Hello Humayun.  Thanks for your post. In response to your question, "Should I invest in apartments or houses?"  That question is best answered by you and base your answer on what you are interested in pursuing.  Since you are out of a job, it may be prudent to first stabilize your income while building your investment plan.  Pursuing your dreams is the joy of life.  

Everyone at Bigger Pockets has valuable information about real estate investing. This is a fabulous place to gather information and learn about different avenues open to the new and seasoned investor.   Do you have a real estate license?  That may be a good step to take if you do not have one while formalizing your plans. 

I bet a lot of people would love to hear about your plans and progress. Please keep us informed and best wishes.
