93% Of Americans Agree: Real Estate Is A Better Investment Than Stocks

A recent Survey of Consumer Finances study released by the Federal Reserve reveals the net worth of homeowners is forty times greater than that of renters. If you’re wondering if homeownership is a good investment, the study clearly answers that question, and the answer is yes.

“Housing represents the largest asset owned by most households and is a major means of wealth accumulation, particularly for the middle class.”
