To help you decide where to invest your money, we narrowed down the most affordable college towns with schools that also offer low tuition and a high-quality education. Our methodology includes tuition cost and fees, the most recent U.S. News and World Report ranking, the median list price for homes near the school and Walk Score.
It’s always great to invest in a location where there is a large pool of tenants, which is exactly what you get when you invest in a property near Universities. The pool of potential tenants is also stable with new students coming in every year, so a property owner really doesn’t have to worry about where they will find the next tenant. I’ve had a lot of clients looking to invest in property near University, but the problem is that because it’s such a hot market, homes aren’t listed often. It’s not just a great location for students to rent, but also a great option if an investor ever decides to live in their investment home, given that the school is in the heart of a major metro area with everything to offer in terms of entertainment, culture, transportation, and food.
