A new complex is being built. Depending on what you are looking for it could still be a great time to own a property. Many upper level and grad students tend to stay in houses off campus. If you choose a good location and property you should have no problem keeping it rented. I am a former Stout student and lived off campus. Most students are just looking for a good deal and location. If your still interested in getting a rental property I would be happy to help you find something at no cost to you.
Have a great day
A quick visit to the county planning office should allow you to see any projects being readied for ground breaking. Perhaps your county allows access through the internet.
