Basic Real Estate: Direct vs. Indirect InvestmentsI'm writing a finance paper (i'm not really finance-oriented, i'm in the liberal arts school), and i'm having a bit of trouble getting started on it. I started writing it on two different topics but I've tossed them. Now, i'm trying to write my paper on Real Estate, and i kind of have a good idea on what i want to write it about. Originally i was going to write on indirect real estate investments (Syndicates, LLP's, REIT's) but now i kind of want to write on booming Real Estate markets (if there are any, i heard there are at least in Philly) and how they may have sprung up. Details like why they sprung up, where, price jumps, profitable investments, etc. If anyone knows of any information on these things, or how it came about (us coming out of the housing crisis). Is Indirect Real Estate involved in this in any way?Please, send any information my way as i wish to get involved in this field in the future in some way. Also If you have any websites that could be of help that would be great as well ! I'm very excited !December 10 2013 - Philadelphia00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
