ICYMI: Tampa Bay Times: Tampa is the second best city in the nation to invest in real estate, study finds
ICYMI – Recent ratings from GoBankingRates.com found Tampa is the 2nd best city in the U.S. to invest in real estate.
It has a hot, muggy climate, dangerous mosquitoes and a never-ending string of bizarre-o happenings.
Still, Florida remains one of the nation's best places to invest in real estate, and Tampa is one of the best cities to invest in.
That's according to GoBankingRates, which ranks Tampa second among the top 15 U.S. cities in which to own investment property. Orlando is first, Miami 10th and Jacksonville 13th, making Florida the only state with four cities on the list.
"Growing populations in the top cities on our list are fueling the need for more housing,'' said Cameron Huddleston, life and money columnist for GoBankingRates, an online site that compares lenders' interest rates. "That's why these cities are such great places to own investment property now.''
