River Chase has been very tough on resale over the past couple of years. I can provide detailed stats if you'd like. Because there are many homes for sale, plus they are still building in that subdivision, we are seeing very long days on market and somewhat stagnant sales prices. I believe that if you are looking for strong resale value, you would need to hang on to it a bit longer than 2 years.
The ease of leasing it greatly depends on 2 things: 1) how much you want to get for it and 2) what length of lease are you considering? Short term leases tend to appeal to the luxury home renters, as many of them are relocating and scoping out the area before the buy, or are building a home and just waiting for it to be completed.
If you would like stats on the resale value, just let me know. Aja.Edwards@ERA.com or 512-426-4231.

If this is your first real estate investment for lease then that lease amount is extremely high per month for a $390K home I would put all the figures down for lease prior to purchasing the property.
I am a Texas real estate agent, Texas investor, loan officer before I purchase any property I know all the facts, each second the house sits on the market vacant I lose money, till I have a tenant. Most of my properties stay on the market for approx. 24 hours.
