Real Estate vs. Bonds

Treasury, savings, agency, municipal, and corporate bonds offer stability and predictability, making them ideal for risk-averse investors seeking to protect and preserve their capital. On the other hand, real estate can provide higher returns, ongoing cash flow, and potential tax benefits but involves more risk. 


Bonds Not As Well Known

Whereas most of us are familiar with real estate and stocks only a few of us know anything about bonds. A bond is simply a loan taken out by a company. Instead of going to a bank, the company gets the money from investors who buy its bonds. In exchange for the capital, the company pays an interest coupon, which is the annual interest rate paid on a bond expressed as a percentage of the face value. The company pays the interest at predetermined intervals (usually annually or semiannually) and returns the principal on the maturity date, ending the loan.
