Real Estate Investing

Profitable Real Estate Investments

Except for some special circumstances, real estate historically has gone up in value over time.  Sometimes very quickly, sometimes slow but steady, and at times like a roller-coaster ride.  A look at the past 100 years shows that if you held onto real estate for at least 10 years, you probably made a good investment that yielded you a reasonable return.  That's certainly not the whole picture. There are many factors that impact return on investment, and learning as much as you can about real estate investing and the different options before investing is highly recommended.
Although there are many ways to approach investing in real estate, here are a few examples of real estate investments that can yield profits over a short term and/or long term holding period.
