property: Keys to success in real estate investing - 10/12/13 09:24 AM
What is the key to successfully investing in real estate?
Actually there are several things to consider.
First: You have to have a plan. That would consist of asking questions to determine exactly what you want out of your investments. Are you looking for a tax shelter? Are you trying to build wealth through a long range portfolio? Do you want to flip properties? Each is a different path and calls for a different strategy.
