You found a $20 bill -- now what?
Learn about investment options
When prices and interest rates are low, it can be a great time for real estate investors, says Dick Gaylord, past president of the National Association of Realtors.
His pick for a $20 windfall is a copy of "Real Estate Investing for Dummies," by Eric Tyson. Depending on the venue, the book is available new or used for $16 or less.
For people who want to invest in real estate but know little about it, this will help them understand what's involved and get them moving in the right direction, Gaylord says.
