Types of Income Properties For Investment Opportunities

“The investment opportunities that we see today are just the beginning. The tidal wave has just started to hit the beach,” said Michael Covarrubias, chairman and CEO of TMG Partners real estate. He told a group of 140 investors in San Francisco, “The key to the real estate business is, and always will be, timing.” The best income properties right now are foreclosure homes and apartment complexes.
