Real estate may be a wise investment for millennials

Missouri residents who are in their 20s and 30s may not have a lot of money to make investments. Even though young people can be more comfortable taking risks than older people, most millennials are too cautious to put the little capital that they have into the stock market. In fact, the average millennial keeps about 70 percent of their portfolio in cash.

Tax savings and warehouse shortage could make REITs more popular

Investors in Kansas and elsewhere tend to move their money out of high-yield investments like real estate investment trusts when economic conditions improve. Equities markets offer the promise of robust growth when consumer confidence is high and unemployment and inflation rates are low, and equities are even more attractive to investors when interest rates are on the rise.

Our condo association was faced with monumental construction issues thanks to the original developer of our complex. We were cash poor and in no position to get legal representation without a contingency fee arrangement. Luckily for us, Scott Long and Burke Robinson were willing to take us on as clients. Their work ethic, professionalism and knowledge of condominium construction served our association very well. Any association would be well served in hiring these gentlemen to represent them.
