Apart from maxing out 401k and Roth IRA, what are other means of saving money?

I think you mean places to put money as opposed to means to save it (?). If you have maxed out the tax-advantaged accounts, then you can look to taxable investment accounts, investing in real estate, loaning it through social lending sites, any number of things.

Perhaps you can be a bit more specific with your particular circumstances and goals?

I need information in doing value trading and real estate investment. Never bought a house and hence my expenses and time spent on house has been minimal. Is not buying a house a good strategy or not?

Thanks.

Two words: Do not.

Of course, YMMV.
