Items to Think About When Purchasing a Condo

How will you be purchasing your condo? If you’re purchasing this as an investment or a second home, financing for a condo can be difficult, if not impossible to obtain, due to lender restrictions. If you require financing, a townhome or single family residence may be a better option for you. Contact Nick for more details.

Great Investment Opportunity

Whether this is your first investment property, or you’re a seasoned real estate investor, purchasing a condo for your University of Arizona student can be a smart move.

Oftentimes parents purchase a condo for their student with the intention for the younger siblings to move there once they reach college age. Other times the student will have rent-paying friends as roommates.

Some parents keep the investment property after their son or daughter graduates and others prefer to sell at that time.
