Have you ever watched sea turtles swim to and from the beach?

These magnificent creatures are always swimming with the tide – and never against it.

Real estate investors might want to consider taking the same approach.

You don’t have to be invested in real estate all the time.

When the tide is coming in and home prices are rising, stay invested.

But when the tide is going out and prices are falling, invest your money elsewhere.
