Real Estate Tips:
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. 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. Wow! Great recommendations! As a lifelong resident of 42 years in West Virginia, I'd agree these are great must see places. Of course you can't touch on ALL the wonders of our state as there is so much to offer. We even have the greenbrier resort! Hehe. So glad you liked our state and hospitality!!! Oh, the "Red Robin is our state bird, The Cardinal, which the make is bright red and the female is a brownish, light red.
