Blog #10: Mutual Funds: Eggs in Too Many Baskets?

Investing in a mutual fund might seem logical. It’s an opportunity to let a seasoned investor decide where your money goes, and typically, the investments made by a mutual fund are fairly diverse. That is to say, they fall into a variety of markets, and as such you can feel protected. If one market doesn’t pan out, perhaps one of the other ones will.

A lot of experts say that diversification in your investment portfolio is a good thing, and to a certain extent, they’re right. Investing in, say, only one stock, is a bit of a dangerous move, because what if that stock crashes? But diversification can also be very dangerous.

If you invest in a mutual fund that invests in a hundred different companies, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve reached optimal diversification. A lot of mutual funds invest specifically in a single industry, which means that you still face many of the same problems you would if you only invested in a single company. And what about mutual funds that invest in multiple industries?

At that point, you run into a problem of overdiversification, which is sometimes, adorably, called “diworsification”.

If your money is in a million different companies, keeping track of how all those companies are doing is a nightmare. Another problem is that investing in a lot of companies means having to own a lot of stocks in each of them, meaning that you have to put in quite a bit of cash up front. And perhaps one of the biggest issues with overdiversification is the fact that having your cash scattered in all directions means that even if one stock is performing well, you still might not make money after you account for how another market is doing.

Now let’s think about another investment: real estate. It might seem on the surface that real estate is an investment inherently lacking diversity, but the truth is, there are all kinds of real estate. You can invest in single family homes, multi-family dwellings, or office properties. You can invest in different parts of your city, or even in other cities. There are plenty of ways to have diverse real estate investments, and yet it would be really difficult to run into a problem of overdiversification, because it’s all real estate.

Real estate is a reliable, steady investment. Everyone needs it, and so it’s not going anywhere. This is just one of the many reasons real estate could be the right investment choice for you.

Blog #9: The High Cost of Mutual Funds

In any investment, there’s a certain level of money you have to put in before you see a return. That’s kind of the point of investing: you put something in to get something more out. It’s not free money, it’s putting your money in the right places to turn it into more money. Investing is great!

But some investments are smarter than others. Some investments, like mutual funds, can cost you quite a pretty penny right up front. Let’s look at some of the costs associated with mutual funds.

Annual Fund Operating Expenses

There are a lot of ongoing fees you’ve got to look out for if you invest in a mutual fund. There are management fees that go to the people who run and operate the fund, and 12b-1 fees, which go towards marketing and selling the fund, as well as other shareholder services. Then there can be a whole load of other administrative and managerial fees that you don’t really want to deal with.

Shareholder Fees

More expenses? That’s right, as a shareholder in a mutual fund you’re also responsible for things like sales loads, which are commissions you pay when you buy or sell shares, redemption fees, which you pay if the fund doesn’t feel you’ve held onto a share long enough, account fees if your investment falls below a certain waterline… the list goes on and on. There are so many little costs you have to account for when you invest in mutual funds just to have shares in them in the first place, let alone if you want to actually do anything with your shares.

How Can I Avoid This?

The best way to get around mutual fund fees is to simply invest in something else. Real estate, for example, doesn’t have all these hidden costs and fees. When you invest in a property, you pay in what you pay in, and if it’s a rental property you probably aren’t even paying the utilities for the building.

Real estate is a really smart investment for a lot of reasons, chief among them the fact that it’s straightforward. You invest in a property, you know what you’re paying and what you’re paying for. This is one of the reasons to consider real estate for your next investment.

Blog #8: Stocks Are a Gamble

Stocks are probably one of the first things you think of when you think of investing. The stock market is a big, well-known path of investing.

But just because something is popular doesn’t mean that it’s the best thing! Stocks, like any investment, come with a set of downsides that you’d be a fool to ignore. Today we’re going to talk about just how risky the stock market can be.

The stock market is controlled by supply and demand like any other market. That’s just the way it goes in the economy. But the stock market can move fast — too fast to keep up with. A stock can crash in a few months, if not weeks, if things go south for the market. And there are so many ways things can go wrong.

If people stop buying iphones, what do you think your Apple stock is going to be worth? It all comes down to how much the company itself is worth, and that depends on the economy at large. When things start dipping, as they have throughout the year 2020, then the stocks go down with them. You simply can’t rely on most stocks to not flake out on you.

And what about the long term? A company that made, say, the tapes for answering machines might have been doing great in the eighties, but how well do you think they’re doing now? Most companies don’t live to see their hundredth anniversary. The sad truth is that most things eventually become obsolete, and with technology advancing faster and faster by the day, that’s a bigger risk than ever.

