Hi Louise,

The Lexington? The S Loop is a big area with a lot of new construction projects completed and more to come. Many owners that can't sell are looking to rent their units so you'll have a fair bit of competition.

Call me to discuss in more detail.

Expect taxes to be somewhere between 1.5%-2% of your purchase price. As far as rental, it will be hard to outpace what's typical in the area which is roughly a range of $1600-$2400 per month.

Good luck with renting your place.
