Real estate investing can be a great way to earn a passive income. Once you’ve done your homework, invested in a property, and found someone to pay for its use every month, you can sit back and enjoy that steady check coming in.

Possibilities include turning the property into a hunting lease or leasing it out as farmland. You could also plant timber on part of the property you aren’t leasing and either sell the timber when the time comes or simply have more value in the land if you choose to sell down the road.
Advertising has come a long way over the years. We’ve even talked about how the advertising potential of the metaverse could impact real-world real estate. But the classics are classics for a reason, and that certainly holds true for billboard advertising.
While TV and radio stations can be changed or silenced, traffic creates a bit of a captive audience for a billboard message. And there are situations where nothing else would quite do — like a massive, mouthwatering billboard photo of food right before …….
