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.
