>Each type of investment takes a little bit of knowledge up front, some more than others (like real estate). Are there other things that you could become knowledgeable about and earn a decent return on? I'm thinking about things like collectibles, antique furniture or cars, etc.>Do NOT think antiques as a realistic long term investment!! 1) antique value is based on whim and fashion-of-the-moment, 2) like jewelry, antiques (even fleamarket 'finds') are very inflated in price, 3) selling antiques requires one to deeply discount inorder to get a dealer to buy it from you. If it is truly valuable you would need an appraisal by a certified professional and would likely have to sell it to a dealier (at a deep discount) who has the clients looking for that particular object.If you like antiques, enjoy your antiques but don't think of them as 'investments'.
