  1. Living in your own home is one wonderful experience! Investing in a home as income property is also a better investment than the “idea” of ownership of stocks and even bonds. In the worst case scenario, when everything goes wrong, at least the land and building are your concrete objects of ownership. You can build on the lot or improve on it because it is concrete! Thnk on that!
