Want Quick And Easy Investments? Forget Real Estate


If you think actively investing in real estate is all about money in the mailbox, think again. Business Insider reports seasoned real estate investors say the business is anything but passive. In fact, sometimes it can be as demanding as a job. I think one of the biggest misnomers about real estate investing is that it's passive investing. People think that they're just going to get mailbox money, and real estate is not that.

  • What's The Difference Between A CD And A Bond?

    For investors looking for a stable stream of income, CDs and bonds are a good place to start. According to Business Insider, although the two financial instruments have much in common, they are distinctly different in several key areas. For example, CDs are insured by banks--bonds are not. Bonds are traded on the open market--CDs are not. Bonds can be liquidated quickly, but CDs tie up your money. Government-issued bond yields aren't taxed. But if you are in, say, the 24% tax bracket, you'll be taxed $24 for every $100 you earn in interest on your CD. Also, bonds have long-term maturity dates, from at least 10 to as long as 30 years. However, CDs usually mature within five years.
