The title says it all; that this WSJ story focuses on Charlottesville is almost beside the point. But … with the University of Virginia growing, some “student” housing might prove to be a good investment. My favorite part of the story:
Shortly after I did the math, I contacted a real-estate agent in Charlottesville, Va., who was well acquainted with spreadsheet-toting parents like me. And he did something quite out of character for a broker — he talked me out of buying.
Honesty will go a long way.
