My mission is dedicated to helping my clients realize financial independence and achieve retirement security through conservative real estate investment. There are two types of property you can buy, Unimproved and Improved Residential Income property. I do not generally recommend investment in unimproved property to beginning investors. Investing in raw land is too speculative No doubt many have made money in this area. Often, however they invest their capital with a degree of risk.

The single most important consideration in selecting investment property, and probably overlooked, is a total investment plan. Any plan, however meager, is better than no plan at all. Nevertheless, I have found that the more detailed the plan, the better. Any good investment realtor should be equipped to develop a customized, detailed plan for you.
