The leaders of the market in tech stocks are Microsoft, Apple, and Facebook. The leaders are exactly that. In the past decades, the leaders have changed and kept changing every decade.
In the instance of tech stocks, if you’d made a $10,000 investment in each of those companies 10 years ago, today you would probably need a software program to count all your money.
So, stocks have a tremendous upside.
There are a lot of somebodies who probably bought one of those high-flying tech stocks who are now multimillionaires. Realistically, that’s only a few people.
IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – MAKING MONEY NOW
Most people don’t fit into that category and they missed the boom. They missed the topsy-turvy ups and downs of the market. What they’re looking for is how to make money today and maybe into the future.
The experts, the stock market guru’s, financial planners, investment advisors, many attorneys, CPAs and promoters repeat the same advice. That advice is that stocks will generate 7-10% return over a period of years.
That sure sounds good. However, I’m in the real world of producing money now, not in 10 years.

IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – A HIDDEN MARKET
Does real estate beat the stock market? On the very simple side of life, 30 years ago, I discovered an almost hidden market that is a subset of the old fashioned residential real estate market.
Further research revealed that it was a 200-year-old system that the government mandated, managed and controlled.
What’s the big deal? By observing carefully, I could determine the potential profit before I invested. Wow! That’s interesting.
Yes, I could see, and you could see, there was a good chance before investing anything, I could determine the exit strategy and possible profit before I invested my money.
IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – ABOUT STOCKS
There’s nothing wrong with stocks, and those who are educated and have the ability to research will be way ahead of the pack.
Stocks require you to investigate the product. You find out about management, and you understand the market.
Are you investing for dividends, or is your objective growth? Can you handle risk?
If the CFO or the CEO is caught in a scandal, or he or she gets sideways with the politicians and they start badmouthing, what will that do to the stock?
What if the President mismanages and inflates the money to give it to poor people at the expense of hard-working people.
IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – GROWING WEALTH
Getting wealthy is a choice, and with that choice you make other choices.
For example, are you using your own money to grow, or do you prefer to use someone else’s money? Must you control your money, or will you allow managers to control your money?
Certainly Apple, Microsoft, and Disney are glamorous stocks to own.
It was just a few years ago, General Motors was glamorous as was General Electric. Where are they today? Certainly not in the glamorous category.
IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – REAL ESTATE
Today I’m discussing, is investing in real estate better than stocks? Frankly, I think they are both good. Is real estate a good investment?
I chose real estate because I grew up financially and economically in California, and the state was booming with thousands of newcomers moving into the state. To meet the demand for housing, developers were building homes for the newcomers.
The real estate market was booming with gross rates of over 20% annually. Prices were on their way into the rarified air of space.
Overbuilding and overfinancing caused a painful failure and recession. The markets deflated 20%, 30%, up to 50% in 6 months. Just like the stock market, investors lost their assets, and foreclosure real estate was everywhere.
The fast profit money people were wiped out. Along with many entrepreneurs, the bargain hunters rejoiced.
IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – TAX LIENS AND TAX DEEDS
Is investing in real estate really worth it? Personally, I prefer real estate because I don’t need to hire and investigate management teams, and if I don’t have knowledge of the company’s product, I look the other way. I don’t have to hire an expert.
30 years of watching tax deed and tax lien government-mandated and administered tax auctions, revealed starting bids on used and abused real estate of 5 cents, 10 cents, and 20 cents on the dollar at tax auctions.
In many instances, margins of 50% – 70% below market were revealed. This allowed the seller a competitive advantage. Selling prices could be significantly below market.

IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – PROFIT MARGIN
If you can purchase in a market at 60%, 70% or 80% below the competition, you have an advantage.
That one fact allows anyone to compare the investment with other real estate, like single family homes, apartments, or office buildings, where buyers are required to pay retail, then develop value and wait for rental price acceleration.
Serious investing requires you to evaluate and estimate selling prices and then make a decision to buy based on the upside potential.
Purchasing at auctions allows an advantage of low price and no mortgage loans.
IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – REAL ESTATE VS STOCKS
Comparing stocks vs real estate, to hands-on investors, everything is accessible. Hands-off investment is completely different. Management teams and the executive board room are not accessible.
The hands-off stock investment depends on the management team to run the company and the executive boardroom to control the upside and make money, or at least, show a rise in stock price. These teams are affected by the news media and social media.
Is investing in real estate better than stocks? My answer is they are both good and they’re both bad.
IS INVESTING IN REAL ESTATE BETTER THAN STOCKS? – RISK
General Motors was started in the early 1900s. The first successful General Motors car was a Buick.
The company was founded by a buggy manufacturer. In the next 100 years, GM bought and created many exciting, profitable automobiles, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Cadillac and many others.
Good news and a strong economy helped them to produce millions of products, and the stockholders and the management team participated in the profits.
Unfortunately, they all got old and fat, and the market share disappeared along with the profits.
General Electric started out manufacturing light bulbs, and they grew into an everything company from financial services to jet engines.
Today, most of the divisions of General Electric have failed, or they have been sold off except for the jet engines.
A few stockbrokers were hands-on or they were traders, and they made their money on the up and down market.
The market is volatile, and it’s risky. On the upside, stocks can exceed real estate overnight . The choice is yours.

Both the real estate and stock markets can be profitable if you know what you’re doing.
