I think we give away our destiny when we invest money in the stock market. I think we should take control and invest in wealth creation. A rental is an example of investing in yourself. An income property can be an investment for the future. At age 50 I had to move back into a rental home I invested in years age. Thank God had that option. Would I had been homeless? It is not impossible. Anyone can find themselves out of luck and broke at any point of their life. A rental unit that brings in even a small revenue is good thinking. Firoz Patel can attest to the wisdom of a rental income.
