I own a lot of residential property and think it is a good investment and intend it to be part of my retirement plan. You do have to buy smart and be select. Not all property makes a good investment.

Jack Lewitz there may be many reasons for it. 

The most important one is - shouldn't we trust the product we sell?

Because it teaches you to invest in yourself and your future.  Most people don't buy a home and then next month pull their money out and invest in something else.

Real estate is a good investment because it is a finite item, especially if you're buying a property with land attached.

By that, I mean that you can't make any more land.  You can build up to the sky, but you can't make any more dirt, so it will always increase in value no matter what the market does.  Land is a finite source.  You can't manafacturer more land.  So from an economic standpoint, it will always be a rare commodity and gain in value, regardless of how other sectors of the economy fare.
That's why I always advocate to my clients to "Buy the Dirt!"
