Real Estate Tips:
Determine your expected earnings and how you will receive them. Figure out what form your earnings will be in. There are many ways to get them back. These include rent, dividends, and interest. Some types like real estate and stocks can earn and grow in value. Figure out what the potential of your investment is over time. Make sure that any money you invest is done so with a specific goal in mind. If you just want to preserve capital and beat inflation a little, stick with money markets and bonds. If you are saving for retirement far in advance, look for growth stocks. If you want income streams, look for dividend stocks and real estate income trusts.

    1. Best airport in North America, Mall of America, Minnesota Nice, best park system in the US, short commutes, clean air, clean city, education rivals that of Boston, HIGH levels of diversity, sports teams are great, Twins games are the best stadium experience in North America… Minnesota is the place to be in! Everyone should move here.

    2. I miss Minnesota every day, it’s great to see how vibrant the state continues to be. I moved out recently and desperately want to move back.

    3. In addition to the sites that you’ve featured on this video I’d recommend the Weismann Art Museum at the University of Minnesota (architect: Frank Gehry) and the Guthrie Theater. Also, that much maligned industrial riverfront is why there’s a Minneapolis at all!
