Here’s the difference between saving and investing and how they work.
I’m in real estate, not financing, but when I talk about real estate investing in these blogs, I want to ensure you have a great understanding of the benefits of saving versus investing and when to use each.
Whether it’s in real estate, the stock market, or something else, investing is a longer-term wealth-building tool. This is something you should consider when looking into your future and thinking, “I want to have X one day.” For example, retirement. In my opinion, retirement accounts should be in some sort of investment that is getting you a return on your money. Investing is for money you want to grow.
“Investing is a longer-term wealth-building tool.”
Saving means your money isn’t decreasing. You want to protect your money. For example, you may want to buy a car with cash in the future, your kids may need braces, you might want to have an emergency fund in case an accident or something unforeseen happens. Everyone should have savings because you don’t want to invest your emergency fund, for example.
In future blogs, we’re going to discuss what return on investment is and how to make money by investing in real estate. Let’s get your money working for you.
