The King Of Investments is Still Real Estate

Sometimes I believe real estate agents are a lot like the proverbial cobbler whose kids have no shoes or the doctor who is a terrible alcoholic. We get so close to our business, so focused on our deals, that we fail to follow our own advise and especially so when it comes to real estate investing..

We all have been advised at one point in our lives to save for a rainy day, always save a portion of our earnings, and then  consider investing in things like real estate when those earnings have built enough value to do so.

The only problem is most of us wait too long to really fully appreciate how strong real estate investments really can be.  I have been involved in my share during my lifetime but am certain if I had to do it all over again I would have put more of my earnings and savings into real estate. And I would have begun doing so in my 20's! It just never fails to amaze me how in the long run nothing else can touch the potential of real estate.  So if your CD's , stocks, annuities and other investments are flat lining right now ....it may be time to go for the King.

Hi Trey!!!!   Like you, I wish I would have started investing in real estate back in my early 20's.  

Unfortuantely, I thought that it would be harder to purchase real estate than it actually is.

Good morning Trey Thurmond,  I agree with you that real estate is a great investment. I have had several REITs in my portfolio over the years.  I also owned one rental property that I recently sold. I need to decide if I am going to buy another rental property or not!
