Real Estate has always been a sound investment. Over the years it has always increased in value and has created more millionaires than the stock market. When investing in real estate, one can hold for future appreciation, lease for cash flow or save on income taxes. Real estate can be held in a trust, a limited liability company, a Corporation, partnership or individually.
Unlike stocks and bonds, Real estate can be leveraged. This increases the return for the investor. Real estate can be a hidden savings account wherein, you are paying down the mortgage each month and the property appreciates each month. If you don’t see the money each month, you tend not to spend the money. This builds up long-term wealth over a short period of time.
