CNN Money recently published an article highlighting just how undervalued real estate is in many areas of the US. While there are certainly deals to be found in almost every neighborhood across the country, those serious about real estate investing will find that these areas offer some of the best deals for the future. Each may have their own individual reasons for being undervalued right now, though you can be sure in the long run that they will definitely offer real estate investing professionals some handsome profits in the near future.
