Real estate investing has traditionally served as a strong potential source of wealth creation in the United States. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, wealth was measured primarily in terms of the amount of land owned by an individual. Real estate continues to serve as an important asset class in properly managing investor wealth and goes far beyond the ownership of raw land or a home.
While it is possible to build an investment portfolio limited to the more traditional asset classes such as stocks, bonds and cash, we believe that allocating a portion of an investor's assets to real estate is important for diversification and portfolio risk management. Equally important, real estate may provide a steady stream of income and the potential for capital appreciation depending on the investment approach and asset ownership structure chosen.
