Real Estate Tips:
Diversify your portfolio as much as possible. You do not want to have all of your investment funds in only one type of investment. Spread them out over stocks, real estate, and other investments in order to protect yourself should something bad happen in one area of the investment market. Keep in mind that there are investment opportunities past just traditional stocks and bonds. Commodities are an asset class with both risks and rewards but can provide hedges against inflation. Also look at real estate income trusts to invest into the real estate market without being tied to individual pieces of property.

    1. Enjoyed your video! We have family in Virginia and we have not stopped in Roanoke, but it is on our way and now I want to stop. Thanks for the great ideas!

    2. My mom was actually born in Roanoke and I've actually never been! Want to visit though. Adding all these to my list. The Hotel Roanoke looks amazing. Maybe we'll splurge for a stay, because I can just picture a nightcap at the bar.
