Real estate is powerful- just check out this recent article on Marketwatch.com. In a recent Bankrate survey, 3 out of 5 investors said real estate is the best way to invest money you wouldn’t need for the next 10 years.
A couple observations:
1) It is interesting that the article was published on Marketwatch.com, a site that usually appeals to stock investors
2) This comment was particularly interesting: “Real estate’s experience during the financial crisis (of 2008) appears to be the exception rather than the rule. In every other stock market bear market since the 1950s, the Case-Shiller Home Price Index rose in all but one. And in that lone bear market prior to 2007 in which the index did fall, it did so by just 0.4%.”
If you are interested in building your real estate portfolio with the best investment out there during this time of massive stock market fluctuation, please contact me to discuss how to make that happen!
