That should be a warning sign that it is a bad time to be a buyer getting into the rental real estate business. With far more demand than supply prices will be driven beyond "reasonable" value. From what you say it might be a good time to be selling and getting out of the market.


That's a common misperception. While in areas where the market has skyrocketed completely out of control (which are literally only a few areas of the country), this may be true, in areas where the market is rising, but still affordable this is not true.

It's like trying to decide when to jump ship with stocks.

Long term buy and hold tends to win out in the end.