So, why not invest in something steady? Something people are always going to need? There are a few things that are simply necessary for human life, and one of those is shelter. Real estate is never going to become obsolete. As long as there are people, those people are going to need a place to live, a roof over their heads. Furthermore, real estate is a relatively stable market — even when it goes down, it doesn’t do so as rapidly or dramatically as some other markets do.

If you’re thinking of expanding your portfolio, think about real estate before you start looking at the options in stocks. It’s an essential asset you can count on to provide a prosperous future for you and your family.

Blog #7: Real Estate vs. Bonds: Playing With Inflation

The risks and rewards of any investment depend on the nature of that investment. Each type of investment vehicle has different properties that lead to various risks—and rewards. Today, we’re going to look at the impact inflation has on bonds versus real estate: which investment benefits from the change in the value of a dollar, and which investment flops under this economic pressure?

Bonds

Bonds are a type of investment that involve the investor giving a loan to a borrower (usually a government or corporation). The investor then makes money off the bond through interest payments made on the loan’s principal, in addition to the payments received as the principal itself is paid off.

Bonds are typically considered a “low-risk” investment, but that does not mean that they are without risk. Why? Inflation. Even as the value of a currency decreases, the dollar amount that the bond is said to be worth remains the same. 

So, what does that mean? Basically, as inflation increases, the value of the bond decreases. If you put in a thousand dollars, you’ll be receiving that same thousand dollars back as the bond is paid off by the recipient, even though, as time goes on, the buying power of a thousand dollars decreases. 

The longer the term of the bond, the greater the negative impact inflation is likely to have on its value. Remember, inflation is, most of the time, increasing. You can’t count on a long-term bond to have your back.

Real Estate

Real estate investors, on the other hand, can find a lot of value in inflation. If a real estate investor plays their cards right, the property of inflation can inflate the value of your property. 

Think of it this way. When inflation rates are high, it becomes more difficult for the average Joe to get a mortgage. That means he’s not buying a house, but he still needs a roof over his head. What does he do? He rents!

This increase in the demand for rental properties means that real estate investors can actually have a really good time during periods of high inflation, even when that same inflation is putting a strain on other types of investments, like bonds. 

When you set out to invest, you have to consider the risks along with the rewards. Ballooning inflation can pop even a “low-risk” investment like a bond, but real estate can still remain afloat even in the most inflationary times. For this reason, and many others, real estate might be your best investment
option yet.

Blog #6: Paying Less Tax

When you make a profit, you want to hold on to as much of it as you can. You earned it, it’s yours, and you want it to stay yours! But that’s not how it goes. A certain amount of every dollar you make in your life goes towards taxes. It’s unavoidable. So, it’s a good idea to consider ways to make the most of your profits. You want to not only make as much as you can but also keep as much as you can. 

You may be asking yourself, what kind of investment could possibly change the reality of capital gains taxes? Aren’t all investments subject to the same rates, the same drawbacks? 

Here’s the thing: they’re not. While capital gains from stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are taxed at a pretty much universal rate, gains from real estate are taxed differently. If you buy a piece of property and sell it for a profit (because you bought it at a discount, or because it appreciated in value, or for some other reason), you will only be taxed on half of the money you made. This is because, in theory, the property should have lost value over the course of time. However, that’s often not the case. It’s entirely possible to resell real estate at a gain, as with any other investment. What makes real estate great is that you have to give up much less in taxes

Those tax savings mean more money in your pocket. There are so many things about real estate that make it a smart investment- the many profit centers it offers, the potential for excellent financing from banks, etc.- but one of the best parts is that you get the chance to actually keep more of your money. That, along with everything else, is great for investors. Real estate investments are an excellent way to build a prosperous future for yourself. Protect your interests by investing in property- you won’t regret it.

Blog #5 Gold vs Real Estate: Why Gold’s Depreciation and Poor Sustainability Outlooks Puts It At a Major Disadvantage

With rising inflation rates and unprecedented costs of living, choosing the right investment strategy is paramount. Thanks to its wide availability and flashy draw, many new investors look to gold as a viable investment option. Unfortunately, due to its impracticality, poor long-term returns, and declining demand from new generations, most seasoned investors advise to steer clear of gold. Here is what you need to know:

Gold Depreciation Over Time 

Turbulent economic conditions allow investors to reflect on their current investment portfolio. Out with the (g)old, and in with the new! 

Rare earth metals and crop production have shown their hand in the history of investment. While generations ago it was a coveted resource, over time, gold has lost its draw to newer investment options. Emerging generations simply do not value it as readily as do older generations.

