    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
