Real estate can a relatively safe investment. The absolute safest would be insured savings (short term investment, immediate accessibility) and government bonds (long term investment, usually only acceptable once mature).

Risk is usually directly proportional to reward. The highest risk vs reward is gambling; somewhere in the middle is the stock market; real estate is in the lower category, finally with government bonds being considered one of the safest.

There's also the capital gains tax to consider, at least in the US. If your gains are realized within a calendar year, you get taxed at the maximum amount. If it's over a year, the gains are just considered taxable income and are added to your gross.

It's impossible to predict the future, obviously. If I had invested $1000 in Tesla 5 years ago, that initial investment would now be worth over $20,000. If I had invested $500 into Google during my senior year of high school, I'd now have over $15k.

But...That's all money, and money can't buy you happiness. My father in law encouraged us to invest in our memories together, rather than money.

I noticed that more and more comments appear on social networks in which people write that they have a lot of money. It is especially funny to read when they offer to share money with you. Lol
