This is not at all helpful, by keeping a goal of saving 200 dollars a month for example will set a borderline that you will refuse to cross automatically.

Investing and Purchasing Real Estate
Investing in real estate simply put is the purchase and development of property to be later sold at a higher rate. Now investing can be seen as a way to make another larger income though it isn’t an income you’ll obtain at a regular basis. Purchasing real estate can be thought of as buying fixed assets.

When selecting a property it is best to have a conveyancer with you to ensure you get a good deal.
The role of the conveyancer is to review the contract that is put up for sale by the owner, investigate any problems associated with it to ensure you won’t be caught in the middle of anything and even pay of remaining fees after sale is confirmed. This makes it easier for you especially if you have a heavy timetable.
Buying Fixed Assets
As mentioned earlier, real estate is a form of fixed assets. Fixed assets are items that you have complete ownership of and are considered valued. Take a car for example, sure the value of the car goes down per year which is depreciation but nonetheless it can be still sold for a base price. Fixed assets as mentioned before allows you to have financial stability in case of any emergency or crisis. Some individuals for example purchase gold bricks and jewelry, items that don’t exactly go down in price. Other examples include company stocks that you own or part ownership in other companies.
