipsos Public Affairs, a leading global market research firm. Respondents were asked about factors that make their communities better places to live, as well as the factors they would consider in selecting another city. Every city with a population between 20,000 and 350,000 was considered.”The cities at the top of the list were often home to a major institution like a university, hospital or state capital,” says Matt Carmichael, Livability’s editor. “Institutions like that help these smaller cities compete in terms of sports, culture, jobs and entertainment.” – See more at: http://www.worldpropertychannel.com

  Best Rental Markets for Property  Investments Based On RealtyTrac Reports.

Best Rental Markets Nationwide with the highest return on your money as rentals.

Best Places to Invest in Rental Properties in the United States.

Best Places to Invest in Rental Properties in the United States.

RealtyTrac’s Q2, 2014 Residential Property Rental Report, which ranked the best markets for buying residential rental properties along with the best markets for renting to baby boomers and the best markets for renting to Millennials, found that investors buying U.S. residential rental property in the second quarter of 2014 are getting an average annual return of 9.97 percent, down from an average annual return of 10.60 percent a year ago.

Top 25 overall markets for buying rental properties

RealtyTrac factored in unemployment rates along with annual gross rental yields to select the 25 best markets for buying residential property rentals. Counties in the top 25 all had unemployment rates of 4.5 percent or lower in April 2014 — well below the national average of 6.3 percent — and had an annual gross rental yield of 9 percent or higher.

The three best markets for buying residential property rentals were: Anderson County, S.C. in the Anderson metro area (15.33 percent annual gross rental yield); Woodbury County, Ia., in the Sioux City metro area (13.02 percent); and Pickens County, S.C., in the Greenville-Maudline-Easley metro area (13.00 percent).

Other metro areas with counties in the top 25 best markets for buying residential property rentals were Gainesville, Fla., Washington D.C., Columbia, S.C., Pittsburgh, Pa., Columbus, Ohio, Charleston, S.C. and Omaha, Neb.

“We have not had the apartment building development that we really need leading to a decreased supply in available rentals, which is causing rental rates to increase,” said Sheldon Detrick, CEO of Prudential Detrick/Alliance Realty, covering the Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla. markets, both of which had counties in the top 25 best markets for buying residential property rentals. “We are also noticing that the new qualified mortgage rules are restricting many first time home buyers from being able to qualify, which is adding to the demand for rental properties.”

Top-overall-markets-for-buying-rental-properties 25 markets for renting to baby boomers:

Annual gross rental yields for the top 25 baby boomer rental markets ranged from 5.50 percent in Placer County, Calif., in the Sacramento metro area up to 20.93 percent in Pasco County, Fla., in the Tampa Bay-St. Petersburg metro area. Pasco County was joined by 15 other Florida counties in 12 other Florida metro areas in the top 25.

Other metro areas with counties in the top 25 for renting to baby boomers were Lake Havasu City-Kingman, Ariz., Wilmington, N.C., Daphne-Fairhope-Foley, Ala., Prescott, Ariz., Asheville, N.C., Seaford, Del., Bend, Ore., and Hilton Head, S.C.
