Real Estate Tops Best Investment Poll for 5th Year Running

Have you wondered whether to keep your money in the stock market or invest in Real Estate?  According to this Gallup poll wonder no longer; real estate is the top investment for your money.  I was interested that it topped the polls again when so much of the country is suffering from a lack of inventory and increasing prices.  That makes Southwest Florida real estate an even better investment as we lots of inventory and our sellers are lowering their prices to get offers.  Why not invest in your future now and earn income on your investment until you retire and decide to use the property yourself?  There are lots of people looking for annual and seasonal rental and I can guarantee you a return on your investment in Naples real estate.  Call me today!

Real Estate Tops Best Investment Poll for 5th Year Running | MyKCM

Every year, Gallup surveys Americans to determine their choice for the best long-term investment. Respondents are given a choice between real estate, stocks/mutual funds, gold, savings accounts/CDs, or bonds.

For the fifth year in a row, real estate has come out on top as the best long-term investment!

This year’s results showed that 34% of Americans chose real estate, followed by stocks at 26%. The full results are shown in the chart below.

The study makes it a point to draw attention to the contrast in the sentiment over the last five years compared to that of 2011-2012, when gold took the top slot with 34% of the votes. Real estate and stocks took second and third place, respectively, while still in recovery from the Great Recession.

Bottom Line

As the real estate market has recovered, so has the belief of the American people in the stability of housing as a long-term investment.
