Can you resell quickly and with a high probability of appreciation?
What is the average rental return you can aim for?
Is the city vibrant? Are there any development projects (schools, transport, infrastructure) that will increase the attractiveness of the city?
Are rents capped? Is a rental permit required?
Does the local taxes paid by the landlord represent a large number of rental months?
Are the buildings in good condition? Does the town hall invest in their upkeep?
