Real Estate Tops Best Investment Poll for 7th Year Running

Real Estate Tops Best Investment Poll for 7th Year Running | MyKCM

With Vancouver/Portland area housing in such high demand, it does not come as a surprise that real estate remains a key investment.

Every year, Gallup conducts a survey of Americans to determine their choice for the best long-term investment. Respondents are asked to select real estate, stocks/mutual funds, gold, savings accounts/CDs, or bonds.

For the seventh year in a row, real estate has come out on top as the best long-term investment. Gallup explained:

“Real estate remains the most favored investment to Americans, as has been the case since 2013, when the housing market was on the rebound. More than a third of Americans have named real estate as the top investment since 2016.”

This year’s results indicated 35% of Americans chose real estate, followed by stocks at 21%. The full results covering the last decade are shown in the chart below:Real Estate Tops Best Investment Poll for 7th Year Running | MyKCM

Testimonials

My wife and I were on a quest to purchase a high end distressed bank owned foreclosure property after the market correction in 2008. The process of identifying and reviewing possible homes and finally negotiating an accepted offer would have been possible without Nathan‘s persistence and negotiating skills!
