Five Reasons Why Your Real Estate Investments Aren't Earning You Money: I recently spoke with an investor who told me that he has $500,000 in cash and is looking for the right investment property to acquire. As usual, I asked my standard set of questions: What are your goals, time horizon, risk tolerance and experience level? His responses were stable cash flow with some potential for appreciation, long-term time horizon of 5 to 10 years, not tolerant of high-risk investments and his real estate experience was limited to the purchase of his single-family residence. These are fairly common answers for new investors who are looking to steadily grow their wealth. So far, so good.
