What Savings Group are you in?

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Realty West & Florida Realty Investments CA01938972, FL BK3090225

Recently, the California Association of Realtors® (CAR) posted the flyer below depicting savings trends for Americans. The data is based on studies from Bankrate.com and Financial Health Network.

The savings rates, in my opinion,are dismal and based on inflation rates, those who are not properly prepared for the future by saving prodigiously, will suffer dramatically.

Your thoughts?

So what group do you fall in? Of course, no answer necessary.

As much as possible is my answer. I am never specific...this is so hard in real estate because our incomes vary so much.

Sandy and Norm I was surprised to see that the highest category is the one I am in.

I definitely am in the higher savings group, but it seems that I can never save up enough for the rainy days in real estate.

We do what we feel good about, and we hate the idea of being categorized or doing what others do.  A

I know what you are saying, Alexandra. We are all victims of datamining and this is another result of that. Don't shoot me; I only passed it along!

I was fortunate enough to start in real estate with a healthy 401k from my time in corporate America and because I made some very wise investments in the 80s when interest rates were high I have benefited from them down the road.
