Difference Between Property Investing and Real Estate Investing

What is the difference between property investing and real estate investing? Whether you are an investor or a homeowner, it is important that you can differentiate between these two crucial terms.

What is Real Estate?

Real estate refers to the land, and it is the land that will appreciate (go up) in value, as this table demonstrates.
