Secrets of Making Money from Real Estate - Part 1

There are three investment vehicles which can make you rich. Stocks, businesses, and real estate.

Stocks can return lots of money in a short amount of time, and can have a steady rate of return using investing techniques such as dollar cost averaging. However, but how much stock do you think you can buy for $20,000 dollars? $20,000 worth of stock. What about using someone else's money to buy more? Try asking your bank manager for a loan of $100,000 to buy stock! You wont be very successful. This is the principle of leverage. In stock there isn't much of that, you can't get rich using other peoples money. Also with such a volatile market trading can be nail biting!

Businesses for most people, can be very hard to start and run. I read somewhere that 9 out of 10 businesses fail with in the first year. Out of the successful businesses left, within the next 10 years 9 out of 10 of those businesses fail. Although running a successful business can be very profitable most people are held back by the financial and personal risk, along with long start up hours.

I am not saying that these two assets will not work to create money, they can, but for the average person it is quite hard to do so.

Throughout the centuries the rich have used real estate as a safe guard for their money and as an asset. So why is real estate such a great asset? Read more in Part 2!