In contrast, real estate is a tried and true method with diverse options for property investment. From residential rentals, to industrial real estate, and even vacant land, real estate is a trusted resource for current and emerging market trends. 

Investors also have to consider the instability and decrease in value of other precious metals and goods. A 2019 study of metal sector deals revealed that coal was actually the primary revenue contender of global mining, with gold coming in second to last. 

This decline in demand may partially be attributed to an eco-friendly global mentality. Mining has taken its toll on the environment as a whole, leaving a hole in the pockets of the future stability of an investment in rare earth metals. 

Erosion, deforestation, and excessive water use all make gold an unsustainable investment choice for the environment. This makes sense when you consider that many have rallied for the preservation of earth’s most precious resources: Earth itself. 

Looking to the Future 

With the onset of work-from-home measures and rampant pandemic precautions, space is a necessary resource for buyers. Moira Taylor, co-owner and CEO of Taylor Made Realty in Atlanta suggests, “Investors should consider the suburbs of major metropolitan areas, as they’re an ideal investment and have seen an increase in buyer demand in places like Atlanta, New Jersey, San Francisco and other major city suburbs.” Investors are taking advantage of these changing trends, and focusing instead on the buying potential of modern real estate. 

As buyer choices change, so too do investment decisions. Whether you’re looking to invest in vacation rentals or you’d like to construct from the ground up, there’s a real estate opportunity for you.

Blog #4: Gold Vs. Real Estate: Gold Is Not a Solid Investment

Gold has been around for centuries. From ancient royalty to present-day investing gurus, plenty of people choose gold as an investment. That many people can’t be wrong, can they?

Well, as it turns out, gold may not be such a golden choice after all. On the surface, it may seem harmless, lucrative even. However, when you look closely, you might start to notice that there are a lot of reasons that gold isn’t quite the excellent investment people have believed it to be for so long. 

Here is why:

A Market Steeped in Instability?

Let’s cut right to the chase. The gold market is simply not stable. That might seem strange, because most people associate gold with prestige and wealth. You figure that it is surely in high demand. Why would its price fluctuate wildly, if everyone wants it?

As it turns out, gold prices move with the economy, like any investment does.That said, gold also crashes harder than some other investments because it doesn’t really serve any purpose, at least not in the way it used to when currency was backed by it.

People like gold, but generally speaking, they don’t need it. It’s a market that people invest in when they’re afraid of paper currencies going under, but its value doesn’t come from it being useful or necessary for society. 

Why Real Estate Glimmers

With that in mind, maybe gold isn’t the right investment. Its instability makes it unreliable—you can’t count on gold to weather through a tough economy with you. So, what’s another investment to consider, if you can’t count on this classic?

Let’s take a look at another thing that people have trusted as an investment for centuries: land, property, and real estate. People have been profiting from owning property for as long as there have been people. Since folks actually need places to live and work, it’s a market that’s never going to go away as long as there are humans on the planet. 

Now, the real estate market does have ups and downs of its own, just like gold or any other investment. Overall, however, it’s a much more stable option. Why? Because the demand for safe housing and attractive corporate property remains constant for the most part.

Putting your money behind something necessary is a good safeguard against turbulence in the economy. You can’t always count on your coins, but real estate? Now that’s a smart investment.

Blog #3: Why Real Estate’s Equity Building Makes It a Better Long-Term Investment Than Bonds

When most people think of investing, the first things that come to mind are the intangible, particularly stocks and bonds. While many people may not understand its more complex innerworkings, most have some idea about what investing in stocks entails. But what about bonds, and are bonds sound investments, especially when compared to more tangible investments like real estate? In this article, we will consider these questions carefully.

What is a bond?

To put it simply, a bond is a type of loan whereby an investor gives money to a company, an individual or the government. In exchange, these parties promise to pay back the loan by a specific date, along with regular interest. 

On one hand, bonds are typically a lower-risk investment than other more common types, especially stocks. When you buy a bond, you understand the terms and conditions from the very start and so will not likely encounter any unpleasant surprises.

That said, because they are low-risk, bonds tend to be low-yield investments unless  specified otherwise. While there is usually clear risk involved, real estate often yields higher returns while also building equity. 

Real estate builds equity in many ways. This could be through debt decreasing or property value increasing. In contrast, the gains you reap from bonds will be predictable and consistent but generally unremarkable. Additionally, bond returns do not respond well to inflation

 Real estate, however, is by nature dynamic. It responds to the market, which means when prices go up, so does the value of your units. When you own several apartment buildings and demand for housing in your city is on the rise, you can expect to earn more from each of your units. 

