Well, your idea is a good one. I have been working with investor for the past 4 years purchasing property. Usually between 50k and 150k. Cap rates between 8-15% is the norm. I can send you a net sheet of several of my past sales. It shows the breakdown, purchase, tenant placement, management and the returns. I have found that there are a few good areas, especially a few good communities. I like winter garden, davenport/clermont, kissimmee(west of celebration), lake Nona, downtown Orlando. But it's really specific, some communities are great and appraisals increasing, others have good rate of return but appraisals are staying the same. Let me know if you want some additional information of what has worked for us and our clients. Email me and I will send you more info. Best of luck!

I've seen some great returns on investment in Deland. Stetson enrollment is growing. There are a couple properties I have been keeping an eye on for myself, but I am going to buy a new primary residence instead. Feel free to contact me if you are interested.

Anything within a comfortable commute of the new medical city at Lake Nona is where you want to be. You can read more about the opportunity on my website.

Did you know that you can check out my references and the references of the other agents that responsed right here on Trulia? Just click on our pictures. Read what my clients say about me and what the other agent’s clients say about them. Pick the person you’d be most comfortable to work with. Of course I hope it’s me, but if not then best of luck to you.

Your best bet for LONG-term rentals would be with the following areas: 1. Lake Nona (32827, 32832 zip codes) A-rated schools, the Medical City that s being built (attract a lot of medical workers and their families), golf courses and close proximity to the airport. Very desirable area. Try to concentrate on townhomes and single family homes (most popular); 2. Downtown Orlando. You'll have no problem finding a tenant; 3. D.Phillips. The price range is a little higher, but still, you won't have a problem finding a tenant.
If you'd like to know more about the areas (pricing and stats) shoot me a quick email, I'll be happy to help you.

Hi Shalala: Many of the areas suggested are good and I will add a couple more. The Dr. Phillips/Windermere areas are highly desirable especially for their schools. Purchasing in an A or B school district will get you a strong return based on families looking for homes in those areas. It would help if you could give us an idea of what price range you plan to purchase as that also has an affect on where you can purchase based on your budget. Please feel free to contact me for further info on these areas or any others you want to investigate.

MetroWest is a high demand apartment neighborhood about 10 minutes west of downtown. We have a lot of our investors purchase condos there, which we then manage for them until they are ready to sell. Then we help them sell... let me know if you'd like more info... also see our website below... thanks!
