Here’s an example of a good investment. Upscale duplex located within 10 minutes of Blinn and TAMU with 3 bed and 3 bath on each side. Your student lives in one bedroom and leases out the rest to roommates to make the mortgage payment. With 25% down on a 30 yr mortgage ($69,975), your mortgage would be $209,925 and your payment would be approximately $1,053.53. Rents in the B/CS area right now are between $400 and $600/month. So, worse case scenario at $400/month/bedroom, if your child were living in one of the rooms, your cash flow would be approximately $546.47 and your child would have free housing and you would be making money instead of losing it. :-). Sell when your child graduates and you make money again. Worse case scenario you break even, and you win again. Your child gets FREE HOUSING! Call me.
I’m always here if you need me.
