''The rental conditions are very strong here in Tampa Bay. About 40% of our housing inventory is a short sale or foreclosure, which makes for the ideal rental market. Those that have chosen to let their homes go are stuck renting because in many cases they won’t be able to purchase another home for at least 3 years. Nationwide, the supply of rental housing has actually increased because of new construction and the conversion of previously owner-occupied homes. However, the demand for rentals is so great that the vacancy rate is at the lowest level in 30 years. The Market crash of 2007 created a perfect opportunity for Investors to come in and buy these homes in foreclosures and short sales to rehab and rent these homes, creating the Rental Market that we have today. As Tampa Bay Realty & Investment Group may be new, but the experience and background of our team is not. ''
