People believe that real estate investing is risky.
Real estate investing is not risky. Being financially uneducated is.
Real estate investing is like driving a car. If you have no driver's training or driving experience, driving a car is very, very risky.
But if you take a drivers' ed course and practice, driving a car can be a freeing experience. Your world becomes bigger and more fun.
While there is risk; driving or investing does not have to be risky.
