This is a very interesting article from MarketWatch.com Interestingly enough, I was having a conversation with my wife last night trying to decide what and where we are going to invest in. Here is a piece of the article: Some of the best markets to invest in single-family homes as rentals are small towns in the heartland, according to recent rankings from HomeVestors of America and Local Market Monitor. “Many of these markets not only have unemployment rates well below the national average, but they show strong job growth and housing prices have bottomed out,” said Ingo Winzer, president and founder of Local Market Monitor, a real-estate forecasting firm, in a statement. HomeVestors is a real-estate investment company. Small cities may have less risk for investors than big ones, but for...

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you are surviving the week! Tomorrow is Veterans Day. Here is a snip from wikipedia about Veterans Day: Veterans Day, formerly Armistice Day, is an annual United States holiday honoring militaryveterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It is coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.) The holiday is commonly printed as Veteran's Day or Veterans' Day in calendars and advertisements. While these spellings are grammatica...
