According to a new Gallup poll, Americans are more confident in real estate than they are in gold. Real estate went up from 19 percent in 2011 to now 25%. The confidence in gold dropped to 24%. The newly booming real estate market has helped Americans stray away from wasting money renting an apartment, and gave them the oportunity to own a home of their own. High up on the list as well are stocks and savings accounts. So buyers, now is a great time to start looking for your perfect home!
