When it comes to pandemics or infectious disease, population density is an issue. Jason Hartman discusses some additional property investment parameters to consider when investing. Suburban living, a uniquely American movement, has great potential for growth, both locally and worldwide. While the location might have been the way of the past, housing is the way of the future.
