Sacramento, Las Vegas, Dallas, Atlanta and Phoenix are the top five markets in the United States that will be great places for multifamily investments, according to research from Ten-X.

Meanwhile, San Francisco, New York City, San Jose, Miami, FL and Milwaukee are areas in which investors might want to sell their multifamily assets. As new supply keeps flooding into these metros, flattening rents and increasing vacancies are the norm, Ten-X said.
