Is Cincinnati considered an emerging market?

I have read a handful of articles that support the Cincinnati market as somewhat stable for multifamily investments. I also have read several that note the lenders are not favorable to any of the Ohio markets. Any feed back would be appreciated.

I'm no expert but I would have to say "no." Cincinnati has lost a lot of jobs in the manufacturing sector. Add to that the ever increasing crime rate and it might not be a good market in which to make risky investments. Over The Rhine was just named the most dangerous neighborhood in the entire US with 250 violent crimes per 1000 residents. However, properties (at least mine do) seem to be pretty stable at the moment. As with any city I think the key is to buy in the right areas.

I can think of better choices... but if it's close to you that is a different story.
