HomeUnion has added Tampa, Florida, to its list of active investment markets. “The Tampa area enjoys a diverse economic base that continues to grow, adding new jobs and attracting new companies to the area,” said Don Ganguly, CEO of HomeUnion, in a statement. “The solid economic base combined with the strong demand for rental properties means that investors can enjoy sustainable, relatively high yields through their investment, which is particularly attractive when compared to the low yields available in other cash-producing investments like CDs and bonds.”
