When you are investing in tangibles (as opposed to stocks and bonds), you are looking towards both reward and enjoyment. Real estate investing has been the most popular. Income producing properties such as multi-family units, retail and office buildings provide not only current income in the form of rental income but also tax savings and capital appreciation. Leverage plays a significant role in real estate investing, which magnifies risk and return. You should be careful about the pitfalls of high leveraged investing.
