There are no Gas Stations on our MLS and we do have one of the largest in the US. You are better off contacting the major distributors and seeing if they have any franchises available.

Even now in 2015, 75% of sales here are still bank owned. There is nothing wrong with speculating that prices will go up once the complex is sorted out, but do understand the risks.

I see you are an agent. Do be aware that the foreclosure sections of Trulia and Zillow have nothing to do with what is on the market, only actions in the courts.

Hi Carol,

Do read my blog on this topic.

It was read thousands of times here on Trulia, before they dropped their blog section.

Just checked what's on the market for you and frankly there is nothing in this price range that will yield much more than breakeven at best. You really need to think in terms of $150,000 to $160,000 as a minimum to find a short term rental property that will be profitable.

Trung Nguyen answered:

You are on the right track. It is a good idea to take your equity out of a home and reinvest in another property. The main issue for you to look for is the net investment returns. If you not sure, contact one of the Realtors specializing in Real Estate investment to lay out the plan. This is to make sure all the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly issues are covered.

Good luck.

I've worked extensively with several levels of investors from Blackstone/Invitation Homes and Waypoint/Starwood to international and small local investors. You need a broker who understands your property and community requirements and apply them quickly to the local market. Someone who understands your ROI expectations and can effectively communicate, negotiate and transact with you and for you and most importantly someone you can trust. I'm happy to assist, answer questions and provide references if you wish to communicate more? I've lived in Central Florida for 20 years and know the area and various markets very well.

Most of the investors I work with prefer the Townhomes and Single Family detached homes in the UCF vacinity. Are you looking to rent it out or flip ? Makes a difference.

Hello David,
I'd suggest a towhome near Millenia Mall or Metrowest which is a very popular area, easy to rent.
Fully townhomes in that area are going for $130k. I can send you some options. You can contact me via email or 407-800-8588. Thanks ... more
