Buying your own home is one of the smartest ways to invest. You put money into your home every month when you pay down your mortgage, and you gain capital appreciation as home values rise over time. But home ownership is only smart if you treat it as a long term investment, so you can wait out dips in the market. Keep in mind that buying or selling a home involves transactional costs like mortgage closing fees and real estate commissions, which is one reason why real estate is rarely a smart short term investment.

Tenants & Landlords Golden Rules of Renting Property
Since retirement accounts are subject to contribution limits and cannot be withdrawn until reaching a minimum retirement age, you will also have to invest some money in regular, taxable accounts. Use your tax-benefited retirement accounts, such as a non-taxable Roth IRA or a tax-deferred traditional IRA or 401(k), for those investments that show the greatest promise for high returns. Use your taxable accounts for funds you need to access sooner and for additional investments that exceed the retirement account contribution limits.
So you're looking to rent a property? A few golden rules apply and renting is a happier process for landlords and tenants alike.

All market sectors in a capitalist society function according to the economic principle of supply and demand. The value of any commodity and the price of any asset are determined by the balance between supply and demand. Simply stated, when the demand exceed the supply, price increase. When this theory is applied to property, it becomes clear why property has remained an asset that continues to increase in value over centuries. And as the world population grows, the demand for property increases.
