Over the years of my career I have had clients discuss with me their desire to invest in real estate. In most cases rent houses and or duplexes. For those of you who do not know I have owned rental properties and have had my fair share of experiences both good and bad.
Home ownership in America has been one of the cornerstones of our economy. When we purchase a home, we spend more money on many products. We buy furniture, appliances, curtains, mini blinds and lawn mowers. We pay for utilities, insurance and property maintenance. We keep hardware stores and appliance repair shops in business.
