Why USA Investment Property is a Good Choice
A common misconception about Detroit is that the entire city is destitute and headed for complete disaster; when in fact the truth is that the city is making great strides to regain its high acclaim. With the restructuring of the big three, the heart of the American automotive industry; the constructing of the new light rail transportation; and the relocation of major corporations back to the city, these changes are all necessary elements for the equation of success and a booming and thriving economy for Detroit.
Though the housing market is lagging in recent advancements it will soon follow trend. Many investors understand the economic cycle and see Detroit as prime opportunity to begin using real estate as long term investment vehicles that offer steady high returns. Investors will earn steady rates of gain as long as they invest in the market while prices are at historical lows. Here are some common myths about Detroit that are actually quite unbelievable.
Detroit is all bad...
This is one of the funniest we've heard. Nothing is ever all bad. People, opportunities and situations are only bad when proper research and adequate time to investigate have not been given. It wouldn't be difficult to believe it with the way media portrays the city. Most things that make it to national headlines about the city are negative. It is true, Detroit has been hit hard during the economic crisis and one of the keys to reviving the city is rebuilding its infrastructure. Thus, the construction of major attractions like the Detroit International Riverwalk, a 102 million dollar development; Campus Martius Park; and the light rail transportation system. If the city was so terrible, organizations would not be investing hundreds of millions of dollars into an economy and city they felt wouldn't recover. They are making an investment into a city they believe will bounce back and once again be the home of major industries.
Don't believe the hype. With any large city there are good aspects and some not so good aspects. Investigate the matter further and do your due diligence to discover all the positive opportunities Detroit has to offer. Detroit currently presents a prime opportunity to build wealth through real estate investing. For more information of how you can take advantage of the opportunity, visit DetroitPropertyInvestor.com.

Detroit Real Estate Investment Myths - Don't Believe the Hype
In the depressed Michigan housing market, investors are now able to buy bank owned properties for les than 25 cents on the dollar. Once re-habbed, the houses are HUD-appraised. If such a home is purchased by a senior, 62 or older, who is approved for a reversed mortgage, this senior can now be a proud home owner without ever having to make house payments again. The investors are willing to provide a private mortgage or land contract on the home while the senior obtains the reverse mortgage.
Isn't this a great program?! A senior with job loss or income reduction can now own a home without making any mortgage payments*. This senior can now not only be a proud home owner, but also increase his or her financial independence and have cash available for a higher style of living.
*The senior still has an obligation to pay for home insurance and property taxes.

Over 15 Great Things About Detroit Metro Area
Last November I attended the Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers game at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan and thanks to the fine people at Levy Restaurants and Finn Partners, I was able to meet up with Executive Chef Joe Nader and learn about the wonderful culinary offerings that the stadium has available for its patrons.
Food at sporting events has long been thought of as overpriced and boring, with the basic staples of popcorn, hot dogs, pizza and nachos generally leading the way. However, over the past few years companies like Levy Restaurants, who operate the concessions and restaurants at over 100 venues around the world, have begun to take stadium food to the next level.
Although the staples are still popular on game day (Ford Field sells approximately 10,000 hot dogs a game), Chef Nader strives to deliver restaurant quality food throughout the stadium. To do this on a game day is no easy task. It typically sees the Chef and his team starting at 4AM and working until the stadium is cleared out. This includes preparing all the food for the 132 luxury suites, the Hall of Legends restaurant featuring the famous Chef's Table, all general concessions, a number of concept restaurants inside the stadium and catering for the press, teams and referees.
Dearborn Sausage Company is another local Michigan vendor and this year has become the official hot dog of the Detroit Lions. The quality of the product is so good that I would challenge anyone to find another hot dog as good anywhere.
You cannot talk about the Detroit Lions and Ford Field without bringing up Thanksgiving. The Detroit Lions have hosted the annual Thanksgiving Day contest since 1934, with last years game against Houston being the 73rd in the teams history. Chef Nader had a few special things planned as always on Thanksgiving. At his Chef's Table he featured a Thanksgiving station with all the fixings and they also served over 1,000 jumbo turkey legs throughout the stadium.
If you are heading down to Ford Field in the future don't just get stuffed at the tailgate, get down to the stadium early and check out some of the excellent food items available.
I would like to send out a special thank you to Chef Joe Nader for being so gracious with his time and to Sarah Janousek of Finn Partners for making this all happen.
