Previous agents have provided you with great information. There are many factors that you should consider when you are thinking about investing in a property. Some of the basic factors would be considering what schools are in the area, how far the neighborhood is from shopping malls, major highways, and if there is going to be any new construction the area. There are other factors that a real estate agent can find out about the property that you are interested in to make sure you will invest in the right property that you will get the most return out of.

Hi. A few indicators would be school ratings, proximity to the airport and beaches. There are better areas in Tampa that provide a higher rate of return on your investment. I would be happy to discuss more in detail with you. Feel free to contact me at 813-810-7454. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

Trulia Tampa, Absolutely! The real estate market is dynamic, the trends are forever changing and economic factors are also rolling up, down and sideways.

This really separates homebuyers for personal use from investors. If you are seeking to purchase a home, then you are looking for a property that meets your needs, you would like to live in, and offers convenience to schools, community activities, shopping and access/commute to your work.

If you are an investor, then you would be seeking cash flow and be utilizing a different set of buying criteria.

There is so much information, that overload can be confusing. One specialty we have developed is to help our clients sort through what's important, what's not important, what's accurate, what's not accurate,We help you go from overwhelmed to relevant. We know local markets and trends, add your wants and needs to find your next home.

You bet. However, each investor will have different goals and holding mechanisms that cause significant variability. On the most basic level, the identification of POTENTIAL is the objective of Market In A Minute reports.
Data is of no value without sound judgement. This sound judgement, understanding the objectives, situation and vulnerabilities are all integral to making such decisions.
For instance, the opportunity to purchase a home at the lower 15% of a community's value is possible, but if you don't have the money to fix it up to be in the top 15%, the purchase will not secure the 40% profit that is potentially available.
The MIAM provides a snapshot and will indicate if more research is merited. There, however, is a lot more that must be knowb before investing one's dollars.
