Americans Rank Real Estate Best Investment for 6 Years Running


Like stocks, home values dropped dramatically during the recession but, have rebounded and are worth more now than before The Great Recession. Americans who do not own either - stocks or real property - are more inclined to see real estate (31%) as a better investment than stocks (18%), while 23% choose savings accounts or CDs.


Here’s how Americans rank investments (not just those listed above who do not own real property or stocks):

Additional Highlights:

  • Even with the major U.S. stock indices establishing or nearing record highs in 2019, real estate remains the investment of choice.
  • Real estate has outranked stocks/mutual funds, gold, savings accounts/CDs, and bonds as the best long-term investment among Americans for 6 years running.
  • Perceptions have shifted - stock investors continue to be more positive about real estate than stocks as an investment.
  • Stock ownership is steady but, still has not returned to the number of Americans who were invested in the stock market pre-recession.
  • Of the 4 listed, real estate is the only investment you can also live in!
  • And, as Warren Buffet once said, "Never pay another man's mortgage."
