A Portfolio of Commodities

By
Real Estate Agent with Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales 3090099

Have you ever thought of a home as a commodity?  A commodity can be defined as a raw material or product that can be bought and sold.  A home is not a raw material, but it is certainly built out of many, like a box full of wood, steel, cement, glass and copper.

Over the long term, home prices usually rise along with the cost of the commodities it takes for construction.  While high inventories of housing may be keeping commoditiesprices lower right now, the cost of the raw materials that are intrinsically tied to a home's value are rising, and rapidly. 

With increasingly higher construction costs on the horizon, buying now is an ideal investment, and a hedge against the rising cost of commodities.  Every home is a store of value for all the materials, the land and the labor involved in its construction.  So the long-term value of a home is tightly connected to the cost of its production, making it a very different type of investment from stocks or bonds.

Investing in commodities has always been a great way to make lemonade from the economy's lemons.  And what better way to buy into the commodities market than by purchasing a home?  Sooner or later, home prices will be pushed higher by the rising cost of raw materials, so make your move now!

Interesting twist for a buy now campaign - buying into the commodities market by purchasing a home...

GOOD MORNING GABE!  Interesting way of looking at a home!  It makes sense though - as the cost of materials increase - so will the cost of building or fixing up a home! -- Gabrielle

No, Gabe. I have never thought of a home as a commodity.  It makes sense the way you presented it.  Guess we better go out and buy some of those lemons today and make some lemonade!  Thanks!

Excellent take on the market.  I just went to a seminar and learned about 2-4 amd multi family units.  Great way to get some cash flow and build a portfolio.
