Parents of Texas A&M Students and Individual Investors
As a real estate agent one of my greatest areas of expertise is in the area of investment property and student housing. From an experience standpoint, I have owned and managed my own rental portfolio right here in Aggieland for the past 17 years. During this time I have used my personal experiences to help a tremendous number of other investors and parents of students purchase their own investment property. I truly enjoy the process of finding and acquiring these types of properties and I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you. Whether you are the parent of a student or an individual investor, I believe the facts below demonstrate how profitable an investment property can be.

Buying vs Renting
Student housing is the single largest controllable college expense. Quality, near-campus rentals in Aggieland are costly - starting at $500/month per bedroom ($6,000 a year) or higher. In most cases, this represents 40% + of a student's annual educational budget! Some students even pay as much as $1000/month per bedroom for housing right next to campus making that percentage skyrocket.

Unlike renting, property ownership can provide significant cost reductions and tax advantages. As a parent, rental payments from your student's roommates reduce your expenses and allow your student to live at a lower cost, oftentimes for free! The tax advantages can be substantial and I can share with you how those have benefited me personally.

As the parent of an Aggie, I firmly believe that owning your student's home makes good financial sense. Take a moment to consider these numbers:

Sample Financial Analysis
(Based on a mortgage for a four bedroom home priced at $175,000 with a 5% down payment and 5% interest rate.)
Property Purchase Price $175,000
  Down Payment $8,750
  Mortgage Amount $166,250
Monthly Rental Income
  Rent per Bedroom $500
  Number of Bedrooms x4
  Total Montly Income $2,000
Less Estimated Expense
  Mortgage Payment $892
  Taxes and Insurance $300
  Total Montly Expenses ($1,192)
 ANNUAL CASH SAVINGS vs. RENTING $9,696 

As you can see, the potential financial benefits are pretty clear. There are also other benefits. Whether you are an Aggie parent or an investor you understand that a student's safety and academic setting are critical to their well-being and success. Both of these can be greatly enhanced by living in a privately owned house, townhome or condo where the surroundings are quiet and the parking is close.
