This is most attractive for workers who plan to invest in real estate. Although it is mainly used for personal buildings, but give honest advice from me, it is better for you as a young man or woman to build it, then rent it out and let the building pay you back for the loan while you sit down and collect rents .

Some smart young couples use this program to develop their homes stressful. Although high return, high risk, this is by far the best and easiest way I can recommend to anyone when building their home. Before the current problems with most HYIPs, there is a high yield investment program promoted by an oil and gas company in Nigeria called Nospectus. You invest N450.000 into their business and they in turn will pay you N40 at the end of each month.000 in 12 months, you would have made 100% turnover and the good thing about this business is that you will have your capital of N450.000 to withdraw at any time. (Also, among other things, you have club freedom.)

One couple built theirs to 200.000 N per month on, ie 5 slots, and they build the house of their choice so stressful that you can imagine 200.To have N000 per month as additional salary without any further effort. "Note: Although I don't recommend it, I know quite a few people in this program.

There are also many HYIPs on the internet, but you need to consult those who already deal with it before you get scammed. It's less risky to invest in stocks, bonds, etc. Buying and using the profits to build your home.

"My general advice is to start small"

me. It is very easy to generate a steady cash flow for your building.

ii. The higher the investment, the more money will help finance your construction project.

I. High risk

ii. Stocks can crash

iii. Businesses can pack tomorrow
