Hi,

Both investment options are good but you have to decide where you want go.

If you want to invest for a long term, real estate is the best option and if you are looking for a short term investment, stocks may be good option.However investment in stocks are more risky than any other option. So I would suggest taking advice from experts before investment in any option.

Best of Luck!

I have heard that Treasury Bills are a better way to put your money away rather than stocks. What exactly are they and are they worth it?

Treasury bills finance the short term immediate requirements of the Federal Government. They generally have a maturity period of less than one year starting from a month to about six months. They are the least risky investment options available in the market and do not give any interest before the maturity period.

I think it is depending on the financial condition of indivdual and the person who wants to take risk at what level which determines which in better to invest.

As per my view real estate is good option as along term benefit.

As long as you are buying properties that are not gonna cost you an arm and a leg to fix, some of them have been completely stripped when they have been forclosed on. Owner rage I guess. Just make sure that you check it out before you invest in it.

Yes Goodnatured, as per my view the buying a property in recession period is a good deal. Also i will suggest to invest the money in buying the property rather than investing in stock market.
You should treat the property as long term benefit.

Thus the present situation will defenately in favor of buying land.

I would say real estate because with so many people losing their homes you could always rent the home and make money that way until the market picks back up. Then you could sell and make a decent profit depending on the house you buy. But that way you could be making money both ways.

Real estate or stocks...I choose real estate. Smile My reasons: I know nothing about stocks. Real estate is something that WILL ALWAYS be there. People always need somewhere to live. Smile Just make sure you keep in mind that you will have monthly expenses including tax, home owners, etc. When a home is vacant you will lose money. If you plan on fixing up the property, make sure you take into account for those expenses as well. ALWAYS get an inspection done.

I recommend accepting Section 8 for 3 reasons. 1. You can get paid more. 2. You have a steady income coming in from that, almost immediant occupancy 3. A house sells more when it is rented out for a higher monthly rent

Stocks are not such a good idea. You can find yourself investing in something that can vanish off the market. As others said before me, a house it's a house. It's gonna be here always, not like a company.
