Stocks go down and blood pressure goes up
For those of you who like to invest in the stock market then you know it hasn't been easy in recent days. Times like these are a great reminder on why one should have a diversified portfolio containing both real estate and stocks. What sets real estate aside from stocks first and foremost is that it's tangible. You can see it, touch it and even live in it. You also have lots of options when you invest in real estate, the most notable are to sell for a great profit (hopefully), rent it out or call it home. The Canadian real estate market continues to thrive, totally oblivious to the naysayers, and with good reason. This country is awesome, it is growing steadily with many new immigrants and hard working Canadians leading the way! It is the host to world class cities, Toronto being the 4th most populated in North America! So perhaps give your blood pressure a break from watching your stock portfolio and take a look at adding to your real estate portfolio.
