The Top Zip Codes for Investment Properties in Your Area in 2020

The numbers are out! In 2020, 34,583 investment properties were listed on MyHouseDeals throughout the country from January to December 2020.  This provides us and MyHouseDeals members with an abundance of data to determine what market areas and deal types were popular in 2020. It also allows members to plan accordingly for 2021.

Below, we break out the four different deal types on our website: wholesale deals, investor-ready foreclosures, motivated seller deals, and motivated MLS deals. You’ll see graphs showing the percentage of each deal type along with which states and cities contain the most investment properties.

Then, we list the cities and zip codes with the greatest number of deals, followed by the average ARV for each state. Check out the maps to see which areas are hot right now for bargain properties. To view the summarized report containing the top five zip codes for wholesale properties for each market area, go here

If you do your own marketing to find potential investment properties, target properties in these zip codes because they are more likely to have motivated sellers and/or properties needing repair. Both of these conditions can lead to greater discounts and profits for investors like you. 

Keep reading for these breakdowns of hot investment areas so you can make 2021 your year for real estate investing.

As mentioned in our Q4 2020 report, foreclosures saw a significant decrease from our 2019 yearly report, where they made up ~60% of the properties listed on MyHouseDeals. This is largely due to the foreclosure moratoriums instituted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
