Should You Buy a Rental Home for Your College Student

Real Estate Agent with Joyce Marsh at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty BK659279 

Many parents of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University students here in Daytona Beach consider it a good idea to purchase a rental home or condo for their student to live in while he or she attends college.

There are many benefits to purchasing real estate, such as fixed housing expenses and potential appreciation.  Your student won't have to look for a new aparment or housing to live in every year. 

Of course, there are other factors to consider when making such a major decision, and there are additional costs to home ownership, insurance, and taxes over renting.  

Contact Joyce Marsh for information about purchasing in the greater Daytona Beach area.

Great question and I have seen clients buy homes for their kids who in turn make it into an income producing property i.e.: a three bedroom Condo becomes a mini dorm for six to eight students at a reduced rate compared to others...Endre

Good morning Joyce. We considered it when my son was at the University of Florida until he found an apartment complex with every amenity known to mankind. Enjoy your day!
