OVERVIEW

Real Estate as an investment has a couple of major advantages over other forms of wealth building. First,of course is depreciation tax shelter, but the really comforting thing is its ability to smooth over small errors in judgement over time.

Investment in the stock market can be very rewarding and very demanding of your time energy and capital. Markket fluctuations, miscalculations of timing, world events, can all affect your investment sometime catastrophically.
