What's Considered a Good Investment?
*See the graph to the right for the inflation rate from 1990 till now.
**Breaking even in terms of monthly payment
*A general rule of thumb, if the property is newer, it'll have less issues. Nothing is perfect so you need to set aside a certain amount for expenses to fix issues that will arise. Don't expect not to do anything, you will get yourself into legal battles you DO NOT want to be involved in.

Do you ever see Real Estate professionals write "location, location, location" on their flyers? What the heck does that mean? Simply put, location is the main reason you should buy that particular property. Pay attention to a local Starbucks opening nearby, pay attention to local trends, pay attention to large voltage towers being built, just pay attention! The list is long and therefore I can't list everything here and some of it is just instinct.
*There is no guarantee for any type of investment and there is risk involved. Always consult your Financial Advisor, CPA and/or Attorney first.
