The Media: Clueless on CRE

The Media: Clueless on CRE
By: Nicholas A. Dunlap, CPM

The media just doesn’t get it when it comes to reporting on real estate investments. Even a publication such as Smart Money misses the mark. The link below, taken from a weekend article on real estate investing, touts buying shares in a REIT and flipping houses as the best opportunities for real estate investors at present. Clearly, this article is geared toward the less-savvy investor. There are number of additional, more fruitful real estate investments available at present. You will see my response to this column in the “comments” section attached to the article <a href="“>here.

If you are new to commercial real estate investing and are looking for a bare-bones, entry level guide as to the what, when and why, you should buy my book “The Four Benefits: Commercial Real Estate Investing & You”, available here.

Don’t let the HGTV shows fool you, there is much more to real estate investing than flipping houses.
