A stable market. The nice thing about living in Colonia is that it affords you a secure style of living. First of all, the crime rates are very low.

One of real estate's well-kept secrets. If you are looking to rent a house or rent to own, don't presume the rents are high just because the house values are.

Many of the rent to own options are located near Bowtie Pool and Colonia Park.
