If you’ve been paying attention here for a while, you realize that we’re talking tongue in cheek when we say to resist the conservative investment. The problem is that what conventional wisdom defines as conservative is very far from it. Our online realtor classes focus on the actual conservative investment, real estate, which is, strangely, also the most profitable from a historical standpoint. The “experts” like to claim stocks, bonds, money markets, cash, and gold to be the conservative approach, with real estate nothing but a dizzying ride to a crash landing.
The Wall Street marketing blitz has to say that because the assets they’re pushing simply don’t hold up and the reason is inflation. Simple, brutal inflation. Currency based assets are being devalued every minute you hold them. Plus you never know when the company you’re hot on decides to tank. And how can you be sure your broker’s not ripping you off? As we discuss in our AIPIS online realtor classes, even gold, long considered the standard for investing by a certain segment of the population, is inferior to real estate because you can’t leverage it, and leverage is the key to fending off inflation.
The actual conservative investment is income property, which exhibits all the benefits of real estate but has the added bonus of cash flow. A place to live is a universal demand that will never go away. A company can always put out more stock but there hasn’t been any additional land generated for several billion years. Real estate is resistant to inflation, offers incredible tax benefits, and is a finite commodity.
Don’t let anyone tell you the stock market is a conservative investment when the real one is sitting right under your feet. At AIPIS online realtor classes, we teach the most successful way to invest. If you prefer a lesser return on investment, call Wall Street. If not, call us at 714-820-4200.
