Buying a house now could be the best hedge against inflation …EVER!

My friend Richard says it well!!

Buying a home in 2010 is a hedge against inflation.Most economists agree that recent rashes of government spending will ultimately lead to significant inflation. The constant infusion of cash that is intended as a short-term solution will eventually have a long-term effect on the value of a dollar.

One of the best hedges against this expected phenomenon is the purchase of a home during one of the best buyer’s markets in history. With low, low property prices and record low fixed interest rates, there has never been a better time to buy a home.

But if one takes into consideration the fact that a mortgage may be repaid with inflated dollars, the deal only gets better and better. By fixing housing expenses now in terms of the 2010 dollar of today, home buyers will be immune from contrary inflationary economic forces for as long as they own their property.

It’s a tremendous way to protect wealth and to meet your housing needs for decades to come.

Great post Lisa.......I've been telling my wife that now is the time to move to Florida.  Get twice as much house for half as much money (compared to upstate NY).  She thinks I'm joking, but not really!!!
