Real Estate Investor Slowdown

Real estate has been weird for the last couple of years, especially for real estate investors.

The fixed rate mortgage is the most powerful investment tool in the universe because it helps you build wealth in three ways:

1) You benefit from price appreciation that comes from inflation. Also, assuming you invest 20% down, 10% appreciation actually turns into a 50% gain in your money.
