Today I had the pleasure of meeting with a financial advisor – he’s a great advisor and someone who knows his business really well. He gave me kudos for how my retirement funds have been performing. The interesting thing about the discussion was how great my REAL ESTATE has performed.
Obviously I’m not in his league when it comes to stocks and mutual funds, but I feel like I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have access to some wonderful properties. Buy and hold has been a good strategy. Here’s some objective data that I hope you’ll find helpful if you’re looking for information on comparisons. Another great thing about real estate: YOU GET TO LIVE IN IT! If anything this should be your best reason to buy a home!
