Why One Stock Market Investor Prefers Real Estate

REvsS

 

Stock market or real estate?  Its a long standing debate in the mind of many Americans.

With the recent up and down nature of the stock market, you might wonder if being in stocks is such a good idea.  Stock investor Damian Maldonado wondered the same on his post over on TheStreet.com.

His big take away: that even if real estate goes down, it goes down MUCH more slowly.

“Housing has had its hard moments in the past decade, but even then the declines come over a matter of months. The prices are sticky, as economists say. You never get that the eyes-glued-to-CNBC, I-can’t-look-at-my-portfolio, full stomach-gut punch you get from stocks collapsing across the board.”

In addition, if stocks drop? Interest rates are likely to drop as well, meaning effectively homes become more affordable.
