Leaders of the Pittsburgh Real Estate Investors Association presented the benefits of South West Pennsylvania to a large gathering of private equity fund managers and private lenders. Unlike other parts of the country where boom and bust cycles are the norm, Pittsburgh is a market of steady growth. This fact attracts out of town investors to the region. Pittsburgh has never been a flashy market, but it is a market with great cash flow. Cash flow is how real long-term wealth is created. Cash flow investors place their money with private equity funds in order to get a high rate of return on money that would otherwise sit idle or have to be placed into a higher risk investment category to attain the type of returns that real estate investing can generate. Many of these investors are using IRA funds to invest in real estate. The private equity fund managers provide a level of expertise in evaluating individual deals for their clients. That is how fund managers raise money for their funds.

There is a reason that Forbes Magazine declared Pittsburgh to be the #1 real estate market in America. The Pittsburgh real estate market is unique. The housing rental market in Pittsburgh is extremely strong. This factor combined with the relatively cost of real estate acquisition creates a perfect storm for cash flow investors. The Pittsburgh REIA leadership presented these facts to convention attendees, along with a host of other market tends. Many of the private lenders were interested in buying property in Western Pennsylvania. One problem had to be overcome first. In order to effectively place investor money in any local real estate market, a fund needs boots on the ground intelligence.
