A question that I get a lot that I’m passionate about is this – can real estate as an investment ever go to zero?

The answer is no, it can’t. That’s what makes real estate such a sound investment. Stocks as an investment, on the other hand, can go to zero. I have unfortunately experienced that personally. A stock that I owned just filed for Chapter 13, and the price went to zero.

It’s not a good feeling to have, and it’s exactly why real estate is such a sound investment to add to your portfolio whether you’re a seasoned investor or just starting out. Real estate never goes to zero because it will always be in demand.

It depends what you want out of real estate – land, speculation for appreciation, a multi-family home, monthly cash flow, or a long-term appreciation play, to name a few. There are a lot of things to consider when looking at real estate, like potential ROI (return on investment) that we can advise you with when investing in real estate.
