In the last two centuries, approximately 90% of all millionaires and billionaires have been real estate investors — and, as billionaire industrialist Andrew Carnegie said, “the wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.”

For the average investor, though, that’s easier said than done. Purchasing real property can be tricky, whether you’re looking for a fix-and-flip, ongoing passive income, or a long-term buy-and-hold. Not every stock price goes up, and nor does the value of every home.

Here, you will find comprehensive real estate data analysis from the New York State Association of REALTORS®; the latest industry news for real estate investors; the top reasons you should use a REALTOR®; our MLS home-listing search tool; town-by-town descriptions of life in Ulster County; and the best ways to connect directly with the Ulster County Board of REALTORS®.

Remember: If you know the town in which you want to invest, it’s never been easier to find a real estate agent. Google the town name and “real estate agent,” and contact licensed REALTORS® with experience advising investors in the area.
