We can appreciate the financial commitment parents make for their children's college education and housing. We work with parents and students to offset the financial cost of their son or daughter’s college education by turning their student housing expense into an investment. The South Tampa real estate market which surrounds the University of Tampa has proven to have one of the highest return on investment due to the ideal outdoor lifestyle, dining, shopping, architectural appeal, waterfront and tropical landscape backdrops, and historical charm.  While we can’t control the cost of education, we can counsel and partner with you to effectively turn your student housing expense into an appreciable asset with possible cash flow while enjoying a tax advantage (please check with a tax consultant).  We are a full service real estate company to include property management if you choose to lease your property investment after graduation.  Please ask us how to best leverage your investment with our mortgage partner's leveraged financial product suite.  According to a March 2014 article, Tampa was just referenced as the 2nd best city to purchase real estate.  We look forward to understanding your housing/financial objectives so we can help you invest wisely.  As your Personal Real Estate Consultant, we will represent your best interest and create a seamless smooth real estate purchasing experience.  Let us do the legwork while you enjoy shopping for your son and/or daughter's home away from home.  For a complimentary consultation please call us at 813-453-2932.

American Mortgage - Build Equity While Paying Tuition
My team and I specialize in catering financing needs to fit your daily lifestyle, whether it be a primary, secondary, or investment property. Along with Financing, we have a dedicated member of our real-estate team who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in the Tampa Bay area. I am a graduate from the University of Tampa, so there is a lot of information I bring to the table as far as the benefits to living off campus and ways in which you can build equity in a property while sending your children to the University. The University of Tampa is a great University for its academics, but more so the beautiful city in which it is located in. I spent thousands of dollars on rent when I could have been growing my real-estate portfolio. Owning a property and having you’re son or daughters roommates pay towards the mortgage helps you build equity and have something of value, opposed to an apartment, which you move out of and get a security deposit back. Let us help you make another great investment besides your children’s education. You can contact us at 908-334-5216 for a free consultation, and a snap shot of what your future might look like when your investment matures!
