New Poll Names Real Estate Best Long-Term Investment

Many homebuyers have sat on the fence, waiting out the local real estate market and wondering when the right time to purchase a new home may be. The question is no longer when to purchase a home—with mortgage rates low, NOW is the time— or even if Cleveland area homebuyers should buy a property in Medina or Cuyahoga County. According to a new Gallup poll, real estate is the best long-term investment!

When compared to other investment options like gold, savings accounts, CDs, bond, stocks and mutual funds, real estate emerged as the winner. Just 3 years ago, Americans named gold as the best investment, but the real estate market has since changed. With improving conditions, low mortgage rates, and rising home prices all across the country, real estate is now your best bet when weighing investment opportunities.

The poll ranked views on real estate as an investment by age, with demographics ranging from the 18-29 category to 30-49 to 50-64 and finally 65+ years of age. All four age groups in the poll named real estate as the best long-term investment and even ranking by income, two out of three also agreed.

So, as a homebuyer in Medina, Strongsville, Brunswick, Hinckley, Valley City, Columbia Station, or North Royalton, why should you invest in real estate this year? Consider the following:
