So, where will Amazon put their second headquarters? If you actually knew the answer to that question you could make a killing in the real estate market, however that hasn’t stopped many from speculating. A recent story in the Wall Street Journal (reposted on Realtor.com) says that there are plenty of real-estate investors poised to buy property in whichever city Amazon chooses and many aren’t waiting for it to be announced. Indeed…if you own property in one of their 20 finalist cities, and your city gets chosen, you might just hit the jackpot.
“Pittsburgh’s selection as a finalist helped boost a market that already had drawn investor interest, said David Cunningham, a retired firefighter and owner of rental properties in the Hazelwood neighborhood, which is near a former steel-production site considered a possible Amazon location.”
