Hello Rebecca,

As a FIU Alumni I would consider a couple of factors. It depends on what you are looking for: Are you looking for ROI? Do you want to be able to rent it out quicker? What tends to be popular with students is a 2 or 3 bedroom apartment that they can share the cost.

Make sure you hire the right real estate agent that is knowledgable in brokering bank owned properties.

As a former banker, I have a lot of experience in brokering bank owned properties.

If you need any assistance, please feel free to contact me.

Good afternoon, There are some great properties that are located near the South Campus of FIU as well as the North Campus. Typically around these areas you can find a great twonhome or condo to invest in with at least two bedrooms. I can find some great properties for you and get you a great ROI for your money. Feel free to contact me at the info below so we can discuss.

Thank you,

I am looking for properties all around Miami were I can get a good ROI. My intentions are to keep them for 3 to 5 years and then sell them. If you could send me a MLS for properties that you would recommend up to the price of $200,000 I would appreciate it.
Thank You.

While REO investory is very very very low, there may be something for you. And basically at todays prices, the numbers work well with most any real estate purchase in the Miami market. Several questions come to mind as a 32-yr Broker/Agent in this town, so: 1) What return (or Cap Rate) are you expecting? 2) Do you prefer 1 or 2 or 3 bedrooms? 3) Are you investing cash or with financing? 4) How soon are you ready, willing & able to make this investment purchase? Some thoughts ... the returns on 1 bdrms are generlly better than 2s or 3s because the numbers just make more sense. However, re-selling a 1 Bdrm vs a 2 or 3 in the future may be more challenging, although very possible. Room-Mate scenarios as a Landlord/Investor are never the best although at the onset & on the face of it may appear more "lucrative". SIngle Family detached Homes or Fee Simple, Lot & Block Townhomes generally make for better, residential real estate investments in the long run. Have you ever been a Landlord or done this type of investing before? For your personal, private, no-obligation consultation on this matter please feel free to call or write, SteveCEpstein@gmail.com Cell/Text 305-546-5132. Thanks and best wishes, Steve E
