Are there any disadvantages?

Yes, this is investing.  Either in Stocks, Bonds, Baseball Cards, Real Estate or any investments, there can be a down side.  But so far we have found that Real estate can be the least volatile.  Some of the disadvantages could be maintenance repairs, you have your cash tied up, vacancies, and economics.  Please talk to one of our Century 21 American Properties, Inc. agents about any risks involved in any Real Estate investment.

What Do I Do Next

Why invest

Historically Real estate has shown a consistent increase in value.  Some of the investment gurus are now saying that Real Estate is a better place to put your money then  stocks. 

Two fold increase

You purchase a property and rent it.  The tenant pays you rent equal or greater then your mortgage on the property.  Each time you make a monthly payment, your equity in the property increases.  Each time your equity increases, your net worth increases.  Each turn of the calendar your property appreciates and also increases your net worth.   In addition to the increase in your net worth, there may be tax advantages available to lower your taxes.
