There is a humorist and writer, Mark Twain, who used the perfect words to describe real estate investment. He said, “Buy Land, they’re not making it anymore.” Yes, from Geography (or watching the Nat Geo documentaries), we know land can be created and/or destroyed.

However, land creation and/or destruction happens once in a blue moon; even then, it is quite rare. So much so, that Twain’s words remain true when you are talking about someone’s lifetime or several generations. But enough with the Geography lessons, let’s talk money.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd POTUS, once said: “Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.”
