I'm looking into investing into real estate and rental properties. I live in NYC, and want to check out properties in Syracuse.
An agent gave me a list of his listings and I'm looking into one of them on Peck Avenue. I'm trying to run a "craigslist test" (something I just made up), where I switch perspectives and become the "renter" and look for housing in that area. However, when I look up "peck avenue syracuse housing for rent" I don't see any results.
Is that a good sign that signifies that this area gets rented out easily so there are no listings? Or does that mean there is no rental market there and I should stay away from that area? These two answers are completely opposite, so I want to make sure I don't get the wrong idea.
