When you invest in stocks, bonds, commodities and other types of securities, typically you will work with a broker who will collaborate with you to choose the best opportunities that will provide the type of payout you want.
You can choose high-risk investments that have a bigger potential short-term payout or more conservative investments that pay smaller short-term returns but offer more long-term stability.
Regardless of which type of investments you choose, you have very little ability to control the value of the security you choose because that value is determined by the marketplace, not the individual investor.
In other words, if you buy 100 shares of Amazon stock at $70.00/share, your investment is worth $7,000 at the time of purchase.
While the value of that investment can go up and down, you have no real control over the value of Amazon stock. All you can do is research, predict and invest based on expectations, unlike in active or even passive real estate investing in Illinois, as you will learn by calling (312) 757-8232 today.
Active vs. Passive Real Estate Investing in Illinois – What Are The Main Differences?
The main difference between active real estate investing and passive real estate investing is who is doing the work.
If you’re actively investing in real estate… you’re finding the property, negotiating the deal, fixing up the property, finding tenants, managing tenants, etc.
If you’re passively investing in real estate… you’re playing a much smaller role.
Your role can be as little as just providing the money… and a turn key real estate investment company like Chicago Property Deals takes care of the rest.
