Recs on banks/credit unions in the Tampa/Sarasota/Clearwater area

2 Replies

Hello fellow BP'ers

I have finally made the move to the Clearwater area and I'm looking to start building relationships and contacts with the local professionals!

Initially I would like to find a bank/credit union that lends to small time investors, but any other advice/recommendation is welcome. Ideally I would like to purchase my first property this year, but definitely will be within next 6 months. My thought is 3-15 units.  I would like to learn about the area first and get a general feeling of how things are down here before I take the plunge.

Thank you in advance!
