This week, I wrote an article on starting a Home Staging Business
I think, if you have the money to invest, and time to wait out the economic dip, that now is a great time to invest in real estate.
In many cases, you won't be able to flip a house in a few weeks, but I believe prices are right for someone to be able to buy very low, hold on for a year or more, and then really make a good return on the investment.
Or, alternately, buy houses for rental properties. You could scoop up some rental properties at great prices, cover your costs for awhile, and then probably increase your rents or sell the property when the market goes back up.
Anyone care to share thoughts & experiences?
