If I had a large sum of money, I would like to buy a business, instead of a house.
Although buying a house and renting it provide to the owner a considerable sum of money, purchasing a business could more rapidly increase the owner`s wealth. On the one hand a business is more risky and the investment proves not to be profitable, but on the other, owning a business means more advantages for the owner and for the society in which he/she lives. As a result of an investment in a business there is created new jobs, it increases the competition and there is provided new goods on the market. The owner can decide for his/her business to merge with another business if it cannot face the competition or it wants to attract new more customers.

He/she can only rent it or sell it also. Besides, a further investment in a house is not so fast recovered with money obtained through renting it.
Taking the right decision of buying a house or a business depends also on the owner`s needs. If he/she already has several houses to rent, he/she will buy a profitable business. On contrary, if he/she has already a good business, he/she could buy a house. But one thing is sure: never, a good businessman will prefer to buy a house instead of having another profitable business.
