If it were easy, everyone would do it. Some people might argue that investing in real estate comes with more responsibilities than throwing down money for stocks and bonds, but the truth is, whether you’re investing in real estate or the stock market, there will always be more to investing strategically than just putting down money, pulling up a lounge chair and sitting down to watch it grow.
Investing in the stock market, requires a lot of research on companies, market trends, and keeping on top of them (or your financial advisor) to ensure your money is safe and continues to grow.
Investing in real estate does require some hands-on responsibilities to maintain them, especially if you buy a house or an older property. And if you invest in pre-construction developments, you can put your money down, build equity over the 3- to 4-year build time, and eventually rent them out.
Regardless of your investment approach, you are going to have to put some work towards growing your wealth. After all, if getting rich were easy, everyone would be doing it.
