Many people in the United States of America choose to serve in the military. This choice does not exclude them from the option to invest in real estate. Doing so can be tricky, as the military moves members around quite often. People who choose to rent as they move around the country are throwing money away, when they could be investing that same rent fee every month and growing equity. Military members should buy real estate.
- Real estate, as an investment opportunity, differs significantly from passive investments, like mutual funds, because it allows the investor to directly affect the outcome of the investment,
- Some military personnel find that they enter the real estate game practically by accident.
- Since they move so often, it becomes eaier just to rent out the home they are vacating.
“You do not need to live and invest in the same location, which is great news for those investing while serving in the military.”
