Risk

This winter will be one of the coldest on record.

Where will you go? How about some place warm?

Timeshares still available, but strike while the iron is hot!

You’ve probably heard the old investing chestnut “Buy land, they’re not making more of it!”
But what if that wasn’t the case?

There are about 1500 potentially active volcanoes above sea level. Think about it. This is the future of real estate.

“But aren’t active volcanoes that spew molten lava dangerous and/or potentially bad for my health?”

That’s what real estate professionals call a manageable risk.

It’s true that you may be immolated by an active volcano if you pitch a tent in its maw, but it all depends on how much risk you’re willing to take for a hot property.

ILLUSTRATED SPECTRUM OF RISK
(on a scale of one to five)

One: Not at all near an active volcano.
Two: Somewhat close to an active volcano and enjoying the view!
Three: Things are heating up, but throw on some shades and you can deal with it!
Four: Maybe somewhat too close to an active volcano. But its okay, because... sunglasses!
Five: Oh. Actually seriously enveloped by searing hot magma. Maybe those sunglasses weren't all that hot afterall.

Okay, so maybe this isn’t the best idea. You can’t always manage the risk. You wouldn’t jump in a volcano, stand on the surface of the sun, wrestle a shark, or use tobacco. Those are the sorts of risks not worth taking.

If it’s risky, why risk it?
Because… huh.
Why risk it?