In sum, the higher yield, increased stability, and long-term benefits of investing in real estate prove better and more worth your investment than bonds. 

How do I invest in real estate?

There are many ways to invest in real estate. While there are intangible options like real estate investment trusts, many find it rewarding to actually manage the properties for themselves by renting them out, overseeing their maintenance, and so on.

Investing in real estate can be done through investment in rental properties or flipping property you’ve invested in. Perhaps the best way to start into real estate investment is by renting out part of a home, even if it’s just part time through a platform like Airbnb.

Blog #2: Real Estate vs. Money in the Bank

Investing in Real Estate vs. Banking Your Money: Why Real Estate Keeps Your Money Working For You

Here’s a question you might have been asking yourself: Is it better to invest your money, or hold onto it by keeping it in the bank?

There are so many old adages about money and investing, and perhaps the most important and relevant one? “Make your money work for you!” Another common phrase is “You have to spend money to make money!”, and that’s what’s at the center of the answer to this question. These sayings may be well-worn at this point, but they hold some truth.

When you leave your money in the bank, it does very little besides just sitting there. Sure, having a big number on your account balance looks nice, and it is useful to have some liquid assets you can tap into, but if you’re looking to really pump up your net worth, you’re going to need to put your money into something. You’re going to need to invest.

There are a lot of options for you when you set out to start investing, and real estate is one possible investment. It’s a popular choice, and for good reason.

Why Real Estate Does the Job

Real estate is an evergreen investment, because it has tangible, actual, inherent, and real value. People are always going to need places to live, and so, as long as there are people, there’s a demand for real estate.

When you leave your money to languish in the bank, you’re trading the chance to have a tangible asset to your name for a bigger number on your account statements. That number is nice to look at, but you know what’s even nicer? Being able to drive past an apartment building, knowing that it’s yours, that it’s making you money, and that you made the right choice.

When you’re deciding what to do with your money, it’s worth remembering that doing something with it—anything, really—is how you make a profit. Money sitting in the bank isn’t doing you any good. But investing in real estate, thus using your money to make more money? Utilizing your intangible monetary resources in order to put your name on something real and eternally valuable? Now that’s smart.

Blog #1: Cryptocurrencies vs. Real Estate: Why Cryptocurrency Comes Up Short


Looking for a way to make extra money over time? If you have the means to do so, investing is always a good idea– as long as you’re making
smart investments. Making risky investments in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin can certainly be thrilling, and it’s definitely become somewhat of a fad in recent years; it seems like everyone and their mother has money in some sort of cryptocurrency at the moment. But you should think twice before putting a significant amount of your savings into cryptos, no matter how good of an idea it seems in the moment. That’s because it doesn’t have any tangible backing, among other reasons.

If you’re looking to make a more promising investment, real estate investments could be one great and much safer, more tangible option. If you’re not quite convinced yet, just put down the DogeCoin for a second and let us explain why cryptocurrency comes up short when compared to real estate. 

Cryptocurrency and its risks

Your first question might actually be what, exactly, cryptocurrency is and how the infamous process of investing in it works. Essentially, a cryptocurrency is an electronic currency that does not physically exist, but still holds worth. The value of cryptocurrency goes up and down based on how many people are purchasing it– it’s all about supply and demand. So, if you buy cryptocurrency at a low price, you may be able to sell it for more money once it becomes more valuable. The key word here is may.

One of the risks of cryptocurrency is that it’s extremely volatile. What seems like a good investment one day could be thousands of dollars wasted the next. And while most investments come with the risk of losing your money, cryptocurrency poses another unique risk due to its intangibility. Cryptocurrency isn’t backed up by any physical assets– it’s all electronic. That means it’s susceptible to glitches, errors, and hacking. 

Real estate investment and its benefits

Meanwhile, real estate is one highly tangible asset that offers a much safer investment– it definitely has a physical form to back it up! It’s a whole house! While the fact that property can’t be hacked like cryptocurrency can is a huge plus, real estate investments also offer tons of other benefits: great, steady cash flow, tax breaks and deductions, and steady appreciation in value. It also comes with competitive risk-adjustment returns: over the past 50 years, the average annual return has been about 11%. 

While real estate is a long-term investment, the overall return will be worth the wait. Overall, it offers long-term financial security and a nearly guaranteed great return. This, along with its tangibility, makes it a more secure option by a landslide when compared to cryptocurrencies.

So before you jump on the next big cryptocurrency bandwagon, really think about the risk you’re taking and ask yourself if that money could be better spent on real estate. Sometimes it’s best to play the long game. Happy investing!
