Real Estate Clubs Hot Among Investors

Six or seven years ago, the stock market was booming, Internet companies that no one had ever heard of were valued at billions of dollars, and anyone and everyone was investing their money in tech stocks.

Creating a Financial Future--Putting Your Plan Into Action Part 2

Real Estate can be a useful tool for investing. The simplest real estate investment is not truly an investment, but a cost-reduction ? that is owning your own home. Buying rather than renting allows one to put residential costs toward assets rather than into someone else?s pocket.
