Residential isn't slated to recover until 2009 according to analysts after Moody's posted its last report on homebuilding. Just a consideration. In my opinion, there are still some deals in commercial, but they are few and far between in the states because of the high amount of capital out there chasing deals. Look into REITS and other funds that invest abroad. Canada has been hot for the past year or so. I'm sure there are some developing market plays as well out there where you could make a killing.
