Hello Wongivon;

There are quite a few areas tha I can recommend. The good investments that attract reliable renters might have fewer condos to choose from in this price range, but this simply means that I will have to look harder for you. It is also very important to keep an eye on the monthly HOA fees.

Call me any time if you have any questions at 407-929-9674.

Thank you.

The two areas that come to mind immediately relative to a more metropolitan life style are Miami and Tampa. However, one would think, that your decision should take into account the program of studies that you wish to persue. It's commonly understood that not all universities offer every program and that the quality of program can vary greatly from one college to another. This should be a priority....

You may be able to find off campus housing options, in which other students are looking for roommates to share expenses, through university services or local advertising methods.

Hope this is helpful,

Hope this message finds you well. It depends on the location in Lake Nona and the price point you are asking for the rental. The rental market is HOT right now, so rents are higher. What is your home purchasing budget?

Feel free to browse on my site.

Highest and best regards,

Vincent Paige

Hello Neil,
The areas all depends on what type of property you get. If you want to purchase a single family home, I suggest you look in the kissimmee, davenport, saint cloud, clermont area, There are people looking to rent long term in those areas plus you will be able to get a better deal on a house within your price range.

If you want to purchase a condo/townhouse you should look around the UCF area where you can rent them to students, and you might even be able to get a couple units with in your price range.

I have been able to help a few investors out, feel free to contact me with any questions.

Hi Annie

The only other fee you might have is an association fee. They vary for each subdivision and some do not have one at all. Please feel free to give me a call so that we can discuss what you are looking for.

If you're looking for "student" opinions you may want to go where "students" post. Most of the professionals on this site are either Realtors or Mortgage Brokers.

Good luck.

Mark LeMenager answered:
Hi Adar,

Without question, you want to be anywhere that is a comfortable commuting distance to the new medical city at Lake Nona on Orlando's southeast corner (near the airport). $100,000 will get you a good townhome in this area, that will rent well. If you want a single family house, there will be some opportunities as well, but not a lot.

Let me know if you could use some help.

Good luck,
Mark LeMenager

Karen Levy answered:
Hi Nery!

I have a friend who lives there and he likes it because a great deal of the construction and shopping is newer.

Also, you are near the expressway with good access to orlando while retaining a suburb feel.

You are not too far from a couple of nice lake and recreation areas too.

Wherever you end up I hope it's a place you can create some great memories.

Hi Ong,

Your property taxes will be about $17 per $1000 in Duval county. The cost to close should you finance here will be about 8-10% of the purchase price. Your agent can also negotiate these costs for you. Should you pay cash the cost will be much less. Please contact me so I can give you an estimate of the individual costs. I can be reached toll free at 877-331-3359 or email Look forward to assisting you.

Christopher Vaughan answered:

You have some great questions. I will attempt to address them all as thoroughly as possible. The first thing you need to consider is that in this lending environment you will need to put 20% down. With that kind of downpayment, it is possible to go cashflow positive now. Not to mention you will write off all of the mortgage interest and property taxes, which is really equivalent to cash flow. I believe the Windermere area is the best place in Central Florida to find such properties. Families swarm to the area because it's a beautiful place and the schools are great. Plus it's 10-15 minutes from Disney.

There are many homes on the market for less than 50% of what the previous buyer paid. The communities that have been hit the hardest were those built during the peak years (05-06). Since there are so many owners underwater, there's a huge supply of short sales and foreclosures suppressing prices. I recommend single family homes. The problem I have with townhomes and condos is that the HOA dues keep going up (to make up for all of the people who stopped paying when they foreclosed). You can find a lawn service for $80/month which is much less expensive than some of the fees I've seen recently.

I think anyone with a 10 year plan will definitely be happy they bought Florida real estate now. Rates are at an all time low. With a 10 year plan you don't have to worry about timing the bottom. As long as you are cash-flow positive you are making a wise investment. Please email me your criteria at and I will find you some properties that will rent easily and cash flow for you.
