Home Sweet Second Home - Investment Homes for Sale in Columbia SC

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

If you aren't considering purchasing a second home as part of your investment strategy, you should be.  There has never been a better time for small investors to get started, and rental income presents a very attractive alternative to relatively low rates of return on ho-hum traditional retail bank products.

The National Association of Realtors recently reported that sales of investment properties were up an incredible 64.5% in 2011, with an affordable median price of $100,000, and median down payment of just 27%.  Sales of vacation homes were also up.  The increase was attributed to bargain home prices coupled with historically low mortgage rates, as well as an increase in the number of small investors.  Read more here.

The rental market in Columbia is strong, supported by Army base Fort Jackson, the state government nucleus, and a broad network of academic institutions, including technical schools, 2-year and 4-year institutions, as well as graduate programs, anchored by the University of South Carolina.  Whether you're interested in a second home for rental income, fun, or a little bit of both, we can help you find the property that's right for you.
