Secrets of Making Money from Real Estate - Part 1

By John Whiteside

There are three investment vehicles which can make you rich. Stocks, businesses, and real estate.

Stocks can return lots of money in a short amount of time, and can have a steady rate of return using investing techniques such as dollar cost averaging. However, but how much stock do you think you can buy for $20,000 dollars? $20,000 worth of stock. What about using someone else's money to buy more?
