My friend and I are considering dipping our toe into the real estate investment waters, starting with a one single family home to begin with. However, with the appreciation we've seen in the housing market over the past year or two I'm wondering what kind of CAP rates we can still hope to achieve. This would a be long-term plan for us and a simply breaking even on cash flow to begin with would be acceptable. Any thoughts or advice you can offer is greatly appreciated.

I am looking to dabble in the <a href="http://www.zillow.com">real estate</a> market. I want to purchase something that's selling at a fraction of it's current value. What should I look at in determining what it's worth versus what it's selling at? I currently live in Las Vegas and the <a href="http://www.zillow.com/reports/RealEstateMarketReports.htm">real estate market</a> is so down here and it's littered with <a href="http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/fore_lt/">foreclosures</a>. I really don't know where to start. My plan would be to live in it as a principal residence for my remaining time here in Vegas(will probably relocate within a year) and then hopefully have a renter to create some positive cash flow and build some equity to be able to purchase more dwellings in the future. Any and all advice would be beneficial. Thank you all.<br/><br/>Cory<br \><br \>18 replies Wed, 21 Dec 2011 18:58:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/First-time-homebuyer-investing/426404/ 2011-12-21T18:58:00Z
