In my previous post, I noted the 10 states with the worst job markets in the U.S. Despite the increasing unemployment across the country, there are definitely some states where jobs are more plentiful.
According to CareerBuilder, these 15 states are:
Iowa and Vermont have the highest rates of unemployment among these states at 4 percent, according to CareerBuilder. That's a full 1 percent lower than the national unemployment rate of 5 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. South Dakota and Idaho, meanwhile, have unemployment rates of only 3 percent, according to CareerBuilder.
Real estate investors who get their foot in the door in these markets early may find themselves with plenty of options when people begin moving to these states, brimming with job opportunities, from states that are hemorrhaging jobs.
