Investing in property

In a downturn economy, many people are concerned about losing capital and hesitate about entering into new investments. After all, the stock market can plunge without warning, and the rate of interest on stocks and bonds often are less than the rate of inflation. The one investment that is not only recession-proof, but also may actually flourish in a downturn, is real estate. Although there is some risk involved in property investment, the smart investor will find it can be a profitable addition to their portfolio regardless of the state of the economy.
