Where is the Best City for Property Investment in 2011?

A real estate professionals’ survey revealed that the best place for developing property in Europe is currently Istanbul. The largest city in Turkey is by far the best place for purchasing property on the entire continent. According to more than 600 real estate professionals, Turkey in general is the best country to invest in property.

The Istanbul Gem Invest agency director and property investment expert, Alexander Tomlinson, said that from an international perspective, the most attractive prospects are apartments in the Bahcesehir area and those like it.

US dollar 2011

In this article I have discussed the current US dollar trends: where the downward pressure is coming from, what opposing forces are working to maintain its value, and what is in store for the dollar in terms of its global dominance.

How to Invest In Stocks for Beginners

Investing is a topic that everyone seems to have something to say about, but some so-called “advice” is nothing more than a bunch of investment myths. Here are 5 of these myths and the investment mistakes that I have seen people commonly make:

Investment Myth #1: I’m too young to bother investing in my retirement.
Like many people, you are probably saying you are too young to worry about retirement, even though you may be in your thirties. The reality is that you are never too young to think about retirement, because time really does go by quickly. Your retirement will only be your “Golden Years” if you actually start planning and investing in it now, so that you have money to spend when you reach that age, instead of working overtime and retiring later than others.
