After meeting with a financial counselor, I realized that there were some issues with my long-term plan. It occurred to me that we needed to invest in some real property, or else we could be left wondering what to do about retirement.

After investing in a four plex, it was nice to see how much better things became financially. Check out this blog to learn more about real estate and investing.
