Q: I would like to purchase real estate as an investment. I don’t know if that should be a townhouse or condo or home to rent out or perhaps land where I would eventually build and resettle. Any suggestions on where to begin?

A: Vacant land generally makes a poor investment. You’re better off buying a single family home you can fix up and rent, or a condominium.
