Which is the better investment; stocks or real estate?
Due to the unique nature of real estate, an apples-to-apples comparison is tough to make. But speaking from 40+ years of personal experience, I'd say both are important components of a well-balanced investment mix. I've made great long-term money with both.
Major difference: Stocks are easy to buy, sell and track. Real estate, on the other hand, has traditionally been anything but.
When you hear someone talking about investing in real estate, you probably imagine a hapless landlord, cleaning, painting, mowing and praying that their tenant can come up with the rent next month.
While that's not inaccurate -- I lived that version of the real estate investor in my younger days -- these days there are ways to invest in land and buildings that don't involve schlepping lawn mowers and paint cans. There are now real estate opportunities that don't require a boatload of cash, sweat equity or even much supervision.
That's what this week's "Money!" podcast is about. We're going to talk about all the different ways to invest in real estate, both traditional and cutting edge.
