Now is the best time to invest in real estate, the best time to invest in anything is when there is when the market for it is down.

Other investments: Currencies, equities, futures, energy, solar, hydro, green industry in general, money market, CD, bonds, mutual funds, ETFs (mutual funds that trade like stock), Illiquid assets of private companies (such as on sharespost), start-up companies(venture cap/angel investor)...and tons and tons more.

1) owning real estate
2) owning a growing business
3) owning good stocks

The three and only three ways of making your money grow. #3 is actually a superset of #2, so you might say there are really only two ways. Smile

The two appreciating assets are real estate and equitiies - they are long term investments for long term growth. The average return is substantially higher than inflation, so that your wealth can compound and grow. The income products are designed for wealth preservation - CDs, bonds, savings, MMF, annuiities - your money does not grow, it approximately offsets inflation and the principal is protected.

An important question that you must answer for yourself is - do you want it to be safe?

Risk and return are directly proportional, no free lunch. When I want to add risk to my holdings I refinance my houses and invest the equity in stocks. That adds leverage to my real estate and increases my probable Return On Equity. Plus it frees up capital to invest in equities. So, to partially answer you, I purposely make my real estate holdings less safe as a method of increasing my ROE.

In making business in real estate you must know the trends in prices and you must really know when to sell and when not to, and you must know how to value your home.

Real estate is always a good option for better returns on your investment but it's a long term option.

In my opinion invest money in real estate is the great option. It can also rise in value overtime and prove a good investment in the cash value of the investment property that you buy. That's why you need to be sure that you are ready to begin investing in real estate.

As I also said in another thread, in my opinion, the best real estate investments right now are the ones you can either buy and sell (flip) in the shortest time possible (i.e. short sales and REO), without blocking any of your money, or long term in a partnership situation to diversify your risk (some residential mixed with commercial property.) In either case, keep your cash and spread your risk.

Yes, real estate is safe and also good investment and the investor can earn a substantial income in the near future as it invests in its good investment management. In addition to the investment income can provide, can also provide security to the owner's investment. Due to its characteristics, but material goods, such investment is safe in the hands of the owner. These are basic things you can do real estate as a good investment opportunity.
