How to get started as a real estate investor
There's more than one way to become a real estate investor. The fastest, easiest way is to invest is in REITS (Real Estate Investment Trusts). They're as easy to buy as a stock or mutual fund since you're not buying a physical property. Made up of commercial real estate, these Trusts include office buildings, retail, apartments and hotels. 
 
You can also buy a 2-4 unit complex, live in one unit and rent out the rest. With this strategy, your loan can be an owner-occupied, Fannie Mae loan. That means a lower interest rate than a standard non-owner occupied loan for a standard rental property. If you decide to purchase an investment property, just make sure you have more money coming in than going out!

Are MEN or WOMEN Buyers more Likely to Compromise?

Are men or women buyers more likely to compromise?
Real estate is all about compromise. Did you know that 76 percent of all sellers make at least one concession or compromise? The top concession is lowering the sales price (34 percent), according to a Zillow survey.
 
What's surprising is that there's a big different between women and men when it comes to compromising during a home purchase. NAR (National Association of REALTORS®) research shows that women are better overall at compromising than men. In fact, single males are much more likely to not make any compromises during a home purchase than single females, married couples and unmarried couples.
 
There are generational differences, too. Millennial sellers – 85 percent – make the most compromises to finalize a home sale, Generation X is next at 75 percent, followed by Silent Generation sellers at 70 percent, and Boomers at 67 percent.
