Real Estate Investment Returns


The current housing downturn is one of the worst in the past fifty years. Key signs of a recovery is the housing stock shrinking, and home prices falling at a slower pace.


In Atlanta the purchase of real estate may still be a good investment.


Between 1975 and 2007 single-family home prices grew just 1.8% above the rate of inflation, according to a study by Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies.


By comparison stocks have historically returned more than 7% over inflation.




None of this means purchasing real estate is a bad buy as some markets returns are closeror above those of the stock market average.



What the numbers don’t show is the value of having a place to liveas you have to live somewhere.


It means that it may not be the growth machine that it has been touted as.


A different real estate product is worth another look.



Real Estate Investment Trusts, or REITs, give you a basket of largely commercial properties.


They pay a healthy income and can diversify your stock-and-bond portfolio to lower overall volatility.



They are worth considering if you have no debt, a properly funded emergency fund, a properly funded retirement plan and you are in a strong cash position.
