Real Estate Tips:
Investing in real estate is one way to earn a return on your money as long as you choose your property wisely and purchase at a fair price. You can purchase a home and sell it when it increases in value. You can also purchase rental properties that provide you with an income, although you must deal with the headaches of being a landlord. Investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs) is another way to invest in real estate without having to actually own a physical property. One way to diversify your investment portfolio is through real estate. Although real estate might not have the glitz stock market investing, it is usually a solid core investment part of a portfolio. Often, real estate will hold its value when the market takes a downward turn, thereby; buffering any market loss.

    1. Picked only the Tourist Traps… sigh… Dad's Garage Improv Theater is hilarious. Little 5 points is interesting people and places and has the Vortex Bar and Grill WAY better food than the Varsity. Virginia Highlands has great shops, bars, and restaurants. And no mention of the night life in Buckhead. And don't forget Piedmont Park.
