If you’ve been watching the news, it’s not uncommon to read that the stock market is down 600 points one day, or up 400 points the next. Sadly, this is due to the fact that the long-awaited correction in the stock market has finally arrived and many analysts are predicting that the stock market could lose up to 2,500 points in value within the next 30 days.
As an investor, one of the biggest questions that you need to ask yourself is if you should pull your money out of stocks and put it into real estate.
If you’ve been unsure about getting involved in real estate investing, this article will provide you with several reasons why real estate investing is the best investment to make right now compared to the wild roller coaster ride that is the stock market.
Over the last 20 years, real estate has been one of the most stable investments in the United States, and that stability is only expected to continue because the success of real estate is not tied to the success of the economy, it’s tied to the geographic area where the rental property is located, and of course the demand for rental properties as well.
Thankfully, in 2018-2019, the Houston Texas area continues to be one of the most highly desirable areas for relocation in the United States Because Houston has a thriving jobs market and a lower cost of living than what can be found in other states like California.
Another great reason to invest in real estate is cash flow. Over the last 20 years, rental properties in Houston and across the United States have continued to produce consistent cash flow on a monthly basis even during turbulent times like the .COM bust of the late 1990’s, or the beginning of the Great Recession in 2008.
If you had your money invested in stocks over the last 20 years, imagine how much money you could have avoided losing how you been invested in rental properties instead.
Hedge Against Inflation
Last of all, but most important, another great reason to invest in Real Estate is that rental properties are an excellent hedge against inflation because, when your tenant moves out of your rental property, you can raise the rent so that it’s comparable to what other rental properties in the same area are renting for.
