Guys what do you prefer to invest $$$$ in REAL STATE or ONLINE!
Depends on how much money you have to invest
Diversity is great and investing offline and online both is necessary I think for the greatest
stability. If your online projects are going well then why not invest some into something decently solid offline.
For steady return Real Estate but for quick returns Online

That depends on too many factors. I think investing on something you know best is important. As someone who knows nothing about real estate, I own a few estates in growing areas. But I'm not interested in flipping them. They are good investments that will grow over time. Just rent them out so they become real asset without any reoccurring maintenance expenditure.
I'd rather build more sites and test some startup ideas because those are what I do every day. But I'm not very comfortable to pour all money into my online endeavor so investing in real estate offers the diversification I want.
You also need to consider the risk, amount of effort to maintain it / fully passive, etc. Too many factors to consider.
Given the choice of real estate and online, it's not so difficult to choose, I will probably goes to real estate.
But, it again depends of where are you. On my place, the real estate industry is booming all over the country, thus increasing the probability that my investment will be profitable.
That said, the best investment is a mixture of safe investment (treasury bills, long-maturity bonds, gold bars), with some moderately safe investment (real estate, real business, online business, bonds, mutual funds), and also some risky investment (forex trading, commodity trading, index trading, etc.). It all depends on your risk assessment, how do you see your own risks. The more risky a business is, the more profit/loss you can receive. For me it's 20% safe, 50% moderate, and the rest is on risky investments.
Real estate is more stable in my opinion. How much do you want to invest ?
Depends where you live. In certain areas of the US, ongoing costs as far as taxes and maintenance eat into your profit so much that your returns over time are minimal if the price of the real estate never increases significantly. Other places have great prices. Every investment needs to be analyzed individually, not fit into a box of whether it's online or offline.
Have > 50000. buy real estate and rent it. Have less money invest in online and make enouph money to buy real estate.
Real estate is the best way to go.....
great thanks for all views i love to hear that both are best way to go
Real STATE should be first Priority
And Online then
As REAL State not Loss it's value at least you will get what you paid + you can earn from it as well gurannted
Real estate value is never a guarantee, at least through my experience.
The value may have not gone down, but liquidating a real estate assets could be another problem. Not to mention that it some cases it could go down.
Consider this problem :
- If you purchase a house in an area. Later that area becomes a criminal-ridden area, your real estate value may not go down, but no one really will purchase your real estate, hence making your asset very difficult to liquidate, not to mention that banks may value your assets less than you buy it.
- Or, if your purchase a house in an area that you perceive will be a great well-developed area in the future. But after few years, the developers fail to develop your area. Again, your asset value is not sinking, but it's not very liquid, and have a very low ROI.
But on the other hand, considering normal market, real estate market will always grow. Take note that the growth may be very small in some places (usually the growth will be small in very big cities), or very big (newly developed rural areas, developing big cities, etc.). For starters, in US buy houses. Or, if you live in Asia, purchase apartments in bulk.
Real Estate is not a passive investment. If you buy the right property in the right area, get the right tenant, and the right property manager then it will feel passive except for maybe twice a month when you have to pay the mortgage and review the statement from the property manager. Most months your involvement will be more. That said I have a client that is a real estate investor that had a brick and mortar business for thirty years. He sold the business separate from the real estate when trying to decide what to do next he realized that he made more money on the real estate than the business, even factoring in the profits he took from the business all those years. He put all his money in real estate.
I can think of no better place to park cash than real estate, but there are a lot of different ways to invest in it and you need to find someone familiar with most of them to discuss your needs that will then point you in the right direction. If you ask someone that works on commission they are going to point you to the property with the biggest commission.
The short answer that is probably the most accurate was this one
Buy something in Europe -> neither of those will happen and the price will go up
@OP: Buy something in munich, germany. It's expensive, but you can charge almsot any rent you want since theres 10k+ people looking for rented apartments
I would love to invest in real estate. It is one of the most lucrative and smart investment as ROI is high.
Have you considered what type of real estate investing you are interested in? Because, just like internet marketing, there are many channels that you can make money from.
Real Estate Like any other investment/business you must do your due-diligence before you purchase, and make sure you are making a profit the moment you write the check... I REPEAT... Make sure you are making a profit the moment you write the check!
Me personally, my real estate strategy is I playing bank and holding onto real estate contracts (mortgages/trust deeds/land contracts) and collect installment payments with no worries about leaky sinks, boiler, etc... My only concern is that they continue to make their mortgage payments to me... and I profit from the Interest.
(example: I purchase a $50,000.00 Contract, 6%, 30year term... that is $299.78 a month for 360 months=$107,919.09=$57,919.09 PROFIT)
Pretty good ROI (return on investment) isn?t it?
Have any questions about this method or maybe another real estate investing strategy? Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Continue to take care.

'Online' is a bit broad. Real estate can be good if you buy during bad economic times.
However, stocks are still the best long term investment. I would say ETFs and Index funds are next best if you're looking to reduce risk, but it's a tradeoff for earnings.
Here's an article I read a little while back: http://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/103013/stocks-remain-best-longterm-bet.asp
real estate my man, something that you can get a return payout on
