Your H1B visa is for employment purpose. What that means is that U cannot be employed elsewhere. As long as U are in real estate as an investor–that is not working, thus not “employed”-- then thre is no problem; for your activity will be considered as an investor but not as an employee of your investment firm.
However should you start as a business entity and employ yourself as a regular employee the U will be in violation of your INS status.
In short, U are free to do anything legal with your earned money.
