Real Estate as an Investment

Making the choice to invest in residential real estate is an excellent way to diversify and grow your net worth, if it is done correctly. Besides providing a steady cash flow and amazing tax benefits, investing in real estate also provides a sense of security that is simply unmatched in other investments. Real estate is ever-accessible, appreciable, depreciable, leverageable, improvable, deductible, deferrable and stable; however, for you as an investor, the most important thing real estate can be is rentable.

Opportunities in the Charlottesville Area: Student Rentals

When it comes to the rental market in Charlottesville, options are bountiful. This town is largely based around the University of Virginia, and as such, there is a high need for residential rentals to accommodate students. There are just under 24,000 students enrolled at UVA, and of this number, approximately 41 percent live on the campus. While there are some students that live at home in the area, this leaves a significant portion of the student body that is in need of off-campus rental housing. This factor alone presents a huge opportunity for the area’s real estate investors. Further, the stability of the university means that there will always be a steady flow of students – and even faculty members – looking for affordable rental housing in the University region.

Investors looking at neighborhoods around the UVA campus have numerous property options, including single-family homes, townhouses and even apartment complexes.

Livability and A Strong Economy

Students are just one sector of the rental market in the greater Charlottesville area. This region is known for its livability, and, in fact, has received numerous accolades, including the “Most Exciting Place in Virginia” by Movoto Real Estate, the “Best College Town in America” by Traveler’s Today, one of the “Top 100 Places to Live” by Livability.com, one of “America’s Favorite Mountain Towns” by Travel + Leisure Magazine, and the list goes on. The draw of Charlottesville is undeniable, and this brings in a steady flow of new residents on a regular basis. Budding professionals and families are drawn to the stable work environment and ever-changing environment Charlottesville presents, while retirees are drawn to the scenic beauty and easy lifestyle offered by Charlottesville and Albemarle County. The great variety of residents, and the options they seek, means excellent things for the rental market in the greater Charlottesville area.

Investing Outside of the City

The investment properties do not end at the city lines, and renters are bountiful throughout the 29 North region, as well. In 29 North, the beauty of the country combines with fantastic access to surrounding communities and a number of the county’s most prominent employers. Big-name retailers and local shops provide employment options in the retail sectors; however, the major draws for the area include General Electric, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Ground Intelligence Center. There is also an airport in town that provides opportunity for residents.

Where there is employment there are incoming residents, and this gives you as a real estate investor a great chance to build your portfolio in a different, less-dense region of Albemarle County. Town’s Realty expertise in Charlottesville’s specific market trends is just one of the ways that our Realtors help you in the investment property acquisition process. Overall, it is our commitment to excellence – both ours and yours – that allows success in each and every transaction.
