Nashville Ranked #2 of the Best College Towns for Investors

Housing markets with universities and colleges are often considered great buys for real estate investors, typically attracting a steady flow of renters.

“Housing demand in college towns is generally high and vacancy rates are usually low,” says Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Move Inc. “Combine the supply and demand ratio with rising admissions and the five percent rise in rental rates expected by the end of the year, and rental property in college towns can be a smart option for the right investor.”

The following is a list of seven strong college towns for real estate investments, according to Move.com.
