What is Real Estate?

WHAT IS REAL ESTATE?

"I am the basis of all wealth, the heritage of the wise, the thrifty andprudent. I am the poor man's joy and comfort, the rich man's prize, the right hand of capital, the silent partner of many thousands of successful men.

I am the solace of the widow, the comfort of old age, the cornerstone of security against misfortune and want. I am handed down to children, through generations, as a thing of greatest worth. I am the choicest fruit of toil.

 Credit respects me. Yet I am humble. I stand before every man bidding him know me for what I am and possessme. I grow and increase in value through countless days. Though I seem dormant, my worth increases, never failing never ceasing, time is my aid and population heaps up my gain.

Fire and the elements I defy, for theycannot destroy me. My possessors learn to believe in me; invariably they become envied.

While all things wither and decay, I survive. The centuries find me younger, increasing in strength.

The thriftless speak ill of me. The charlatans of finance attack me. I am trustworthy. I am sound. Unfailingly I triumph and detractors aredisproved.

Minerals and oils come from me. I am producer of food, the basis for ships and factories, the foundation of banks.

Yet I am so common that thousands, unthinkingly and unknowingly, pass me by.

 I am real estate.
